    Major trauma this morning.

    Had to swipe some of Mr B's lactofree for my coffee (due to cream shortage). Yuck. So watery. And then i got hungry at 11am. Which is ridiculous.

    S: jerky
    L: mozzarella green salad, beef tomato and olives
    D: chicken breast baked with mushroom, bacon and some replacement cream, cauli and greenery. Toying with the thought of a coyo...

    I am doing the fasting as well as the low carb. I eat at 7pm last night and it is 0800am here in Australia. I will wait until I am hungry and then your poached egg on spinach sounds delicious. I have been doing this for 6 days and the fasting time so far has been 16 hours.

    I'm not sure, yesterday seemed like an upset tummy, but I have been having problems there anyway. I saw doctor on Monday he said it's probably IBS, to have blood test in couple of weeks if it don't settle. But today I'm aching all over and feel bit fluey, I'm just going to look up low carb flu.
