@freesia thats good, glad you enjoyed it! Sounds lovely, don't forget to send my invite next time! ;)

Feel sorry for poor Bruce, he didn't want to risk anything this morning so didn't eat until 12:30 and had forgotten his surroundings etc 3 times before then cause he couldn't take his epilepsy meds!

Mines is made at like 8:30am the previous morning and kept in the fridge but being up at 5:45am its a tad chilly so I throw it in the microwave and add the peanut butter when its hot so it goes gooey lol xx
That sounds good. I don't generally like peanut butter but in porridge I'm sure I would.

Not eating much. Not so much due to tooth as I can chomp on the other side, more because I feel poorly all over. I go dentist tomorrow. I hate olives they're horrid but luv peanut butter. Today I had a bit of left-over Chinese and for dinner some spag bog. Didn't want any of it really.

I hate food. It's the bane of my life. Last night, feeling like death, but making an effort, I made my Mum her tea and when I presented it to her on her little table she said "Oh hell." o_O I know I'm not much of a cook but good grief.

If you don't want it why not give it a miss.

Hello @Ditto, sorry to hear you are feeling so poorly, hope the visit to the dentist starts to improve things for you -- and I'm sure that your Mum appreciates what you do really!! - It's just that they have a strange way of showing it sometimes, I know mine certainly did.

So ... back to the main message line:
Breakfast: Egg, tomato and turkey rasher
Lunch: Prawn and cucumber sandwich made with LiveLife bread
Supper: Sausage and mash : 3 Heck pork sausages (less than 1g carb each), cauliflower mash, home made tomato 'sauce'
Morning reading 5.6

I caved in to my bod demanding a carby noodle bolus ...

B: My usual bowl with 5 strawberries + 10 walnut halves + 35g of pumpernickel + juice of half a lemon. Extra large soy flat white + 30g chia seeds.

L: Not-my-usual chicken pho (ie Vietnamese soup with chicken/rice noodles/bean sprouts/coriander). Rice noodles give my pancreas a real work-out - I tested an hour after eating and I was 8.5, up from 5-something. NBD and plenty of non-diabetics would see the same, but quite a lot higher than I'm used to and I could *feel* it - all jangly. Plus about twice my usual daily sodium intake, all by itself.

A: Soy flat white + 30g chia seeds.

D: My boring-yummy-usual bowl with 60g edamame, leaves, snowpeas, one avocado, couple of dates torn up, 30g pomegranate arils, half a pear sliced, juice of one lemon.

Random munching: a carrot; almonds.

Walking: lazy 11k steps.

I reversed my diabetes by following the 800 calorie VLCD.
I'm pleased to say it's now being rolled out as a treatment by the NHS, so hopefully more can achieve the same success.

I don't think your meant to go back to a carb loaded diet, you don't really reverse it but can go into remission but if eating a high carb diet it can keep creep up again, do you test after eating these foods?

It's reversed, I can eat anything so long as I don't pile the weight back on.
We shouldn't hijack this thread though.

Well done travellor on the reversal. Kudos.

My diet today was even more dire than usual. I wonder why I don't feel jangly then? I always feel fine. Weird.

No breakfast as dentist at noon. Got an infection so the tooth might have to go but have to speak to the doc first re the angina just in case and stuff. Fancy having to lose a tooth when it's okay, but the infection is underneath it. I need that tooth, I haven't that many left. :(

Giant pig out after. Large block Cadbury's Fruit and Nut. 2 coffee's with milk and sweetener. Bacon, Fried Egg, Fried Onions and Tomato Toasts with Ketchup.

Dinner: Large tray of pepper chips from the Chinese. Half a glass of Lucozade because all the carbs dried me out. Cup coffee with milk.

Snack: half bag McCoy's salt&malt vinegar crisps (those bags are big!)

That's it now, low carb tomoz, honest because that was ridiculous.
