My experience with low carbo, high fat diet


A fortnight or so ago I interacted in this forum with Mr Anup for my numb feet. After interaction with him, I bought meter and daily checked my bs levels. They were in the range of 170 to 190 mg pp.

By his advice to switching to low carbo, high fat diet, I found my bs levels is in the range of 120-125 mg pp regularly. I am now taking 1 chapati/day with lots of green veg,fruits, nuts, curd etc.

I have noticed my bs level is under control even if I miss my dose of metformin 500mg some morning or evening. But bs pp is above 140 mg, if I eat more carbo, inspite of having taken medicine. Also my weight has reduced considerably. Last time 10 days ago it was 75kg reduced from 78kgs approx. Now the bulge in my stomach is gone. Previously I used to tell people that look, my weight has reduced and them telling me that I am mistaken. Now people telling me that I look slimmer. That too when I have started taking high fat diet. I am more energetic, look younger now and numbness in my feet is reduced considerably.

Along with metformin and BP medicine, I daily walk 5-7 kms for the last six months or so.

I am grateful to Mr Anup for his selfless guidance. I also thank owner of this blog for starting this very useful platform and all other blog mates who showed their concern to my problem.

I do not expect things to be perfectly normal in future, but I expect to have better control with low carbo high fat diet. I changed to LCHF diet with very good results. This is for everyone's kind information.

To control BP one can take deoction of dried Pomegranate seeds. Boil a cup of water after getting it boiled add three pinches of either powdered or whole, dried pomegranate seeds keep it for a minute and drink the decoction after filtering. Follow the proceedure twice a day morning and evening. The blocked arteries, veins get cleared and BP will return to normal. Follow this practice for a year. I am doing this since four months and my BP HAS REDUCED from 170/95 to 140/85 with medicines reduced drastically.

Dear Anupji,

Thanks for encouraging me. I have BP tradional meter with me and normally I check once a week. I had noticed with increase in bs, bp too follows.



P.S: I have already started spreading the huge benefits of LCHF.

Dear Anup Sir,

I have serious family heart history. Recently I have started coming to know about increase in bs level by sinking heart feeling with light pain in heart. I checked my bs a few times when I get this feeling and it was around 170-175 mg.



Congrates that you managed your glucose level well, thats the power of technology and selfless service.

Dear Anup ji

I forget to mention my bp is usually 130 /90 with medicine

I have Omron bp monitor model HEN 711 but that show reading once 170/100 and a minute later 120/65 that means not reliable. but through checked at doctor shows 130/90 usually. how to calibrate it. going to doctor and then compare there is not possible as they don't have time.

Omron people also not helping , please suggest

Gondu in reply to devendera

Dear Devenderji,

I am also in North India and calibration is always a problem.. I have a National meter purchased from Dubai around 15 years ago but working o.k.I also faced similar problems like you faced. For this, first of all you have sit on a armed chair in relaxed mood. Start taking the measurements after 5 minutes( at least 3 mts)after repeat for second time and observe the difference. It may be minor one. Regarding your High B.P. u can try this I am regularly doing this and my measurements have dropped from 170/95 to 135/85 . One has to take this at least for one year. It will cleanse all Blood carrying veins and B.P. will return normal. The medicin is: you take three pinches of pomegranate dried seeds or ground seeds, add it to one cup of boiling water and drink it like tea in morning and evening. Your B.P. will normal usually within 6 to eight months. You have to quit SMOKING.

rishad14 in reply to devendera



Dear Mr. Anup, I am 61 year old and for about last one year I am having B.S. but mostly at normal say 103/145. On last 12th April I have done blood test and the lipid profile tests has shown "Total Cholesterol-154, Triglycerides - 225, which is higher by 25." Please tell me what is Triglycerides, is it some thing alarming: Should I take any other precautions for this to bring it to normal? My Liver profile is absolutely normal, In Biochem test Glycosylated Hb (HbA1C) 6.98 says it is only fair control. What is HbA1C?. 2-3 days in week I take Chicken curry for Dinner. Does it make any problem for Cholesterol? I was a chain smoker for about 32-33 years now, but I have reduced and occasionally I do smoking and whisky 2-3 pegs of 30 ml in alternative days. Expecting your advise.

Dear Anupji,

Yes, I will.



I am a diabetic for last 38 years - still on oral hypoglycemics . I walk for 4 kms. / a day and

the sugar level is OK . While I understand the benefit of low carb diet , I am skeptical about

high fat diet as that may invite heart disease . RANO

Dear Medfree Sir,

Thanks. My sugar levels are under control. FBS are 90 to 100. PP are also less than 140 when check. But sometimes when I eat more carbo, my lips start burning and I feel thirsty, have to drink a lot of water and then go to washroom many times.Sugar at those time is around 180 to 200. Also normally my mouth is dry. I take glycomet 500mg (normal) 2 a day along with bp medicine amplopress AT. In winter's bp couldn't be controlled without medicine. Numbness in feet didn't happen again. Liver and Lipid tests were normal. SGPT improved. I will get HbA1c done after 1-2 months. LCHF has no substitute, I would say.

With Regards
