    Had mini pork pies for lunch. Horrible. Greasy. Shit. Hydrogenated vegetable oil - mega shit. No wonder people are all chunky.
    I love my bread machine! Making sandwiches for lunch every day helped me to lose over 10kg. With more exercise and more attention to portion control in general it's stayed off :-)

    For evening meal yes. We eat well mostly. It is lunchtime stuff that is the issue (with a bit of laziness thrown in - accepted). It's cold and so the temptation to something a bit "fatty" is strong. The main thing for me is that I get bored with the range of stuff and so we end up with a pasty or some other factory-made shit. I know in Nigella Lawson land I would make a batch of all sorts of fancy healthy lunches in little tupperware containers and live happily ever after but mostly it's bread and cheese until the monotony of it gets the better of me.

    I miss the lovely freshly made stuff that I could buy when we were in London. We have a greasy spoon cafe on the industrial estate but a bacon and egg buttie is not really "healthy" is it? (jolly nice though )

    Keto is a high fat diet, ~70% of consumed calories from "fats".

    Have a google and make your own mind up; I looked into it after NigelH mentioned it on here.
    Having met Mr H, I can guess what level of research he had indulged in, so had a dig around and decided to give it a try.

    The results were dramatic.
    Christmas, the diet went sideways (xmas dinner without roasties?) and comfort eating with lurgy; only just starting to get back on track.
    I have not been hitting it hardcore, rather a lazy keto version; but a plate of pan fried steak with Kale cooked in butter, onions and mushrooms in cream sauce: is not actually a problem!
    Salads are even easier.
    Being hungry is not an issue.
    I do miss bread though.

    Adds more fat. The goal is to have 70% of your calories come from fat.

    You cut down on carbs so that your body goes into ketogenesis (hence keto). That means it burns fat as your primary source of fuel.

    It has the benefit of a much smoother bloody sugar level instead of the contant spike and troughs that you get from carbs. Before keto I would get sugar cravings and be hungry, that was because my body had metabolised the carbs I had eaten, turned them into sugars and burned them and now needed more.

    Now I dont get hungry and have to remind myself to eat.

    Try the 90 second bread.
    4tbsp of almond flour
    1tbsp of olive oil
    0.5 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
    0.5 tbsp of baking powder
    1 egg

    Mix the lot and microwave for 90 seconds.

    Slice it, toast in the grill and butter it.

    Gorgeous!
