Are sugar-free cookies and other sweet snacks okay to eat during the induction phase of the Atkins diet?

This means you can eat approximately six loosely packed cups of salad and two cups of cooked vegetables per day. Remember, carb counts of various vegetables vary, so be sure to check them.

Is eating a banana, apple, & water at 7am followed by 2 hardboiled eggs cut in half with spinach, apple, banana for lunch and dinner safe everyday?

Need more variety: A person whose dietary variety is Banana, Apple, Eggs, and Spinach has only 4 items. This will lead to a deficiency of something. One can search Google for a variety of balanced diets, which are necessary for good health (and to avoid diseases caused by nutritional deficiencies). If he MUST eat only 4 things a day, he must change all 4 things weekly (and pick 1 each: veggie, fruit, nuts, "meat"). ...Read more

Will a meal with added fiber lessen the effects of after meal rise in blood sugar, even if that meal contained high GI foods like pasta or rice?

Will a meal with added fiber lessen the effects of after meal rise in blood sugar, even if that meal contained high GI foods like pasta or rice?

Not likely: What you described is not likely to be an effective strategy to control rise in blood sugar following meals. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Sometimes its a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause (like pregnancy), infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut. ...Read more

What's the difference of overeating sugary/fatty foods and overeating healthy foods with same amoutn of calories?

What's the difference of overeating sugary/fatty foods and overeating healthy foods with same amoutn of calories?

Metabolism: Not all calories are created equal. The body metabolizes high sugar foods, including alcohol, very quickly into fat if these calories are not needed to sustain physical exercise. Most of us do not burn the amount of calories we eat. Unless we are in control of our eating. Do replace your junk food with healthy foods with the same # of calories. See for yourself. I bet you will lose some lbs. ...Read more

On a low carb diet, is whole grain crackers better than eating bread?

In following a low carb diet you don't need to completely avoid grains but keep the amount of grains relatively low; whole gluten-free grains are relatively healthy. ...Read more
