    I do supplement magnesium :)
    Think this one was either visual or sugar related. It was the same day and time as one 2-3 weeks before that was caused by new glasses.

    First meal at 3pm after lunchtime Hiit session in the park - it was cold and very wet and pretty miserable really and I was glad when it was over. Home to 2 airfried chicken thighs a spoonful of kimchi and 1/2 avocado.
    Dinner was LoDough pizza topped with chorizo, artichoke hearts, red pepper and olives. A few raspberries and 100% chocolate drops to follow.
    No yoghurt today, thanks to @Goonergal for pointing out the galactose effect. I’m hoping the horrible post meal spikes might calm down a bit now.

    Could you or @Goonergal please link to that discussion on galactose if you could? For the life of me, I can't find it, and I am finding that I spike on 1/2 or 3/4 cup greek yogurt that only contains 6g carbs. Thanks :)

    Lunch at 13:00 pm, extra sides with this one from the Go-Kit

    For dinner at 15:00 pm, another of the Pico's where my eyes might be out of focus as well.

    [​IMG]

    I can have various liquid drinks such as black coffee, tea, clear soup, cordial and lelly (not green red or blue), upto 06:00 am on Thursday morning. By that time my insides will be sparkly clean ready for me to front up at the base hospital at 07:30 am for the procedure.

    Brunch - 2 eggs mashed up in a cup with butter and a little mayo. Mug of earl grey tea

    Dinner - chicken & large salad. Raspberries on top of extra thick double cream with double cream drizzled over the top and grated 90% Lindtt on top. I got the creams for my DGF order but so far no sign of it being delivered tomorrow - hopefully not as late as Thursday like last week as I thought it was later because of the bank holiday but I don't know what has happened this week as they used to be delivered on a Tuesday which was ideal but I have not heard from them so I don't know what is happening - looks like nothing ...

    On my PC I simply go to the thread I want to link and copy whatever is in the search bar to paste it wherever I want to post.
    If I want to link to a specific post I right click the number below a post to copy the link.

    I have no idea how to do it on the app, but perhaps @searley knows, he uses the app :)

    I'm having an adventurous day today, foodwise :)

    The plan was to have string beans (the flat and long ones, I get confused by google translate on the translations of different kinds of green coloured beans, feel free to enlighten me :)) and halloumi, but then I fried half the halloumi to eat on a slice of LC seed bread. So now there's not enough left for a decent meal.

    I decided to make an experimental and adventurous filling for raw tomatoes to go with the beans and the leftover halloumi. This will involve eggs so I went over to my neighbour to ask for some eggs.
    When I came in he was just cooking some coot eggs he found so he asked if I wanted to try one. Coot eggs taste nice, but different from chicken eggs, very interesting!

    I will update you on the exciting filled tomatoes, provided they turn out to be edible. :D

    People say Metformin is bad, this stuff leaves that in the dust for staying close to the toilet at home.

    I took the three tablets with some low carb jelly, the drinks were pretty sour to the taste but palatable like putting a bit of salt on lemon.
