    Low carb - 2 boiled eggs, 2 coffees with cream and some blanched broccoli and peppers = 10 g carbs (includes
    50% of the protein in the eggs)

    Confessions of a low carber in a hurry as my gym shift started at 7.30am... hot cross bun. My blood sugar curved as peaked at 15.9 in spite of starting at 7 and taking 3 units of insulin simultaneous to the bun. This is what happens to a type 1 when you don't your own insulin prior to the food (normals get a surge of insulin just by looking at the hot cross bun then more as it hits their mouth and more again once in the small intestine):sour:
    Next time I will go for bulletproof coffee.

    Something carby - a big bowl of cereal (with the relevant amount of insulin about 20 mins before)

    Usually coffee and double cream. Had some Creme Fraiche (SP?) and pumpkin and sesame seeds this AM as I have not been too well this past week.

    Coffee with semi skimmed milk and a cigarette. And a very small bite of the pear I cut for the guinea pigs.

    My standard breakfast.... 4 egg cheese omelette with some sliced red bell pepper in it. 300g plain Greek yoghurt and black coffee. Sometimes I'll add a chocolate flavoured non sweetened almond milk drink with perhaps 5gs of whey protein, but not always.

    2 egg cheese omelette, black tea, black coffee. I find that if if I have virtually no carbohydrate at breakfast then my eating stays under control all day.
    Carb at breakfast = insulin response = carb craving sometime during the day.

    I usually have scrambled egg with cheese melted through it plus avocado, tomato and sometimes mushrooms.
    But last night I made the keto bread rolls on the diet doctor website for the first time (almond, psyllium husks, egg white) and they were so good that I had one too many with my last meal of mince, raw garlic and yoghurt, so I slept in (thanks hubby for watching the kids) and didn't eat till almost 11am (I am 34 weeks pregnant too). I needed something "clean" to eat after feeling so bloated all night :p so my first meal of the day was a salad plate of raw cauliflower, tomato, red capsicum, cucumber, avocado, radish, bocconcini cheese and a bit of presswurst.

    I saved the eggs I normally have for breakfast to put into a low carb hazelnut cake to have a bit later in the day with a cuppa.

    Does having a cup of coffee or a cigarette count as breaking your fast? I have a slice of Burgen toast, an egg cooked different ways, with bacon, sausage or another egg. (plus a mug of coffee).
