    I have been eating fruit - an apple a day and blueberries with half a banana and fat free yoghurt for my breakfast. There is my first mistake. I am just feeling rubbish, sweaty, clammy and so tired. All my other bloods came back normal because I thought I may have an under active thyroid. It is obviously something I am doing but thanks to all you lovely people out there giving advice, maybe now, I can look in the right direction. Thank you xx

    Try a few berries and nuts with a plain full fat yogurt for breakfast. I sometimes have this as a dessert later in the day with 3 or 4 strawberries chopped up, or 6 or 8 raspberries. I actually prefer them with double cream. A small apple may well be OK for you.
    Eggs are a better choice for breakfast - cooked any which way, maybe with bacon, mushrooms, a tomato or something. Also cold meats and cheese.

    Thank you, I will give it a go. Always avoided full fat stuff after having gallstones. Probably mistake no 2. I love eggs and bacon but also avoid that because I thought it would make me pile on the pounds. Amazing. Much appreciated. Thank you xxx
