How did you get it to come down ? Less carbs? Only thing that seemed to work for me

For me I cut out all diet soda and artificial sweeteners. I just use 1 tsp of sugar in my coffee and it works for me. If I go for pizza instead of 2 slices I have 1 and a salad. Try to eat more balanced less carbs and more of the other stuff. It's tough everyday is a challenge. Keep up the good work

Do you eat Greek yogurt ? It's good for you. I like chobani brand myself. Also nuts and berries.
