Ketogenic diet foods to avoid

Common Questions and Answers about Ketogenic diet foods to avoid


Avatar n tn You still haven't said what you're eating, and you say above you're not eating carbs and then that you're eating carbs. The carbs to avoid are the simple carbs, the carbs to eat are the complex carbs, especially vegetables. But let's say when you increased protein you started eating a lot of dairy -- that could explain the gas. So could anything you're either allergic to or intolerant to. Let's say you're eating a lot of peanuts -- they can also cause gas in some people.
Avatar f tn With her already-limited communication skills (she is nonverbal), I think it would be preferable to try something like the ketogenic diet versus adding yet another medication that might be further sedating, thus robbing her of motivation to communicate at all.
Avatar n tn Hi, low carb / ketogenic diet. I don't eat any grains, fruit, starchy vegetables, or anything with added sugars. I eat salad and green vetables, nuts (in moderation), meats, eggs, cheese, butter, cream. Look up Bernstein diabetes university on utube. lots of great information.
Tbd Similar to diabetes86, I would recommend a low carb diet. However, when trying to lose weight one should not go overboard on the fat (if you eat too much fat you are less likely to lose it). I recommend low carb (20 - 50 g a day), moderate protein (approx. 0.8 - 1 g / kg of body weight), and the fat that comes naturally with the selected foods; enough that you are not hungry.
1741471 tn?1407162630 Omega 3s and Vitamins key for a better brain health According to Fernando Gómez-Pinilla, PhD, a neurobiologist at UCLA who studies the impact of certain foods on the brain, the key is to avoid fried foods and add more omega 3 fatty acids to your diet. Omega 3s are essential for normal brain functioning because they are our primary source of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), the most abundant omega 3 fatty acid found in the cell membranes of brain cells.
Avatar f tn While I agree that adequate amounts of fat are necessary for a healthy diet, I feel that they, like most other foods need to be eaten in moderation. Aiming for a low glycemic diet will probably serve you better... low glycemic foods are those that don't spike the blood sugar. Eating foods that spike the blood sugar causes insulin levels to spike, as well and if those foods aren't used quickly for energy, they will be stored as fat.
Tbd Eat low carb / ketogenic diet. Avoid or strictly sugars, grains, starchy vegetables, and sweet fruits. Use a blood glucose meter to determine the effect of your diet on your blood sugar. This will help you fine tune what foods do and don't affect your blood sugars, and to what degree.
Avatar m tn So far the ONLY thing that has worked for me is a ketogenic diet. I eat real foods, a good source of protein and fat and I only get my carbs from vegetables and very limited fruits (berries). I have tried counting calories, weight watchers and all sorts of advertised diets/shakes/programs and nothing worked for me.
Avatar m tn Under my arms it's worse because it's difficult to put a shirt on, jacket, brush hair, scratch head, stretch, reach, all that stuff. I have to wear under shirts to avoid staining the shirt and I have to stain up the under shirt. Embarrassing when it comes time to do laundry as well. But I'm also researching some alternatives. I'm thinking maybe some herbal medicine. Perhaps seeking a healer of some sort? If they exist around me.
Avatar n tn Hi, Would be best to get a blood sugar meter and to use it to determine what foods do and don't affect your blood sugars. To do this, test about 90 minutes to 2 hours after eating and see what your blood sugars are. Target is < 120, though ideally < 100. Low carb is used by many to help control blood sugar levels. Whether you can eat 50 g of carbs per day, or more, or less will depend on your sugar levels. When eating low carb, most of your carbs will come from non-starchy vegetables.
Avatar m tn His mission is to radically shift those odds, by giving people the information they need to avoid being one of the unlucky ones destined to die without your mental faculties intact. Alzheimer's Is Directly Related to Elevated Blood Sugar Levels A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in August 2013 demonstrates that even mild elevation of blood sugar—a level of around 105 or 110—was already dramatically associated with an elevated risk for becoming demented.

