    You both have to tell me how you do that !!! I love(d) shredded wheat. Send me the tolerance tablet if you could. :) One breakfast I would love to have again.

    I am so envious of you both.

    Breakfast - bacon with 2 fried eggs and 1tsp brown sauce
    Snack - cathedral city cheese mini and a ham rollup with cheese spread
    Lunch - Tuna with full fat mayonnaise, more cheese lol and a few slices of beetroot
    Snack - cathedral citycheese mini and a ham rollup with cheese spread
    Dinner - Liver with onions, cauliflower and green beans

    I know there looks a lot of cheese but am within my limits, the minis are individually wrapped 20g portions and I weighed the cheese for lunch which was 35g and then two cheese triangles for the ham rollups. I love cheese

    Oh yes and half a bottle of red wine (my friend drinks the other half), lol

    Breakfast - Bran flakes with hazelnuts and almonds with ff milk
    Snack - chocolate covered rice cake
    Lunch - had a works conference so food was limited so had 1 beef sandwich, sausage roll, piece of quiche but left the base and most of the garnish which was lettuce and tomato oh and some fruit salad and a teeny bit of rocky road! Surprisingly enough my BS was 5.3 when I got home at 16.30 so hopefully not too much damage!
    Dinner - out tonight so haven't a clue but will try to be good!!

    It just works Mike ( for me ) not saying it will forever don't know the answer to that . I don't know the science ... Another member used to be good with science and food .. It was really interesting ..
    For me low sugar was my main goal ... I do eat low carb meals as well ... But I tweak and change with portion control ... All diets really are interesting
    And yes of course i have to exercise with my diet ... I need both ...

    By the way I never ever ate shredded wheat ... Lol
    Sorry you loved it so much .. Perhaps on day ... Or now and again .... Kat

    I don't think Shredded wheat would be my carb of choice either. Lol. But no accounting for taste.
    Now if you were talking about a nice about a nice dark ale, that would be my dream carb.
    However, today a mundane mix of :
    Grilled mushroom with a thin shaving of parmesan; lots of water and lemon ginger tea; baked cauliflower green salad, boiled egg. As a special treat I am going to have sparkling mineral water and 2 walnuts.

    Just regular green beans, blanch the beans in water for a few mins, drain, smash a couple of cloves of garlic and toss them in a little oil and gently fry until they wilt a little.

    ;)

    Thanks for that :) I always get over things pretty quickly but we do remember and life goes on. As for sausages, buns and lager?

    Sounds like the days when I was NOT diabetic
