    Does Anybody know any high calorie, low carb foods ?

    I need to gain some weight. My normal weight is 123 lbs , I now weight 108 and I look it.The Diabetes low carb diet doesn't work well for me. Thanks for any suggestions.

    I have the same problem and I have a found a few things that fit the bill. Some of them require work and others truly do not. Kentucky Fried Chicken fits the bill, an Original Recipe breast has 7 grams of carbs, but 360 calories. Fat and protein. Steak, cheese, butter, they will all put weight on. The cholesterol is the problem, but my doc just prescribes Zocor and tells me to keep it up. What do I mean by butter? I mean slather it on a piece of salmon or chicken breast and shove them in the oven with a bit of black pepper. It turns out very delicious, not low calorie, but low carb. Good luck.

    Hi Noel,
    I'm in a similar position - I don't want to lose any weight, but do want to maintain a low-carb diet. Fortunately there are lots of delicious high fat, low carb foods...
    all sorts of nuts and nut butters
    cheese, cream cheese
    avocados
    butter, cream
    dark chocolate (I eat the 85% chocolate varieties, one or two squares, and they don't raise my BGs at all)
    bacon
    olive oil in salad dressings
    mayonnaise (for me, one of the major food groups)
    If you're concerned about saturated fat you can leave out the bacon and dairy products, and still get plenty of calories from the other foods.
    I hope this is helpful.

    Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas by special cells, called beta cells. The pancreas is below and behind the stomach. Insulin is needed to move blood sugar (glucose) into cells. Inside the cells, glucose is stored and later used for energy. When you have type 2 diabetes, your fat, liver, and muscle cells do not respond correctly to insulin. This is called insulin resistance. As a result, blood sugar does not get into these cells to be ...
