8 doctors agreed:
Are almonds bad for people with high cholesterol because of their high fat content?

No, but...: Almonds are rich in the "right" kind of fat (mono unsaturated fats, such as are in olive oil), and also are a source of vitamin e, magnesium, postassium, and fiber. Studies suggest that replacing other fats in your diet with almonds will lead to a reduction in your LDL cholesterol. As always, your primary care physician is a great source of information on how to manage high cholesterol. ...Read more

Does eating high fat but low carb foods make you lose weight but higher cholesterol levels or is ingested fats also stored as fat in our bodies?

Does eating high fat but low carb foods make you lose weight but higher cholesterol levels or is ingested fats also stored as fat in our bodies?

Fat has calories: Fatty foods are packed with calories, twice the number of carbs or proteins for the same amount of food. So high fat is not going to help you lose weight just because you are avoiding starches and sugars (carbs). Your total calorie intake needs to go down and/or your exercise up to lose weight. Start reading labels with portion size and calorie content as well as the breakdown carb/protein/fats. ...Read more

What are the ways that people convince a mobidly obese person to stop eating high sugar high fat high sodium foods?

Convincing or maybe: The person is convinced but just can't seem to do it. That's more likely. Why that is so is still not clear. Even in some folks who do stick to a low sugar, low fat and low sodium diet don't lose weight. That is in part because they don't reduce total calories to a point where they lose weight. Probably most important of all is getting enough exercise so metabolism can accelerate & so lose weight. ...Read more

Some people experience palps after eating heavy meals that are rich in carb, sugar, fat, high level of MSG, nitrates & sodium (webmd.com). Why could?

Multiple responses: Carbs and sugar effect changes in insulin and blood sugar levels which, when abnormal, can cause palpitations. SMG and sodium causes salt and fluid retention, high blood pressure and heart failure with palpitations. Nitrates cause asthma and allergies in some. I'm not aware of fat causing immediate palpitations. ...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

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.

What food should I eat because I have high cholesterol, working on night shift & what exercise is best for me...

Low carbohydrate: The healthiest way to eat is to limit starches and sugars to what your metabolism needs for fuel (about 100 grams per day). When you eat too many carbs your cholesterol tends to go up. The other important thing to avoid is fried foods because oils are damaged by high heat and they can be toxic to your body. The best exercise is a mix of strength and cardiovascular training at least 3 days per week. ...Read more
