“Low Carb” How To?

A basic handle on the concepts, false starts and the confusions:

Another presentation by Dr. Caryn Zinn, from June, 2015. More insights and tips. (25 minutes)

Regarding her tips – if you have any reason to track ketones, although testing blood ketones is interesting, the best value is in testing urine ketones, which is much easier and far cheaper. For a while, it was thought that testing blood ketones might be particularly useful because urine ketones might become unreliable as an indicator. I no longer think this is an issue.

BTW, there is nothing necessary about using muesli or a cereal-like preparation. Also, lot of people do LCHF without doing a lot of cooking or making “substitutions” to resemble carb foods. Some people enjoy that, and other people are not interested in doing a lot of food preparation, cooking or baking.


Another basic intro, with a specific focus on blood sugar control:

Franziska Spritzler is a Registered Dietitian, in California. She follows an LCHF diet herself to control her blood sugar. This video is of a presentation in Australia, August, 2014. (15 minutes)

Franziska now has a very good book out on low carb, healthy fat (higher fat) eating. It is available in paperback and as an ebook (e.g. Kindle). “The Low-Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty”
