    @Tamanna I have two meals a day usually and would have a mix of the following for meal one

    - kefir, ground flaxseeds, inulin for a bit more fibre, full fat Greek yoghurt, a minute amount of berries, and flaked almonds plus some cheese and avocado or scrambled egg or omelette with cheese or bacon and eggs with mushrooms and two tiny tomatoes or smoked mackerel and avocado or fried eggs and loads of mushrooms cooked in loads of organic salted butter. I love halumi cheese or stilton or cheddar or St Agur with avocado. I eat to appetite so it does vary.

    Meal two is either
    chicken (my favourite with skin on) or beef, pork, lamb, tuna, salmon, or white fish or omelette with cheese. I have these with either a salad or veggies. I usually stir fry my veggies in butter or coconut oil. Veggies are - courgettes, cauliflower rice, broccoli, sweetheart cabbage, kale, kalettes, asparagus, sugar snap peas, celery, spinach, mushrooms, or aubergines (not all at once of course). With my second meal l have some more kefir.

    I also have 10g of 85% chocolate a day plus a few cocoa nibs and coffee with cream.

    If I have 3 meals instead of two I just have something light like cheese and avocado for the third meal.

    Husband makes chicken curry using a jar of curry sauce. This spikes my blood sugars really high so he puts my serving in a bowl so that I can wash off the sauce - drain the chicken in a sieve and add it to the spiralised courgette stir fried in butter.

    If I am hungry and need a snack I find cheese does not spike my blood sugars.

    By eating this way I have now been off the insulin for just over 8 months.

    You may be able to eat more carbs than the 20g of carbs that is my maximum. Your meter will tell you which foods spike your bs.

    Yes I’m very much the same I’m trying to wean myself off testing as much as most days I don’t eat anything that would cause even a small spike but test and prices to be a waste of time and strips as reading good trying to only test when I do try something different

    I did a quick count of this, and it looks like you are eating 400 calories per day, at max 500.

    Of course you'll lose weight quickly, but you will also destroy your body. This is completely insane.

    Edit: Calories:
    egg: 70 cals
    apple: 80-90 cals
    chapati: 80cals
    2 cups veg: 50 cals
    1 guava: 40 cals
    2 large cucumbers: 90 cals
