I went to Tesco earlier and stocked up on meat, eggs, nuts and veggies. I have made out a food plan for the next two days. I am neither going to count cals or carbs but stick to the 3 meals and a couple of snacks a day and hope for the best.:D

The best thing about lower carb is that it keeps my blood sugar stable, no massive highs after bacon and eggs like there would be after a bowl of pasta and a couple slices bread.:eek:

Tues 20th Jan

B- 2 sausages (tesco finest so no rubbish in them hopefully lol), 1 slice bacon, mushrooms, fried egg (in olive oil)

L- bag of salad leaves with mayo, ham, sardines (sounds gross but I like it ;))

D- Steak, mushrooms, mixed peppers

Snacks- 2 celery sticks with cream cheese, 10 brazil nuts

Yes here I go again. I really want to succeed this time because if my hba1c aka over 3 months blood sugar levels haven't decreased from 7.8 when I go back to diabetic clinic in July, I will be put on insulin. I really do no want that to happen, as you low carbers know insulin is the 'fat hormone' and that'll just make me fatter plus I will have low blood sugar to contend with and that's not pleasant.

Today's meal plan is
B LT shake
L chicken, pork chop, egg
D CD soup

I need to use up my shakes and soups first. I have made a shopping list for next week and I may attempt some recipies.:eek:

I've none in atm and I don't feel like going shopping today, been awake all night. I have made out a list of food and veg though and will get them in tomorrow. At least the shake and soup will provide 2/3 of the vits and minerals I need.;)

I will aim for a maximum of 50g carbs a day but I don't want to get bogged down in trying to count (maths was never my strong point lol). I will be happy if I can avoid bread, cereal, potatoes, rice and pasta, eat 3 moderate meals a day and no gorging.:)

I was gonna say I thought you were a leg man Jim but it's too early in the morning for that carry-on :angeldevil:

Yes the 50g is allowing for a bad day. ;):D

Hi,

If you are concerned about blood sugars etc, try reading about south beach diet. Developed by a cardiologist with this in mind, Very similar to Atkins in the first phase but a little less strict. I have been following it for nearly two weeks and am finding it really easy and i can see the weight coming off.

Just a suggestion.

Hi Bex, thanks for your comment.:) I find South Beach really confuses me, doesn't take much mind.:D

I'd a good day today. Much better than I expected, yay!

I was reading that Atkins is recommended for type 1 diabetes.

Not that I understand the difference between the two, mind, ;)

I don't feel there is that much difference between South Beach diet and Atkins...its just a low fat version of Atkins really.

My brother has just lost 2 stone in 6 weeks on SB diet. I'm really proud of him.

Thanks Jimbo...now if we are talking about fantastic pics.....LOOK AT YOURS!!!

I've just started South Beach (basically Atkins, but with less fat!!) to get me BMI under 25. When I finished the diet, my BMI was still unhealthy even though my % body fat is 'normal'. Not sure I like the BMI scale LOL.

Sharon runs off to eat bacon wrapped asparagus...yum!!
