      Hi Astronomer,
      Your calorie intake is low. You should be eating 2000 a day. Think about adding some fruit, diet yoghurts & lower carb ready meals if you don't like cooking. When I'm in a hurry, I buy a cooked rotisserie chicken from a supermarket & salad from their salad bar. Mini quiches are useful, with coleslaw & new potatoes. I'm sure you'll be happier relaxing the diet a tad. I wish you good health.

      Hello,
      LC eating can be monotonous. I no longer lchf...it wasn't sustainable long term for me. Now, I eat anything, but I use portion control to minimise BG spikes. I eat a healthy diet, including all fruits, polish spelt rye bread, wholegrain cereals, wholemeal scones etc. I also have a takeaway once a week..half a portion & share the rest. Maybe give eating to your meter via portion size a go. Good luck.
      Alison.

        I've gone back to more normal eating habits. Alpen No Added Sugar muesli for breakfast, a Boots meal deal for lunch(sandwich, crisps, Coke Zero) and sandwiches for dinner rather than a big meal.
