    Progressive diabetes would, but lchf is suppose to stop that. It's not mentioned much other than it's suppose to reverse diabetes. I feel the jury is still out, on that one.

    Oh, dear. Hope you've been able to take a reading since then..... Has something perhaps gotten into your meter slot where you put the strip in?

    Outside again now giving dogs their teas and it's gone quite cool. The breeze is nice now instead of feeling like a fan heater..
    Your cool drink sounds lovely.. I'd nothing in the fridge but water and Becks. Well some mini cans of bitter lemon but they'd not been in long enough and soya milk is ok in tea (which I ended up having) but lousy to drink

    I'm teetotal so I like no added sugar Ribena as a treat and I always have ice cubes in the freezer. I made a jug of it and put it in the fridge before I left for mums, it was lovely!

    Can't drink any of the cordials that have sweetener in. I can taste it no matter what flavour unfortunately. Never been much of a cordial drinker anyway really cos by the time it's strong enough to taste it leaves me feeling thirsty. Used to enjoy the odd swig of cold crisp fizzy pop but that's out now cos again the sugar free ones taste . I have been naughty and bought some 150ml cans bitter lemon. 53 cals yet 15g carbs....

    The three Spanish supermarket chains, Alcampo, Mercadona and El Corte Ingles, apparently do a good range of gluten and lacto-free products. There's also a bakers called ProCeli in Barcelona (not sure where you're going, or how widely spread they are).
    Kaiku Sin Lactosa is a lactose-free dairy range.
