LC – Low Carb. For Diabetics, this is consuming carb grams in the sub 50g per day range.

OFBG – Overnight Fasting Blood Glucose reading, before consuming anything to eat or drink (water and black coffee is ok).
Normal Blood Sugar Range = 70 – 100, however Non-Diabetic Average is approximately 83….so this is my target.
