    09.15 and nothing yet - I'm fed up with omelettes, but there's little alternative from what I see in my 'fridge today, however, I do spy one small rasher of bacon! I will try and resist the few remaining slices of rye bread.
    Lunch will almost certainly be, as it was yesterday, a salad with some ham, olives and cheese and my evening meal will consist of whatever my wife churns out, with me avoiding the pasta or rice or bread products or sauces or potatoes etc., etc., ad nauseam

    My daugher in law is Thai and we have a great time of it with her teaching me recipes. Sometimes the simplest things can be so good:
    Thai style omlette:
    couple of eggs and one desert spoon of soy sauce per egg - beat.
    Crumble in some pork mince, breaking up with a fork until no big lumps (not sure how much just see what it looks like).
    Add oil to pan and pour in - don't fiddle with it, just let it cook.

    We had that with stir fried vegetables: broccoli, spring onions, bok choi and flavoured with garlic, ginger, chilli and a splodge of soy sauce.

    There are, I'll admit, some real positives to the LCHF diet - other than the diabetes control thingy - I love black pudding! Therefore;

    Breakfast - black pudding and Camembert omelette, cup of tea (black, unsweetened)
    Mid morning - mug of coffee with cream
    Lunch - green salad (lots of leafy things, tomatoes, olive oil) and a pork and apple burger - diced and mixed in, mug of coffee with more cream

    Aren't I a good boy!? I hope so, as today's BG reading first thing was 12.9.

    Evening meal tonight is in the lap of the Gods - more correctly, my wife's desire to cook something. Probably a curry of some description. I'll continue to be a good boy, however, and not eat any rice, potatoes or anything else vaguely high in carbs. (sigh - in fond memory of toast for breakfast)

    @1954jessy are you testing before you eat and 2 hours afterwards as this should give you some clues as to what is raising your BS. If you are trying to lower your BS it would be best to try and drop the Special K Nourish altogether as it is quite high carb.

    Good evening,

    4:00 ante meridian: thinly-sliced- Tomato thinly sliced tomato on 2 slices of Bloomer white, crusty bread with sesame seeds sprinkled over the crust giving the bread a nice nutty flavour.

    6:30 ante meridian: - Tomato sandwich.

    11:45 ante meridian: - Tomato sandwich.

    1:15 post meridian: - Tomato sandwich.

    2:56 post meridian: - 1 deep pan pepperoni pizza with sliced pepperoni, tomato puree, grated cheese, chopped red sweet pepper and finely chopped onion.

    8:41 post meridian: - Blood glucose level:- 6.3 millimoles per litre.

    8:47 post meridian: - Tomato sandwich.

    I have also drunk 8 glasses of cold tap water, 2 mugs of tea and 5 mugs of instant coffee all at different times of the day. The hot drinks had coffee mate light as whitener and 1 and a half teaspoonfuls of sucralose granulated sweetener each.

    Yours faithfully,

    Johnny Baker, a sufferer of Asperger Syndrome, type 2 diabetes mellitus (insulin-resistant), minimal pain in the back caused by wear-and-tear, essential hypertension, pure hypercholesterolaemia, encopresis, nocturnal enuresis, idiopathic megarectum and hyponatrema.
