Calories & not No Carbs is for diabetics & all seeking weight loss (Health)

posted by bibleprobe(R) Homepage, Mass., 06.27.2011

Curbing calories is the key ingredient for diabetics seeking to lose weight, and low-fat diets that are either high in protein or high in carbs are equally effective, researchers say.

I've found this study to be true. Forget those NO carb diets. Eat Carbs, but something like only 1.5 cups of whole wheat spaghetti. It seems to be working for me... Push back dinner and hr or 2 later so you don't get hungry.

My favorite diet now is 1.5 cup (size bit smaller than a Quarter / $.25 cent) of angel hair wheat spaghetti; and a sauce of 1/2 can of no salt black beans, less than a qtr of a 24 oz jar of Chateau spaghetti sauce (low in salt), or any similar low sodium sauce, 1/2 can of a 6 oz no salt added tomato paste (+ 1/2 of its can full of water), two slices of chopped onion, and 2 cloves of chopped garlic. 2-3 dashes of cayenne pepper & oregano, and tablespoon of olive oil after the sauce has cooled down. And lastly, a few dashes of 25% reduced calorie parm cheese. Can substitute 3/4 can of no salt added diced tomatoes for the Chateau Sauce, if you like that better.

For breakfast I bake a spicey black bean vegetarian burger, and make a two-egg (1 piece of American cheese) egg-beater omelette. If get hungry in mid-day I just eat 2 tablespoons of 25% reduced fat peanut butter 1x or 2 times. Peanut butter gives you the folic acid you need, and it's filling.

I've actually dropped from a size 38 waist to a 36 waist in 1.5 months doing this. That's good & bad. Means I have had to spend money taking in my pants and buying smaller pants. /s/ Steve @


Curbing calories is the key ingredient for diabetics seeking to lose weight, and low-fat diets that are either high in protein or high in carbs are equally effective, researchers say.

"I think there are two key messages from this study," said study lead author Jeremy D. Krebs, a senior lecturer with the school of medicine and health sciences at the University of Otago in Wellington, New Zealand. "The first is that no matter what diet we prescribe, people find it extremely difficult to sustain the changes from their habitual diet over a long time. But if they are able to follow either a high-protein diet or a high-carbohydrate diet, they can achieve modest weight loss."

Krebs said this first message conveys flexibility and allows people to choose the approach that best suits them and "even to swap between dietary approaches when they get bored."

The second point "is that for people with diabetes, if they can adhere to either diet and achieve weight loss, then they do get benefits in terms of their diabetes control and cardiovascular risk," he added.

Krebs and his colleagues are scheduled to report their findings Sunday in San Diego at the American Diabetes Association meeting.

To compare the potential benefits of two popular dietetic approaches, the authors tracked nearly 300 overweight men and women between the ages of 35 and 75 who were on a new, two-year nutritional program.
