What types of carbs should I eat in the morning for a good breakfast?

What types of carbs should I eat in the morning for a good breakfast?

Not sugar: As long as it is not sugar, there is little difference. The key to a healthy breakfast is to consume some healthy sarurated fat as found in eggs (boiled or poached, but not fried) and cheese. These healthy fats act like the "log on your metabolic fire" and keep your blood sugars stable for hours. Breat milk contains 55% saturated fats and is the perfect food for human babies. ...Read more

Good idea...: Congratulations on living a healthy lifestyle. You could start by seeing your doctor about getting a lipid panel and cardiospecific CRP. If you do not have shortness of breath, chest pain, or light-headedness when you are exercising vigorously, you may do well on a treadmill test. If you do not smoke or use drugs, are sleeping 7-8 hours per night and managing stress, you should do well. Take care. ...Read more

Can you let me know how many carbs per meal is good for a diabetic to eat?

No specific number: The low glycemic diet is what you need. Eat a diet rich in green vegetables and hard fruits. One that is low in animal saturate fats is also good. Eat 80% of each meal in plant and 20% animal. Get protein and good fat like olive oil coconut oil or nuts at each meal. This will "buffer" the effect of any complex carbohydrates or sugars that naturally occur. This balance will negate carb counting. ...Read more

I seriously need to lose weight. Is Atkins a good choice? I tend to eat a lot of carbs so i believe that adds to my weight.

I seriously need to lose weight. Is Atkins a good choice? I tend to eat a lot of carbs so i believe that adds to my weight.

Better choices: We are all genetically unique so there is no single diet perfect for everyone. But most people will lose weight by minimizing high-glycemic foods like grains, sugar & potatoes (see http://www.Glycemicindex.Com/) & avoiding fried/fatty foods. Emphasize vegetables & fruits, beans, organically raised eggs & meats & wild seafood. Dairy, nuts seeds & whole grains can be eaten in moderation.See comment:. ...Read more

Whenever I try to loose weight I cut out carbs but feel weak and sick all the time. How can I eat to loose weight and not feel this way?

Whenever I try to loose weight I cut out carbs but feel weak and sick all the time. How can I eat to loose weight and not feel this way?

To Lose Weight: I commend you for your desire to lose weight. I understand your concern about feeling weak. By thinking that “I am sick all the time”, you are giving power to Carbs in food over yourself, and you are making yourself a victim. Change your thinking to-“I am the Captain over my thoughts, feelings and behaviors about food and weight” See a Nutritionist for Balanced Diet. See a Therapist for stress. ...Read more

I exercise 3 times/week and my fasting blood sugar is 94-107. Why is it this high even when i don't eat carbs or sugar?

I exercise 3 times/week and my fasting blood sugar is 94-107. Why is it this high even when i don't eat carbs or sugar?

It has nothing: To do with eating carbs or sugar. By the way, there is no diet that doesn't have any carbs in it. My guess is that you're overweight and Insulin resistant with prediabetes. Check w/your doctor. ...Read more
