    Hi, Ive just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and so am now on a low carb diet. The weight is coming off nicely however im getting stuck on low carb snacks for my peckish moments. Any suggestions please?

    30g peanuts read the packet, around 2 carbs.

    Cheese, pork scratchings, olives, walnuts.

    Berries and cream!

    Sugar free jelly (Hartleys make 10 cal pre made pots which are virtually zero carb),
    Nuts:

    Some makes of high protein bars are also sugar free, but test to see if the polyols they use as sweeteners spike you or not, I’m lucky that they don’t, some people they do. Examples are Adonis bars:

    Phd bars:

    There’s also a make called Grenade carb killers, I haven’t tried them yet.
    With all these bars you need to look for the ‘impact carbs’ not total carbs as polyols are carbs but in most people they aren’t absorbed.

    I bought a couple of Atkins chocolate bars. One was 30g and was ok. The other was 60g coconut bar and spiked me something rotten. Very expensive for what they are.
