    Today
    Breakfast one boiled cold and one slice of thin beef
    Coffee with no sugar now all drinks very pleased with myself for battling it.

    Lunch. Nothing just coffee no sugar


    Evening meal roasted broccoli,cauliflower, beans ,carrot and peas with natural butter and one small drum stick with home made curry sauce


    My weight now is 95.3 kilos a real brilliant result for me.

    Had brunch today 2 open DD breakfast sandwiches ( 1.5 Emmental slices base. ham and egg X 2) - without the 5 pints of tea that would be like eating air but worth a try. Skipped lunch - was hungry but if I can't control bg I can "put my foot on the ball" so to speak . Evening meal was Milky's halum fries, mushrooms, streaky bacon and 3 Cumberland sausages ( I don't like them but Julie does. No idea what the unpleasant/overdone spice in them is). Cronometer made today around 15 gms carbs. 4 days in a row VLC as per Cronometer - astonished by how awful the bg has been. Utterly confused.
    Edit: Is protein the problem? Today was 147 gms for body weigh of 74.4 kgs i.e. nearly 2 gms per kg (195 gms fat)

    Explainer: it’s only my second day since being diagnosed type 2 and I won’t be having a proper sit down with my GP til after the Easter long weekend. She said in the meantime to cut all sugar and salt, and reduce carbs as much as I could. I made an executive decision not to totally cut salt as that would be setting myself up for failure. After reading a LOT on this forum I decided just this two weeks to go low carb but also very low calorie, both to lose as much weight as possible before my appointment and to see how I feel at different glucose levels now I’m aware of my disease.

    Yesterday: fasted all day and then ate a piece of sharp cheddar cheese about half an hour before going to bed. Felt fine.

    Today: nothing for breakfast, a 375ml can of Coke Zero Sugar at lunch. Did my first ever finger prick test after work, was 6.8 mmol/L after all that fasting, no hypo. Dinner: a 220g bunch of steamed broccolini with some toasted sesame oil and soy sauce drizzled over and lots of black pepper, and a tin of John West sardines. After an hour of exercise and pottering about for a while, I did another finger prick and am at 6.5. Pleasantly surprised it wasn’t super high given it’s only day two. :)

    Like I say I don’t plan to keep eating this little, it’s just for the next two weeks.

    Porridge with fresh raspberries, small glass orange juice, cup of tea with milk

    Tomato soup with small chunk of whole meal bread

    Small scone with jam/cream

    Home made fish and chips (6 chips) and frozen peas

    2 pieces dark chocolate

    Drank water all day and had one can Diet Coke

    Reading just before bed = 8.5 ( and it’s been 12 at this time on previous nights).

    Conclusion : Beats me. Readings higher when I’ve eaten more healthily

    Hi Guys

    This looks like a good place to post and read what others are eating.
    I will add to another thread what I have made and amounts of carbs etc. I guess we have a receipt thread somewhere... Not had time yet to read all the different forums and see where the bast place to post stuff is yet.

    So Good Friday
    I had 1 toasted hot cross bun of breakfast and a cup of coffee with double cream.

    Quick question: Do we add to this what we have eaten as the day goes on?

    Po
