When pregnant with GD I replaced the sprinkle of brown sugar on my oats with cinnamon instead. Might be worth a try to see if it makes a difference? Cinnamon actually stabilises blood sugar so you can flatten out the high and subsequent plummet cycle. Something to think about anyway...

    It's so hard starting out. I have very little discipline so it will be interesting to see how this goes for me over the month (and more). I think most important is not to beat yourself up when you slip. Just start over and keep trying to do your best.
    I agree completely with the sugar, crave it so much more if I have it in the morning.....constantly, the whole day I will feel like something sweet, otherwise it's just the evenings that crave anything and everything sweet
    We also substitute cinnamon for the sugar in porridge it may not be that great first go, but it's not bad, I've even weened DD off sugar in her porridge with cinnamon.

    It's not just sweet stuff I eat too much of during the day. It's anything and everything - sweet or savoury. I'm not necessarily even hungry. I'm just back and forth to the pantry and fridge all day, sometimes without even thinking about it; and by the time I do think, it's too late, I've already done the damage. Can't wait until I find paid work again, so I won't be spending so much time at home with constant access to food.

    I am the opposite, I find it easier to make good food choices when I am at home. At work, I would be really busy, get super hungry and then make a bad food choice. The office biscuit tin beckoned me in the afternoons and it was always someones birthday so there seemed to be a lot of cake going around, plus friday night drinks.

    At home, I can control what food comes into the house, so I try to have nothing tempting around, no chocolate, no biscuits.

    So Catzilla can you try and write down what food you eat for a whole day, and then you could perhaps try to make some better choices the following day.

    I find keeping track of food helpful also, there is an app my fitness pal, and I log my food, so easy to use and you see how many calories you have consumed.

    Even if I don't have any junk in the house, if I want it badly enough, I just go out and get it anyway. Healthy food often seems to go off in the fridge before I get around to trying to eat it.

    I used to use CalorieKing to log what I ate, but it made no difference whatsoever to my eating habits even seeing how much was going in each day.

    Can you give me an example of some LCHF foods or meal ideas? Ta x

    anything with eggs. Full of protein to fill you up. Boiled, omelette, frittata.
    Bacon and eggs
    butter
    cream
    cheese
    salads
    dip with chopped celery and carrot. The Delish dips are both yummy and very low carb.
    Protein and veg - so steak/chicken/fish and vegies, just don't have too much potato. Substitute with sweet potato or cauliflower mash.
    Tunned tuna
    Stir fry
    naked burgers - basically what you put on a burger minus the bun, it really is still yummy.
