    @NewTD2

    All nutritious foods give you energy. I would suggest that you eat the usual food that you like. Two hours after eating take a meter reading to see how your blood sugar was affected. Keep a log of all food consumed and all meter readings. A pattern will emerge to reveal which foods raise your blood sugar and which foods do not.

    Thanks Andrew! Those recipes look so good. I'll have to try them. I think there's a DCUK recipe forum on this site you also might want to post these to. I'm sure everyone would love to see these!

    A really ugly looking thing, looks like a Turnip with tentacles. Lidl often sells it. Makes great mash!

    Celeriac is so delicious if peeling the outside off.. and then cutting up in to thick chips and roasting.. dont put in as much oil / lard as you would with roast potatoes. Par boil first .

    Absolutely the best. We have every Saturday with fish and veg.. absolutely delicious!!

    Last night was my last Insulin (Glargine) therapy from 14 units down to 6 units in just 13 days.

    This morning after breakfast was my very first pill for Metformin 500 mg.

    Low-carbing really works for me.

    There are loads of recipes on YouTube if you search for "Keto Recipes" i.e. bread, cakes, fat bombs etc.

    Do you make your own fat / energy bombs?

    The Keto bread is amazing. Just add plenty of walnuts, pecan, almonds etc. to boost the energy levels.

    Sometimes I also add one avocado and one banana. It's about 20-35g of carbs for the whole bread (depends on how much nuts/avocado you add) and you can make about 14 slices.

    Hi Leah,

    The second video.

    I also add 1 avocado and 1 banana with lots of nuts.

    Delicious!

    Glargine 14 units for 10 days and went down to 6 units for 3 days.

    I’m now on Metformin 500 mg started today.

    Low - carbing really works!

    This is fantastic news! Well done Leah!

    Today my BG before breakfast was 5 and after dinner was 6.1

    Are those numbers ok?

    I’m now on Metformin 500m started today.
