Zero Carb Zero Fat Zero Sugar Foods
Being diagnosed as a type II diabetic, I am curious to know what foods I should eat. What should I look out for in food labels? Sugar? Carbs? Fats?
What negative health complication could arise when doing protein shake diet, high protein, zero carb and zero fat, for a short period (10 days)?
Putting a lot of: Stress on your kidneys. Good fats help maintain skin, brain health, digestion, and absorption of vital nutrients from food, vegetables, fruits, and enzymes. So not having that for 10 days seems rather severe. Also, there is thought that a no fat diet tends to make people have less satiety and feel hungry more. What type of protein, vegetable or meat?

In fact, acne & most other skill trouble is mostly unrelated to diet, and balding is hereditary. ...Read more
