It depends: Whichever one has the least amount of carbs is probably best; if you choose bread then choose whole grain bread. Consider whole grain crackers that also have seeds as those will be lower in carbs (such as mary's gone crackers). In following a low carb diet you don't need to completely avoid grains but keep the amount of grains relatively low; whole gluten-free grains are relatively healthy. ...Read more

These raise blood sugar less. See http://tinyurl.com/y8f4cagu ...Read more

Weight and Activity: Yes that diet can certainly be sustained if it provides for the caloric expenditure of the individual on a daily basis. The mix of foods you choose is also very good.

Yes: Lots of fiber means fruits and vegetables. These are "good carbs" that are less caloric, less "glycemic" and less of a metabolic stress than sweets + starches. Atkins originally didnt allow much carb of any kind, but most doctors now recommend keeping the good carbs and focusing on limiting sugar, sugary drinks, sweets, commercial baked goods and starches. ...Read more

I see an emphasis on low carb eating, even from bariatric docs here. Are fruit, yogurt, high fiber cereal not recommended for weight loss?

Mentally do a detailed review of specific foods & quantities you ate previous day & Start Seeing What Works vs. What Does Not. LCHF really helps.
