    I've just made myself cauliflower cheese- cooked cauliflower in microwave for 5 mins with a couple of bay leaves and then poured away the water. I put grated cheese all over and some yoghurt and dried onions and back in the microware for the cheese to melt.After I had a small peach.

    I don't eat any bread or pasta, rice or potatoes. These used to be my staple foods but now on HFLC regime so I find it easier just to eliminate them completely.

    Morning. You're doing really well on cutting out dairy. Any positive results? I'm struggling a bit to cut out cheese...love a bit of cheese, I do.

    Yesterday:

    B: Water
    L: Water
    D: Chicken & Chorizo Stew, Frozen Berries with Cream.

    N.B. To avoid a red card from the fasting police I must admit I got home from work an hour earlier than usual, so my evening meal was only 23 hours after the previous day's

    Nothing yet. I don't really expect to see or feel anything much different until I retest the LDLs in a few months.

    And anyway, it's as much coincidence as planning that there's been no dairy so far this week! I've got a pot of cream waiting for when I get home tonight! Mug cake!!!!!

    Update: The weird carb free rice stuff was actually okay. It didn't have any taste so went okay with the curry and gave a bit of rice like texture and bulked out the meal. It had a bit of a funny smell on opening but that completely disappeared on rinsing, draining and heating.

    Did it effect your digestion? I was just looking at that at the store the other day and thought about it.
    How do you make your curry?

    No, it didn't affect my digestion although I got hungrier a lot quicker than I normally do with the same curry which I'd usually have with cauliflower rice.

    The curry sauce was a Holy Cow one.
