Its tough but you can have dahi and dal as lunch and paneer tikka or paneer butter masala with salad as dinner accordingly think of somrthing as breakfast like bhindi fry.,lauki ki sabji.

its tough but give a try.

It is rather difficult to low carb for vegetarians. Restrict gains, legumes, sugar, certain fruits ( mango, fig, grapes, all dried fruits) bakery products. For hi fat you can go for paneer, cheese, cream, butter, almonds, pistachio. Mostly go for vegetables, salad, sprouted mung, coconut in all form. (preferably dry or oil). And the best way is to test after every meal for some period to decide what is suitable for you.

Plz. Specify 60 gms. Consists of how much chapatis & rice in a day?

A large number of Indians are vegetarian, yet the incidence of insulin-resistance is soaring.

No amount of idealism will alter the fact that all carbohydrate is turned to glucose/glycogen in the body.

Reply

People will see the difference for themselves when they measure post-prandial blood glucose.

Keeping protein to about 20g per meal is sensible, in that about half of any excess is turned to glucose with harmful side-products.

The conversion of fat to glucose is minimal.

Where is your 100 g carb in this? This is NCHF (no carb high fat) diet

Reply

Hi sugu you have no idea about hoe to calculate carb.better do some study of foods before commenting.

Reply

I am a north indian I have never used coconut oil.mere smell of it irritates me.is borges virgin olive oil will do or amul butter or white butter or desi ghee..

I prefer almonds over peanuts and as I have read one almond contains 0.3 g carbs accordingly 10 can be consumed.

to make home made dahi.yeah I will have to make extra effort.why you say for home made dahi that too 1 day old.is there any carb load difference.amul dahi 100g contains 4.5g carbs.

rajivkr02: Please try, Virgin Coconut oil will not smell very much. I have started mixing at the time of kneading and also for vegetable preparation and after heating you will find very light smell.

Six almonds make one gram carb. 😊

I am already under weight and do not want to lose weight further. Any suggestions?

Reply

First your sugar level should be in limits.if it is uncontrolled it will result in weight loss.

Reply

I am a pure vegetarian too.

I am using boiled Sprouts 3 times a day with Almonds.

Per the Doctor, the Sprouts provide lot of Protein.

Also, I avoided RICE as much as I could (I was used to) and the sugar level was coming down.

The crave for rice is gone now

Hope this feed back is helpful.

Good luck

Coconut Oil is controversial. You are better off with Olive Oil and you may use healthy nuts instead. While coconut milk is good, I find coconut oil as difficult to digest as hydrogenated oil as in slab margarine or ghee of vegetable origin.

Hi Rajiv, My point is that the total crab in your daily ration seems to be way short of 100 g. This much of nuts and dal, leaves room for some more staple carb stuff like one chappathi or a small helping of rice to make it 100.

I am a pure Vegetarian.

I take

1 cup of Oats with 'well boiled' SPROUTs and Almonds for Breakfast.

1 cup of Coffee (trying to do away with this fully..... not doable now)

For lunch, I take some Boiled Broken Wheat with plenty of green boiled vegetables.

(or Bansi Rava or Raghi)

I have a tea with some Biscuits around 3 PM (with some Papaya).

For dinner, I have 1 1/2 cup of rice with boiled Palaks and some boiled Peanuts.

I make sure that food items dont get stale for me by changing the combination.

My age is 63 and so if I cut down on food may not matter.

I would think that depending upon the age, the intakes would vary.

We have to make sure that we get adequate calories and at the same time spend the calories as well to ensure we stay within limit (Probably through exercise and medication)

Hope this helps.

Good Luck

I have ENDOCRINE PANCREATITUS, and have a low fat tolerance. How do i overcome this with the LCHF diet.

Reply

It is always said that chicken, fish and egg omelette for non-veg LCHF followers. Similarly I thought some noble soul will offer veg. diet followers. If I myself have to search, no problem. For this, MEDFREE need not be attacked by anyone since he has all along been offering invaluable guidance and suggestios. I thank MEDFREE as a eye-opener for LCHF diet.

In fact, I feel Non-veg have limited scope, whereas, when it comes to vegetables, there are n number of options.

One just has to list down the names of the vegetables ( except root vegetables ) & I think, it will work out to more than 10 names at the least. Then, just attach a recipe name to each vegetable ( will work out to at least 2 per vegetable & if you move ahead with kofta; pakora, etc, it might even end up to at least 5). That gives us a minimum of 20 vegetable varieties. I suppose 14 varieties per week should take care of the taste buds.

Keep the grains input to a maximum of 100 gms per day.

Avoid all processed foods, if possible.

If not possible to avoid fruits, go in for papayas, oranges, etc in a limited manner.

