I may have to try this since I've been using sausage grease for too many years, glad I only eat this 2-3 times a year!

I do however make a gravy from milk and veg oil for my green fried maters!!!

"....The numbers represent grams of carbs per drink, e.g. what you’ll get if you order one in a bar.

When it comes to drinks it’s pretty straightforward. Pure spirits like whiskey, brandy, cognac, vodka, tequila contain zero carbs and they are all fine on low carb.

However, avoid sugar-sweetened drinks. Note that the popular drink Gin & Tonic is full of sugar, 16 grams – a common mistake on low carb. Switch to vodka, soda water and lime instead, and you’ll have zero carbs.

The worst option of all is to mix alcohol with soda or juice, this will be a sugar bomb....."


That I find hard to believe ! However, it does seem to be good news - except when you raid the fridge in a "munchies need" - which always seems to follow a "drinkies" or ten ! :roll:

Having said what I said in the last post, we were at a car-boot sale last weekend and I bought a book for 50p "The New High Protein diet" - Dr Charles Clark and Maureen Clark. Giving it a try - Have lost 4 kilos (8.8 lb) in five days - without cutting down on the drinks as mentioned by Mikey Moo ! - The recipes aren't up to much but if you take on board teh principles and get a book called "Carbs and cals" - meant for diabetics, you can come up with great food ! :)

[Edit - only rule is "keep total carbs below 40g a day" - STeak = 0, fried burgers =0, cheese =0, Bacon =0, eggs = 0, fried mushrooms = 0-1, and as mikey says "Hooch"=0 ! ]

{Edit 2 - The "munchies" aren't a problem either :D - Just keep a fried chicken leg, some cheese and a tomato on a plate in the fridge "For later" :D ]

Sounds great Pikey... the site I link to above has a recipe section with lots of yummy recipes in it. They're all free to access too :-)

It's the only thing that works for me... I just need to get back on it!
