Default Full Cream Spike?

Had Full Thickened Cream 80ml today with my breakfast the Cream had Total 2.4 Carbs and it spiked my BS

Do others find Cream doing this to them???

I had 50g or onion and 50g of Belle peppers with it as a sauce also that i made with the bacon grease, eggs and bacon that's it. I know eggs and bacon have not spiked me before, so hmmm

The thickened cream is the obvious suspect. Too many carbs?

How much of the cream contained the 2.4 gram of Carb? Did you use too much of it? It could be whatever is used to thicken it was the culprit too. Check out the ingredients.

Ann explained to you about double cream and thickened cream. The thickened version prob'ly has added carbs, which is why it spiked you. Better to do with the double cream.

I believe it must be the onions. Onions contains sugar and that's why it can be caramelised.

I looked everywhere for double Cream but could not find any maybe AnnC being from Australia might be able to put me onto a shop that sells it.

Regarding the onion, was only quarter of a onion 50g but yeah i was stunned to learn how many carbs in onions.

Only started low carbing today as in 20g or less daily, for the last week i thought i was Low Carbing as i didn't eat breads pasta and your typical carb foods but did it fruit 2-4 pieces a day not knowing how many carbs they had i thought just throw out the breads ect and eat fruit and plenty of veggies.


Anyway todays breakfast worked out to have 16.6 net Carbs after i made it and eaten it and then went to add it all up


Well now i know to add up first before eating lol
