    Hi All, just realised that it has been AGES since I visited this thread.

    B: Coffeencream x 2 (they were very small)
    L: Lidl protein roll with marmite and butter
    D: Moussaka with cauli cheese - divine and VERY filling
    S: 3 squares 70% choc

    I'm loving the lidl rolls for convenience, BG and fibre contribution, but I am feeling the lack of veg, especially now I am on a fat only brekkie.

    B - 3 bacon, black coffee with butter (run out of coconut oil)
    L - avocado & babybels
    D - mixed meat skewers from butcher with onion & peppers. They were proper rummy and I think I could risk the flour coating on a few of the pieces.

    1500 calories or thereabouts (including a glass of merlot), 40g protein, 120g fat and 25g carbs. I normally overdo the protein so I don't mind this being a bit lower than it should be.

    B - 3 fried eggs and mushrooms
    L - not what I had taken to work, colleague took me out so had mushroom and spinach omelette with salad
    D - took hubby out to a Turkish place, platter to start, I just had the hallumi and meat, then lamb mince wrapped in aubergine slices with a salad instead of rice. Was sooooo yummy and so much nicer than it sounds. If anyone lives within a drive of Petersfield I would recommend giving it a go (fez)

    Your dinner sounds amazing, so it must have been spectacular ;)

    My B: Cacao zoats with flaxseeds and cream
    L: Leftover fried baby octopus + squid with salad and mayo
    D: chicken feet and kimchi soup with a lot of lemon juice, then dessert made with cream, raw cacao, vanilla and gelatin :hungry:, then well-fermented kefir with cinnamon, handful of nuts

    I feel I have quite some appetite recently, but I have also lost weight, so I guess this is alright. Compared to some posters here I feel a bit like a glutton :bag:

    B - bulletproof coffee. Slightly altered recipe - a bit less butter and the addition of a good glug of double cream which makes it so much smoother to drink. Nearly 500 kickstartin' calories of fat & caffeine!
    L - avocados and babybels
    D - sea bass fried in butter with spinach.
    S - a few macadamia nuts

    L - bag of pork scratchings
    Snack - cucumber and port salut cheese
    D - pork belly slices with Chinese spice, with courgette noodles and green beans roasted with chilli oil and cheese

    B: another cheese and chive biscuit thing with scrambled egg and smoked salmon
    L: baked avocado with tuna mayo and goats cheese, salad leaves, red pepper, pine nuts and fresh basil. Basil really enhanced this salad. Don't know why I hadn't thought of adding it to salad before!
    D: harissa chicken with medley of roast veg (green beans, onions, olives, tomato) and goats cheese; lemon tart & cream

    Reading what everyone else has I think I need to eat less but when I make things like lemon tart there is only me to eat it and it won't freeze so I need to eat it before it goes off! Next time will make half the recipe and force people to come round and help me eat it. Hate wasting food.:(

    B: Scrambled eggs, bacon, Chipolatas and a mushroom

    L: hot smoked salmon with a bit of salad

    Last slice of cheesecake

    D: hot wings, blue cheese dressing and another bit of salad.

    Opened a bottle of dry Prosecco but after one glass lost interest as it tasted too sweet. HID seems to be enjoying it.

    B: Ran out of eggs, so sliced a not-very-ripe avocado and fried it in butter with mushrooms, tomatoes and a sprinkle of cheddar on top. Not bad. Certainly improved the avocado.
    S: Dissolved a tsp of cocoa powder in a little boiling water, topped up with coconut milk, added a tsp of sweetener (xylitol) and a glug of double cream and microwaved it for 45 secs.Fab!

    Woke up to a 6.5... not the direction I've been been aiming.

    B: chocolate bullet drink... with a little stevia, a little almond extract, really frothy mmm.

    L: 1/2 avocado, purple 'slaw, hunk of brie, 2 slices of salami and 2 home grown tiny tomatoes.....(better than last year).

    S: nuts, too many nuts. Brie.

    Had a Jones for KFC this afternoon. Needed something fried.

    D: homemade fried chicken thigh, with a gramflour batter made it soo crispy. With a green stir fry of cabbage, courgettie, chilli and corriander with dragon's den zero noodles (much nicer ones than the other pink slim noodles from HB ) With left over batter I fried some peppers, mushrooms and onion rings. Tasted lush. +1.6 2h post... felt a lot better about this mornings meter reading.

    Yesterday I had....
    B. Bulletproof coffee - I'm addicted. Just the way coffee should be with double cream and coconut/almond oil.
    S. Pork scratchings
    D. 3 Chicken thighs with crispy skins and peas and sweetcorn.
    ....everyone was having a late supper so I nibbled on some redskin peanuts instead.
    I'm always not hungry but I'm now aware of how much protein I'm eating. I think it's the protein keeping weight on and keeping hunger pangs away. Or is it the fat which stops the hunger? :)

    Well I have learnt the hard way that skipping meals doesn't lower blood sugar.
    Was dashing out to a hospital appointment this morning and had run out of yogurt and berries so had a slice of Burgen toast with peanut butter.
    Reading stayed tthe same!

    yes you can have more - some bods have 2 tablespoons. In london you should be able to get a tub of KTC coco oil for £2.20 and holland and barret have an offer on at the mo for some virgin coco oil at £6 a shot. very nice it is too. Oh decaf bulletproofs are worth a go too. Wonder when nero's and the like will start offering them? Where do you get your raw choci powder from - I am unsure what to buy but would like to try at some stage?
