Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch  and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level. Do note that too much carb may not be good for your health. I don't believe extreme diet does anyone any good. Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more

What is the effect of dairy (plain milk, plain yogurt, cheese, butter) on insulin level.

What is the effect of dairy (plain milk, plain yogurt, cheese, butter) on insulin level.

Insulin release: Hi. Most dairy products have some sugars in them, and they stimulate insulin release accordingly. Butter has no sugars, but is usually put on things that have sugars/carbohydrates, and as such, insulin is still released in response to the whole package. I advise nonfat dairy for everyone, not just diabetics. Heart disease is twice as likely in diabetes as it is in matched non-diabetics. Good luck! ...Read more

Lactose intolerant: almond or soy milk?Can high sodium in almond make soy better choice?2cup of soy milk a day bad for a male? Soy cause breast growt

Your choice...: I like almond milk. Soy milk causes me and many others to have large amounts of gas. If you don't have this problem, then use the soy as it has more protein. Otherwise, almond milk is a good choice so long as you don't have a nut allergy. Use the unsweetened version of either one... ...Read more

As doctor have say low fat diet is not healthy does that mean i replace low fat milk with whole milk and eat butter and whole fat cheese?

Low Fat Diet: No i think your doctor did not mean to consume fatty foods but to eat a balanced diet, not one specifically trying to eliminate fats as some fats, like omega-3's are essential fatty acids and quite beneficial to consume. Focus on a plant based diet and learn more about the mediterranean diet as it is regarded as one of most balanced, healthy diets that limits many diseases from developing. ...Read more

Yes: White rice has a high glycemic index, which means it causes a rapid rise in your blood sugar. Part of the Insulin response to that rapid increase in blood sugar makes you fat. A tiny amount won't hurt, but it makes it difficult to lose weight. Replace the bread with vegetables. Not rice. Starch is not a required part of a meal.
