• diet
  • Information and resources for those following a low-carbohydrate or carbohydrate-controlled diet. (dmoztools.net)
  • The Western pattern diet or standard American diet (SAD) is a modern dietary pattern that is generally characterized by high intakes of red and processed meat, butter, fried foods, high-fat dairy products, eggs, refined grains, potatoes, and high-sugar drinks. (wikipedia.org)
  • His book with Christian Allan: Life without Bread: How a low-carbohydrate diet can save your life is still in print after 16 years. (wikipedia.org)
  • This caused him, as early as the 1950s, to instigate a diet for long-term use that he felt to be low enough in carbohydrate to be compatible with our genetic inheritance and so restore the missing harmony. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hens like humans had moved from a largely animal to a largely carbohydrate diet and suffered similar changes in their arterial walls in old age. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dr Lutz was to find that his low carbohydrate diet was effective with both childhood obesity and with hyperinsulinism - a hormonal pathway to both common obesity and, through exhaustion of supply, to Type II diabetes: he found that sufficient carbohydrate restriction could prevent the vascular complications of adult onset diabetes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Wolfgang Lutz also found that his low carbohydrate diet brought patients many general improvements amongst which were improved immune function, a calmer nervous system, better digestion, enhanced skin and tissue quality, and a positive effect on overall health. (wikipedia.org)
  • sugars
  • Americans ages 1 and above consume significantly more added sugars, oils, saturated fats, and sodium than recommended in the Dietary Guidelines outlined by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chemical
  • Chemical digestion of carbohydrates picks up again in the small intestine as the pancreas delivers pancreatic amylase along with a battery of other digestive enzymes. (karelsavry.us)
  • This will include chemical compounds such as acetic or lactic acid, which are not normally considered carbohydrates. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, carbohydrates often display chemical groups such as: N-acetyl (e.g. chitin), sulphate (e.g. glycosaminoglycans), carboxylic acid (e.g. sialic acid) and deoxy modifications (e.g. fucose and sialic acid). (wikipedia.org)
  • fats
  • Carbohydrates and proteins provide 17 kJ approximately (4 kcal) of energy per gram, while fats provide 37 kJ (9 kcal) per gram, though the net energy from either depends on such factors as absorption and digestive effort, which vary substantially from instance to instance. (wikipedia.org)
  • bread
  • They make up a large part of foods such as rice, noodles, bread, and other grain-based products, but they are not an essential nutrient, meaning a human does not need to eat carbohydrates. (wikipedia.org)
  • vitamins
  • The same year, he started research at the Dunn Nutritional Laboratory in Cambridge, working principally on the effects of dietary vitamins. (wikipedia.org)
  • type
  • The purpose of this statement is to review the available scientific data regarding the effect of the type or source of carbohydrate on the prevention and management of diabetes and to clarify the position of the American Diabetes Association on this important topic. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • fruits
  • Our pre-hominin primate ancestors were broadly herbivorous, relying on either foliage or fruits and nuts and the shift in dietary breadth during the Paleolithic is often considered a critical point in hominin evolution. (wikipedia.org)
  • High
  • On the day before the race, the athlete performs a very short, extremely high-intensity workout (such as a few minutes of sprinting) then consumes 12 g of carbohydrate per kilogram of lean mass over the next 24 hours. (wikipedia.org)
  • Consequently, sources of high-fructose carbohydrates, such as fruit and sweets, are less than optimal for the task. (wikipedia.org)
  • food
  • Carbohydrate digestion begins in the mouth as chewing breaks up food and mixes it with saliva. (karelsavry.us)
  • As the swallowed food/saliva mixture reaches the stomach, the acidic juice reduces the activity of salivary amylase, which halts carbohydrate digestion. (karelsavry.us)
