What Does Less Than 1 Gram Of Carbs Mean
If been over weight all of my life. Just started eating low carbs, trying to keep my carbs under 60 grams a day with one cheat day a week. Healthy?
Healthy diet: Eat a healthy well-balanced diet, 3 meals without snacks. Caloric restriction if you need to lose weight. There's no magic here. Find an eating plan you can follow the rest of your life, not a short-term diet. Check w/your registered dietitian. Don't try to overly restrict or supplement fat, carbohydrate or protein. Eat each in a sane and balanced amount. ...Read more
If there is 4 calories in 1 gram of carb then dose that mean if I eat 100g of carbs a day I need to burn 400 calories before I start burning fat?
No, life is not...: The answer is no. Life is not black and white, but rather an infinite number of shades of grey (or gray). See, even the spelling of grey (or gray) is not in black and white. Life's biological processes are all happening at the same time, so carbs / proteins / fats are all being metabolized in the body while a person is alive, but the rates or amounts of each type of "fuel" metabolism differ. ...Read more

Usually only one or two visits are sufficient. You can be given a list of foods with their protein level ...Read more

Taking a bit of carbs about 50 or 60 grams a day can cause u to slow down weight loss? And is it good to loose about 1 kg in 6 days? Is it good speed
Actually, 50 to 60: Grams of carbs daily is already pretty low. The problem with going too low on carbs is it makes a diet really hard to stick to and you can feel fatigued/brain fog with too few calories and carbs. A good formula is: calories=12X body weight in lbs; protein=1 gm/lb; carbs=0.9-1.25 gm/lb; fat=the remainder of calories. 1 kg/2 lbs per week is a little fast. Best to go at pace you can maintain!! ...Read more

After eating 75 grams of carbs (french bread) on relatively empty stomach, 1 hour gluc level was 190. 2 hour gluc level was 127. Normal? Pre-Diab?
Probably normal: Hi. That is not a valid test. The OGTT uses 75 g liquid glucose; French bread is not an equivalent. And the OGTT uses serum glucose, not finger stick capillary glucose. You would also heed the fasting glucose, a standard part of an OGTT. Having said all that, your values could easily be normal. If you're worried, see your doc and do the REAL OGTT. Eat healthily and exercise regularly. Good luck. ...Read more

Depends on type: A low carb diet might have 5-10% of calories as carbs. I am not big of counting calories but the biggest problem I have with your question is not all carbs are created equal- mimimize sugars/starches/simple carbs but complex carbs in veggies, beans, nuts and low-glycemic fruits do not need to be avoided.
