Ah thanks so much. I totally forgot yesterday and woofed a tikka masala! Only dawned on me as I was on my last mouthful! Idiot that I am! Tomorrow I'm hitting asda and stocking up on tasteless goodies smile

Remove all sweet things from your house, stock up on loads of sugar free snacks and carry them with you everywhere. That way you won't be tempted. I haven't got GD, but I would be fat if I ate carbs/sugar so I follow a fairly low carb/sugar free diet all the time - much healthier and we should all avoid sugar and flour based products.
Nuts are a good snack to keep in your handbag. I really like smoked almonds (can't remember the brand) but sold in big supermarkets. Cheese and cooked meats are also good, but not so good for your handbag. Cream cheese/cottage cheese are lower fat if you are worried about that. Egg fritata that you can just slice a bit when you fancy it? Olives?

Got the results of my GTT today and no surprises, the GD has crept back! I had it with my last pg, too. I'm only 17+3 so I'm feeling pretty deflated that, for the rest of this already complicated pregnancy, I can't even chow down on chocolate or mcdonalds!
Anyone got any GD-friendly foodie ideas that won't make me want to scrape off my taste buds in disgust?!
