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
Depends on size: And activity. No more than 100gm of carbohydrates (including sugar) is needed. One needs about one gm protein/kg of body weight. Fats need not make up more than one third of the total calories. Total caloric intake depends on the size and activity of the person. The best guide for caloric intake is the person's weight/bmi. You may wish to consult a nutritionist. ...Read more
I've lost 60lbs since march. I changed diet completely. No carbs. No fried foods and no sugar. Walk 3-4 miles a wk does this sound unexplained? ?
Not necessarily: Depends on how many empty calories you used to eat. Had patients who drank 6 cans of soda a day-that's 900 calories/day! Just from soda. Cut it out and weight dropped off. Would suggest increasing walking (at least 1/2 h/day, even if split up)-helps maintain muscle mass. ...Read more
Concerning diets, ppl often suggest things like cutting off carbs and sugars and add lean proteins. Can you please suggest specific foods for diets?
I like diets that focus on eating foods with a low glycemic index. Glycemic index is a measure of how much the foods impact your blood sugar. Low Glycemic diets have been associated with decreased risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, depression, and more.
Try to fill up half your plate with green veggies, 1/4 of your plate with lean protein, and 1/4 of your plate with starch. ...Read more

Is a diabetic to eat more of complex carbohydrates and reduce simple carbs...What are foods having complex carbs and will it cotrol PP sugar levels.
In general,: It is the glycemic index (GI) of the food that makes a significant difference in how the food affects PP glucose levels. The higher the GI the faster and the more it will increase blood glucose level. More complex carbohydrates tend to have lower GI than simple carbohydrates. Understanding GI can be very beneficial in controlling diabetes. A wealth of information about GI is available online. ...Read more
I know all processed food is not great for you. But how can you tell by looking at label which is OK or natural, salt or good sugar or carbs?
Healthy Diet!: Google 'food pyramid' and 'DASH' to learn about healthy diets. Generally, try to eat more proteins & soluble fiber and less carbohydrates & fats while maintaining portion control and remaining physically active. Salad dressings can convert a healthy food into an item loaded with fat & salt, so ask for the dressing on the side and dip your fork in. Stay well hydrated, consider regular probiotics. ...Read more

Also, there was no increase in insulin levels, unlike with aspartame, which is important regarding the issue of insulin resistance. Hope that helps. ...Read more
Every time I eat sugary foods/carbs I get dizzy, foggyheaded instantly after I eat and it lasts for hours. Blood sugars are normal. Is this an allergy?
No: You need to stop reading disinformation websites. Now, people tend to overeat greasy and sugary stuff and that's how they get fat. The public therefore comes to believe that this stuff is "bad for you" and people are ready to believe that is causes other problems as well. In fact, acne & most other skill trouble is mostly unrelated to diet, and balding is hereditary. ...Read more
Blood sugar drops below 3.0-4.0 mmol/l every time after eating healthy foods. Only way to keep it at 6 is eat at least 150-200g of carbs. Non-diabetic?
Why keep it at 6?: I have no idea why you want to keep it at 6. A level of 4 (or 72 mg/dl) is perfectly healthy and should not cause any symptoms. Some people will get symptoms below 3.3. It is a bit unusual but not dangerous to have levels that low. No problem eating that much carbs but still avoid sugars and starches; choose complex carbs. Consider seeing an endocrinologist and checking your Insulin levels. ...Read more

I'm a diabetic kitoacidosis. I find it hard to control my sugar level. I'd cut totally on sugar&eat very min carb. I'm on 68units of insulin a day.
Exercise + wt. Loss:
It appears you have a degree of Insulin resistance. If you are overweight, even mild to moderate weight loss will make you more Insulin sensitive and help your diabetes control. Also regular exercise will help increase Insulin sensitivity.
By the way avoiding all refined foods and eating a generous amount of vegetables will help as well. ...Read more
