Hi Anup...

Are Fruits included in LCHF diet? Often people says Fruit contains a lot of sugar. Fruit is candy from nature.

Reply

Fruits like small apple. Small qty pomegranate. Berries small qty. In empty stomach.

Shashikantiyengar any particular reason for empty stomach???

Reply

1) As per ayurveda

2) when empty stomach the BS numbers likely to be less. So this small portion will also spike but within the range. If taken with food both will add and spike beyond the limit

So I take somewhere in eve at around 6pm when the BS is around 90-95 in my case. A small apple spikes to around 110-115. Dinner at around 10 or 1030 (cannot help it). So these few hrs get the BS cack to 90-95 a dinner time

you are right.... Shashikantiyengar it is good explanation.... but really speaking.....now days I am scared of fruits... LOL...

In last mango season...I had about 200 KGS of mangos :O and this season only 3 :( Mangos are so tempting..that I could not resist...but then I had them just before morning walk.... so digested them without any spike... :P

Great

My further suggestion

Avoid fruits for some time

Till u get good control

Once achieved the desired goal start small qty

Cleanse the liver first

Sugars will still hamper the recovery

This is my view

I stopped that small apple many months back

Now started small portion of pomegranate three or two times a week

I wanted to have 'Prachiti' :P

Thanks all for the suggestions.I will continue with my current diet.

first get your fasting insulin and fbs to get your IR and bcf. Anup will help you know that once you post lab reports. Why do you want to live with drugs whole your life ? Get better understanding of the diets - lc**, low carb vegan etc. Choose that suits you and the best for you. Live drug free life. There are many here including myself prefer low carb high fat diet.

If your present régime is helping to keep your sugar levels down then why do you want to experiment with other diets.

They also recommend a diet truncated of saturated fat. A balanced diet provides everything the body needs in adequate quantities. The body uses twice as much energy from fat compared to carbohydrate. Some people have a skewed idea of balance if they think 60% carbs is balanced; half of it will be turned to fat in the body. Better to eat natural fat with integral vitamins and minerals.

And we follow it blindly

What a sad state of affairs

I apologise, I was generalising. If the total weight of carbohydrate (as opposed to %) is low enough then the fat would come from body-fat. However, such a high % carbohydrate diet would be severely imbalanced and lead to deficiencies in the longer term.

Vitamin A, which is vital for processing protein in the liver and balances with vitamin D to reduce toxicity, vitamin E and vitamin K2.

WAPF says the conversion of carotenoids to vitamin A is very inefficient.

The article on vitamin E includes wheatgerm oil which is toxic.

The K1 to K2 conversion necessitates a healthy gut, which after twenty years on a vegan diet many aren't unless they've meticulously had their supplements.

Ultimately it's your choice Hidden; it's not for me.

If you are interested to be with minimum drugs through out than follow LCHF Low carb high fat diet.The ratio of carb: protein:fat is 20:20:60.Control carb from all sources to maximum 100 grams. Diabetes is not curable but can be manageable.For good fat ,choose VCO,olive oil, almond,wall nut,flax seed,peanut.Choose good SFA from browsing site.But what I want to suggest you that reduce your carb intake from the menu that you have posted.All the best Thanks

Hi Makarim,

Thanks for the suggestions.. please tell me what is VCO.

Reply

Dear lamwithyou ,VCO It is virgin coconut oil.It is MCT.It metabolises easily in the liver with out suger spike.As we in LCHF also depend upon SFA (saturated Fatty Acid) VCO comes under SFA and quite safe for the body because of medium chain structure of carbon and hydrogen.It has many other benefits also.Please browse for details. Thanks

Reply

Dear Makarim,

Thanks for the suggestion.Even I have been diagnosed with Very high triglycerides however it reduced now from 756 to 91 in 2 months.I saw in internet that SFA will increase the Triglycerides.is that true ?.Please suggest whether I can take SFA.

Reply

There is a difference of opinion on this.But it is true that dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol are two different things. But your high TG can be reduced by reducing carb.Thanks
