    I hadn't thought about it really!! I guess it would not work on the heavy nut flours though ... they aren't really flour, per se.... I have some very fine coconut flour and almond flour, very expensive, but much more like wheat flour... you've given me food for thought Brettsza... :)

    Ahhhh, of course... you need sugar to make the yeast work... I've only been making bread for about 45 years... :facepalm: I never gave the sugar a thought... and I always am in a hurry for it - you're right... :)

    Today will be mainly making up the veg deficit, and eating fat. I got on the scales a few days ago, and discovered a 1.5 pound gain! this is the first upward motion in over a year, and I know that box of Thorntons was to blame (2 a day, spread over 2 weeks), because they were the kind of carb that historically put on weight for me.

    1.5 lbs is ridiculously small and insignificant - I fully recognise this - but as the hint of a start of a trend... deeply suspicious. add in the fact that my weight loss has been stalled for a while, then the obvious conclusion is that I have been eating too many carbs. and since I HAVEN'T really been eating many carbs, I think that I have been protein creeping, instead of carb creeping.

    So less prot yesterday. And today. replaced by humungous amounts of veg/fibre, with enough fat to not be hungry.

    B: Cinnamon flax seed bun served with double cream
    assorted drinks with cream (hot choc, broth, coffee)
    L: huge salad with mayo
    D: roast chicken leg, all the skin, veg and cheese, with some berries and cream.

    Will let you know if The Plan works. Clearly, the way for me to guage that it worked is when I wake up tomorrow looking like Twiggy. Am looking forward to it. ;) though Mr B might get a shock :)

    Breakfast this morning Kippers with butter and 1 slice of Oopsie bread total 3 carbs, with my other meals I forecast a total of 45 carbs today! Since I started this LCHF style of eating 25 days ago although I haven't weighed I am waiting for the nurse to do that on my next appointment in a few weeks I have definitely lost weight though, because my waste is now 44 compered to 46 at the start so very encouraging I am delighted, and looking forward to my next weigh in.

    :D Good morning... you always make me smile... I hope Mr B's shock is not too severe - I fear for his heart... :)
    I feel exactly the same way... I've put a kilo on... 2.2 pounds... I'm not overweight really, but I don't like the 'upward trend' either... it will just pile on and on, I'm sure... I've had too little fat and too much protein, I'm sure also....
    So today, loads of espresso with cream, 2 x bacon, mushrooms fried in butter and an egg... more espresso with cream... :) Lunch will be 180gm tuna marinated in soy, mirin, wok oil, garlic and spring onion, seared quickly and served with baby asparagus cooked in butter and buttered noodles made from yellow courgettes....followed by lemon almond cake and cream... Dinner will be roast chicken, roast cauliflower, green beans and buttered brussels sprouts.... followed by blueberries and cream... :)
    How I slipped into the low-fat thing I have no idea... probably worried about the dairy effect on my infected sinuses - which are now happily fixed.. :happy: I will be doing 5 k's on the treadmill too - with weights.... :)
