Can you eat eggs on a high colostrol diet ?

Can  you eat  eggs  on a high colostrol diet    ?

Yes: If you're being treated for "high cholesterol", diet can be helpful. If you love cholesterol-rich eggs, it's still you choice. About 90% of what you read online, and some advice you may get from physicians, is sub-scientific. Staying physically fit is at least as important as food choices to managing cholesterol and coronary risk. If you truly need medication, don't hesitate. Best wishes. ...Read more

What is the best fruit to eat on a low carb diet can you eat crackers with unsalted top on a low carb low colostrol diet ?

What is the best fruit to eat  on a low carb diet can you eat crackers with unsalted top on a low carb low colostrol diet   ?

Crackers are: carbs and its best to avoid them. Ezekiel bread is made from sprouted grains and is a good substitute for carbs. It's in the frozen food section at the market and comes in a variety of types. A bit expensive but dense so it goes a longer way than regular bread. Best fruit is what is low on the glycemic index. Search for a chart on the net. Berries are best. Peace and good health. ...Read more

On diet and eat less calories, end up not able to sleep bc of low blood sugar. eat balanced nutritious meals. What am I doing wrong? How can I avoid ?

Nocturnal hypoglycem: Is the biggest problem that you are unable to sleep? And you think that is because your blood sugar is low? Have you checked your blood sugar at night (when you think it's low)? What are the readings? If that is truly the problem, often we asks diabetics to eat a midnight snack (just before going to bed). Ice cream works well. It supports the blood sugar long enough to sleep soundly. Don't overdo. ...Read more

If I eat mostly saturated fat for month (bacon, cream), on a very low carb diet w/ lots of veggies, what should happen to me ? testing blood & weight

Diet changes: This sounds like the very popular Adkins diet. If you maintain this diet and seriously curb carbohydrates, you will likely see a notable weight loss. From a blood testing perspective, I would anticipate an elevation in your total cholesterol and LDL levels which can elevate your cardiac risk long term. ...Read more

24 weeks pregnant, having gestational diabetes. Should i avoid fruits intake completely? If not what r the fruits i can eat & quantity to eat? Pls help

Fruits are OK: Along with everything else, in moderation. There are no magic or toxic foods. There is not sufficient info to tell you how much to eat. You need specific instructions for you from a registered dietitian, not generalized and homogenized info from the internet. Make your appointment soon and discuss w/your doctor. ...Read more

I read that diabetics should avoid fatty foods. Fatty foods have low GI & they satiate me for hours, keeping calorie count low. So why is this bad?

I read that diabetics should avoid fatty foods.  Fatty foods have low GI & they satiate me for hours, keeping calorie count low.  So why is this bad?

Fatty foods: Everyone should avoid fatty foods except for rare occasions. I assume you have type 2 diabetes. For the next week please check your blood sugar at breakfast and just before lunch and the next day check before lunch and before supper. If the blood sugar values are OK don't worry. If they are not please try and find more acceptable food. ...Read more

Have type 2 diabetes; and have been on a strict ketogenic low carb diet. Ques: is it safe to eat up to 8 eggs a day in terms of ldl?

It does not : Need to be ketogenic in my view. Sugar is the villain and you do need a supplement of vitamin b1 + magnesium + multivitamin. It has recently been shown that diabetics excrete a lot of vitamin b1 in urine so it is important to replace it. ...Read more

After the hCG diet how do you keep the weight off ? Can you drink alcoholic beverages on the diet?

You can't!: The major problem with every diet (the hcg, adkins, south beach, etc) is that when you stop it, you always regain the weight when you go back to eating the way way you were before. That's why the diets advertise losing weight quickly but rarely show people who kept the weight off. Remember: alcohol contains calories which can cause weight gain like any other drink. Limit it as much as you can. ...Read more

Can you gain muscle and burn fat by eating Italian food? I eat dough and cheese, but I stay within a calorie budget of 2200 cal. I'm 16 & male

You can help build: Muscle w/protein and burn fat w/exercise. Exercise will also help you to build muscle because we tear muscle fibers apart when exercising and when the grow back together they create more muscle mass. Peace and good health. Higher protein and lower carb can be good but see doc first. Italian food can be high carb. ...Read more

Take Metformin: As we grow older, we tend to shift in a "diabetogenic" direction. We become Insulin resistant, and our blood sugar and Insulin both tend to rise. Meformin restores Insulin receptor sensitivity, and blocks the production of sugar by the liver (gluconeogenesis). I understand your reluctance to take "drugs." metformin is a derivative of the french lilac, used for diabetes for hundreds of years. ...Read more

Calories count: The calories in your total daily intake may help determine if you will lose weight. Being active and increasing your metabolism daily will help. Try not to exceed the amount of calories you need in a day- try to take in about 200-300 less calories a day in order to lose 1/2 to one pound a week. ...Read more
