    https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/blog/jokalsbeek.401801/ for info including low carb made simple

    And https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/category/success-stories-and-testimonials.43/ to show it really works and for motivation

    and https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/what-have-you-eaten-today.75781/ for food ideas

    also https://www.dietdoctor.com/ for more food ideas and general info of carb content of foods. Lots of other websites for recipes out there too. Just use the term low carb or keto with whatever you fancy.

    Remember though just because you once disliked a food it may not be true anymore. Age changes perceptions and also once free of carbs for a while tastebuds change and recognise different flavours masked by all the sugar before.

    Also it may not be the food but perhaps the way it was cooked before. I didn’t much like steak etc when young. Turns out it was the way my mum incinerated all meats;)
