    Does everyone else find that they are drinking much more water on this diet than they did before?

    Before I started this I drank a bit less than I do now, but rant to the loo every half hour. Now I drink a lot more but run tt he loo less?

    Anyway today:
    No breakfast
    Lunch - a slice of Black Eye (it's Lorne sausage with black pudding in the middle - made by our local craft butcher), two free range eggs and a square of 90% choccy
    Snack while driving - a punnet of raspberries
    Snack before feeding and stabling horses - apple slices and tablespoon almond butter
    Supper - chicken curry (onion, fresh ginger and chilli and spices, coconut milk, ground almonds) with a small amount of red rice.

    I've stepped up an extra snack in the day time because I was getting quite cold and too hungry.
    Also I'm using my local butcher so much more rather than supermarket "mystery meat". Not as cheap, but so much better

    My first Lidl roll! Eaten with tuna pate and a generous amount of mixed salad leaves, also from Lidl. Perhaps more importantly there is a Lidl being built 15 minutes walk away. Can't wait.

    Breakfast at 7.15am One boiled egg (didn't have time to eat more!)

    Snack at 1.15am/lunch 1.10pm Shared between both: Few prawns, 6 tiny tomatoes, 1 avocado, small piece mozzarello and small piece brie.

    5pm snacked on 4 brazil nuts (zumba at 6.45, so no tea until after then)

    Tea later in evening will be: pan fried in strips wild goose breast with mushrooms, peppers, mange tout and spinach.

    BS reading when I came home from work, walking about 1/2 mile the long way, 6.1 :)
    Hoping that the walk to zumba, then the class and a walk home will take my readings down more. Its that dreaded liver dump in the morning that gets me. Will maybe try a piece of brie before I go to bed?

    Breakfast was spinach, mushrooms, 2 bacon rashers, 2 fried tomatoes and 2 fried eggs. Lunch was fish in parsley sauce, mash and peas. Dinner was chilli con carne and cauliflower rice. Snacked on celery and peanut butter. Only just started this way of eating but am enjoying it.
