can't get portions under control,
Looks like your doing great @Ditto and the menu looks much lower carb, so maybe focus on that and not worry too much about the portion sizes yet - one step at a time. If you can increase the veggie portion sizes though, it should help you feel less hungry.

increase the veggie portion sizes
LOL no! I'm trying to decrease the veggie, I had two bags of sprouts with just a few taken out for Mum, so full I couldn't move for hours. :D I'm soooooo greedy agh. Sprouts to me are like cream cakes or sweeties to some people. When I was 18 and dragging myself up my treat on payday was boil in the bag fish and Brussels sprouts. I know! I've always been weird.

7:00 Breakfast 2: Ryvita with ~10g of cheese. ~80 calories and 8 grams of carbs
11:30 Lunch: 2 fried eggs with 2 sliced thick buttered brown bread (assuming 10g butter). ~500 calories 40g carbs.
19:00 Dinner: 2 Quorn southern fried chicken burgers and a 230g tin of peas. ~400 calories and 35 carbs.
+200ml whole milk (calcium) : ~130 calories and 10 carbs

Admittedly until I get a blood sugar monitor I have no idea what this is doing to my blood sugar. It's fewer calories than I was expecting but I haven't been very hungry recently so I haven't minded.

My wife was looking for some new fish recipes for us that would be low enough in terms of carbs to be OK for me too and came across one for a Cod & Choritzo stew. Good choice - it was delicious and filling, and only takes 30 minutes to prepare, cook and dish up.

She got this recipe from the BBC Good Food website.

I have been craving steak and chips.
So I found a way to have them and they don't have any effect on my blood sugars at all!
5.4 mmols before eating, 5.4 straight afterwards and still 5.4 two hours later!!
I even checked on my other testing kit just in case my new one was telling fibs!!

After this meal plus dessert of some 10 cal raspberry jelly with a small amount of summer berries and erythritol and lemon juice melted in the microwave to make a fruit sauce and with a serving spoonful of Greek Yoghurt - my blood sugars were 5.4mmol/litre and stayed there an hour and two hours afterwards.
Such a treat to have steak and chips and it not budge my blood sugars at all!

I had three small keto ginger biscuits I made myself for breakfast and a chunk of tinned ham for lunch. I have been quite busy doing house work and reorganising my cupboards so didn't have time or energy for food much today.
Drinking decaff coffee and tea all day.

My main meal today.

Steak, tzatziki, half a tomato and keto fries!!!
My husband Andy isn't diabetic or on a keto diet but he had the same and he likes them better than potato chips!!
They are much easier to make too. Only three ingredients: 1. Almond flour/ground almonds 2. xanthan gum 3. Water and olive oil to fry them in. Tons easier to make than potato chips - about half an hour from start to finish including the 15 minute rest period - and no peeling or chopping.

Recipe and method for keto fries - serves two generous portions - so you could halve the amounts for one.
100g almond flour/ground almonds,
3 teaspoons of xanthan gum mixed well,
6 tablespoons of hot water.


Mix together to get a dough ball then let it sit for 15 minutes. It will be sticky don't worry it settles a bit after sitting. If you wet your hands or oil them it is easier to handle.

Then oil a silicon baking sheet or other nonstick surface type baking sheet and oil a silicon rolling pin ( use a glass bottle as an alternative) and roll the dough out to about two millimetres thick. Then cut into thin fry shapes with an oiled knife.
Heat olive oil in a deep large heavy based frying pan.
Gently put the fries into the oil one by one and fry on a lowish heat until they puff a little and turn golden - turning them over once they harden a bit so they go golden all over.
Do a few at a time and transfer them onto kitchen paper or re-usable kitchen roll if you have it. Repeat until they are all done and then put them al into the pan at once to get them all hot together.
Then serve them with your condiments of choice.

I saw the YouTube video for the Keto French fries, too, (’Heavenly Fan’ if anyone wants to see what else she does...she does vegan Keto), and was very sceptical. However, I made the coconut flour fries and was amazed at how good they were. And so deliciously crunchy as well. A fantastic substitute for the real thing!

Yes!! I made the coconut ones first a couple of nights ago. I prefer the almond ones - the yield was much higher - for me I got twice as many fries out of the almond recipe (50g of coconut in the other recipe and more water) and the mouthfeel was closer to the steak fries I was hoping for. My coconut ones were a tad more biscuity.
