    Don't worry about the scone.
    In the grand scheme of things, I bet you carb total for the day was still MUCH less than it would have been before starting LC.

    :)

    And if there is one dead cert about low carbing, it is that we all fall head first into carbs sooner or later.
    The key thing is whether we get back on the wagon. ;)

    if you start feeling lethargic and cold, add some healthy fats/oils to replace the lost energy from the reduced carbs, drinks lots of water and take more salt

    http://www.dietdoctor.com/lchf it’s a long page and a video

    http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/lowcarbliving/a/Food-Cravings.htm For me, the more carbs we eat the more carbs we want. they don’t give up easy.

    Evidence is inconclusive for an ideal amount of total fat intake for people with diabetes
    therefore, goals should be individualized; fat quality appears to be far more important than quantity.
    In people with type 2 diabetes, a Mediterranean-style, MUFA-rich eating pattern may benefit
    glycemic control and CVD risk factors and can therefore be recommended as an effective alternative to a lower-fat, higher-carbohydrate eating pattern.
