Diabetes Basics: Fat & Diabetes by admin | Jun 25, 2021 | Uncategorized | 16 comments Diabetics need to watch their LDL (bad cholesterol) and make sure that their HDL (bad cholesterol) isn’t too high. 16 Comments SizzlechestXXX on January 30, 2011 at 5:26 pm Saturated fat does raise LDLs, but it also raises HDLs. Large LDLs are okay, but small, dense LDLs are bad. Saturated fat improves the ratio of good vs. bad LDLs. Meanwhile, carbohydrates increase triglycerides. Get a VAP cholesterol test to find out your ratio. Reply aleterra on June 15, 2011 at 12:35 pm geez, the saturated fat craze. Watch FAT HEAD, you will find out that saturated fat is a healthy thing. Mother nature isn't stupid. Reply Ua490 on November 12, 2011 at 4:19 pm THIS IS MAINLY ABOUT TYPE 2 DIABETES!!! differentiate between type 1 and 2!!! These people have it because they're fat!!! They fat blocks the insulin working!!! I have it because my pancreas (gland inside the body) stopped producing insulin!! None of this was my fault!! Reply Peter on February 23, 2012 at 7:31 pm @Ua490 leave that up to the people who think they are fat/skinny to utilize this information to help make them the way they want to be Reply Wendy Karcher on March 29, 2012 at 12:45 pm I avoid what I call the white foods. Potatoes, rice, bread, milk, ice cream — and the associated. I walk an hour a day in the morning as that helps your fat burning machine at night 🙂 The more fresh vegetables and fruit that you eat — the more beneficial to your health. Avoid stress and all sugary drinks. I drink nothing but teas and pure spring water. I also take a magnesium supplement. Drink plenty of water everyday. Reply Wendy Karcher on March 29, 2012 at 12:45 pm I stay away from red meats and pork. I eat chicken and fresh salmon and few other types of fish.. I use extra virgin (cold pressed) olive oil when needed. Reply Masteroftrancegirl on August 21, 2012 at 10:54 pm I cook my FOUR eggs in coconut oil every morning. I've gone from 176 to 141 pounds. I eat every 8 hours. I agree with you, aleterra. The notion that fats like saturated animal fat and coconut oil cause coronary artery disease is bogus. It was built on shaky science that either disproved the lipid hypothesis, or was null. I hate Ancel Keys, Jeremiah Stamler, George McGovern, and all of the other clowns. They've caused a lot of harm to people with diabetes and metabolic issues. Reply Masteroftrancegirl on August 21, 2012 at 11:00 pm If you want help controlling your glucose levels and cutting down on the dosage of the drug you're taking, join me on the lowcarber forum. The advice the ADA is giving is outdated and dangerous. If you're unsure about this (which I understand), read Gary Taubes' book 'Why we get fat,' and if you want more in-depth information, read Good Calories Bad Calories. I would also recommend 'Fat Head,' which is available on hulu. Btw, my screen name on the forum is "brinethery." Reply Ima Skeptic on August 2, 2013 at 4:00 pm Trans-fats will LOWER your "good" HDL cholesterol. Real butter will INCREASE your "good" HDL cholesterol. Too many refined carbohydrates like sugar & flour will increase your triglycerides (bad). Keep your triglycerides LOW and your "good" HDL cholesterol as high as possible. Using "unrefined" organic virgin coconut oil for cooking is a great idea. It can triple your "good" HDL cholesterol. (but it could take 3 months to a year to triple).

So much wrong information here. There's no link between dietary cholesterol and cholesterol in your blood. Reply mef1975 on November 19, 2016 at 3:18 pm Is this not outdated information that's been proven false? Reply Nepthu on June 17, 2017 at 5:56 pm The guy who loved vegetables didn't look like it. His weight was out of control. Reply Travis Statham on April 10, 2020 at 6:43 am This youtube description gave me cancer. Reply Galahad Threepwood on April 10, 2020 at 7:30 am What an embarrassment bodies like the ADA are. I supposed there's no one with the integrity to admit they were wrong. LCHF should be recommended for anyone with diabetes. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
