    Breakfast - a protein shake (because I am sick of eggs), lunch - stirfry with cabbage, chicken and thai spices; dinner cauliflower mash with bacon pieces (I love this) and a pork chop, jelly and some melon. This is my first week of low carb but I am finding there are lots of lovely things I can still eat

    This seems really balanced to me. i'm having homemade green smoothie made with almond milk and low fat yoghurt, spinach, chia and golden linseeds, 1/2 avocado and 1/2 apple and stick of celery. i also mix in 20g of rye flakes

    lunch is lentil veg soup, 2 ladles

    dinner is pearl barley with edame beans salad and 100g large prawns with a yoghurt and mint dressing

    snacks are 1 slice german rye bread with a cheese triangle

    i'm using my fitness pal to log all my food and exercise from tracker on my phone

    ive found for me weighing out my food has helped me enormously as before i was not aware of portion size.

    portion control is working for me, tho i do have odd days when i wake up from a nap and have binged. im looking into this to see if it mite be low blood sugar that causes this or it mite be im not eating enough so will increase my protein. or it cud be just got fed up of control but it was hunger related and i cudnt stop.

    fasting blood this am was 7.2 which is good considering i was 14 four weeks ago. i cant wait till i get in the 5's but im seeing diabetic nurse on thursday and gonna speak to her about lowering medication if hba1c is low enough.

    No breakfast, but had "Ovenight Oats" for brunch:

    20g Oats, 200g Natural Yoghurt (Fat Free), 200g Fruit Mix (Blackberry, Strawberry, Blackcurrent, Raspberry).

    I made it last night, which gives the yoghurt time to soak in to the oats/porridge and the fruit to defrost.

    Not too high in carbs for me, but most recipes say 40g oats, which does give me a blood sugar spike.

    Lovely! :)

    Not very good with regular meals but trying to change diet bit by bit.
    Forgot to do readings as rushing around
    Breakfast cappuccino (not good but down to a couple a day compared to what I was drinking)
    Lunch - didn't eat till 3pm - chicken sandwich in wholemeal bread - yogurt - checked blood sugars but not until I go home from work at 7pm and they were 7.9 thought they would have been lower
    Dinner Spag Bolognese and a cappuccino (BS 2 hr post meal 9.2).
    Snack - two digestive biscuits and another cappuccino (oops) will see what the damage is in a bit

    Probably not eating enough - recording food is defiantly making me realise I don't drink enough

    Hi, all, at 12:30 AM on Tuesday 4th July,

    Haven't eaten anything today, yet, but yesterday in the morning when I got my friend Gary's computer back online round his mum's house and fixed the pump in the aquarium, ate a nice meal his mum gave me of 3 rashers of fried, unsmoked back bacon, 2 fried eggs and 2 slices of Tesco Everyday Value white bread with margarine. I also. round there, ate 1 bag of ready salted Walker's potato crisps and had a can of Tesco's own brand Cola, non-Diet.

    Yesterday, late afternoon, early evening, I ate a meat feast deep pan cheesy pizza. It had melted cheese, tomato puree, sweet peppers, minced beef, ham, pepperoni and chopped onion.

    I didn't take my blood glucose yesterday but my fasting blood glucose today at 12:30 AM was 5.3.

    140g homemade bircher museli and a coffee with almond milk.

    Museli = FF Greek Yoghurt, 2 granny smith apples (grated), 100g oats, chopped walnuts [4 or 5 servings]
