    I find lashings of Hellman's Real mayonnaise and / or grated cheese, added while the vegetable is as hot as possible so it melts, can make almost any vegetable taste acceptable. Maille Dijon mustard is good too.

    Hi. Before I settle on adding something to my diet I generally test every hour to see how the land lies. The meal in question never goes above 2 mmol. However, you’re definitely right because I have experienced what you describe, I just never knew the cause. Thanks.

    After a hard week at work drank a bottle of red wine last night.
    This morning I went to the Eastville park run and jogged 5k, fastest time this year ( having lost a little weight helped) hovering around 15 stone but I am 6 foot 5.

    I presume this was a parkrun? (I think parkruns are the best thing since sliced bread - or maybe I should say, creamed avocado?) You must have cut a fine figure, head and shoulders above most of the other runners. Would you care to divulge your time?

    When I fancy chips I make halloumi ones, they look like the tastiest chips when they are on your plate and are really tasty and very fashionable at the moment

    @nomorechoccy have you tested for chips? I can manage 6-7 without causing too much damage to my BS.

    I've only recently discovered halloumi, where has it been all my life? One thing for sure about LCHF it does not restrict the diet it widens the choices.
    P.S. I love celeriac chips, too.

    I would love to fall off the wagon just once.:(. Just one normal day. Oh i agree with the Lindt 90% chocolate that bigsi1984 was talking about. I hated the taste when first i tried. Now i have about 2 squares, actually i'm back to 1 as that seems to satisfy my chocy craving.

    I know same for me, I wouldn’t have even looked at halloumi 9 months ago, now I love it.
    I think as your food options change you need to be a bit more willing and open to trying new things, I’ve discovered things that I didn’t like before are now favourites,. I like to think that it’s because things taste as they should and I’m not fooled by everything that’s been processed and preserved with ingredients I don’t need.

    I "discovered" halloumi only 2 months ago and I absolutely love it now. I could never go back to the bland high carb diet I used to eat. My diet now is so tasty and delicious.

    That's why runners have age categories. Anyway, I'm impressed! I am just trying to work my way up to doing another parkrun, after health problems and heatwave interrupted my training.
