    Oh I forgot! We usually have pancakes or crepes on Sunday morning- I started cooking eggs as our 'special breakfast' more often, but when we did have pancakes, I had an 'egg crepe', which is an egg beaten (with a fork) with a little cream, a tsp xylitol and about a tblsp cream. Put butter in a frypan, add the egg mix and swirl to coat pan like you would a crepe. Flip and cook other side. Take off pan and fill with a mix of ricotta, vanilla, lemon rind, tsp xylitol. Serve with strawberries. SOOO yummy and gets you over that feeling of missing out on pancakes!

    Mmmm pancakes, yum.

    I make a low carb 'pancake' by whisking a few eggs and adding mashed banana and a little cinnamon.

    I cook it like a pancake, then drizzle some honey over it. Yummo

    Have you been counting your carbs?
    Nah, I don't count carbs because I don't need to lose weight. For me its all about feeling better by eliminating sugar, wheat and grains. I detoxed from sugar in June 2012 and now I can eat dairy or fruit without getting sugar cravings. Now that I read that it kinda sounds contradictory, I eat lactose and the fructose in small amounts of fruit, no added sugar and only low carb fruits like berries, pears etc.

    Is this safe during pregnancy?

    I have tried to stick to around 20g carbs per day (usually with a cheat day on Sundays), and it helped me to lose the 14kg I gained during pregnancy. I'm now at 57kg but would like to get to 55kg so I am going to keep going with the 20g carb limit per day. Once I reach my goal, I would then be happy to add some dairy and fruit back into my diet.

    Just a quick update in case anyone is reading up on low carb diets. I have lost another kilo. I'm at 56.7kg now and doing my best to get to my goal weight of 55kg.

    Low carb is really working well for me, just wish I could sneak in a bit more chocolate!
