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?

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
