If the paleo diet consists of no carbs or grains how is a hypoglycemic person supossed to follow it ??

If the paleo diet consists of no carbs or grains how is a hypoglycemic person supossed to follow it ??

Hypoglycemia: A spike in blood glucose (from eating sugar) is followed by a spike in insulin (which moves sugar from the blood into the cells) but these insulin spikes often "overshoot" resulting in hypoglycemia. So interestingly it is the high sugar levels which CAUSE the sugar crash/hypoglycemia later. Eating paleo will actually improve hypoglycemia AND hyperglycemia giving you steady glucose levels all day ...Read more

Is it better for someone w/pre-diabetes to eat small quantities of food often, or 2 large meals? Goal is to control blood sugar levels.

Is it better for someone w/pre-diabetes to eat small quantities of food often, or 2 large meals?  Goal is to control blood sugar levels.

Eat all in 8 hours: More important than how many meals you eat is if you can eat all your meals within an 8 hour period and fast for 16 hours; doing this even a few days a week will help. Also, what you eat is much more important than the number of meals- it is crucial to eat a low-glycemic diet. See https://authoritynutrition.com/intermittent-fasting-guide/ and http://tinyurl.com/j6t4rlh for great advice. ...Read more

Glucostatic theory and why individuals experience a "crash" after eating a meal high in sugar?

Glucostatic theory and why individuals experience a "crash" after eating a meal high in sugar?

Crash after meal: Most common cause is the Insulin surge that comes to reduce the sugar. In some situations the body overshoots and drops the sugar too much. Checking blood glucose 1 and 2 and 3 hours after a meal is the best way to see if that is happening. However this also explains why it's impossible to lose weight if your Insulin levels are high. It causes the body to hold onto that sugar as fat. ...Read more

Have type 2 diabetes; and have been on a strict ketogenic low carb diet. Ques: is it safe to eat up to 8 eggs a day in terms of ldl?

It does not : Need to be ketogenic in my view. Sugar is the villain and you do need a supplement of vitamin b1 + magnesium + multivitamin. It has recently been shown that diabetics excrete a lot of vitamin b1 in urine so it is important to replace it. ...Read more

Can someone requiring a gluten free diet be on a macrobiotic diet?

Can someone requiring a gluten free diet be on a macrobiotic diet?

Bad idea: The "macrobiotic diet" is almost 60 years old. People died from its1960's form from scurvy. It was hyped in the 1980's by a physician who fooled himself into thinking he'd cured his cancer; despite the internet claims, he is dead of it. The principal 1990's proponent of using the diet against cancer died of cancer just afterwards. If you want a "natural" diet, get with a holistic evidence-based dr. ...Read more

If one were forced to choose, which is better: a 100% vegetable-only diet or a 100% fruit-only diet?

Veggies!: One can make meals out of veggies. Some veggies can be raw, others can be cooked . . . Lots of variety! grains are usually counted as veggies, so rice, corn, etc..., are allowed. Beans have protein (fruits don't really have protein). If one stretches the definition of veggies, he can even include the "fruit veggies" such as tomatoes and cucumbers (things that have seeds are officially fruits). ...Read more

Could eating more carbohydrates increase a hemoglobin A1c test in a non-diabetic?

Could eating more carbohydrates increase a hemoglobin A1c test in a non-diabetic?

Probably not...: Your body has an incredible ability to regulate blood sugar levels and when this ability is intact, excess carbs will be converted and stored as fat, thus should not raise your a1c. Once the ability is diseased, the excess carbs/sugar stay as sugar, thus higher blood sugar in diabetic, and will raise your a1c over time. Moderation is key. Live a well-balance life. Live long. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
