Default Ketostix in Chennai?

Hi,

I'm recently diagnosed as diabetic, and am going low-carb. Are Ketostix available in India, particularly in Chennai, or is there something similar available here?

Thanks

Hi Chennai gal,
Well I found Ketostix in Calcutta so I guess they should definitely be available in Chennai. But I must warn you, these strips are notoriously succeptible to humidity and if I know about Chennai atall, I know that humidity is pretty much a constant. So, I suggest you dont worry about the stix much, just get down to LCing, be strict and firm with yourself (discipline, discipline!!!) and try to work some exercise into your daily routine.
All the best.
Anu

This is a PS to my previous post.....
I notice from your profile that you haven't read any LC books, just basing your decision on internet data.
Well, that's your decision and I dont want to knock the net...I've found some amazing info myself on the internet, but i strongly suggest that you do SOME reading to understand the science behind LC. That way, the motivation is likely to be higher, you will know the major food composition of the stuff we commonly eat and you can go INTO the subject, if you know what I mean.
Diabetes is horrible, perhaps the worst disease anyone can possible have. I should know - I lost my mother to diabetes related complications, and it's the one disease I personally fear the most. So investing in a book is a small price to pay if it keeps you healthy.
(Sorry, my PS became longer than the actual post, but I feel very strongly about this)
All the best in your quest to beat - ugh- diabetes.
Anu

Hi,
Yup, very much out here....here as in calcutta, India.

What kind of support are u looking for? For starters, I would seriously suggest you read the Atkin's book. Understand the science behind LC, get an idea of what food's should be off the radar, etc etc etc..... For the rest, we're here!

Hi Anu,
I have read the book(skimmed through most parts of it). I live in bangalore.

Am doing induction. This is my 3rd attempt. And the previous two times I gave in to carbs coz I was not able to be creative enough with my induction meals. I have never moved beyond induction.

This is day 3 of induction for me and I plan on staying on it for 3 months.

Any ideas? What did you eat during induction.

And one more thing. Is sheekh kebab allowed during induction?

Hi,
For one thing, it REALLY helps to be a non veggie and from your query on seekh kababs, it seems you are one, so hip hip hurray on THAT front!!!
The second thing about managing to stay on the wagon, er....induction, is to plan ahead. Load up the fridge with stuff like sausages, bacon, ham, salami, kababs (seekh or otherwise!), cheese (I find that having cheese slices or cubes available readily at hand helps a lot), eggs, butter and the low carb veggies (cucumber, saag, etc).
The third thing (not necessarily in order of priority) is to unlearn our bias against fats. The thing is, we've been brainwashed into hating everything to do with butter and oil. And the tendency is to cheat on the "fats" part of Atkins diet and hope to make up the deficit with increased protein. But we'll not be doing our kidneys a favour by overdosing on proteins. So believe in Atkin uncle, eat the reccommended portion of fats (additional benefit is that fats keep you feeling full for a lot longer).
Wish you the very best and all success!

Anyone know the carb count for 'Amchuran' (dried mango powder). Do you know what I can use in lieu of it to make mint chutney?

I tried making it with dill but it turned out pretty aweful. Maybe lemon or vinegar with some splenda?

Anybody have a good mint chutney recipe without the amchuran? thanks

Hi Vidya,

I joined today. Am based in New Delhi. LC for the past 7 months and really struggling with it Mainly because of the variety and quality in the meats available here.
Do share your experience and maybe we could find some useful info to swap.
