What are your favorite, most often recommended healthy starch foods (carbs) for younger mildly obese patients with normal lipids? Looking for variety.

What are your favorite, most often recommended healthy starch foods (carbs) for younger mildly obese patients with normal lipids? Looking for variety.

Vegetables & fruits: The problem with starchy foods is that they can rapidly raise blood sugar causing Insulin spikes which fuel Insulin resistance/obesity/hyperlipidemia. It is best to avoid foods with a high glycemic index but a new measure that is also of value is the "carbohydrate density index." ' the best choices are most all fruits & veggies, though might be best to go easy on tropical fruits. See comment:. ...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?

Determine Yourself: Most marketing, advice&products, is only marketing to sell stuff, Not Reality. I disagree with other answers. To figure out what works for you, weigh daily, to 0.01 lbs accuracy, after up & commode, & record. Mentally do a detailed review of specific foods & quantities you ate previous day & Start Seeing What Works vs. What Does Not. LCHF really helps. Study my answers, DietDoctor.com & NuSI.org. ...Read more

Can eating chapathi only (as a dietary food) good for blood sugar patients? Is rice bad for blood sugar?

Can eating chapathi only (as a dietary food) good for blood sugar patients? Is rice  bad for blood sugar?

Carbohydrates: Eaten alone, chapathi and rice may cause your blood sugar to rise rapidly. Insulin doses and pancreatic response may not be able to keep up. If you want to eat those foods, adding protein, non-starchy (fibrous) vegetables, and healthy fat will help your system deal with the carbohydrate more gradually. Chapathi is a little more nutrient-dense than rice, though. http://tinyurl.com/mxm8qh3. ...Read more

I am taking one 250 mg softgel of magnesium daily? I heard is good for patient with IBS like me. Is this is good or healthy?

Probably good: Magnesium deficiency is very common; it is most likely the most underdiagnosed electrolyte deficiency in medical practice. That said, taking too much magnesium can cause diarrhea and abdominal pain. I recommend magnesium glycinate because it caused less intestinal upset than magnesium citrate or oxalate. Start with a low dose and gradually work your way up. ...Read more

What are healthy snacks for trying to loose weight?

Snacking weight gain: Snacking can be a very problematic process for individuals trying to loose weight.
