New Blog

Hello everyone,

I have started a blog where I will be sharing low carb and sugar free recipes that are actually healthy. Most recipes will be the ones I have created myself and I will also be sharing recipes that I find inspiring. I wish to create a platform that compiles all diabetic friendly recipes at one place.

All recipes on my blog will be 100 % vegetarian, made from ingredients easily available in India and totally free from harmful ingredients.

Thank you Mr. Anup for your valuable suggestion. Yes, I have purchased my own domain and I am working on the look of the website. Hosting on tumblr is a temporary measure.

I did not know about the lauki kheer recipe on dlife. This kheer was something I tried making on my own and it turned out good :)

I have a repertoire of low carb recipes that I shall be posting on the site. What I want is a one stop platform with recipes that are actually diabetic friendly and tried and tested by a diabetic herself as opposed to recipes that claim to be diabetic friendly and are laden with carbs and other harmful stuff.

I have been eating lauki kheer since my childhood but with regular milk. And now it's a regular item for me.

Yes, i have replaced the regular milk with coconut milk so that the carb content is refuced drastically.

I agree with you Mr. Anup. You are so knowledgeable and well versed in this area. I have a lot to learn from you :)

I sure hope they don't. This was my biggest apprehension before posting the links here.

Yes, I have seen how many people including ladies have been abused here for following LCHF. I strongly disagree with it. As you said, it is essential to keep an open mind. Both LWDMR and LCHF have worked well for me. If one diet is working well for someone, it doesn't mean the other diet is a fad or a hoax.

Ever since I took control of my health and started cooking my own food, it is passion that has driven me. Learning is a continuous process. You share what you have learned and learn a thing or two from others as well!!

A request Mr. Anup. I would love your feedback on the recipes that I post on the blog. If you could do that, it would be great :)

This is something where it is advisable to be selfish :) It is wonderful to imagine a world where people are not falling prey to to this drug and doctor industry and are taking control of their own health.

Through my website, I will not only share recipes but try to generate as much awareness in people as I can. What is necessary is to change the mindset of people and make them believe that diet is important for controlling their condition and it can be managed far better if only they are willing to alter their diet.

I also wish more and more people come up to establish forums to spread awareness. As for ADA, I am sure there are many people like you and me who are willing to dispel the myths and lies propagated by them. I once saw the video of a lady advocating LCHF and her first sentence was: "want to reverse diabetes? Completely ignore what ADA says".

Congratulations for your forum appearing in top 20!! It is a big achievement and it shows how more and more people are willing to ditch the medicine way :)

Yes, this is the video I had watched. ADA is a threat to the well being of people following their recommendations. The earlier people raelise this, the better!!

Every word you said rings true.

I strongly believe that cure and health is in the hands of a person himself. After struggling for 3 months with 350+ BS levels, I found a cure in diet only and now I have learned to ignore what so called diabetes specialists and associations say. I would like to add that I am on a mix of LCHF and LWDMR and it is working well for me. My medication has reduced to half of what I was taking before and I hope to reduce/eliminate it.

My mother's diabetes specialist tells her to eat Marie Biscuits and white rice everyday!!

I wish more people get aware and stop listening to these 'specialists' and take their well-being and health in their own hands.

Yes, you really were lucky. When I was diagnosed 3 years ago, the doctor I was seeing for my thyroid disorder straightaway prescribed Metformin glimepride and Pioglitazone. He did not even ask me whether I had any family history of the disease, which I did. The diet chart he gave me prescribed 225 grams of carbs a day, 25 grams of fat and 100 grams of protein. I wonder where I would be if I had actually followed that diet chart.

You are right. No point discussing diet and diabetes with these 'specialists'. Baba Ramdev sure seems to be affecting their business and that is why they are cursing him. Sadly, people who are following the recommendations of these 'specialists' religiously will only realize this when it is too late.

We can only hope to generate more awareness among people regarding diabetes and the importance of diet to manage it.

Really? I did not know that. The farther one stays away from these diet charts, the better.

Yes, it is hypothyroidism and I am currently on 25 mcg of thyrox. I will surely try Ashvagandha. Ayurvedic/herbal over synthetic anyday!! I already take at least 1TBSP of VCO per day. Will find a way to increase it further.

Can you please tell me the brand of Ashwagandha tablets your wife uses?

As far as Soya is concerned, I never get tired of telling people that it is the biggest marketing fraud of all time. And a doctor recommending Soya to a thyroid patient? It is unbelievable. It is harmful in all its forms, especially for a person suffering from a thyroid disorder and it should never be consumed. People are blindly adding it to their diets thinking it is healthy, believing the companies that are marketing it.

It is truly sad that people choose to believe the companies that are marketing the product and don't do their own research and diligence. But the good thing is many people are calling the bluff of these companies now. Sometime in future, I am also planning to file PILs against the misleading advertising by these companies, branding their products as health foods when in fact they are the opposite of healthy!

I got Himalaya Herbals Ashvagandha capsules today. Hope I bebefit from them :)

That is great. Always good to hear more and more success stories of people going off meds :)

Yes, I am a lawyer. Though I am currently working in accounting and auditing but I am entitled to present my case in a court of law. It has been a long standing desire of mine to expose all these so called health experts and health food companies.

That is a great idea Mr. Anup. Now we have documented proof of how low carb diets work for diabetics and how a high carb diet affects them. If the courts come down hard on these experts and companies, more people will realise how they have been fooling people.

Well, some people just cannot get over the belief that what they have been eating is the perfect diet and everything else is FAD.

I deal with this every day. At work, when I strictly refuse to eat sweets or anything else that does not fit into my diet plan, all I get to hear is "itni kam umar mein ye haal hai toh aage kya hoga. Hamne toh khoob khaya hai tumhari umar mein". I get surprised not because of what they say, but because of what they believe. Everyone who says this to me is suffering from obesity/arthritis, blood pressure, diabetes and cholestrol. They are heavily dependent on drugs. Still they believe that what they are eating is good for them. I see all these people devouring sweets, biscuits, samosas, pastries and what not almost every day. I so wish they would change their mindset.

Younger generation is quick to adapt to changes. I have altered my diet completely and as you said, I am never going back to the so called balanced diet ever again.

The problem with most elderly or middle aged people is that they do not want to accept any change. Yes, they have years of experience but I feel they should be open to changes also and not be so rigid in their mindset and views.

It is great to hear that Mr. Anup, but right now I guess you are one of those few people who want to change with changing times. Rest are too rigid to change.

Anyway, it is really good to hear of such a good equation between you and your son. I second your views. It should always be quality over quantity. This positive approach to keep learning and re-inventing yourself definitely helped you scale the success ladder :)

:) :) And that is why you are open-minded and ready to adapt to changes.

Parenting well done, both by your father and now you.
