I did a search and came up with around 18g in one hash brown. So for me that meal would have more than my daily carb intake in one hit.I wonder how many carbs is in a large Farm Foods hash brown? I told my brother I'd just have the roast chicken and some sprouts for tea and he goes and does me chicken, sprouts, tinned carrots, gravy and one hash brown! It would be churlish to refuse or do people disagree?
You are doing well now Ditto - a pound a day is brilliant.Thank you @NotWorriedAtAll I thought it would be more than that.
I should amend my way of eating to 'lower' carb. It's way lower than what I was eating!
I'm losing weight albeit extremely slowly. Also as soon as I go back to low carb all my ailments start clearing up a bit, so I'm sticking with it as much as I can. Tonight bro has left me a chop dinner with potatoes and gravy. Mum can have it tomorrow.
B: 2 fried eggs, 1 large vine tomato, 3 rashers bacon, 5 big mushroom fried in olive oil, 6 Ryvitas with too much butter on.
L: Half a wrap my daughter didn't want, dunno why I ate it, mindless and a carton Cottage Cheese.
D: Sirloin Steak and salad with beetroot and mixed nuts. I forgot to have my strawberries and cream and I've come home now. I feel cheated!
Usual water and meds. Lost another pound this morning, that's a pound off every day since my birthday.
Snap!! Today was shopping delivery day and I fell on those scratchings like a ravenous beast.Bag of pork scratchings
The reason my figures were so good is because I actually didn't eat many carbs so there wasn't anything to spike them.For real? Really? Good grief. I'd be in double figures.
I have a confession. Not long after my last post I went on a binge, first since my birthday. When I thought about it after when I was gutted at myself I think it was purely comfort eating as I was bothered about some goings on in the day, family stuff. That's the only thing I can think of. So I ate the chop dinner my bro left me and then had ice cream with Ambrosia rice pudding poured over it. Even while I was eating it I was disappointed at myself.
Realised immediately that I wouldn't be getting my solid nights' sleep and that all my symptoms would come back and that I'd be triggered to eat bread which I was but I didn't have any.
B: 2 scrambled eggs, 1 large tomato, 1 garlic bulb (I know!), 2 cans of tuna. Far too much protein but I was trying to fill the void that is me.
L: Another can of tuna with mayo, thinking the fat would fill me up and stop that horrible craving feeling, I just can't stand it.
D: 3 boil in the bag fishes, they're so small these days! With 2 steamed mix veg packets with butter on.
Really I didn't want any of that. I just wanted a tuna butty and a huge bowl of ice cream.
Many thanks for the bread recipe, looks fantastic, low carb baking is still on my to-do list!I took a metformin to counteract the carbs in any case..
I wish. ((hugs))Excellent planning and you have your lifestyle down pat obviously, kudos.
That's interesting. I shan't bother next time then as the side effects are startling to say the least!!! LOLS It is good news though because that means eating the white bread etc now and then in moderation isn't too terrible for my levels.Many thanks for the bread recipe, looks fantastic, low carb baking is still on my to-do list!
Any chance of the recipe for the eclairs?
Just one thing, sadly, taking a metformin with a meal does nothing to counteract the carbs, it just doesn't work that way. We are advised to take with a meal to reduce the possibility of gastric side effects, not to deal with the carbs in that meal.
