    Throwing myself straight into it isn't a good idea is it?? In regards to reducing my carbs... How much should I aim for per day? Meal planning is a good idea too isn't it? X

    @ohitsnicola - I thought the meal by meal idea could be really useful.

    I started today.....well sort of! Didn't have breakfast as had a hectic morning, (swollen face and took my brother to the station so he could go home)
    Lunch: some ham, cheese, cucumber and 2slices of ryvitas with butter and marmite

    Dinner: steak and mushrooms

    I'm still hungry but don't know what else to have.

    More cheese maybe, or if you have any some berries with cream?

    Double or Extra Thick Double is my choice.

    If I have this, I pour the cream over rthe frozen berries. The cream freezes on contact, so forms a coating. Then eat.

    Deeeelish.

    It is good. I don't have a sweet tooth, and only have a dessert every several months, but this works for me, to the extent I prefer berries frozen to fresh these days.

    Large strawberries are a bit of a mouthful, but smaller strawberries, yummy raspberries and blueberries are fab. Raspberries are my faves
