So starting low carb tomorrow after my work colleague has had fabulous results!

So my meals planned for tomorrow are;


2 eggs with butter halloumi cheese, cherry tomatoes and ham.


Tin of tuna with full fat mayo and olive oil dressed salad.


Small portion of total ff yoghurt


Salmon with olive oil roasted veg (courgette,butternut squash, mushroom, broccoli, onion?)

Is this ok?

I'd say the only problems there are the butternut squash (might be okay in very small amounts) and onion (a full onion is 33 carbs!).

Crikey, never thought they'd be that bad! So onions and squash are out then!

Looks pretty good to me. Maybe not have tomatoes every day.

Recommend making own mayo.....light coloured olive oil, eggs, bit of salt, blitz. Done.

I hadn't even noticed the tomatoes! Yeah, I only use them sparingly too.
I was shocked at the onion too.

Careful with the ham - lots have added sugar in them. Shop bought mayo can also vary widely in carbs. Helmans is OK, or Delouis Fils which I buy in Waitrose.
