    How much coconut is added to the carrot cake? It’s not on the ingredient list.

    Sorry Vanesa, it’s half cup shredded/desiccated unsweetened coconut.

    Hi Matt could you use a good quality lamb sausage from your local butcher, instead of making the lamb Kofta?

    Hey Stu, you could use a 100% lamb sausage but even butchers do add sometimes add fillers which are high in carbs. They will also be a bit higher in fat, so just cook them in less oil/butter.

    Hi Carol, pretty much any type of herbal tea, black coffee or just hot water with lemon.
    Could also make a hot chocolate with 1 teaspoon of 100% cocoa, 30mls cream and a teaspoon stevia.
    Hope that helps!

    I drink Rooibos tea, also known as African red bush tea, no caffeine and has a vanilla smell to it.
    They sell in Woolies & Coles if your not keen on herbal teas

    Salmon & zucchini salad with rosemary was lovely!! Step 2 needs to include two teaspoons of butter-I hope it’s two teaspoons of butter.

    Hi πŸ™‚
    I’m just new today…so apologies for the many questions! Just wanted to check…are eggs able to be cooked anyway? Eg- big brekkie has fried eggs, but i’d probably prefer mine scrambled…I assume this is ok? Also, say you aren’t a fan of the mushrooms in the big brekkie for example…are you able to just leave them out or is in important you replace them with another ingredient? Thankyou! πŸ™‚

      Hi Mumof5 and welcome! You are right, your eggs can be cooked any way, just be conscious if you are adding anything when cooking them. Eg. A poached egg will have 4-5g fat whereas a fried egg will have an extra couple of grams of fat from the oil you cooked them in. A little extra fat isn’t going to hurt, but if you consistently have an extra 10g of fat per day, it will add 90 calories to your overall intake and if you are NOT burning the same or more calories, you could potentially store fat.

      You can leave out the mushrooms or substitute for the same weight of another above ground veg.
      I hope this helps!

    Hi Matt, Quick question, can you eat peas? Have had a beautiful dinner with lamb cutlets, peas mint and fetta cheese.
    I thought after I had it ” can I eat peas?…”

    Hi Carol, peas contain 14g carbs per 100g vs broccoli etc which is around 5-5g. So you can have them but in moderation πŸ™‚

    Hi all just a quick few questions. I’m into my second week and feel like I need a salad I’ve always been big on salad can I replace some of the meals that have cauliflower or zucchini for salad instead? Secondly why can I have cream if needed on a fasting day in my coffee and not milk? I’m enjoying most of the meals which surprised me. So far so good 😊

    Hi Matt
    Do you know why all the recipes have lost their names? Also is it possible to get the meal plan onto the App?

    Hey Matt
    Interested in your thought on erythritol sugar? Is this an appropriate substitute,
