Think I might make it on Sunday - nice easy dessert.
Still have a lingering bug. Bed 6.4 FBG 7.1 then got waves in the 8's and low 9's before it came back down.
L. Nothing - living on water and paracetamol
D. More using up - slice ox tongue, mortadella and smokehouse cured ham. 4 tre colori pomodori and an omelette with parsley. Odd combination but I'm trying to use up things I can't freeze.
B. Raspberries and cream
1 hours swimming
L. Camambert and walnuts
D. Chicken, carrots, onions and a cabbage mountain, with gravy. Strawberries and cream.
I had a cabbage mountain last week - could not eat it all.
B: Bacon, scrambled eggs, chia pudding
L: Corned beef & tomato butty on Tesco sunflower & pumpkin bread, melon & a light & free yogurt.
T: Sausage, mushroom & oregano (a recipe from my new Good Food Low Carb recipe book) & some tiny new potatoes. Water.
Tea throughout the day.
update: Just made a milky coffee
Good Food do a low carb recipe book?? How did I miss that one.
Some nice recipes
Well, BG and eating have been all over the place today. Started out at 5.1, which is within my usual FBG range. Morning rise was only 0.4 mmols to 5.5. Usually I then head downwards all day. Not today, up to 6.5 by 10 am and still at 5.8 pre-lunch, despite not eating. Headed down from there, but only slowly. Finally hit 4.7 post dinner. Really odd!
Offsite departmental away-day followed by event at a funder’s office, then to a pub to continue team away-day, so eating all out of kilter.
Breakfast - none
Lunch - Had a large one as knew dinner would be late and bitty. Pret A Manger Tuna Niçoise salad, with some of the French dressing, Pret Egg and Avocado protein pot, Awfully Posh pork crackling.
Dinner - a few slices of salami/cold meat in the pub, 50g almonds. Was still hungry when got home and as BG finally down, had some more Awfully Posh and 2 squares Lindt 90%.
Knew you'd manage to get your way through a massive portion like that @Brunneria, even if it was a battle - you got there
About two ounces of Parmesan and lots of cream in lots of coffee. Tomorrow will probably be a hungry day and I’ve a large pork joint defrosting to roast.
Breakfast and Lunch: Nothing
Dinner: Avocado with prawns, rib steak with goats cheese (ran out of Stilton - won't bother with the goats cheese again though) - plus celeriac 'chips' and salad, 50g Alpro choc icecream
Drinks: Black decaff coffee until lunch time then sparkling mineral water for the rest of the day
Breakfast: Two double decaffeinated espresso with cream and xylitol.
Snack: One Werther's.
Dinner: Half a homemade low-carb roll with mayonnaise and smoked sockeye salmon, half a low-carb roll with philly cheese steak, half an avocado, a cornsalad with Caesar's dressing, parmesan, and two boiled eggs. Desert: One small low-carb peanut butter cookie.
Found out about the wonder of Whey protein ! I looked for some with stevia sweetener and fewer additives and came up with a raspberry one from MyProtein. So have joined the smoothie world after five years of avoidance!
B - protein smoothie with almond milk
L - small salad with cheese and nuts
D - Indian meal out - hence saving up my carbs for
Tandoori chicken with veg
Will just make it to 35/40g carbs for the day. Phew !
Dont know how you guys do it that fast. Not had anything since a coffee at 8am. 9.1 A swim for 45 minutes 10. 1 walk round waitrose. Home for lunch and now 7.7
The first few fasts are the hardest but you do get used to it quite quickly. I don't think I could fast when taking lots of exercise like your 45 min swim, though.
Fbg 8:10 -9.1
Swimming 45 min and a walk around waitrose- missed a test i know.
Thanks chook. Was a lesson for my 2 yr old.
Everytime I scroll past this thread I want an omelette.
A fasting day today.
No breakfast or lunch.
Dinner - marinated chicken (marinade was cream, garlic, onions and herbs) with cauliflower cheese; raspberries and cream. Yum.
