Look into Paleo : Your lab numbers suggest you're on the path to diabetes. Even though you don't eat "sugar" any fiber or starch that your body can digest turns into sugar and fruit juice is sugar. Even things like diary that is thought of as healthy has sugar (lactose is a type of sugar). A person with lab numbers like yours has to limit all sugars and heal the damage. The paleo approach can help you do both. ...Read more

Lost 28lbs on 30 day hCG diet, day 11 in p4. Gained 12lbs w/abd distention (3.5") in last 10 days. Maintaining 1200 cal low carb diet. Causes?
Exercise: The HCG approach to weight loss is not recommended by multiple reputable medical organizations and fda (http://www.Fda.Gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm281333.Htm) clinical trials show no extra weight loss beyond diet alone. It can cause blood clots and serious depression. I recommend stopping hcg. Increasing exercise is a good way to get over a weight loss plateau. ...Read more
Should i remove proteins & carbohydrates from my diet, if I am on a low cal & low fat diet program?
Balance it out: You need all 3 dietary elements(carbs, proteins and some fat/oils) in your diet. Proteins are the most important nutrient and least harmful food...So do not exclude proteins...Just choose lean proteins which are free of fats(this will include fish, eggs, nuts and low fat dairy). You can have complex carbs but stay low on refined carbs like sugary foods(sweets) and sugary drinks. ...Read more

Do excess carbs/sugars get converted into saturated fat in our bodies? And if so, then would a high fat/low carb diet be healthier than a high carb/low fat diet?
Yes and No: Yes, you are right in that excess of carbs/sugars get converted into fat. So do eat carbs, but in moderation. Eating fat doe snot do any good, so i would say no to your second question.

In addition, get a good amount of proteins by eating fish, nuts & egg. ...Read more
