I don't think it's wheat as much as it is the level of refining they do.

Have you tried really chunky whole grain stuff? It's like a meal all on its own. We've been getting heavy whole grain bread for kiddo to help keep him from spiking his blood sugar for hyper activity purposes, and that stuff toasted with a little cream cheese spread on is hearty, hearty.

My coffee is Tesco's value/basic one mate!
It is solely a drug served black in the morning to wake me up for work.

...I may try it though now you've suggested it

Could be the refining, sure it can't help much. I do love proper, grainy bread, especially the stuff with sunflower seeds in.

It should work with basics instant coffee mate. At least if it doesn't, you only wasted about 5p worth of coffee and another 10p of fats


Its nice to have a treat though, which is why I use the good stuff (Percol is my current fave, but I have some lidl columbian too for when that's gone).

Just make the coffee, tip it in the blender, add the fats and you will have a frothy coffee that fills your cup twice

Your government (like mine) doesn't want to actually solve the problem.

They want to create more intrusive laws instead.

Sounds filthy as #, I'll have a go, but I've been to town today so I'm not walking 300 stone stairs down to get coconut oil now, after work tomorrow.

That I can agree with.

They either want to rake in some extra tax money or create a revenue stream for their mates through the use of an NGO to "solve" such problems.

That's just lazy talk


If you decide to try it, get the cheap stuff from lidl or aldi, don't go paying 5 quid for the stuff from big supermarkets, I never noticed ANY difference.

That's the crazy thing though, cookery lessons and 1 hour circuit training a day at school would fix it in a generation.
It would pay for itself eventually with the fitter population not draining the health service.

Lazy talk haha yes! I forgot to top up my electricity key yesterday and had to walk back down after getting home, was not happy!
Cheers for the shout, I'll do Lidls in the week.

I'm amazed no one has managed to hack something you can plug your key into to stick a few quid on it by now.
Sure if you tried to use a month's work of electric, you would get nicked, but the off five or ten quid? I doubt they would notice.

I've thought the same, I can buy illegal hack thingy's to get free internet and TV but the energy 'keys' nobody is doing them.
Would be a good black market for sure.
I like having a 'top-up pre-pay' system with my energy though, I know the unit price is higher but it forces me to regulate my use because I actually hand over cash to buy it.
...on-topic, maybe crap food should have a tax per calorie/volume/mass ratio. When I buy crap processed food I always look at the calories per 100g label so I get the most for my money.

What the British need is less gov .less ministry unelected officials.britian is an example of what happens when gov gets to many mangers in it. Unfortunately I do see a change coming their but it will be one in which it becomes a caliphate which will be even worse.

The thing with the refining is that it makes it much easier for your body to digest it meaning the sugars from the carbs hit your system much faster and in higher amounts causing the spike.

With less refined carbs from whole, it takes time to break them down so the sugar is more timed release. The sugar hits your system over time instead of all at once, no pronounced spike.

*EDIT* Actually, cooking in general is an interesting balancing act between the necessary heat to kill pathogens or denature toxins, the chemistry needed to bond agents or produce goods, and destroying beneficial nutrients. Too much cooking or heat can actually make food less nutritious, but at other times, it's absolutely necessary to producing an edible dish that won't kill you.

This is not quite as simple as it sounds. Some are making out it's authoritarian which is fair enough.

But there are regulations on food otherwise I can sell you some cheap dog meat say it's prime beef and put mercury in it and kill you then say bad luck. A lot of countries have a big problem with obesity and it's getting worse, maybe having less super fatty food is not such a bad idea my 2c.

But when did it become the government's job to save you from yourself?

If I want to buy a can of Crisco and eat it straight off, that's not their business.

We still use it in a few things. It's used in our chicken and dumplings recipe, and our fruitcake recipe is a hand-down from generations. I am guessing it went through both the Depression and WWII and was modified accordingly each time. It uses Crisco (shortening), and I have no idea what would have been used prior to that modification ... so Crisco it is.
