Fruit juice also has lots of sugar (it's better to eat fruit than drink juice). ...Read more
Moderation: How much fat are we talking about? You need carbohydrates- to run the brain, heart, muscles etc. If your diet is over 50% fat, you may be limiting the ability of the body to function.

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.
