We've been eating a very low carb diet since Jan/Feb, following the principles of the Blood Sugar Diet by Dr Michael Mosley (I'm diabetic, both of us are overweight). We both lost around a stone very quickly, then the loss slowed down, and we gradually started eating more carbs (we didn't follow the diet slavishly anyway, OH would never survive on 800 cals daily, not with a physical job). Both of us have noticed our weights starting to creep up though, and I'm feeling the effects of too many carbs - bloating, sluggish, achey joints. So we're back to less carbs and eating healthily for the time being.
This morning we had a veggie frittata for breakfast, then tinned salmon and salad for lunch. For dinner I've made pork, apple and sage burgers, we'll have these with salad leaves and I'll make a chickpea salad.....tinned chickpeas, homegrown chopped tomatoes, cucumber and red onion, with cubed feta and a balsamic/olive oil dressing.
Tomorrow we're having steak and salad....got steak half price off the reduced shelf in the supermarket.
