    I recently cut out carbs e.g, bread, potato, cereals and adopted LCHF and have already started dropping some weight and seeing better results with my BG tests

    Breakfast - bacon, mushrooms (fried in coconut oil), 2x small egg muffin

    Lunch - mixed salad leaves, grated cheddar, omelette, mayonnaise

    Tested my blood sugar before lunch and it was 5.5...happy with that

    Yummy sounds delicious! Unfortunately I couldn't manage that now I am taking my blood sugars, I would be flying, but before I would have enjoyed it all!

    Dinner: 4 veggie fingers, 2 beefburgers and 2 extremely small roasties.

    I was so hungry after cycling 90 minutes today, so I had a large portion of courgette and aubergine fried with fresh marjoram, then I put the veggies on my plate and fried a fresh mackerel in the same pan. After that I stirred a small portion of brown rice through the fishy olive oil to heat it up. I ate it all with some tahini. My two-hours-post-meal reading is showing 6.2. I am so full and am happy with that :happy:!!

    I went to Lidl yesterday and got some of their protein rolls. I had two of them with butter, cheese and cucumber slices this morning. Oh, it felt like sitting in a German bakery :hungry: I had quite a high post-breakfast reading (6.8), probably due to the large portion size, but therefore I am still full to the brink :)

    Today two revita crackers with plain fresh tom on at 9 am and nothing since. My reading is 7.5 and I'm very confused as to why.. Does the menopause effect blood sugars as I'm not cheating at all I've increased my walking and I'm eating less weight not going up or down.. Aghhhhhhh driving me mad.. Was about to eat lunch and then see my readings

    Hi, sometimes my blood sugars are all over the place, too. When they are higher than expected, I tend to cut down on carbs at the next meal.

    Thank you. For lunch I have green salad and ham. My sugars seem to be playing up since menopause was hoping some women type 2 might tell me it's normal :)
