What is the best resource for a low-fat, low-sugar, low carbohydrate, high protein vegan diet?

What is the best resource for a low-fat, low-sugar, low carbohydrate, high protein vegan diet?

Very limited: Food is a combo of protein, carb, fat. Low sugar-easy. Low fat-easy, low carb-easy, high protein and vegan with all the other restrictions-really hard. Most vegan sources of protein e.G beans, tofu, tempeh, seitan, nuts, seeds, have fair amounts of the other nutrients as well. The more restricted a diet, the greater the chances for imbalance (old insight-hippocrates wrote it). ...Read more

Weight 345 now 331. Heart rate was 70-80's now 50-60's resting. Eating low carb, low fat, low sugar With housework it's 114. Is it safe?

Weight 345 now 331. Heart rate was 70-80's now 50-60's resting. Eating low carb, low fat, low sugar With housework it's 114. Is it safe?

Cautiously: Congratulations on taking a road to better health! I'm surprised your heart rate dropped this much with a 15# weight loss; perhaps you are exercising more/staying active. I'm not worried about that change. I presume you are not on any blood sugar lowering medicine. Your blood sugar should be fine on this diet as long as your daily calorie intake DOES NOT fall below 1000-1200 cal/day. Best wishes:) ...Read more

Most low fat and fat free foods are high in sugar. However I'm told these are better choices when it comes to dairy. Should I eat whole or low fat?

Most low fat and fat free foods are high in sugar. However I'm told these are better choices when it comes to dairy. Should I eat whole or low fat?

Opinions, opinions: I don't think it will matter too much - so a big part of your answer will be which you like better. Also different brands can differ. But, I've heard from nutritionist friends that the range from whole to fat free is much smaller than the public thinks. If you have gall bladder problems or a specific reason to avoid fat, think non-dairy! Otherwise, read labels & buy what you like. ...Read more

Is it okay to eat a lot of protien food but no or low fat and sugar? While bodybuilding and losing fat weight?

Is it okay to eat a lot of protien food but no or low fat and sugar? While bodybuilding and losing fat weight?

Need healthy fat: You can eat a lot of protein, but you still need healthy fats like omega 3's, monounsaturated like avocado and olive oil, etc. You can avoid processed sugar. You still need veggies, and high fiber fruits for their antioxidants and vitamins. You can have 2-3 servings/day of these fruits and that can be your dessert. Stay away from highly processed carbs. ...Read more

Acid reflux nearly daily. Trying to pinpoint why. Could it be yogurt? I eat a low fat, almost zero sugar, plain yogurt every morning prior to symptoms

Acid reflux nearly daily. Trying to pinpoint why. Could it be yogurt? I eat a low fat, almost zero sugar, plain yogurt every morning prior to symptoms

Acid reflux Reflux: Is due to excessive acid PLUS an incompetent sphincter at the lower end of the esophagus. Acidy foods, carbonated beverages, and drinking fluids while eating make it worse.... I do not think yogurt causes it and I do not think it can be "pinpointed"! BTW try sleeping with the head of your bed on blocks (thick books will do) Hope this helps! DR Z ...Read more

Can any doc tell me what's the best milk for you that contains less sugar and is low fat?

Can any doc tell me what's the best milk for you that contains less sugar and is low fat?

See below.: First, fat is not all bad. The type of fat matters. Therefore, no cow's milk at all. Not good for you or necessary for any type of good health. If you must drink another animal's milk, try goat's milk. Best type of milk is milk from nuts such as cashew or almond. Coconut based milk is also good but higher in fat (although the good fat). ...Read more

I live a healthy life style I don't eat sugar or fried food and I eat low fat product but my period delayed for about 7 month should I eat fried food?

I live a healthy life style I don't eat sugar or fried food and I eat low fat product but my period delayed for about 7 month should I eat fried food?

NO, however...: Eating fried foods will not help you. Avoiding sugar and fried foods is great but a low fat diet tends to be high in carbs. You might be lacking healthy essential fatty acids. Include flax or hemp oil and wild salmon to get adequate fats. Being underweight, excessive exercise, thyroid imbalances are common causes of missing periods. Presuming you're not pregnant, I advise seeing a doctor to assess. ...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. What you need to do is choose a balanced diet which has ample amounts of plant based foods which are free of both fats and avoid too much sugar. In addition, get a good amount of proteins by eating fish, nuts & egg. ...Read more

I want to make a sugar-free pie that's also diabetic-friendly. If I use lucuma powder as a sugar swap, would that work from a diabetic standpoint?

I want to make a sugar-free pie that's also diabetic-friendly. If I use lucuma powder as a sugar swap, would that work from a diabetic standpoint?

Lucuma sweetner: There are other ingredients that are an issue with diabetics like the pie shell and the pie substance - is it apples, blue berries or pumpkin? You could make a crustless pumpkin pie which would be less carbohydrate. Some sites do have crust but the slice and the diabeitic has to monitor carbohydrate intake A carbohydrate serving for diabetic is 15 grams and with crust it is usually about 20 gram ...Read more

I have oily skin I'm afraid to eat apple pies which contains high amount of sugar?

I have oily skin I'm afraid to eat apple pies which contains high amount of sugar?

Maybe...or Maybe not: Oily skin is probably mostly due to genetics: some folks are incredibly oily no matter what they eat, while others tend to be very dry despite everything they do. I would always recommend eating a healthy diet (low sugar, mostly plants, minimally-processed food), so I think it's good to avoid pie... But this probably will not affect your oil production or acne risk very much by itself. ...Read more

No, it's good: Although it depends what you mean by "good", low fat milk is a healthier option than vitamin d milk (or whole milk). And it tastes good (in my opinion) as well. ...Read more
