Thank you for the warm welcome Tisha. Its a shame that Holland is so far behind the other countries. I know that in Sweden, Low Carb is very popular. Maybe soon. I did find the Carbquik and Dreamfields pasta on www.dieetwebshop.nl/ Its a shame its still pretty expensive, but good for treats, I guess. They are considered "frankenfoods" and some people can tolerate them and some cannot.
I've heard of many people having great success with Low Carb and diabetes. Definitely worth researching for yourself.
I've been low carbing for five years, but since moving to NL I've found it more difficult. Too many yummy foods that I've missed are so tempting. Its time to get back to it and get serious about following the plan again. I have gained back about eight pounds since moving here, and I feel so awful when I'm not on plan. I have no health problems, luckily.
Unfortunately, meats cost more here and I'm on a lower budget so its hard to plan out meals and stay in budget too.
I did just pick up 700g chicken at Albert Hein for 4 euro. We are barbecuing tonight. Tomorrow I am making Hamburgers with Oopsie buns.
I live in a small town west of Rotterdam.
Low Carb since 2007. Lost 60lbs and kept it off. Starting a new goal to lose an additional 30lbs. My ticker is in pounds not kilos.
