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

What do I do to get on a low fat, low carb, high fiber diet and loss weight fast?

What do I do to get on a low fat, low carb, high fiber diet and loss weight fast?

It depends: If you would like to do a low fat, low carb, high fiber diet, i'm assuming you'll be taking high protein as well. Then, make sure you take at least 60-70 grams or lean protein per day, less than 50 grams of carbs (fiber does not count), and keep the fat below 20 grams, all from fish or plant based. Three meals and two snacks daily. Another option if you don't want to do high protein is ornish diet. ...Read more

Why is my bg always elevated in the am? I am diet and exercise controlled, A1c down from 7.6 to 6.3, weight down 30 lbs., low-carb, high fiber diet.

Question?: Do you eat late or snack before bed? Sometimes what people eat late can carry over to the next am and affect the bs. The other possibility is dawn phenomenon. Some people have higher morning blood sugars due to hormones which are highest in the am and they drive up the blood sugar also at that time. Talk to you doctor to see which is the problem and the appropriate treatment. ...Read more

My friend had high fat low carb diet and omit wheat, rice, sugar oat and all other cereals from food list. Is it safe? M indian n can"t forego wheat.

Fad diet: This "pop" diet -- despite the elaborate "scientific theory" presented by its proponents -- probably works like most of the other diet fads by limiting food choices. It's your friend's business; i trust this person will use appropriate, cost-effective supplements as needed if it's too restrictive. ...Read more

I regularly eat a brand of low carb wrap with 26 grams of fiber. Is fiber in a processed product like this as beneficial as naturally occurring fiber?

I regularly eat a brand of low carb wrap with 26 grams of fiber. Is fiber in a processed product like this as beneficial as naturally occurring fiber?

That depends: There are benefits to both soluble and insoluble fiber. They affect the gut bacteria in different ways. So it's hard to say if it's "as beneficial". If the wrap mostly organic, I would continue to include it in your diet and I would fill it with lots of fresh vegetables! ...Read more

On low carb diet, what is the minimum carb, protein, fat and fiber that I need each day?

To many variables!: It depends if you exercise a bit. You can be more liberal with carbs. Obviously if calories don't come from carbs, they come from protein and fat.

Benefits and dangers of low carb high fat ketogenic diets?

Benefits and dangers of low carb high fat ketogenic diets?

Extremes: I believe it is better for most to eat nearly everything in moderation instead of going on an extreme diet. I don't see how getting ketosis, which may reduce your appetite, can be good for the body. As for the high fat, too much saturated fat is likely harmful because it promotes inflammation. If you must, try unsaturated fat. ...Read more
