South Asian Low Carb



The South Asian Health Solution, by Dr. Ronesh Sinha MD

Here is the link to this book on Amazon, just to make it easy to find out about it (I have no financial ties to Amazon). It will also be available from other sellers. At the time I am checking this link, the Kindle version is just $3.99 Canadian. Note: Kindle versions of books can be read on almost all cell phones, tablets and computers – you don’t at all need to own a Kindle device.

Carb counts for South Asian foods   LINK

** Note: this list was put together for people using the typical amounts of carbs that have been advised in recent decades. Many of the foods on this list are not suitable for use by people who are choosing a lower carb eating pattern. I include this link so people can learn the amounts of carbs in various food choices, so they can better understand their options. I am not meaning this as a recommendation of what to eat. This list was not designed for use by people eating low carb nutrition.

For people who are targeting a low intake of carbs per day, the information given in this list is not detailed enough to track your carbs if your daily carb total is intended to be low, such as under 50 grams or so.

Presentation by Dr. Kesar Sadhra.  LINK

“Dr Kesar Sadhra is a general practitioner with an interest in type 2 diabetes. His practice, Manor Park Medical Centre in Slough, has a 90% South Asian patient population. Dr Sadhra analysed the diets of his diabetic patients and came to the logical conclusion that carbohydrates were the main offender. Since then, Dr Sadhra has been implementing low-carbohydrate diets for diabetes control with great success over the past ten years. This talk was given at the Public Health Collaboration conference 2017 in Manchester.”
