    I was thinking along similar lines just recently, surmising that a significant number do not self select in the way you describe.

    I agree. I'm a natural problem solver and love researching things. In any area of our lives where we encounter problems, I've always searched for answers or possible solutions. My husband often says that my tenacity and fierce loyalty to my loved ones are my strongest attributes! I'm not naive and realise we don't have a magic wand, but it certainly doesn't hurt to be well informed and try out different approaches.

    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries and cream washed down with a black coffee.
    Packed lunch on the road to my son’s house: gouda and chorizo rollitos with cauliflower and broccoli salad followed by Greek yoghurt and raspberries.
    Mid afternoon: banana Carb Killa bar and sugar free apple squash (no coffee at my son’s house! :wideyed:)
    Dinner: mature cheddar and mushroom omelette with a leafy salad followed by SF jelly, cream and LC chocolate granola.

    Lunch yesterday: Liquid lunch of four pots of low carb XXXX Gold at the bowls club, some dubious cheese nibbley bits that would go nicely on a mouse trap as bait.
    Dinner: Pork chops and veggies.
    Breakfast: Usual omelette, bacon, tomato, reheated cooked spudlite.

    Drinks: Black coffee no sugar / sweeteners, beer, water.

    It does not bother me, I have seen plenty of pig nipples in my thirty years in the retail / wholesale meat industry.

    By the looks of that nipple it was from a male pig... :D

    Wow! That’s impressive knowledge. Presume female’s would be larger then?
    It didn’t put me off the meal, but gave me a bit of a jolt when I first saw it.

    It’s pork belly - fabulous (unless of course you are the donor).

    An interesting day here in Texas looking for LC yet delicious food.
    Breakfast; Texas sausage, eggs and avocado. Tea (my wonderful sister has Yorkshire tea) and koffy of course.
    Lunch out: an interesting Ratatouille smothered in melted cheese (hold the bread bun), a side of very good home made coleslaw and some really good pickled gherkins - a big bottle of Pelagrino.
    Dinner; spaghetti squash with meatballs in a mushroom and tomato sauce. Just had a local beer called Devil’s Backbone - hardly a murmur on the wheel of mystery and bewilderment.

    @ianpspurs 60 is too high?
    @DJC3..... yes. But as I’m more used to seeing pigs/hogs alive than as cuts of meat, it’s probably just me, bc they are clearly fine on a mammal! I saw pork belly for the first time ever a couple of weeks ago in Costco.
    Hurrrray @BibaBee ! Very glad for the both of you. And “natural problem solver” sounds SO much nicer than “compulsive fixer”, which is my phrase for myself lol.
    Bfast usual 1/2 avocado, egg, DWC, and a chunk of cheddar. BG stayed 30+ points (1.3+) higher for over 4 hours, and dropped 20 by 5.5 hrs, and a further 14 by 9 hrs. Sigh....
    Lunch seltzer, DWEVOO&S
    First supper skyr, piece of the almond butter mug bread with butter
    Ballet class
    Second supper chunk of cheddar, more mug bread with EVOO
    So very imaginative but in truth I enjoyed every bite!
    Good night all, good morning all the rest!

    My biggest memory of Houston was the sheer number and range of places to eat out.

    Yes, and it was! Once the crackling had crackled the nipple wasn’t obvious - even so I gave that bit to Mr C!

    Odd how diabetes changes tastes and ideas. For most of the first 60 years of my life I could not abide anything almond but now I even make my own almond milk and can eat a handful of the nuts raw. My personal food failure alarm goes off if a recipe says keto or DD.

    Good morning everyone.

    Woo hoo - the Stella cherry tree I planted last year in a huge tub and trained espalier style along the garage wall finally got leaf buds on it last weekend and today it's got blossom buds. Up until last weekend I was convinced I'd managed to kill it.

    Today....

    Breakfast: 100g Brie
    Lunch: 30g mixed nuts - (mix is walnuts, pecans, brazils, almonds)
    Dinner: Iceland frozen mackerel fillets fried in butter with a squeeze of lime juice and scattering of chopped coriander (might have a side salad with this)
    Drinks: black decaff coffee and still spring water
