When I get to goal weight I shall experiment with breads to see if I can get away with a slice a day. Mind you, saying that, we don't seem to sell low carb bread around here (Sale). There used to be a Lidl in Salford where you could get low carb buns but I'm not sure if they still do them. There's no way I could make my own, I had to bake all my pancake mix in one big roasting dish to get rid of it, but the birds luv it. :D

@grovesy Wonder why they stopped? I would imagine they were very popular.

I seem to be taking over this thread. I hope not as I like to read what others are doing. I am such a LOUD mouth. :rolleyes:

Weight 14 6.2 Tum 49 1/2
Not long after getting up - 7.0 @ 7.30am / pint water / Nescafe
Brunch @ 11.30: can of Baxters pea and ham soup / pint water with meds / 6.2 @ 15.23
Dinner: pint water / an entire cauliflower! the whole bag of grated cheese, with cheese sauce from a packet and probably enough for at least three people / pint water

Wouldn't you think I'd be sick having all that? I was just a tad full which didn't last long and then I felt fine. No hope for me basically I'm just a greedy pig. I think I need to be taking my bg in a regular fashion to keep me accountable.

The stupid milkman didn't come with the eggs so I went from early dinner yesterday till gone 1 today and was ravenous so snack going round Tescos, pkt thin turkey slices, the checkout lady asked "Were you hungry?" :D
Brunch: tuna corn paste salad with beetroot, caesar dressing and an 'ancient' bun and potato salad and coleslaw / bowl Franks' diabetic ice cream / pint water with meds / Nescafe with single cream and a sweetener (with family while watching the biopic about the Man City German footballer who broke his neck and carried on playing! Cracker of a film).
Dinner: pint water / the rest of the salad and stuffs, it was too much to eat all at once... / pint water / 8.4 @ 23.02

A piggy day and I put a pound on overnight, not surprisingly. I won't do this again, silly.

A big portion of cauliflower cheese but I am sure there are more calorific and carb laden options! Cauliflower on it's own should be fine in whatever quantity although it might have certain - ahem- "side effects" which make it less pleasant for others to be with you in an enclosed space

I prefer to eat the Nachos on the plate, but there was a monster load in the centre of the table!

I wants to eat that food! Looks substantial and satisfying. I'm soooooo hungry... :D Thanks for that @travellor If I knew it was heart I wouldn't eat it, but I'd eat it if I didn't know and enjoy it too, no doubt. I won't eat kidneys, heart, tongue or lambs' fries! My sister had those years ago by mistake. :D My auntie used to luv a pig's trotter. :oops:

Weight 14 7.6 Tum 49 1/2
Not long after getting up - 7.7 @ 6.08am / pint water / Nescafe
Brunch: 2 Bird's Eye thin beefburgers, 2 eggs scrambled with olive oil, garlics, Caeser dressing / pint water with meds
Dinner: pint water / small can Heinz tomato and basil soup / pint water / 2 hard boiled eggs

I was poorly and couldn't get out for low carb victuals even though we have a supermarket just across the road. This is where it falls down if you shop daily and only have one days worth of food in the house. I didn't want to eat anyways when feeling sick. Should there be an apostrophe after 'days'?

I will happily eat anything apart from brains, and possibly eye balls, after growing up through the cjd era.
If we killed the animal to eat it, it only seems right that we should do to me.
(And who doesn't like a good old steak and kidney pie?)
