Fasting Blood Sugar


I have started LCHF since the last 3 months. My Hb1Ac was 6.8% when I started and in March it came down to 6%. Surprisingly I have not lost weight. I am 56/5ft 9in and 90 kgs. My daily meals are

Breakfast: Cheese Omellete, Tea and one or half Marie Gold Biscuit

Morning Snack: Walnuts( 4-5 half ) and Almonds ( around 20 Pcs) and Black Coffee

Lunch: One Kala Chana & Soya Chapati and a Subzi or Paneer or Egg Curry on different days of the week

Evening Snack : Cheese Cube, Black Coffee

Dinner: I generally have 2-3 Small Vodka ( total 90-100 ml) with plain soda, Peanuts ( around 50-100 gms) and main Dish of either Chicken, Fish or Paneer after which I have green tea.

Most of the days i walk after dinner for 30 minutes. In the morning 3-4 days of the week I go for a jog ( 3-4 kms) or a brisk walk.

My problem is most of the days my FBS is around 104-115 and very rarely <100. Initially when i started LCHF it used to < 100 ( around 92-95). After meals it is always around 120-130. In case of heavy meals someday after a party it touched 151 once.

Despite my best efforts my FBS is not coming below 100. I use Dr. Morepen Glucometer for testing at home. I did get new supply of Strips last month and the reading has never come below 100.

Am I doing something wrong here?? Thanks
