    Well I'm only into this whole deal since January (diagnosis) and I've had burnout a couple of times. I will gladly look at your link and thanks so much!

    I get frustrated as I cannot seem to eat anything except greens things and meat in small doses. Sometimes I feel like giving up - but I have come so far in such a short time :bigtears:

    I think the baking will be a lot of help for me because I can't afford the ready-made, plus I don't trust it either. There's recipes galore, but baking takes time and willingness. When I want something to eat I can't just grab something safe unless it's ready to eat. I don't get really bad hunger pains, but I get them. Yesterday I didn't want to eat so much dairy (to go more Keto) but I had to grab some to make a full meal. I only ate 694 calories total and 14g of carbs. Today has to be different as I know that's not enough for me.

    Hang in their Lainie, I think if we are eating balanced meals, minus things that we know aren't healthy like sugar, we'll do fine.

    Did you do some experimenting then testing sweetie?? If I have a good, or better count, I look at my food diary to make sure what and how many carbs I ate. Oh, the other thing I know for you was you thought the Almond flour didn't set right with you. So I also should have asked if you ate some of the other things, while eliminating the Almond Flour. Then if you get a reaction, you might have got the other from something else, not the almond flour. There is also coconut flour. I know these different flours are, well, different, but I just love the new foods, it takes some time to realize they are so yummy and I have no cravings, honest I don't.

    You can still make pancakes, and there is even syrup. I know our food industries focus on "enticing us" with a lot of unhealthy stuff, but they are slowly coming round because so many people are getting sick from non-nutritional food ;)

    Do you need some easy recipes to try, or a Food Diary to help you out? I could give you a link or two on recipes, and there are several here. For Diaries, I bet this forum can recommend some good ones. I won't because I don't want folks to think I'm trying to sell something ;) But tracking my foods, just even 2 weeks, while testing you can get amazing info about your body. I've lost 10 lbs as of this a.m. I couldn't believe it as I've been lazy for a week not exercising, just daily chores etc.

    Here's just one I googled but have not tried @Lainie71 and it might be one to try out. Says it has 1 carb, but someone here might know about the other ingredients to be sure if it's a good recipe. Let me know if you try it ;)
    https://www.diabetesdaily.com/blog/gluten-free-low-carb-coconut-flour-pancakes-592220/

    It also mentions a syrup you can buy that is carb free using Monk Fruit. I know nothing about Monk Fruit as I like my Stevia, but I would try this syrup just to see if I could avoid making my own ;) Well, I do know many say Monk Fruit is top-notch for a sugar-alternative.

    Same, thanks to this culture where they do absolutely nothing until things effect their lives
