  • Three questions :- 1) What were the CARBS that you gave up eating ??

    2) What are the fats that you are currently eating that you were not eating before ?? 3) What is the percentage breakup of carbs, fats and proteins that you are eating today ??

    Thanks in advance.

  • Well done kkjng, medfree & anup. A golden feather on your cap!! Keep it up & keep reporting. Bye4now.

  • I am greatly thankful to anup, rusticguy & medfree for introducing LCHF which gave me energy as well as good results to fight with diabetes. I feel like starting an award or a Trophy in their name, because one can get rid of diabetes without any medicines.

  • Dear medfree

    You remember correctly, I was a diabetic from past 20 years. Doctors kept on increasing my diabetic medicines dose or treating me with new new medicines. with a result six months ago I startred getting my kidneys damaged with a creatinine level to 2.1. God helped me by introducing to anup on this forum. I changed my life style to LCHF. On 30.8.13 when my blood test was done my creatinine level is 1.7. I am On LCHF diet with little protein intake .

  • Dear medfree,

    What do you suggest me to - 1) reduce my weight. 2) control BS and 3) Improve Kidney functioning.

  • Dear sksdiabetese...

    Adopt LCHF diet pattern in your life, every thing will be alright. Keep a watch on your FBS and PPBS numbers till everything is settled and if you find yourself consistently hitting in 120-140 range for PPBS , reduce your diabetic medicines, if required. 1. Take Hot Veg Soup Non Strained with 30gms full fat milk cream or around 20gm butter ... 1 large cup measuring around 350ml and enjoy this with a 30-50 grams MIXED NUTS ( Almonds, Walnuts & Peanuts, no cashew), OR Paneer Pakodas OR Dal Chillas. 2. Take all dairy products, it should be full fat stuff (so no skimmed stuff), full fat milk curd which is > 1 day old, butter, cheese, clarified butter . 3. No biscuits, cracker, wafers , potatoes chips etc. Being vegetarian it limits your options. 4. If you are not a thyroid patient then add supplement: ALPHA LIPOIC ACID 300mg Capsule OID. (once a day). 5. Add paneer to your menu, and also eggs if you can afford to take, since scientifically eggs are supposed to be a vegetarian diet.6. Restrict to just one chapati/meal. 7. Fruits -- apple and citrus fruits. No JUICES at all. 8. Restrict on carrot, peas and beans, cabbage, cauliflower, shimla mirch and other vegetable having low glycemic index. No potato or potato products at all. 9. DRINK LOTS OF GREEN TEA. IT’S A GOOD DIURETICS. 10. Take vegetarian preparations with salads and of course nice quantity of Chutney made from Coconut and daal etc ... 100gms chutney can be great filler and coconut is source of FAT. Try masala dosa with mashed cauliflower and other vegetables, with peanuts to the masala which adds again good quantity of fat ... mashed cauliflower is a great substitute for potato as far as taste is concerned. 11. Take 100ml milk boiled with turmeric and pepper in morning and the same at night . 12. Every bit of movement and calorie burning counts ... minimum walking for15 minutes after every meal within the house is ok. Never use LIFT. 16. ONE VEGETARIAN DISH : Green Salad comprising 1 pc each of onion, carrot, cucumber, simla mirchi, 1 cup of cabbage. All are cut to small pcs, mix lot of curds to it, also add 2-3 spoons of olive oil. Add 1 cup of cream. In addition as a side plate , have 2 boiled eggs or 1/2 cup of paneer. If required eat any vegetable, not Potato or any thing made of Potatos. 13. Try adding sesame seeds to salad and take nuts upto 100gms.day, take stuff made from coconut. . 14.FOR NON VEGETARIAN : You can take freely Chicken, Meat, Fish, Pork & Eggs ( Whole Egg With Yolk ). 15. AVOID WHEAT, RICE , BREAD & OTHER CEREALS ALTOGATHER OR LIMITING TO 100 gms CARBS. PER DAY. 16. In addition I do take Karela juice, amla juice, 5 mg fenugreek seeds soaked in water for over night before every meal, jamun seeds powder etc.

  • Dear type2

    I am eating all the diet prescribed by Mr. medfree. I am answering your 3 questions one by one.

    1. I have avoided all the foods with high glycemic index including wheat, rice, cereals and potatoes and vegetables grown under the ground.

    2. I have started eating milk products with full fat cream, butter , fresh cream, paneer etc.

    3. Percentage breakup of crabs, fats and proteins I have not calculated. But I mainly depend upon Nuts (including Almonds, Walnuts & peanuts, no cashews ) as it is or soaked in Full fat fresh cream. Omelet made up of eggs or with paneer or with grated salad including, onion, garlic ginger, some carrot, cabbage red & green, shimla mirchy red & green etc. Same salad can be mixed with one day old full fat milk curd also. I do take fish either fried or grilled. i also take small amount of chicken Kebab ( you can take freely Chicken ,fish , pork & meat if your kidney is not damaged ). I take 100 ml. of milk with half spoon of Turmeric powder and a pinch of black pepper preferably at night and some in in the morning also. for oils I have been using Olive oil, Coconut oil, Groundnut oil & pure Desi ghee. Drink Green tea without milk whenever possible. Maximum of one chapati per day that too stuffed with cauliflower and loaded with butter. Some time when I feel hungry I take one piece of bread applying lot of coconut .chutney and slices of cucumber along with green tea. For further clarifications please contact medfree.

    In addition I do take Karela juice, amla juice, 5 mg fenugreek seeds soaked in water for over night before every meal, jamun seeds powder etc.

But for controlling BP, I am taking lot of BP medicines,like 1.amlodipine 5mg in the morning and same at night. 2. Embeta 25xr in n the morning and same at night. 3. Telma H 40 in the evening. I have stopped taking Storwas 10 and Ecospirin75, since I am Taking Milk with turmeric powder and black pepper powder,.My Bp is in the rane of 60-80 ont he lower side and 120-180 on the higher side. Please advice me on my BP medicines. Therefore for proteins I am taking mainly eggs, occasionally fish and daily nuts.

  • Dear medfree

    Due to kidney problem , I used to feel very week & my weight dropped to 63 kg from 73 kg. But after trying LCHF diet, my weight increased to 68 kg & I feel energetic. Due to kidney problem Dr. told me to stop Metformin 500mg and to start Volibose .2mg. After LCHF diet I do not need neither Metformin nor Volibose . I will try to reduce my weight as per your guidance & be energetic at the same time.

  • Sir, I study on net about LCHF diet & your findings. I appreciate your efforts & guidelines provided by you. I will surely change my diet to add FAT, i am already consuming very low Carb. But i am brajvasi so I need some sweet item after dinner and Sweet - lemon / Black Tea. I use sugar free - Aspartame.

  • Please stop taking Aspartame immediately. One of my friends who used to take it regularly died of brain tumor.

  • Thanks for advise, which artificial sweetner is good ?

  • NONE. Splenda (sucralose) is SWEET DDT.

    Aspartame is poison.

  • I was using sugar free which I have stopped after learning the side effects from forum.

  • on the advice of medfree I stopped taking any sweatner.

  • Thanks for the advice, I will keep it in mind.

  • my fb 97 and pb107 living style is changed now in USA. Thank you Aunup
