What are normal/good BG levels for Atkins.
I borrowed my mom's tester to see what my levels were. This morning before any coffee or food it was 102. An hour after I had coffee and ate it was 77. Is this good? Am I staying low enough to burn fat?

I am a diabetic but not an expert but as far as I know your blood sugar doesn't really effect fat burning. From what I remember if you run high then you could start to lose weight but not from low sugars. A normal person runs 70-90.
The best person to talk to is your diabetic Dr.
I have been doing Atkins for only 5 days and my sugars have decreased to under 200. I am hoping that I can get off meds eventually. My Dr never told me what he wants my numbers to be but he wants my A1C's down below 7.5 where it is at 8 now. Not sure this helped at all.

I am not a diabetic. I guess I phrased my post wrong... about burning fat. I really wanted to know if I was consuming too much sugar!.

Your blood glucose readings are not going to be able to tell you accurately whether you are consuming too much sugar. If you are healthy, your pancreas will rapidly release insulin to put much of the sugar in your bloodstream into storage.

You're not hijacking Mummy; it's fine. The one's encouraging Mom to have a Marlboro were intriguing. My how some times have changed; but others haven't.

Hello I'm new ... with questions.
FatSecret has my RDI set 125 calories higher than my armband pedometer monitor, so FS is a little more generous. Maybe FS wants to make losing weight not as strenuous or less painful. I rarely care about ...

Anyone tried Quest Nutrition products?
I agree, they are delicious, but delicious makes me eat more than I should. So I just leave them alone.
