    I bet she got away with it, cos she's defatted her liver, and skinnified, and reversed, and everything.
    (this is me green with envy, in case you didn't realise ;))

    I definitely savour the deliciousness of it when I do have something like that. Had forgotten how fab a sausage sandwich tasted ;) not to be repeated too often though! x

    Yesterday ate pretty much same as day before BG 6.3 all day

    Today the same bar dinner, mushroom omelette, piece of cheese and jelly for pud.

    I have not had hardly any carbs last 3 days and my BG and FBG have been amazing, but I've had heart palpitations ongoing throughout the last two days, does anyone else have ?
    I do have Wolf Parkinson White syndrome (irregular beat) but not had for a while, could serious low carbing be doing this ? or maybe it is stress related also as wife is quite ill :(

    B: yoghurt with raspberries. I'm feeling a bit of fat overload today, 2 coffees with cream
    L: nothing
    D: out for tea with mother. Started off well, with salt beef hash with two fried eggs on top, baby boiled pots underneath - only had four halves of these teeny weeny pots. 6 months ago I would have devoured the lot and probably finished off my mother's chips too! Went a bit wrong after that as I succumbed to a rhubarb, plum and cherry crumble with ice cream and custard :blush: naughty, naughty, naughty, and a coffee with cream
    Still stuffed now! Might have a snack later tho

    I think you can get palpitations with low carbing. It is mentioned on diet doctor I'm sure. Perhaps mention it to your health care provider. I get them but mine are either from ongoing anxiety disorder or the change, as they did get worse when that kicked in. I also notice them when my Bs goes below 4.7- not a genuine hypo but obviously low for me.

    Try upping your salt. Drink bovril or broth made from a stock cube and water.
    When we start low carbing, our body dumps water retention quite fast, and as it does, it flushes some useful minerals out at the same time (potassium and magnesium, I think)

    I really don't want to imply I can advise you on heart palpitations (You need to consult a HCP!),
    but -for information only - have a read of this
    http://www.webmd.boots.com/a-to-z-guides/low-potassium-hypokalaemia
    You can get potassium supplements from boots or holland and barratt.
    I get cramps in hot weather, and always have a bottle of potassium tablets on hand.

    Thank you Cold Ethyl & Brunneria for advice, I was getting cramp yesterday more so than normal, even when I yawned my underneath of my mouth seized up (was freaky) and I never gave it a thought of losing minerals / salts, I've had headaches also, so will try some bovril or supplements, won't be down to the change :)

    B: 9bar and, um... something to drink
    L: (inspired by @turvell ;)) scram egg with chorizo and MUSHROOMS
    D: Goan curry with carrots, peppers, baby corn, broccoli and green beans, followed by a vanilla coyo (Yum! New flavour, with itty bitty posh real vanilla seeds and no sugar! Yum!)

    But not enough to drink today. But if I guzzle water now, I will be widdling all night.
    Decisions, decisions...

    breakfast.: butter loaded toast
    Lunch: 4 chicken style crumbed burgers with green beans (no buns of course)
    Tea: 2 1/2 large hotdogs, slice of well buttered white toast, bit of ravioli
    Snacks: half mini pkt hula hoops, half bar sugar free chocolate, bit of coconut,
    Not the best set of meals ever...... But tomorrow is a better day

    No rolls to put the hotdogs in, just the sausages so not so bad as it sounds ;)......and the ravioli was only about 4 of the pieces. The half mini bag of hula hoops would've been around 8g of carbs if I remember rightly - dogs got the other half between them
