I've been eating ~40g / day for the last 4 months. Not always easy, but eventually my appetite subsided and my BG control improved.
I found shiritaki noodles very helpful when I am hungry, and they have almost no carb.
Maybe something similar is available in Ireland?
It is important to rinse them out, Then heat them in an ungreased pan, until they're fairly dry. They are good for chicken soup. Good luck.
