My dear sir may I request you to give your suggestion in a polite manner and not rudely. Please do not quote and give reference of your degrees. We all are experts in one field or the other. I have observed you are very harsh in your posts. What you gain out of it is best known to you.we hon our valuable experience of the members and follow only after due consideration of our intellect only and not go by what every member tells. I am on LCHF diet since 14 February and my sugar levels improved and skin texture also improved and glow started appearing on my face. Medicine dose also reduced what else I need. You do not like LCHF diet this does not mean those who are on LCHF diet are following blindly no it is not the case. I have benifitted from this diet. All super specialist who told me not to have fat have failed to advise me properly. They only preach what they have read in their degree course and believe it to absolutely correct no they are not. If my words have hurt you in any manner am very sorry but let us be more wise. Life is very short let us enjoy it king size even being a diabetic .

Dear med free earlier I used to feel tired.on 25 July I drove my car from Amritsar to hisar which is about 350 Kim's non stop and at the end of journey I did not felt tired. Again on 27 I came back to Amritsar by car an not felt tired. I really benifitted by LCHF .i feel we should share our personal experience and not simply quote our degrees. Degrees are just theory taught in colleges and universities. Where as personal experience is practical and that is more convincing. My wife had a brain tumor the specialists could not diagnose for four years. She was loosing sensation in legs and pain in back bone . She use to fall on one side. These bloody specialist gave her medicines for pain in back bone and pain in legs. They flooded her body with all sorts of pain killers and with that she developed other ailment. They were treating her by error and trial method and we can't open our mouth. Finally we went to an other bra in surgeon he took another MRI nothing was found. To our good luck he ordered contra t MRI and tumour was found. She operated by gama knife surgery and now 65 percent recovered. Many of these doctors have so called quota seats in medical colleges and some how pass out and start practice and ruin the life's of many. I feel my self lucky again that LCHF have come to my rescue. Thanks sir

IN G M diet you are not required to starve.You can eat as much as you require,but only the specific food item earmarked for a day.You can drink water at least 10glass.After 7days you can return to your normal diet.Iwanted to know only if it is advisable in the case of a diabetic.

Seen the comments from all posted. For diabetic patients all Doctors advised eat complex carbonate and use flenty of fruits Soured avoid banana and Mango and jackfruit Ues more vegitables except Beetroot and potato Whatever u eat u may take some limited quantity toavoid starving use lowcalories food like cucumer tomateo and ( Avalakki or manakki which meant from biled paddy) go on walk at least 3o minutes be active.

Generally thereis no difference between ordinary peoples and BS peoples Bs poersons should avoided a mximum of Direct sugar that is sweets made from Ghee and Sugar

But all most o Doctos advised to use limit quantity of Fat items that is Ghee oils and mainly high fat content food because Diabetis patients has also most chances of HBP and heart diseases. Totaly complete examinaton and to take good advise from Specialist Doctors is useful

For fasting for one or two daysgood by using only liquid food and vegitables and fruits. in which for liquid food hot milk may be used without using sugar other wise allliquidfood andfruits and vegitables tobe cold forbody therefore to make body heat use hot milk and do so much active by limited walk and limited excercise. otherwise 7 daysdiet u may loose 5 or 7 kg but the lost wt. is regain as u are starting daily routine food from7 days because the body is like a spring if u start food then it take much food so daily routine food is so good and it may be so limited. Thanks

The high fat of LCHF diet does not approve to everyone. Even peanuts can be taken upto 50 grams only which would satify a bird. For people with lipid problems, high fat does harm.

My last lipid profile was a pass according to that chart. Anyway the Doctor said to see him after a year. So I dont see why I should not follow his advise.

Doctor Bernstein was an MD with remarkable diabetes success. I suggest that one should get and read his book. On chapter 10 page 138 and page 150 he mentions the importance of a restricted Carbohydrate diet. One can eat more items than nuts for a vegetarian.

Are you a Doctor/MBBS. Is that why you call yourself Medfree?

National Institution of Nutrition a premier research institute of ICMR- A Retired Scientist sells funu fiber because he " says people don't know how and when & what quantity of MENTHI TO be taken'' But Even this controls BS to some extent subject to diet restrictions. What is wrong if some body controls this with LCHF

The diet may be useful for weight loss but not for diabetes. There is nothing but mostly carbs in the diet.

There are 3 types of pesons slim body medium body and fat body persons. Generally slim persons whatever they eat it digests completely morethan 90 % therefore . Slim body persons cannot became fat or medium body persons at the extent of 99 %

Medium body persons if they eat restrictly and maintsaining diet system they may became slim until they continue the diet and excercise and other activities. If any activities like excercise diet proper eating is not done by these peoples they beame morefat than what they decreases.

Fat persons their body system is whatever they eat 90 % or more absorbs ther body hence possibility of became slime is difficult. They may consult with Doctorsand dieticians for further treatment.

Further Diabeties HBP,LBP and heart diseass it may came all type of body persons some partmay be heridietary only

Bmi is important for all persons But u may not comparing the athletics WWF Players their body structure maybe so but BMI istoo much partcularly foreign peoples Their height and wt is also high But other conditions they may good so became healthy Thanks

Go to rural areas of India We will find how we can reduce weight.Moderation in food and less carbohydrates are state of affairs there.They are controlling their pangs of thirst and hunger by water only against their reduced supply of food.Personally I feel that by following LCHF,LWMDR,etc we can reduce body wt.Excess wt is caused by excess of carbohydrates and less exersions.Water therapy as well as usage of whole grain fenugreek can reduce excesses of carbohydrates For diabetics extra care is needed for reducing body wt.