Avatar f tn To add to Jackies comment, I went off of all sugar and feel better than before. I had developed type 2 diabetes from the lyme along with low thyroid and other stuff. Taking sugar out of my diet worked really well and now anything sweet makes me sicker.
Avatar m tn Look into ketogenic diets, which may help reverse many cognitive and neurodegenerative conditions, like dementia, alzheimer's, parkinson's, memory loss etc Coconut oil, needs no conversion, does not require insulin response and it's metabolized in the liver for fast energy and also can cross the blood - brain barrier to supply the best form of fuel to the brain! --Optimize your diet. Include some fruit, limited whole grains, (avoid wheat and dairy) plenty of organic fresh vegetables.
Avatar f tn Last year when this happened I started drinking smoothies for breakfast, and stopped when I started the Candida diet. Now 2 weeks ago I decided to try the ketogenic diet, which is lots of dairy. So can dairy give you these symptoms if I have some sort of sensitivity? Would an allergy test not pick it up if maybe I'm allergic to some ridiculous random enzyme in dairy? Or should I be worried again that something else may be wrong?
3060903 tn?1398568723 Compelling research shows that this type of diet, also referred to as a ketogenic diet, is an effective prevention and even treatment strategy for cancer. Intermittent fasting is another powerful key that will help you transition your body from obtaining the majority of its fuel from glucose stored as glycogen in your muscles and liver, to the fat stored in your tissues. This is one of the most effective ways I know of to burn off excess body fat and eliminate sugar cravings.
Avatar f tn I currently eat only organic whole foods and avoid soy, dairy and animal products. Our primary diet is fruit, vegetables, seeds, and nuts.
Avatar f tn To start here, I am dx'd (Dx'd in like 2 months, so I am still in denial about the whole thing). I know very little about MS. I have been dx'd for a couple of months. I am not on any drugs yet, however my neuro will push them on me next appointment. I am taking: Omega Oils Cod Liver Oil Multi Vitamin Extra Vitamin D Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalmin form) Digestive Enzynes My Diet it based around Atkins. No sugar, very low carbs, and lots of fat (even saturated - coconut oil is my fave).
Avatar f tn I had to go extreme with my diet and exersise to cut the last 30Lbs of fat on my body. I switched to a Ketogenic diet. This is an absolute no carb diet. Only meat, fats, and some cheese. Not even vegitables as they contain trace amounts of carbs. No fruit either. In two weeks your body will go into a state of ketosis. This means that because your body has no carbs that the Liver prouduces Ketones. Ketones love to use body fat for fuel.
Avatar n tn My intention was just to give an idea how to plan a controlled diet but not follow exactly that schedule.Facts are Facts!They come up with such plans depending upon controlled studies as management of DM is advancing.From a set up like mine where carbohydrates are main staple food,still wonder how efficiently people manage BG without loosing the tang of cuisine.It happens when we correlate all available information.
Avatar n tn I've listened to hundreds of podcasts concerning low carb high fat ketogenic diets and completely changed my life and diet accordingly. I've essentially gone to med school and now know more about diabetes than the doctor that diagnosed me. You don't need 30-60 minutes a day of exercise but rather intense exercise of muscles to failure such as push-ups or one leg squats. Interval training is good. It increases sensitivity of muscles to insulin. Search the internet fir dr Ted Naiman in Seattle.
172023 tn?1334675884 I will use a suppository then .I also try to eat foods that are conducive to keeping things moving and I have been eating an Activia yogurt once a day ..I like to take a nice leisurely walk in the evenings after supper so I count that as my exercise .This is a good subject to address as this is a fact of life for many CP patients .Take care Peek !
Avatar m tn What you say is technically true, but when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or too much insulin but your body has become resistant to it, the glucose stays attached to the red corpuscles and does not get pushed to the body cells that need the energy. Our western diet exposes us to too much temptation with lots of foods that we overload our bodies. Having said that even with no overload does not mean that you won't get diabetes, because it can be genetic.
Avatar f tn Most standards are not 100% So I am not supposed to have any added hormones, I have been told not to have dairy, meat, sugar, processed foods etc.. there isnt really much left to eat and its very hard to do. Processed foods I have had no problem giving up and have not had any in years. Dairy is hard because I love milk, red meat is hard because I love it. My over all health is not good and I eat very healthy.
Avatar f tn One of the only things that gave me a little relief was a Ketogenic diet. This type of diet is high in fat, moderate protein an low to no carbohydrates. I recently had an improvement in my finances and decided to find out what was going on with my body. I was referred to an internist who's philosophy was to treat the body as a whole instead of just managing symptoms with "bandaids". I thought this was a good place to start.
Avatar n tn I have tested my glucose and didn't find any relationship between headache and glucose level. To avoid headaches, I usualy avoid eat sugar, wheat flour and fruits. I've tested many things to reduce my intolerance. The most efective are: Carbohydrate blocker : suplement made of white bean Carbohydrate blocker : acarbose Antidepressive : nortriptilyne I'd like to know the results of testing DHEA. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I can't seem to stick to a diet. I diet for a few days and then I gorge coz I feel really hungry and then go back to the diet. How am I going to lose weight?
Avatar n tn I realize you are not here to diagnose and assure you I am working with very good doctors who are very helpful, I am just concerned that I seem to getting worse even with B12 shots, good diet, yoga and frequent doctors' visits. My symptoms seem to wax and wane, one day the stiffness will be so bad I can barely walk and the next day just residual stiffness. Thank you for any thoughts.
Avatar m tn Glad you found it helpful. As I said liver disease caused by alcohol or other means is relatively easy to diagnose especially when it is advanced. Ammonia buildup in the blood can be detected by a simple blood test. If you are still concerned see a doctor as they are the only one capable of ordering the tests and diagnosing if you have health issues caused by abusing alcohol. Of course alcohol has damaged your liver. Alcohol is toxic to the liver.
Avatar f tn My latest exploration is with a Ketogenic diet, basically it is a high saturated fat, low carb diet. I have associated muscle and joint pain and stiffness that subside with the onset of this diet. It is also used to help treat epilepsy, so it make sense that it could have similar effects as something like Zonegran which hits the temporal lobe.
