I have recently been told by me Primary Care Physician that I need to watch my carbs in order to lose weight. On the same day, my Neurologist told me that, because of the medication I take (Depakote), I need to watch my proteins, because I can't digest them as well. Any suggestions?

Cool Thanks

Hi

I am very happy to find this forum. I wanted to do the veggie low-carb because I was on the atkins low carb and it works but I want to stop eating meat. Presently I do eat lot of vegetables, fruit and nuts (raw and cook) I am more drifting to eating mostly raw food, vegetarian style eating plus loose weight for optimum living.

I am on the Insulin Resistance Diet; it's a modified protein/carb balanced eating plan that lets you eat things like beans and dairy, lots of low-starch veg, along with measured amounts of fruits and grains. Nothing is denied, so this is something I can live with the rest of my life.

I modify the Insulin Resistance Diet to include more fats than they allow, as I feel their emphasis on a low fat diet is outdated, but other than that, I am thrilled with this eating plan. Besides, I'm a firm believer that the best diet around is the one we tweak to suit our own needs!

You can go on Amazon.com and view, I think, 38 pages of the book for free, if you're interested!

If anyone wants to swap recipes or needs a particular vegetarian recipe, just let me know...I have lots of low carbohydrate books on my shelves, and I also enjoy modifying meat-containing recipes to be vegetarian ones.

Jocelyn, what book on amazon are you talking about?

You can make a pretty decent hummous out of tofu or canned black soy beans if you don't object to using soy. And, it's lower in carbs, higher in protein.

Karen, where can I find the recipe for the hummus made from black beans and soy?

Ronchick, it's harder to be vegetarian and low carb without soy, but if you are ovo-lacto, you don't have to use soy unless you want to.

I eat all of it--eggs, dairy, and soy--and I also include seeds, nuts, and small amounts of lentils. I wouldnt say 'unlimited amounts,' since lentils like all vegetarian protein sources have some level of carbs. So I suppose the way to put it is that you can eat all the lentils you want up to to your daily carb maximum. That usually isn't an issue on Protein Power's 40g ECC per day...but it can be pretty limited amounts if you're trying to stick to the 20g of Atkins induction. Hope this helps.

Ronchick, 1 cup of cooked lentils is 39g carbs (16g fiber, so about 23g ECC per cup). Two cups would be 46g effective carbs per day...not counting any other carbs you take in, that's pretty high and might explain why you're not losing much. Have you read any low carb books for guidance?

Try stuffing a pumpkin, winter squash, zucchini or portobello mushroom caps with a mixture of finely diced mushrooms, shredded zucchini, ground walnuts or almonds, tofu or cream cheese, herbs, etc.. Add a side of either steamed greens or spinach salad with red onion, and top the whole thing off with a dessert of whipped cream with cranberry/orange drizzle. And enjoy!
