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

Iam gluten free gaining weight why if i avoid all bread items i eat chicken beans beef along side salad no dressing rice or corn cereal fruits?

Gaining weight: That's great that you are not consuming a lot of carbs and are watching your diet. You also need to look at the overall quantity (and calories) of what you are eating as well. Are you exercising too? Without physical activity (cardio), it is hard to lose weight. You have to burn more calories than you are consuming. You might be doing this already and have another reason for weight gain. ...Read more

Can you tell me is corn good or bad on a diet when you quit eating all carbs like potato, rice, pasta, gluten bread?

Can you tell me is corn good or bad on a diet when you quit eating all carbs like potato, rice, pasta, gluten bread?

If you are aiming: For extremely low carbohydrates - think of corn as a starch. Corn should be eaten right after it is picked because the sugars in corn rapidly become starches. A large ear of sweet corn has > 24 grams of carbs. A program like atkin's induction phase may allow for only 20 net grams of carbs per day. ...Read more
