Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

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

On a low carb diet, is whole grain crackers better than eating bread?

On a low carb diet, is whole grain crackers better than eating bread?

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

Why does white bread have a higher GI (glycemic index) than whole grain bread?

Why does white bread have a higher GI (glycemic index) than whole grain bread?

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

Why is whole wheat bread healthier than regular white bread?

Why is whole wheat bread healthier than regular white bread?

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 more

Are low carb diets healthier than diets with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and lean proteins?

Are low carb diets healthier than diets with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and lean proteins?

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 more

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 more

Could consuming low glycemic index sugar lead to diabetes?

Could consuming low glycemic index sugar lead to diabetes?

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

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 more

What disadvantage does white bread and refined sugar cause to our body?

What disadvantage does white bread and refined sugar cause to our body?

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

What type of bread is less likely to cause blood sugar spikes?

What type of bread is less likely to cause blood sugar spikes?

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

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.

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)?

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

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.

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.

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
