If we will not take carbohydrates then how our body will get energy.Is protein diet enough for us to survive.? do protein also converts into energy ?
Iam very tensed about how my body will get energy,though my diabetes is under control...
No one on this forum has said "not take carbohydrates". What has often been said is to cut down or reduce your carbohydrate intake in order to reduce/lower your glucose levels. I have written in your previous postings that you need to use Google or Yahoo to search on complex vs simple carbs. Please include a search on the Glycemic Index reference food groups. Educate yourself about the foods available to you, what you put into your body and how these foods will affect your life.
All carbohydrates are broken down to glucose to produce the energy. But there are two forms of carbohydrates that diabetics need to understand. The good is complex carbs, what you should eat. Complex carbohydrate foods are basically those in wholegrain form such as wholegrain breads, oats, muesli and brown rice. Complex carbs are broken down into glucose more slowly than simple carbohydrates and thus provide a gradual steady stream of energy throughout the day.
The bad is Simple carbs, what you should NOT eat. Simple carbs are refined carbs found in many processed foods which tend to be devoid of these natural nutrients, therefore there is a greater risk that some of the energy will be converted into fat and stored. Simple carbs also are broken down faster and their glucose absorbed more quickly into the bloodstream, thus elevating your glucose levels.
Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. Hair and nails are mostly made of protein. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
Lastly, you have Dewayne McCulley's book. Are you following what he writes?
We need both good carbs and good fats to survive. Simple carbs are bad, Complex carbs are good. Unsaturated fats are good. They are divided into monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. Saturated and trans fat are bad. Try not to mix or combine carbs and fats into single groups.
Sure, not everyone can tolerate all complex carbs but again you're turning a group into a single item. Neither asok or I can tolerate fruits, a complex carb. I don't go around saying complex carbs are bad, I say to ppl fruits are bad for me.
If your whole wheat bread contains brominated whole wheat flour you will get elevated glucose levels. The FDA does not require brominated whole wheat flour to be listed on the nutritional label. One can assume the bread contains it, as many commercial brands do, if the nutritional label has a number listed next to carbohydrates and sugar. But then, your tolerance for whole wheat bread just might be zero as fruit to me is zero.
