    Just remember each slice of different bread all very in weight, therefore the carb content per slice is different. Some may say 4 gram carbs per slice so check the carbs per 100 grams, Lidl sells a protein roll containing 8.5 grams carbs per 100 grams weight.

    Just been to Lidl again, had a thought that Lidl are not industrial bakers so maybe not all baked at same time,seems I might have been right ,got some so now it's time to test and see if they suit me,so 2hrs after breakfast I should have an idea how the suit me.

    I promised an update, so here it is:

    Fasting reading this morning - 6.3
    2 hours later and just before I had breakfast - 7.3
    1 hour after eating 2 boiled eggs and half a Lidl High Protein roll - 6.9
    2 hours -----------------"---------------------------"------------------------ - 7.5
    3 hours -----------------"---------------------------"------------------------ - 6.2

    I think it was a successful test :) but I'll repeat it again just to make sure. I'd also like to try it when I start at a lower reading (I really must try to eat something not long after I get up).

    Hi, Lidl sells now a delicious low carb bread (less than 8g for a huge roll)
