No worries at all; happy to help!
Honestly, hand on heart it's not been an easy ride, I've had to ditch all of the following (mainly because they're all carb laden): *sob*
Potatoes (although I do have these on my blow out day)
Breakfast Cereals (Porridge is the lowest carb, but if you love cereal, you'll lose most of your carbs to these)
Soda (Coke, Fizzy Drinks, Added Sugar etc)
and all the obvious culprits, biscuits, cake, crisps, choc (except Dark) etc
*but* the pay off for me was not having to use meds, and I've found other bonus' too, like not up all night in the loo, my eyesight isn't blurry any more, my fatigue has gone and my legs don't ache as much anymore (I used to have really bad restless leg syndrome), and obviously losing weight and feeling good in a size 16 dress *lol*.
You can do all your carbs at once, which when I get bored I'll have a bowl of fruit and fibre cereal and that'll be 40 carbs, then some bacon, egg and iceland hash browns (the HB are only 10 carbs each, and you really get a lovely potato hit with these *lol*). Or you can spread them out, I used to do 45, 20 and 45 as I loved breakfast and snacking at night. It's over the month or so, I've bit by bit lowered it and found 15, 20, 25 work best for how I like to eat.
Your blood sugar monitor will be your main guide, I hate using it, because I don't like using the pen that makes me jump, so I spike myself with the lancet directly and do it that way (yes, I'm a quirky person *lol*) where I can guage the pain for myself. *lol*. Even doing this for a couple of weeks, gives you a really good idea of what foods spike your blood sugar. For instance I realised after having foods with sorbitol in, my blood sugar rocketed. Have a nose at Michael Mosleys' book called fast 800 diet, he gives tons of examples, it's a bit hard core diet for me, but the general rules on low carb eating is spot on. Also if you're on facebook, check out low carb, high fat groups. I've personally found eating nuts (like you say, they are high in fats), have actually made me lose weight, as it's the carbs that were putting weight on me, and nuts are full of good fats too.
My blow out days, are very similar to my old way of eating, so carb laden, spuds and choc! After doing this for a couple of months now, I've found because I'm so strict 6 days a week, my blood sugars don't spike anywhere near like they used to and I'm never in the danger zone now either, the max number after a blow out day would be pre-diabetic, and I'm more than happy with that.
I was super skeptical at first, but thought I'll give it two week and see if it works, it did and happy with this way of life for me. It's worth a 2 week go I'd say. Yes, it's definitely possible to eat good fats, low carb and lose weight, I certainly have. Honestly, I know this won't work for some, but for me, it has and although I don't recommend it for everyone, I do think it's worth a go, even just to see the different with your blood sugar numbers (you'll be amazed..I certainly was!)
Righteo, talking of food, off for me treats! *lol*.
