I just started the LCHF diet. I just found out I have Diabetes and want to reverse it through diet and weight loss. How low is low for carbs in a day. Remember I am just beginning. 😊 How high is high for the fat/protien?

Try Doctor Mosley for the low carb diet stuff. I have cut out all pure carb excepting for whole rolled oats in my porridge in the morning because oats are 'slow-burning'. Avoid processed food, eat high quality protein and vegetables. Whole fat greek yogurt. 2 pieces of fruit but avoid trpical fruit because it is very sugary. Avoid processed food: try to eat fresh meat and vegetables excepting for the occasional smoked salmon, or bacon (with fat cut off), haloumi... make sure it is a portion only at a time. Avoid high cholestral fats but dress salads with dressing which use olive oil... good fat. Avocado is fine... fatty but good fats. Snacks... nuts (yum). Measure them into 30g portions and put into little freezer bags to make them easy to carry. Avoid cashews though because they are high cholestrol. That's about it for what I have learned in the last few weeks... Mushrooms, leeks, eggplant, any greens... great in quantity with lean meat.

Dr. Jason Fung, The Obesity Code is the best LCHF information you'll find.

I agree with Phil - "The Obesity Code" is a great book. Also look at: for more information.
If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.
