This is a High carb low fat watchword list. Since I am diabetic and I don't do high carbs, it is useless to me. I eat cheese, avocados, meat with all the fat left in. High fat sauce? Bring it on. I easily and naturally hold my total carbs under 20 and those I do eat are high fiber LGI carbs.

Ignoring this kind of article I have lost 45 lbs in 6 months, my blood pressure is down 15 lbs, my A1C is 6.1 and dropping, I am off Metformine, my fasting blood glucose is in the 80s.

Hmmmm, naw I think I will go back to eating high carb low fat!

Just kidding! Keto and intermittent fasting for life! Report

Absolutely great Report
There are no words on the list that I do not already know & most restaurants have a online menu with lots of nutrition information so you can pick & choose ahead of time by what is in it & not just what they call it. If you go to the same places you could pick a few healthy choices to keep in mind. Where I live in Canada every restaurant has at least 1 heart healthy 500 calorie or less meal on their menu now, so even if you do not check ahead of time their will always be 1 healthy meal to have. Even the pubs here you can get information online & some pubs have a gluten free menu. Report

Really good to be wary of these "watch words" on the menu. don't eat out often, but when I do, I try to make it as healthy as possible. Report
