Yesterday
Same as Sunday up until tea
T - smoked basa, baby potatoes, steamed broccoli and a bar of moser roth 85%, pint of water
mug of coffee
Bed - 4 oat nobblies

Was seeing a post on a Keto group on Facebook which made absolutely no sense, poster said - am I allowed to have things like Robinson's diluting, it says no carbs but it's probably full of sugar, I'm like WTAF do you have no brain! Sorry if that offends but I'm an honest person and say it how it is

Can't remember exactly what I ate yesterday but pepperami and string cheese figured strongly - oops.

Today:
Breakfast - chaffles and bacon and decaff coffee black unsweetened.

Lunch: Steak, microwaved cabbage and keto sponge cake with blackberry chia seed jam and double cream.
Tesco sparkling lemon and lime flavoured water to drink.

Will be chewing zero calories gum for the rest of the evening - so I count that as exercise :D

Fasting BG 5

Waking brew or to until lunch. The milk in the tea tends to keep my BG from dipping too low before lunch.
Lunch: 2 egg omelette with mushrooms, ricotta cheese and spinach
Dinner: Chicken cooked with onions, turmeric, ginger, spices with greek yoghurt stirred in with greens
Greek Yoghurt and half chopped pear.

BG levels are really stable but I feel rubbish - nausea, shakey - drinking lots of water but not sure whether going this low carb, low carb is working for me.

I'd sell my granny for some toast this evening..... :(

If the Low Carb is new some people report they get what is known as Carb Flu!

I think maybe you are a bit low on calories as well as carbs there.
Are you having plenty of fat because depending on how you are cooking your food there doesn't look to be enough there. You will also need more salt and more liquid because when you eliminate carbs from your diet your body cannot hold on to liquid the way it did on a carb fuel diet and so you need to keep your liquids up or you get dehydrated.

Very low carb works to make you use up fats as a fuel. If you don't eat fats then the switch over doesn't work well and you can end up metabolising protein instead and that will give you headaches and make you feel awful and can strain your liver too and if you aren't taking in enough calories it could lead to your body metabolising muscle which is also not good.
Ricotta cheese isn't high enough fat - better with cheddar.
Is your Greek yoghurt 10% fat? It will need to be and the chicken should have the skin on but even then you would need more fat like butter to cook the veg in and maybe a spoonful of double cream in your food or coconut oil in your cooking. Or make some fat bombs with whipped double cream and cocoa powder and some sweetener if you need it.

Ooh! Plum and cinnamon does sound good! What make/brand are they? I find fruit teas are often a bit wishy washy but that sounds like it might have some bite!

@rebrascora they are in a selection of Christmas teas from Fortnum and Mason (I think an unwanted Christmas gift).

I quite like the twinings fruity teas they seem to have a stronger flavour than Tetley, had a pineapple one the other week- it was an odd choice and yes tasted just like pineapple!