Add nuts, cheese, butter,..

Use coconut oil for cooking, if possible.

Use Glucometer heavily, during the initial stages, to see the impact of each food & timing on your sugar levels.

The sky is the limit, provided we don't see the word "Veg Diet" again & again & limit our thinking.

PS : I liked the way you have responded, with an open mind.

Thanks

Can we eat eggs daily throughout all seasons.I am under impression that egg produces heat so should be consumed only in winter and definitely not in summer. Pl guide.

You said it medfree. Since January 11, I have reduced carb intake by 300 grams per day. HBA1C down from 11.6% to 7.9% in ten weeks. Current random PP 185 - 128. Next A1C due around April 19.

Reply

Hba1C of 7.9 is very high. Try reducing carbs as low as possible. It would be best if lower it to 5 - 5.5.

Reply

Agree with you. GeorgeShooter achieved it after being Diabetic for over 17 years.

Reply

With restricted LCHF diet , I have been able to reduce the HBA1C to 5 and it is the same for the last on year. Thanks to medfree and others for providing the knowledge and I use it to my diet and regular testing even after hitting hba1c at 5. Currently I observed that vinegar onions given at restaurants contain sugar and my levels used to spike whenever I had those and later I came to know that they mix small sugar in the vinegar to make it red . I had to stop that . so the purpose is a continuous check is mandatory if you eat anything different.

Thanks for sharing knowledge and specially to medfree. We appreciate your continuous advice and request others to only share the knowledge and not sarcasm.

The study was limited to 27 persons and was carried out for 8 weeks only.

Lipids are in favour of LCHF diet.

Only the point on which the claim is made for increased CHD/CVD is

______________________________________________________________________________

The change in AIx (a measure of overall systemic stiffness) was significantly more favourable with the low-fat diet with a significant and favourable reduction in AIx compared to a nonsignificant increase in the low-carbohydrate

diet group.

trying to keep carb intake under 20gms

Questions

1- is this diet OK or do I have to add or remove anything ?(PS. I hate Vegetables)

2- The butter available in market is safe or do I have to make it at home ?

3- Can I have a cup of Coffee with milk & sugar in the morning, if it doesn't affect the LCHF or intermittent fasting in any way.

My experiments with LCHF has been mixed , but effective.

I am on insulin over and above the usual ineffective medicines that I continue to take out of fear , albeit my doses have been a lot milder now.

For me the sin food is rice, lokwan wheat but oats works wonderfully well & boiled potato doesn't surge sugar, but friend raw potato taken it to stratosphere of 300 plus level.

I have come to my diet plan by religiously monitoring my sugar thrice a day and have even undergone ambulatory continuous sugar reading (it reads every 20 minutes) and management.

My early morning after checking sugar, which often drifts to sub 100, is tea or coffee with milk & water ( generous 50:50) with sugar free + 1 teaspoon sugar & 3/4 biscuits ( digestive or Nutri Choice) if sugar is below 70. if above 100 , then no biscuit.

My breakfast diet is Quaker Masala Oats mixed with a mid size bowl (about 200 Grams) of mixed vegetables consisting primarily or English Carrot ( orange colour), coloured bell peppers ( quarter of red, green & yellow), a fistful of beans or chopped french beans, onion, & ginger shreds fried & then oats also added to it and fried & then cooked with adequate water to have a thick consistency but not sticky. I also add a tablespoon of Nutrela Soya granules to it while frying.

I also check my sugar after breakfast

Lunch is 2 chapati made out of Pillsbury 9 grain atta & mixed vegetables , one dry & one a bit syrupy with 100 gram curd (Amul Pouch) , about 70/80 grams of fried chicken/ 2 piece of fried fish about 130 grams. Non veg only 3 days a week. Rest of the days its normal diet with paneer or rajma or moong dal etc.

Evening snax is just nuts & some sev bhujiya ( Balaji / haldiram 5 rs. packet).

Dinner could be a repeat of lunch in different style.

I take a cheese cube Amul everyday.

I also take Khimasiya dates and a handful of raisin, 3 figs plus about 10 almonds everyday. thrice a week raisins are replaced with khaboos or dried kiwi or dried oranges.

I eat a portion of salad ( lettuce, tomato and paneer (home made) everyday.

My HB1AC that was more than 9 one year back , today is between 6.2 & 7

Key to management of diabetes, diet apart , is REGULAR MONITORING & IF POSSIBLE 3 TIMES A DAY.

ALL CHRONIC PATIENTS ARE REQUESTED TO EXAMINE WITH THEIR PHYSICIAN FOR AMBULATORY MANAGEMENT OF SUGAR.

IT IS AN EYE OPENER.
