Hello, I moved to USA last week. I m diabetic from last 2 years, managing diabetes well with 'restricted carbs diet' (not following LCHF) I have understood the concept of LCHF and would like to follow LCHF strictly in USA.. Please suggest me how to do it.. Anyone in US following LCHF diet please help.. I m a vegetarian.. I m finding below problems -
1) I will be staying alone in US for at least a year with my wife has to stay back in India. I need to stay with roommates. This means it's difficult to prepare LCHF dishes..
2) I find only 'low fat' products in the stores with all the fats stripped off and adding sugar instead
3) I am not able to find full fat milk as low fat milk is the trend here.. back in India I used to buy full fat unprocessed milk from local doodhwala
4) I am not able to find good cooking oils here.. Like unrefined groundnut oil.. I m finding only refined vegetable oil and canola oil
I really don't want my blood sugars to go high on high carb diet here because I m controlling the BS through diet alone -- no medicines.. If my sugar levels rise I will be in trouble as drugs are very costly here..
