Sorry about the hot flushes and hormonal stuff, Ruby G . I think it is true that it is easy to give into comfort /emotional eating when we are not feeling 100%.That’s definitely true for me right now.I don’t feel like cooking after getting in from visiting hubby and also this yucky cough is tiring.
Well done for pushing through and planning healthy meals.I like foraging too ( COVID lockdown started me on that) .I love nettle crisps ( like kale crisps) and we have an interesting wild mustard garlic plant here.
Have you heard of Dr Mindy Pelz? She has posted lots of videos and advice about low carb and fasting for ‘girls’ discussing how to address hormonal issues and monthly cycles . A bit too late for me 😉
Oh dear Elle-Mae I hope you can get your blood pressure sorted .Stress will increase it for sure Let us know how you get on today .

Margaret , hope you had a lovely day out at the English Heritage property and well done for getting back on track . A few pounds is no big deal and will soon be discarded .
Happysnap … my best advice is not to worry ! I used to get bogged down calculating macros and just gave up once I had understood the basic principles of staying as low carb as possible, cutting out white carbage ( bread, rice, pasta), fearing sugar rather than fat ..
Your meal plan is very low carb which is great but to be honest it doesn’t sound very satisfying ?? You could add some Greek yoghurt and a few berries , eggs , more green veg ? I honestly think you need to find what works for you without worrying too much about having the exact macros.
Have you had a look at some of the Fast 8OO recipes ? I think you might get a bit bored unless you include a few more interesting choices .You need to feel satisfied and happy with your foods .You could also skip breakfast if that works for you and spread your calories over 2 meals . Let us know how you get on.
Have a good day everyone .A lovely sunny day here which is very uplifting !
