    I am on glucobay and diamacrom as sad as it is I don't know what sort of meds they are. As for my diet I don't care what my doctor says I am going to do what feels right for me and my results although early days say low carb is for me

    i don't eat meat or poultry, but i do eat fish, so that makes a lchf dier a little easier to manage. but i have vegan weeks, and i find tofu with onions, peppers, mushrooms and spinach works a treat. i also eat hummus and lentils, though in moderation, as they do push things up a little, but that doesn't seem to make a difference over a few months or so. when i'm not being vegan i do drink milk, but only occasionally added to tea or coffee, or when i have the odd luxurious cappuccino.

    Hello Karen - a fellow newbie here! I found this website amazing and so good for information and encouragement from everyone. I can't post the link yet but if you look at the Low-carb food list thread, there is a really good food list that I was searching for and which bulkbiker kindly provided. The list has helped me get over the 'what on earth can I eat' panic! There is a lot to learn as oh_dear_me says, and your head will spin (mine did), but the best thing I've found is to not try to take on too much information at once. Also, there are some brilliant recipes out there, including cracker substitutes which might be good for replacing the Vita-Weat. Nil desperandum!
