Avatar f tn The part that I struggle with, though, is the grocery list. I go to the store and feel so overwhelmed by choices and if there is even a smidge of corn syrup or MSG in something I put it back. We end up with bare cabinets or unhealthy choices. And of course budget is a major part of this, too. SHARE YOUR SHOPPING LIST! I'd love to see them and compare. And if you want to include what's on the menu with your list, please do! Secrets, tips... whatever. I'm eager to eat them all up.
Avatar m tn Dr. W. I'm sure you've heard the phrase "fat and happy." Well, it's not just folklore. The same carbs that make you fat (and contribute to diabetes and other problems) also make you happy. It's simple science: Carbs allow more of the amino acid L-tryptophan to penetrate your brain. The L-tryptophan triggers your brain to make more serotonin, and the serotonin makes you feel happier. It's as simple as that!
451075 tn?1210258648 s a promise whatever your way of loosing weight. But you can adjust the low-carb from being so low in carb that you loose weight into being just the right amount to maintain the correct weight. I do not agree to that one gets sluggish and tired on low-carbs, actually the reverse is my experience. I get sluggish and tired on high-carbs. I get ALOT more energy when I am on a low carb diet.
Avatar n tn Okay, we're now about 5 days into learning that our daughter is diabetic. So really any info at this time is going to be greatly appreciated. Some of our most immediate concerns revolve around diet. We fully understand how to do the calculations we need, how to check labels, really most of the basics. But we are also trying to find resources that are a little more specific as to snacks that are no-carb, low-carb.
Avatar f tn I any less found some low carb options for things like bread at the grocery store so that I can eat those too. 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.
500923 tn?1210168927 Low carb diet - no bread - pasta - flour - limit whole grains - no sugar natural or artificial. Brown sugar Ok once in a while. Limit fruits high in sugar! Alcohol is sugar too. Limit milk products Maintain a high green veggie diet with lean "good" protein meats - hormone free! Nuts are good and yogart - I know it has milk - but it has many other supporting factors. It a tough change but you will adjust well and won't crave the other stuff after a while.

Avatar n tn The rule of thumb - if the product is obviously high in sugar, forget it and leave it on the grocery store shelf. If the sugar content is low but it still has 15 or more Carbohydrates listed on the Nutritional Panel, it will raise your blood sugar. (How much depends how much you eat of the product and how insulin intolerant the Type 2 person is). Anything under 15 Carbs, is more or less a freebie that won't tend to hurt you as long as you don't eat more than the recommended serving.

Avatar n tn A little while ago i had a nondiabetic doctor recommend a low carbohydrate diet to help keep my blood sugars low and when i mentioned it to my endocrinologist she said that that type of diet puts extra strain on the kidneys and since diabetics are already prone to kidney problems they should avoit it. i would recommend that at your next doctor appointment you ask to be referred to a dietician to go over the proper diet aspects for a diabetic.
Avatar m tn ve been reading up on the subject and it appears that what is recommended is essentially a Mediterranean diet that is more carb restricted in favor of more fish, nuts, olive oil etc. I was wondering if there were any cookbooks with Mediterranean and/or fish recipes that you could recommend from personal experience that might be useful. Thanks J.
988694 tn?1332359479 Hi, low carb diet works wonders for diabetics. I went on a low carb diet, lost approx 100 lbs ! which put my diabetic levels back into normal range. As for thyroid function, I never noticed any changes in my hormone labs, due to low carb diet.
Avatar m tn Barb, I was on low-carb diet for a long time, but recently I found out that for many people like me, eating a low-carb diet may weaken the thyroid or even cause hypothyroid. If you google "low carb diet and low thyroid", you will see that eating "safe" carbs like sweet potatoes or rice will help out your thyroid a lot. http://chriskresser.
