B - back on 1 Burgen toast and 1 boiled egg.
L- 3 small homemade grilled lamb seekh kebabs and salad.
T- Grilled chicken salad and 1 spicy lamb chop.
Snacks- only about 22 Almonds all day.

I think I win on the most repetitive daily food eater and most boring, I can't believe what I used to eat 5 weeks ago, just the variety was great.

What sort of diet plan are you eating to?

None, I don't believe in diets. They don't work. You find a way of eating that suits you and your body for life imho. I'm still working at it. :D Today was a bust that's for sure. :oops:

My 'plan' at the moment is low carb (my idea of low carb that is), 2 meals a day at 11 and 5 or as near as possible, I have had to give up my breakfasts which could be as early as 4 in the morning! I read Breakfast Is A Dangerous Meal. I take something from every nutrition/diet programme I watch and every nutrition book I read. :D I also take note of everything on here as the peoples are very knowledgeable. I aim to walk daily.

My father told me that breakfast was the best meal of the day, bacon and eggs
mushrooms are healthy - your "whole packet of cheese" will put weight on diets
like slimming world ones do work for some people and are healthy way of eating
also the diabetic meals on this site are a good balance also I am only trying to
help you it is not meant as a criticism so please don't take it badly another tip
if you shop at Iceland their web-site lists all the ingredients in their food and also
gives you the carb content., a useful tool even if you dont shop there
so if you do fancy a ready meal you can check the carbs before you buy
your doing your best so hoping your not offended xx

My other half doesn't believe in diets as his view is that a diet by implication is something people regard as having a start and an END which is often why they don't work. So it really should be a way of life, it needs two different words.

How true this is I don't know, but the reason people always cut a cross in the base of sprouts before cooking was that they were regarded as being the food of the devil and you had to protect yourself.:)

B: bacon, scrambled egg, tomato, thin slice toast
L: ryvita, pate, yellow pepper, tomato, cheese, few nuts, clementine
D: chicken thai curry, salad, apple crumble with cream
Drinks as usual, square dark hazelnut choc

Allotment visit but no walk today, but my trousers did do 30 steps in the night on the bedroom chair, how can that happen?

@RirisR I don't know where your comment has gone but I got an email notification and I'd love to know what you looked for on them

Asda example

Tesco example

There are very few products on online supermarkets that don't state ingredients or nutrition values, it's what I used to make my shopping list before I went shopping when I was first diagnosed in 2016 and what I've been using for online orders from Morrison's throughout the current situation so I know quite a bit about the subject

Glass of water with a dash of ACV and a splash of low cal cola with chia seeds and milled mixed seeds (Lidl) mixed in. This is my fibre drink to keep my digestive system regular... I was using psyllium husk but ran out and thought I would try these milled seeds instead and seem to work fine.
Coffee with butter :oops: as I ran out of cream!... Can you tell I am in need of going shopping!! It is 3 weeks today since I hit the supermarket which is a record, even for me.

Brunch....
Curried spinach (spinach bhaji) with onions, tomatoes, garlic and spices with 2 boiled eggs.
Glass of water with a splash of flavoured water in it (Lidl elderflower and Mexican lime).
Square of dark 70% Raspberry Lidl chocolate with a spoonful of peanut butter.

Mid afternoon snack 2x bags of Gruntled salt and vinegar Pork Scratchings. Two!! Shocking I know! :eek: These things are horribly addictive but tongue gets pickled after second bag so no chance of being tempted for a third!

Evening...
A glass of rose wine and some mixed olives, sundried tomatoes and feta chunks.

A dark chocolate digestive to raise my levels to go to bed and a glass of water.
