Which DD foods help you the most?
 
For me it is glucomannan..gives me hearty shakes and filling puds
and oat fibre...cos Ouizoids super low muffins are :sing: my down days at the moment!

If you mix whole milk (as it come from the cow before you take off the cream) and you mix it 50/50 with the heavier cream that is taken from milk.. the kind that is thick and you can whip it into whipped cream then that is *Half* and *Half*. Richer than whole milk, but not so heavy and oily as whipping (heavy) cream.

I think it should be quite similar. We may have differing percentage requirement for milks and creams, pertaining to the fat contents, etc., but I'll bet overall it's pretty close.

Lol! Caught out! Juddd seems to have given me an energy boost... So I was still not sleepy ...despite having only 550 cals I was wide awake!
Lying in bed with dh sound asleep, tapping away on my iPhone!

It works out well, cos lcf is always quiet during my day, and busy during my night! And it's Sunday tomorrow, so will have a nice lie in!

I can't speak from experience only having one DD LOL but having done IF and my first DD in only two mini meals I can tell you the single best thing that works for me is drinking lots of plain hot water first thing in the AM before anything on an empty tummy and then when ever you feel hungry drink a full glass.
Best thing that ever helped me.

Well it is an Ouizoid recipe..originally called "Super Low Cal Low Carb Chocolate muffin"!

Personally I will be forever grateful to ouizoid ...this keeps me going on my DD...and a piece with a cuppa is bliss.

The muffin is seriously HUGE! I have a mini silicone muffin tray, and I get 8 little muffins from it! One or 2 are fab with a coffee...and some even end up in a bowl of gluc pudding, as a little after dinner "dessert".

Here is the recipe as ouizoid posted it:


DRY
1/4 cup oat fiber
2 Tbs Hersheys special dark cocoa (20 cals) (or you could use coffee & cinnamon, or, like Beeb, a sachet of apple cider mix!)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 or a little less cup erythritol
1 tsp glucomannan powder

blend dry ingredients

WET
1/3 cup liquid eggwhite (30)
2 Tbs davinci SF vanilla syrup
2 Tbs hersheys sf chocolate syrup (15 cals) (or 2 T ff greek yogurt, FF sour cream or Walden Farms sweet dip)
mix together wet and dry and microwave for about a minute. There may be a little moist stuff on top--don't microwave until entirely dry.

Im thinking about 65 calories and 2-3 carbs for the thing. I sliced it up and topped with a little more hersheys sf syrup and it was so YUM. I think adding the glucomannan powder to the dry ingredients gave it a much moister crumb than you usually get with oat fiber--and of course cocoa acts like flour most of the time.

I have made a choc peanut one....by adding 2T PB2..adds an extra 45 cals...but so worth it!
The coffee & cinnamon one is lovely...add a little ginger spice, and it tastes like gingerbread!
I have also done a savoury one...using half a sachet of cup soup mix, and some herbs, or 2 T grated parmesan, a little ham and some herbs, and ommiting the sugar sub, and syrups, and replacing the liquids with water.

just remember to adjust the cal counts when you tweek!

I have a lot of fun on my DD's just trying out new flavours.

let me know if you try it, and what you think!

You could probably sub almond meal...but the cals and carbs would go up!
(perhaps half almond meal and half oat fiber?)

If you do as I do, and make 4, or 8 mini ones, you would only be getting 1T for 1 of the 4, or 2 of the 8! (using all oat fiber)
