Yes, more than everything else - except proper "heavy cream" which has even a little more. 6g per tablespoon vs. (at most) 5.5 for HWC or nearly 10% more.

Manufacturing cream has the heavy cream numbers, it just has a few other ingredients, usually carragenan and a few others.

Necessity is the mother of invention.This should be your key to solving the difficulty. Dont forget that you live in a country with the greatest selection of very affordable food stuffs.

You may need to adjust your taste to whats available, but your first concern would be, I guess, to balance your BG values.

One final observation, the internet and insulin are not apart of the third world.Count your blessings.

If there is an Aldi near you and you haven't checked out their prices yet, you might want to do that. Around here, they have the most reasonable prices on fresh vegetables. Some of the other items I buy there are eggs and cream cheese. When the butter goes on sale there, I buy a bunch and freeze it.

It amazes me when I see people buying food on food stamps but then purchasing alcohol and cigarettes as well then going out and getting into a new car. SMH

Folks, this thread has become unkind. There is no indication that the OP is doing what has been mentioned. He is wanting help to find affordable ways to eat LCHF. Hopefully we can help him with this.

Kind or unkind is a matter of opinion and has nothing to do with the real issue. Some very good and helpful suggestions and facts have been offered on this thread. Other than say that he eats anything and lives in the USA, ThirdworldTheo has been silent. Mostly, people looking for advice are very glad to receive and acknowledge such help. If questions are asked they should be answered, so that the exchange progresses to a clear understanding between the OP and the posters. One way streets dont lead to anything . So in my opinion "its over to you Leo".

Well thanks to everyone's input ! It's very helpful.
I'm grateful for any suggestions ! I don't smoke or drink I am completely sober and clean , for me drinking is completely a unnecessary idea considering it is mainly sugar and carbs and leads to irrisonsibility .
Thank u veejay , I appreciate your defense cuz I was just curious what people do , Philip Internet is at the public library I am grateful to be In the us where there are resources , believe u me I know we got it good .
There is no need for self righteous attitudes, I hope to form a diabetic group that is fully supportive and open hearted and minded for all types one day ,
I am poor but I am grateful for everything I am blessed with ! Even this diabetes , it might seem like a curse at times but my experiences with it will let me help another diabetic some day .
I have lived with type 1 diabetes for almost half my life and feel very healthy very happy and so I must be doin something right , the main thing I feel to be aware of is inflation of the body and the ego . If u think u got it figured out it can all change in an instant !!
Hope y'all enjoy the day today and treat each other well , blessing to you all
