Yesterday, as a vegetarian, I ate:

Breakfast: Two oatcakes with cottage cheese and a tiny Fromage Frais.
Lunch: Greek salad and a few nuts.
Dinner: 6 spinach and ricotta ravioli with parmesan and olive oil/sage dressing and one square of dark choc., (and a glass of white wine).
Sounds lovely Jill! :)

It can be helpful sometimes to know what sort of things people are eating, as it might give some ideas for a more varied diet. So, I'll start off with what I ate yesterday:

Breakfast - 1 slice buttered Burgen toast (my breakfast every day, I don't like to run with too much in my stomach)

Lunch - two soft-boiled eggs, two slices of buttered Burgen toast soldiers :) Activia yoghurt

Evening meal - home-made spaghetti bolognese and a bounty bar.

I also nibbled on chilli-dusted peanuts through the evening.
breakfast....porridge
lunch....10am cheese and ham roll wholemeal
1pm cheese and ham roll wholemeal
dinner 5pm chicken and ham ommelette with stir fry bean shoots and veg
7pm bannana and low fat yougurt
9.30 bed with the ipad

Breakfast porridge (38g oatmeal/semi skimmed milk) mixed berries
Lunch smoked salmon sandwich made with Burgen. Handful of home grown cocktail tomatoes and mixed leaves.
(Bread brought back form UK so last sandwich for 6 months. The only bread I can get suitable for sandwiches is horrendous American 'sandwich bread here. Alternatives are better just not sandwich shaped)
Dinner: roasted veg.(aubergine, redpepper, onion, courgette) with whiting fillets topped with a little parmesan. New potatoes.

Wow, people don't seem to be eating much at all. It would be interesting to know how many people are trying to lose weight!

I'm trying to lose weight, I'm using Fitday.com to keep track of my nutrition.

Yesterday I got up too late for breakfast.

I had a 9-bar (hemp and seeds with carob topping - more satisfying than a cereal bar and about 12g carbs) and a small banana for brunch.

For a no carb snack I had a couple of slices of quorn.

For dinner I made a huge dish of roasted veg, with green pepper, mushrooms, onion, celery and cherry tomatoes, with a handful of dried apricots for iron and a drizzling of olive oil, and stirred in 50g Alpini light salad cheese. Followed that with a Shape yoghurt and a delicious chocolate orange biscuit.

I wonder if I should do this every day, more likely than keeping a diary!
My results are even more rubbish than usual at the moment, I am trying splitting my Lantus to stop highs in the evening, but it doesn't seem to be working. My Sd has never been lower than 3 and is currently around 4.5+

Breakfast: Branflakes with skimmed milk (I know, I know, but I've had it all my adult life and it never used to be a problem!)
Lunch: Cheese & onion wholemeal sandwich, apple
Dinner: Roasted home-grown vegetables (courgettes, tomatoes,onions) spoonful of harissa, 3 small new potatoes, fruit salad of raspberries, strawberries, orange. Chocolate biscuit at friends house later.

High all day, corrections before meals, Hypo at midnight - why??

Breakfast: Bowl of All Bran and Semi-skimmed milk (high fibre breakfast for stomach condition) :)
Snack: a juicy red apple
Lunch: wholemeal toast; low fat cottage cheese with chili & fresh prawns
Dinner: Homemade shepherds pie with lean mince.

Drank between 3 - 4 pints of water with lemon, and tea with semi-skimmed milk.

Wasn't usually my 5 a day meal but OH makes the most fantastic shepherds pie and it was a treat...

Due to stomach condition have to ensure I eat foods that are easily digestable and high in fibre...:rolleyes:

Breakfast yesterday was a 9 bar and a small banana.

Lunchtime a couple of slices of quorn, a nectarine and a mug of cocoa made with soy milk.

Afternoon snack - bag of sunbites.

Dinner a large salad with romaine lettuce, celery, grated carrot, red pepper, white cabbage, cucumber and cherry tomatoes (in which I totally overestimated the carb content) with a low carb wrap with toasted cheese, followed by a large orange.

Sorry to hear you're going through it at the mo. Might there be any advantage in 'eating boring' for a while (at least for some meals) to reduce variables?

Are you fasting-testing your basal tweaks? (broken record!) Only asked cos I had a crazy period at the start of our holiday where suddenly (over around 2 days) my basal requirements rose from 10ish u a day to over 14u! The less predictable holiday eating made it much harder to spot, but things have been way more settled since (despite including just as many bonkers meal variations). I had to just wing it rather than test properly, but overnights suggest I've ended up with it about right.

Hope you get off the gluco-coaster soon. Sounds no fun at all.
