Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?
Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level. Do note that too much carb may not be good for your health. I don't believe extreme diet does anyone any good. Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more
It depends: Whichever one has the least amount of carbs is probably best; if you choose bread then choose whole grain bread. Consider whole grain crackers that also have seeds as those will be lower in carbs (such as mary's gone crackers). 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
No: Unsalted carbohydrates are still carbohydrates, unfortunately.Get a more detailed answer ›
Definition: The Glycemic Index (GI) is a relative ranking of carbohydrate in foods according to how they affect blood glucose levels. Carbohydrates with a low GI value (55 or less) are more slowly digested, absorbed and metabolized and cause a lower and slower rise in blood glucose and, therefore insulin levels.? Relative to your question, which bread has more fiber? Ref: http://www.glycemicindex.com/ ...Read more
No one knows: The "received wisdom" is that whole-grain bread is healthier than the very processed stuff. It's tastier and more fun to eat. It does change the composition of stool in the intestine and thus the bacterial products. If you believed every obscure-journal claim, you'd be reading uncritically -- and hard-and-clear results -- especially animal studies -- are conspicuously absent. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes, yes &: Not nearly as healthy as you would think. There are other grains that are healthier, like rye for example , and others that are a lot better than whole wheat. If your choices were whole wheat or white i'd pick the whole wheat, but just about only then. ...Read more
Not necessarily: There is no single diet that is best for everyone. I believe it is wise to minimize sugars and simple starches, but i believe a diet with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and low-fat proteins is healthier than a strict low carb diet (which is relatively high in fat and protein). See http://drrandybaker.Com/2013/01/20/diet-and-health/ for my essay on the pros and cons of various diets. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Are not sugar, but: study https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/1237253, https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/6679417 & do some research on your own. I believe that some use of the mainstream substitute sweeteners are not as harmful as real sugar; at least the substitute ones had to pass up to a year of testing. Yet no one really knows, hard science trials too complex, Hi-$, time consuming, thus none done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can be tricky: Glycemic index refers to the impact that food has on the blood sugar level. Some foods are absorbed very rapidly and raise the blood sugar rapidly (sugar, simple carbohydrates) while others have very low impact on blood sugar and thus a low glycemic index (meats, fat). There are some "sugars" promoted as low glycemic index, but this almost is contradictory. Moderation is the key with diabetes risk. ...Read more
Beans/poultry/fish: The best proteins are plant sources such as beans/legumes/lentils/soy/tempeh, seeds and nuts. Followed by fish, eggs/ poultry (the white part and no skin), then wild game, lamb/veal/seafood, followed by beef and pork. Eat frequently-every 3 hours with a good fat such as olive oil, avocados or nuts to help with feeling full. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Low blood sugar- extreme weakness;shakes;fits of rage. Only full meals w/ bread, meat & lots of sugar begin to make me feel better. Been ill for years & >30 doctors - no help. No diagnosis. What to do?
Complex problems : When a person has a set of serious symptoms that have persistently defied diagnosis, sometimes the best approach is a logical, team-based process. For example, a primary care doctor working closely with a neurologist, endocrinologist, nutritionist and psychiatrist (to help manage symptoms) might be the best way to go. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
White bread n' sugar: White bread and sugar are quickly digested by the body. Both can cause spikes in blood glucose and a resulting insulin surge, leading to fat deposition, weight gain, increased lipid levels, oxidative stress and the so-called "metabolic syndrome". Such foods should form only a small part of one's daily caloric intake, if even any part at all. ...Read more
Nutrition #: I have heard it said that regular supermarket white bread when eaten turns itself into a high amount of sugar. Is this true?
Whole Grain: Compared to white flour, whole grains take longer for the stomach & intestines to break down into sugar, and so the sugar is absorbed more gradually into the blood stream and is less likely to cause a spike. A 15 gram whole grain slice will put just as much sugar into the blood as a 15 gm slice of white bread, but spread out over a longer period of time, and so requires lower Insulin levels. ...Read more
3 months ago I started gym and diet (no sugar,fats,white bread) I was 100 kg and now 86.8kg
Is that too much?
Is there anything to worry about?
That's about 30 -: -pounds/month. Is a little much. But if U get proper nutrition & rest it is OK. But U should have a target weight that U want & then slow down as U approach it. Then figure out what U need 2 do 2 stay there. Also if U R doing weigh training, B sure U R not going so fast that U lose muscle. Exchanging muscle 4 fat, U should not lose so fast. Muscle is heavier than fat. ...Read more
Seemingly ironic but are some foods such as breads and/or potatoes more likely to give you an insulin spike versus straight sugar (like a soda)?
It varies: Calorie for calorie, soda with high fructose corn syrup will increase your sugar and insulin levels more than pasta. However, eating 500 calories of pasta could spike your glucose and insulin levels more than 50 calories of soda. So lots of pasta can have more effect than a little soda. It is related to the glycemic index of the food and the calories consumed. www.glycemicindex.com has numbers. ...Read more
Does sliced bread with high fructose corn syrup, have a large, unhealthy amount, or a trivial amount?Bread has very little sugar, curious if bad for you.
Bread: Is unhealthy on many levels. High fructose corn syrup is, obviously, not great but the grains used to make bread cause a variety of other issues. Bread made from wheat has been shown to raise blood sugar and to cause inflammation. Wheat gets broken down into sugar (even if there is no sugar added). Wheat also contains gluten, which is addictive and inflammatory. Books: grain brain / wheat belly. ...Read more

I have read that even whole wheat bread and pasta is not good for your body , whole wheat also quickly turns to sugar and fat, only good is fiber, true?
Whole wheat &pasta: All carbohydrate turn to glucose in your body, but that does not mean it is not good for you or is harmful.Whole what bread is helthier then white bread as it has fiber which is good for your bowels and has less calories.For pastas it depends what it is made of and that gets converted to glucose as well.Our body needs carbohydrates, and whole grains are better then refined, it may be bread or pasta. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If sugar causes cancer and carbohydrate convert to sugar , then what should we eat and feed our kids?alternatives to bread and cereal?
Fake information: Sugar (glucose) is the OBLIGATRY energy source used by the brain and heart. Remove it from the human body and they are dead. It does not cause cancer. Carbohydrates are a good nutritional source for anyone at any age, when used as part of balanced nutrition. Anything, including water can be toxic to humans when used in excess.

What things other than rice, potato, bread, fat, sugar should one avoid in order to lose weight? Is wheat flour bad too? What about milk and butter?
Lose weight: 1: Exercise is a good start. Diet may be even better. 2: Go online to see the many articles regarding food that is good for yo and food that is not.

I've read in many places that refined sugars, breads and other like products can cause acne? Is this true? Can a healthy diet improve acne? Exercise?
It's junk: You've discovered that there's a huge fantasy literature on "this food is good / bad for this / that disease." people write their subscientific observations and decide that somebody saying there's no effect must be ignorant / unspiritual. The real controlled studies show basically zero diet effect on acne. Good diet & fitness are benenficial for their own sake and general health. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with hypoglycemia (so I think) my insulin level is 18. I was never given a meal plan or sent to a dietitian and would like to know what foods I can eat please. I have been staying away from all sugar, white bread, pasta. ?
Good luck to you: If you have self-diagnosed "hypoglycemia" based on "pop" claims, I hope that you will (1) get a proper screen for real diabetes; (2) reduce caffeine and tobacco if applicable; (3) look at and deal if possible with sources of chronic dysfunctional stress; (4) educate yourself on the real science of "idiopathic postprandial syndrome"; (5) ignore a "spot" insulin level; (6) diet isn't key. ...Read more
