    And I thought I was the only one! I thought diabetes in itself was a minefield as we're all individual and what affects some may not affect others [eg I can eat rice, no problem] but LCHF itself has become a minefield within a minefield. I remember looking at the Diet Doctor website but lost interest when I saw one of their breakfast suggestions was cheese with butter spread on top....I mean, how could you..??? :confused:

    How could you not!! On the other hand, that's a lot less ridiculous than being advised by a HCP to eat porridge for breakfast.

    Well, I could. But I wouldn't choose to.
    But there are always diet recipe suggestions that don't appeal.
    I just keep looking til I find one that does appeal.

    Please let's not turn this thread into 'why I dislike the idea of HF'.

    I think decades of being indoctrinated with the bizarre idea that fat is unhealthy has turned a lot of people off things like butter and cheese. However, I love both!

    So do I! But unfortunately I only like them between a couple of slices of bread which is a no-no for me ;)

    I an addict when it comes to eating cheese, but I personally wouldn't want to spread butter on it :( If it works for you ard others, then thumbs up. We all have different tastes.

  11. Diet Doctor also suggests a can of mackerel as a breakfast idea. To my mind, that is stinking cat food that has no place at the human table, but I wouldn't anyone who chose to eat it to stay healthy. Just saying :rolleyes:

    Saying something sounds horrible isn't the same as slagging off people who eat it!

    I've never tried straight butter by itself. Sounds ok. Add a little cheese and you might have something!
     
  15. That's true. I wasn't having a go at you :)

    I think this thread has gone a bit off topic. Hopefully some people who have not lost weight following lchf will be along soon.

    Never tried butter, but I do cover my hard cheese with mayonnaise. Delicious.
