    It’s one of those weird ones, it’s listed as 9g but 1.3 is polyols so net carbs 7.7g. There are a few other flavours, this was the lowest but there’s not much in it.

    A bit of a warning of what not to do what I did the other day.. When we were using the slow cooker on Monday cooking the corned beef the oven got turned on one element.

    The cooker was sitting on this board, when it started burning, smoke everywhere in the kitchen which we caught in time not to have caused any worse damage. It turned out the smoke alarm was stuffed in the kitchen.

    So had the electrician in yesterday,and have replaced all three alarms that we have in the unit, all nice shiny photoelectric ones have been wired into the power like the old ones.

    Breakfast was scrambled eggs and blackpudding, coffee and double cream. Had some gouda as a snack. Dinner: OMG roasted herdwick lamb leg and sliced green beans with lots of butter. It was absolutely delicious. Having it again tomorrow. Bad start to the day, felt really weak and wishy washy, jaw wasn't to good. It had recovered by dinner time so I am going to bed a very happy bunny.

    Fantastic!
    Don’t think I dare try it though - I usually get a spike after a PhD bar or Carb Killer. Maybe I just react to the sweet taste - very annoying.

    That’s a shame, I am lucky that I don’t seem to react to polyols.

    I didn't, forget the chips and the white bread and I think it should class as low carb! :D Opps.

    The lamb sounds delicious. So glad your jaw had recovered in time for dinner.

    @Tipetoo oh my gosh how scary...was the cooker a write off? I had a kitchen fire last summer and it took me weeks to get over it...mine was leaking gas from a camping gas during a power cut. Had to have the fire service out though me and friend smothered it with several wet bath towels. Kitchen saved because it was on a stone worktop island.
    Hugs.

    @Tipetoo OMG - thank goodness you got to it in time. Scary!! We changed to cooking with gas because we had something similar happen with a teatowel on an electric hob a few years back. Turned out there was a fault on that ring and it wasn't turning completely off when the control knob looked like it was turned off.

    Today....

    Breakfast: Two boiled eggs and buttered Livlife bread soldiers for dipping
    Lunch: Chunk of cheese - probably Wensleydale with cranberries as that is what is already open
    Dinner: Place fillet fried in butter and garlic with broccoli
    Drinks: BDC, SSW

    After a 22 hour fast, and 3 miles of walking before my meal today. I had:

    A half of whole chicken
    Spinach (paneer) without cheese - cooked again
    Feta cheese on the side
    Lemon squeezed fresh + black pepper
    Mayo, Tabasco and some Lurpak salted butter
    Half of Greggs Lemon shortbread biscuit (about 7.5g carb in the half, 15g whole biscuit)
    1 Diet Coke

    Relaxing with a cup of tea now

    BG was 4.2 in the morning

    There's no recipe. Just your stats. I make lots of veg stir fries but was hoping for the extra ingredients to make the veg taste Malaysian.

    I brought 30 cans, my local Asda had them on offer. I couldn't resist, especially after a fast, I just feel good I don't know what it is maybe the tingle in the throat...

    The insurrection my body started on Easter Saturday isn't quite over. It seems to mutate slightly each day so the menu today is very truncated. Tea until about 12,45 then cocoa and an 80 gms tub of Morrinsons rollitos. That prompted my body to make me feel sick for about 5 hrs - new one that. Evening meal was zero carb and cal electrolyte drink, schneiderbrot protein bread chicken and h/m (1 tsp) mayo and tea. Doing amazing things for body fat % but bg unimpressed.
    Edited to add: Today at least joints worked so end on a positive.
