    My last two totals have been +8.... and the breakdowns are not good, though not complete either, one is missing, can't remember which one... and probably why I have not gone completely bonkers on fat - red meat... time might tell.

    the literature is still conflicting & causes stress if looked at in detail..to be honest, i am at the point where i turn a blind eye,hope for the best, start exercising & redo my tests a couple of months after that & see how it goes.

    I bought a kilo of powdered husks. Half a pint of water, 1 teaspoon of the husks stirred into it and then straight down my neck without delay. Then another half pint of water.

    That's how i do it too.

    If you add it to coffee or a lc hot choc, or even a smoothie, you get something the consistency of a macdonalds milkshake.

    I probably only use it once every couple of weeks, but think it is VERY useful to have around!

    Thanks. Have managed to stay the same weight for the last 2 weeks and am 4lbs below my target, which is not such a bad thing. Had to come off Glimepiride after 9/10 days on LCHF as I was going too low. Determined not to have go back! Fairly stable now though still struggling to keep levels down when I dog walk or garden in the mornings. Experimenting with different snacks during those times. Still love my almond cakes, and thank goodness for fat bombs!

    FBG: 5.9

    All I can say today about my food is that my BG spiked to the 9's... feeling disappointed at myself, upset, and very unmotivated... yes my numbers come back to 5's after 2 hours... but I need to lose weight and at this pace it won't happen... :(

    That sounds very interesting.

    I haven't tried it in that format yet. Does it hold together, as the starch in potato is what holds the standard version together when fried, as I understand it?

    It's not as sticky as potato that's for sure but as an alternative I like it, stop before it burns though...... I grate and cook with OO and some butter and keep it moving, bit of salt later on.
