Lower the Carbs, Up the Protein... How?

I'm lost. I am a 69 yr. old female who is overweight. My Doctor says I must Lower my Carbs and Up my Protein intake, this is according to my Lab results.
How do I do this without gaining weight? . Any help would be greatly appreciated since I have a bad knee and must wear a brace to excercise which is limited to walking. Thanks Much

Re: Lower the Carbs, Up the Protein..How?

hi, saw no one had responded and thought I'd take a stab at it. basically w/ not eating carbs you don't want to eat anything white....bread, sugar, rice, noodles, etc. Protein examples are beans, meats, cheeses, peanut butter, peanuts, just check the labels for how many carbs. Now I said don't eat anything white, that's the fastest way to drop the lbs. you can just cut back on them. of course don't drink regular sodas and stuff. you can probably search for "low-carb diet" and get a better feel for it. good luck cj

Re: Lower the Carbs, Up the Protein..How?

Check out the Mediterranean Diet. I lose consistently 2 lbs a week on it and hardly ever feel cravings. Brown rice, whole wheat bread, etc. All have high fiber so you don't digest them as fast (and thus spike your blood glucose) as you do with white bread, enriched pasta etc.... Yet you still satisfy your "carb cravings."

Seriously, try it for a week and see if it isn't a great balance between the Atkins (minimal carbs) and the typical "fast food" diet.

Eating low-card, high protein won't make you become overweight. Anyway, you better consult a dietician for you to have a proper list of foods that will be good for you.
