  • Last night I cooked a quorn quarter pounder burger, put it in a low carb roll that I made using the infamous "green bread" recipe (not moving to rice protein until I've finished all my hemp protein powder), put a spot of mustard on it and ate it! Oh it was lovely - I haven't had anything in- a-...

    When looking at food labels do you go by carbs in grams or do you take into account of which sugars?

    [IMG] There cannot be enough brownie in life, especially when that brownie has to be shared. Avocado brownie is rich and dense and squidgy and just a bit wicked with a creamy chocolate ganche topping. The cacao nibs and chia seeds add a little extra crunch. Share this if you have to but...

    I remember the first time I woke up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. I woke up the next morning thinking 'that was odd'. I was 26 and back playing club rugby. It happened the next night and the next and eventually became routine. I quickly learned to slide out of bed, find the loo...
  • I accepted a statin prescription at my last review. I did this as my cholesterol had jumped to 8.0, which I thought was bad news, even though I don't have the ratio figures. The trouble is I still feel uneasy about taking the thing. What troubles me most is I have a liver that is already out...

    Wouldn't it be nice if, from the moment you made a renewed commitment to Doing Things Properly, Life figured it would give you just a few weeks to hit the ground running and get yourself into a new routine without any extra nonsense to think about? Some people fantasise about the perfect lover,...

    5.8 at 7am On Sunday I did a long fast walk. 7 km walk in 1 hour 15 and ended feeling terrible. Shaking, sick in the stomach, headache, wanted to eat but couldn’t decide what. Blood sugars got down to 3.6 I’m diet controled and don’t eat carbs in general. I ended up with a good handful of...

    I have been training hard since the day after Boxing Day, but three weeks ago, a disgustingly selfish eejit (at work) gave me her cold. I'm asthmatic. It went to my chest and it's taken this long to get to a stage where I have wanted to exercise - and yes - I'm T2 - I swear by it, but the...
  • A lot of people on this forum eat Greek yoghurt, rather than the standard natural yoghurt, on a regular basis as it typically contains more protein and less carbohydrate/sugar. I was on holiday in France last week, enjoying a tasty Danone 'Greek style' yoghurt for my breakfast when I realised I...
  • I was diagnosed with type 2 late last year and i started off following the NHS guidelines about what my diet should be. Well i found that i was getting quite high spikes when eating certain foods which i was told were slow releasing. Porridge, the most basic type. I tried skimmed milk and almond...
