      Hi today I've eaten one brioche bun as I have to take other medication but I'm hungry now and am already tired of wondering what to eat that's low in sugar. I've tried to keep things low in sugar and have just had a second lot of fasting bloods to see how I'm doing. Need to lose weight but the meds I'm on for anxiety pile on the pounds so life is pretty difficult right now.

        If you like eggs, something made with them is always filling. I understand your problem as I too am on anti anxiety meds, but we can get there x
