    Last night I did a low carb stir fry. Chicken, mushrooms, red onion, peppers and bean sprouts. Stir fry sauces send me sky high so I just use passata instead, need plenty of vitamin C cos I've got a streaming cold lol

    Hi, do you mean each otem of food has no more than five carbs in it? Well done in your weight loss! Very impressive.
    I need to lose about three stone, so a long way to go, but I have only been on carb free for a week and have lost at least six pounds so I'm very hopeful I can do it, but must admit trying to replace bread, potatoes, rice is difficult.

    8 chicken nuggets, 5 fish fingers, 3 vegetable fingers, 2 breakfast Muffin things that my gf makes (basically a small chopped up cooked breakfast muffin trays bite sized and good for when feeling hungry) and a pack of crisps.

    not really an ideal day for eating but its been a lousy week and I needed cheering up :)

    I went off the Lidl rolls for a while after singing their praises. I just found that even half made me feel bloated but I read on here that someone manages to slice them into 3 and that works for me. Might sound a bit extreme but even less carbs and no bloated feeling after so thank you whoever it was. x I've still not managed to make a palatable substitute and it is nice to have something to dip in egg yolk or spread something on.

    By the way, @Magsx1 took me ages to find them originally until I found out they are in the fresh bakery baskets and triangular shape so easy to spot x
