Some feel LCHF that i keep talking is some new invention. It is not. LCHF has existed since Paleolithic age. Then comes the modern medical world scare that FAT causes Heart Attack/CVD. Please read above article.
Stay below 100gms CARBS (CHO in above article is carbohydrate) and eat FAT ... CHO + FAT causes CVD and that's what i (along with many diabetics who are on this lifestyle) have been saying .. restrict CARBS to 100gms and eat FAT ... and enjoy life as a diabetic. SAFA is saturated Fat.
FIRST thing to drop from life should be all grains except lentils. When i say "ALL" i mean "ALL". They should be kept reserve for once a week for one meal ... and that day walk extra after the meal starting 40 min after finishing meals with chapati/rice
This is no "NUTRITION" theory taught for degree but pure conclusion from empirical tests "as a real time diabetic" and not someone who watches diabetes from fence and then passes judgments ... the day i eat 1 chapati my levels are 15-20 points higher ... no nutritional course in college or universities will ever teach you this ... they all say STUFF everyone with 60% energy from CARBS and to make it more worse some day PUMP in 20-30% Protein because you should be eating 1gm/kg protein and just eat 10% FAT ... because FAT causes HEART ATTACK (that's what Ancel Keys taught everyone and fooled everyone to produce the most OBESE Nation on earth -- USA) what they forget to tell you as a diabetic is --- EAT PILLS along with it like PEANUTS
So DROP all Grains except lentils as first step ... before you take next step to LCHF lifestyle
PS: I am a diabetic since Feb 2011 with 229/129 (PPBS/FBS) and haven't take any prescription drugs and my A1C were 5.0/6.0/5.2 ... i want it to be always below 5.5max because 5.7 and above things start getting bad. ...
