    Just found an old recipe in a very old cookbook, how to make margarine using clarified beef dripping, lard, butter, lemon juice, stale bread.  Amazing when you find out that we are just going back to our grandparents days.  
    Some of the old recipes show how things change in life. One recipe to make puff pastry, used 2lbs. of flour and 1 & half pounds of the best butter. The total price was 3 shillings.
    Showing my age, I think.

    Those old recipes are the best! I've got heaps of recipe books and you'd also be surprised over the years that portions have gotten larger and more sugar and other sorts of flavours are being added so your best sticking to old recipes! I've made that sort of puff pastry once before, turned out even better then the bought stuff!

    Dessicated Coconut.  I am having trouble finding out if this has fructose in it.  I thought for a change I would add some toasted coconut to my yoghurt for a change.

    The other thing I am unsure of, is the time when your appetite control comes back-  I find I can go for quite a few hours past the midday mark for lunch and do not require a snack (nearly 4 weeks sugarfree), though my husband still eats by the clock, even though we have very similar sugar free foods.

    Thanks for your communication Janelle and others,  it is nice to know that there are people who can help and give support.

    desicated coconut has about 3.25g of fructose per 100g.  I would doubt you would eat 100g or more in one sitting so it should be fine.  I use the shredded coconute more these days myself.
