Getting my head around loosing the carbs - not bothered about bread, pasta or any of those things......
But I am seriously craving sweet things. Anyone got any receipe ideas for sweet treats other than auger free jelly and cream?

What about making some ganache? You can roll it into truffles by coating it in cocoa powder or pour into little pots and eat with berries:

Gently heat some cream until hot but not boiling. Pour over an equal quantity of finely chopped dark chocolate - 85% or more. Stir once the chocolate is melted then let it set in the fridge.

One tablespoon of whipping cream whipped into peaks. Few dashes of vanilla essence whisked in. Then mix 1 table spoon of lowest carb peanut butter and 1 teaspoon of coco powder until a smooth paste then slowly fold into the cream mixture. Makes a lovely chocolate whip style thing. Carbs is about 3-4g
