    So far today it's been salami and pastrami, with fresh coffee and cream. Couldn't be bothered doing my usual egg and bacon today!

    B: 3 good sausages and coffeencream
    L: tinned salmon, mayo and a 9 bar. BG 6.1 at 2 hrs. Awesome!!!
    D: huge salad with greenery, peppers, cherry toms, coleslaw, cucumber, cress, 3 bean salad in tomato sauce, hard boiled egg, 2 small felafel and a tiny onion bhaji. Delish, but a bit too high carb for me. Finished off with whipped cream and grated 70% choc. In a separate bowl, not on top of the salad. :)

    Ah but you have come to right place then! This is the section for low carbers you see and for many, not all but many, low carbing helps immensly with normalising blood sugar.

    Have a look at LCHF for example www.dietdoctor.com/lchf
