Frankly calculating calories and cab 20% and such examples may not be understood by many like me. Hope some of the worthy members would come to the rescue. waiting for such meaningful posts.

The beauty of LCHF is that you don't have to calculate anything as appetite controls the proportion. Just make sure most of what you eat is natural fats, (not seed oils). Carbohydrate in green vegetables and protein takes care of itself. Have a look through here and tailor things to chime with your cultural foods.

Very many Thanks Mr. Hari kishan. Just two small doubts. Can one take Oatmeal/ Dahlia in breakfast? secondly can one take Roti/ Chapati (2/3 nos) in lieu of Rice during Lunch or Dinner.

Thanks again .



They are rich in Carbs. If you want to take them, ensure that your total intake of Carbs in a day should be 20% only.

Good information those who followed LCHF system


May be lazy and ignorant people like me expect the experts like mr. anup to reconsider charting out the LCHF diet for B/F, lunch and dinner including snacks as consumable by an average Indian . Sorry your website again takes one on a circular ride without reaching anywhere meaningful. Let others be benifited by your remarkable reseaarch work.



Thanks for your sweet talk in the form of strict advice. Sought your suggestions after finding unsatisfactory results from Lifespan and ApolloSugar during last 3 months (45 days each). Adhered to their increased dosage of Insulin and Metformin, followed the diet as advised including regular exercise. Still sugar level remains the same as before (BBF-180, ABF- 260). Convinced that its only through diet one can control the BS level, thought of finding the correct menu for a 60 yr old Indian. And expected some one like mr. anup , who is eminent in LCHF circuit would guide me. The cold rebuke from the hard task master is acceptable though. Thanks Sir!


Pls tell me about Ground Nut Oil because it is cheap compared to others i am allready using 1 tbs of coconut oil in each meal, thanks.


G N oil is not cheap .It cost Rs160/- per kg whereas other oils are between 100 to 120 kg
