Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic low carb diet recipes


Avatar n tn And high fat does not neccessarily result in high lipids and cholesterol. In fact the opposite is the case with some low-carb diabetic diets. Doctors often follow the 'book' to cover themselves. One needs to research carefully, and talk to people who are actually succeeding in controlling BG levels within normal range, avoiding hypos, and lowering serum lipids, cholesterol, BP etc. The only group of people I have found so far, that fall into this category, are those following Dr.
Avatar n tn He needs to eat low carb and low fat. Have you checked out the american diabetes association's website? They have lots of recipes there too.

Avatar f tn Avoid tropical fruits such as pineapples, mangoes, guava for they contain high amounts of fructose. For low carb recipes go to the Atkins web site. Be sure your mother regularly sees her doctor and takes her medication as instructed.
Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?

158939 tn?1274918797 If you are diabetic (or pre-diabetic, depending on the doctor) and really stick to a low-carb diet, just what in the heck can you still eat while you are on the RAI diet?? My lean meats, cheeses, low-carb yogurt are all on the "NO" list for RAI. I know I won't be venturing into any restaurants or fast-food places but I'm a little lost on what to stock up on. I can't even have tea and I'm supposed to be on the RAI diet for three weeks!
Avatar n tn If you need RECIPES go to this website, hcgrecipes.blogspot.com. Some great tasting recipes! I made some for my husband and he didn't even know they were low cal.
Avatar n tn I'm not a dietician, but I don't think you should go on a low carb diet, that is a view espoused by some doctors but it is not a widely accepted message. More proteins and fibers would certainly not be a bad thing for your system. Do you think your diet has changed at all between when you had better control and now? Pasta is high in carbs, so if your body over-reacts to carbs (and if that's why you go low), then you may want to find a different cheap meal.
Avatar f tn I learned a lot about how the body works when fasting or on a VLCD (very low Calorie Diet). The center I'm referring to only takes patients with Medical conditions to correct. I was defintely one of those, severe case of RA (Rhuematoid Arthritis), but I also lost 16 lbs. Lost 19 lbs while fasting but gained 3 back during the re-feeding process (something they require before releasing you). AS long as you have 'extra fat cells', you are not 'starving'.
Avatar m tn These diets are low carbohydrate diets. Eating low carb avoids the constant stimulation of insulin. The first few weeks of the diet help in getting rid of insulin resistance. Many people say goodbye to their medications on this diet. Since you are on medication, you MUST talk with your doctor about going on any diet. Read up on the diet first and collect recipes. Don't jump into it without being prepared.
Avatar n tn If you do have Type II this will have to be a lifestyle change and regardless of insurance, diet and carb control is what every doctor will tell a Type II diabetic is the most critical thing to do. We can't take insulin - that's not our problem. We manufacture insulin but our cells don't absorb it. We have to be vigilant on watching our intake so we don't overload the system.
Evillady Look for low carb recipes. Maybe paleo receipes, also many recipes from mediteranean diet may also be suitable.
Avatar n tn //tinyurl.com/atkins-recipes . Replace sugar with artificial sweeteners such as Splenda or Stevia. Also, avoid starchy foods like potatoes, rice, and any foods made with white flour - white bread, crackers, pasta/noodles - as these turn quickly into sugar after eating. Post back if you have further questions.
Avatar f tn I would recommend that you look at diets related to low-carbohydrate and Paleo/Primal ideas. Many people associate the low-carb diet with high cholesterol when the exact opposite is true. Most people who stick to a low-carb diet find that their cholesterol drops to very healthy levels. I can't speak to whether your high cholesterol is due to what you are eating or genetics.
Avatar f tn Beside diet, medication may be required to further reduce levels. The first couple of weeks of a low carb diet may be literally quite painful with hunger pains unlike anything felt before. Additionally, some shakiness may be experienced as the body is use to functioning at super saturated glucose levels. But once he gets through that bumpiness, it pretty clear sailing after that. I wish him well.
Avatar m tn //tinyurl.com/low-carb-recipes You didn't mention your exercise regimen which should be 30-60 minutes daily. The first 20 minutes or so you're burning off excess glucose, then you burn fat for energy. If you're not breaking sweat your exercise program is lackadaisical. If you walk start slowly to warm up then pick up the pace as if you're late to catching your airline flight. Don't stroll like you're window shopping at the mall, try to walk with a purpose.
Avatar m tn Given time with those BG you will develop complications from diabetes. Have you started to eat low carb. your body converts carbs to BG. Exercise is a good way to control BG, it lowers it and a muscle that is toned uses more BG even at rest. See a MD BEFORE you develop complications.
8369322 tn?1397830269 I still dont know what drugs your taking or what your eating... as I said carbs raise BG ALL carbs whole wheat will raise your BG almost as much as plane wheat. I dont know what diet your folowing other than "this site" Well I just looked up "Diabetic Recipes: Super Bowl snacks" http://www.medhelp.org/diabetes/articles/Diabetic-Recipes-Super-Bowl-Snacks/332 this is diabetic freindly food? NUTRITION FACTS PER SERVING: Calories: 232, Total Fat: 3 g (1 g sat.
Avatar f tn Just search the Internet for diabetic recipes as well they give you some really yummy ideas. My new favorite meal to cook myself is steak and chicken fajitas. Everything but the tortilla is on the free food list.
Avatar n tn If you really need those slices of bread for morning toast or whatever try buying those packaged loaves that say Italian Light on them-net carbs is usually ~6 per slice, which is low carb. Pace yourself-eat low carb foods throughout the day-don't stuff your furnace full of carbs all at once and expect it to hold you, plus your blood sugar will zoom higher when you download alot of carbs all at once. Plan ahead for snacks.
Avatar f tn We have to be on a strict carb-controlled diet (no more than about 15g of carbs per meal) and eat 5 small meals a day. I've lost nearly 20 lbs on this diet, another sister about 20 lbs too and another sister (who has time to go to the gym every day) has lost 57lbs. Have you had your blood glucose levels checked to see if you have glucose problems (hypoglycemic, pre-diabetic, diabetic)?? There is a pretty strong correlation between thyroid problems and glucose tolerance problems.
Avatar f tn He teaches about managing blood sugars very well with medications and low carb diet. There is also a group called Type1grit - you can look it up. They have fabulous low carb recipes, and lots of inspirational stories of kids managing sugars well.
175915 tn?1189759422 If you do have a history of kidney problems go for a Low GI diet that is not low carb / high protein, like a diabetic diet. Don't forget to exercise! KathyD - six weeks may not be long enough to get your TSH back in range - be patient, when it is back in range losing weight should be easier. You should be due for a blood test soon, is that right? Best wishes!
Avatar f tn I crave sugar so badly. Do you guys have any recipes for desserts that are diabetic friendly? I've been eating fruit and I know that they say be careful of the sugars in grapes and bananas, but I really like having something that feels like dessert. Anyway, any help is much appreciated! Thanks in advance.
370181 tn?1428180348 I suggest you read other threads on this forum as numerous posts and replies on lifestyle changes regarding proper diabetic nutrition - foods to eat, foods to avoid - proper body weight and exercise have been posted often. You can also look at low/no carb recipes on the Atkins web site for ideas. After reading, post back if you seek further clarification.
Avatar m tn Hi, here is the latest recommendation on low carb diet. I also follow a low carb diet and find it very effective (when I follow it). I do my best to avoid grains, and also eat very little fruit. Mostly non-starchy veges, and meats. http://www.diabetesincontrol.com/articles/diabetes-news/17323-why-a-low-carb-diet-should-be-the-first-approach-in-diabetes-treatment http://www.diabetesincontrol.
