I was suggesting fish, not 40/20/40 diet, in case anyone was wondering, which has been done at least a million times by other members without you saying anything Becky. I understand the guidelines, and refrain from suggesting anyone follow a certain diet, although I see how the sentence may look that way.
I was just noting that if you cut carbs, that fat, or protein would go up, and that if she wanted to up fat instead of, or with protein, that fish might be a good choice, since the fat/protein would come together. The ratio is still up to her to determine, but if you cut carbs, you up fat/protein. That is fact, not a suggestion. I won't say that fish is in fact a healthy food, but I am pretty sure it is. If not, please let me know, and the millions of people suggesting it is. Also, if suggesting a food source is not okay, there are many asking for, and receiving replies on what individual foods to eat on a daily basis.
If you cut carbs, and keep protein the same, fat goes up. That is also not a huge revelation, since there are only 3 macros. Maybe you are suggesting that increasing protein is better than increasing fat? Still, if you cut carbs enough, then you will be over-consuming protein, unless you also consume a little extra fat.
When cutting carbs on the " diabetic " diet, you are dropping about 15 %? of the carbs in your diet, which has to be made up by protein/fat. I personally believe fish would be a good choice, and did not mean to suggest any macro ratio to follow, since I assume that the OP has that set by her doctor.
If it is something else I said, let me know so I can correct it. I tend to write a lot, and sometimes convey my thoughts incorrectly. I tend to ramble, and stray from my original thought. Must be from lack of carbs
Maybe I should have just said.. eat some fish
.. high protein, low fat. Or boneless, skinless chicken/turkey
I hope my editing fixed the issue, and I apologize.
