    Thinking of fruit for supper...I've not found that eating fruit for supper makes me crave more fruit. I have been amazed how eating 1 or 2 apples curbs my hunger too. There's so much fiber in these northern-grown fruits. Biggest challenge is for me not to add grains like rice or oats to my 3rd meal. It may be just me but it makes it hard for me to sleep, it seems to create more acid. So I try to stick to just fruit. Sometimes I'll just have 2 meals a day and focus on starches, leafy veggies and whole grains. Or I'll have some berries on oatmeal for breakfast. That always fills me up.

    I have dropped a dress/pant size since January. But I'm hoping to keep losing. I try to eat only fruits for supper and this is helping--I focus on northern grown fruits. Lately, I have a small bowl of frozen blueberries and an apple. It seems to be working.

I agree with Dr. Carney's suggestion and my first meal of the day is my biggest and then I taper from there to my smallest meal. I try to finish eating by 4 p.m. but some days it's 6 p.m. I also eat greens with my breakfast meal. That really helps me control cravings for unhealthy foods during the day. It's like magic. :-)  More ...

I know starting the day with "VFB" or Veggies For Breakfast seems to do a lot of magic for me, but I never considered a fruit based dinner; Not so sure I should as for a 2nd breakfast I'll usually have an oatmeal with fruit. Not to mention that just fruit for dinner I don't know how my body would react and cause me to want MORE sugar?

And, it iWe love our lighter fruit based evening meals. It helps us sleep better, not to be too full, and to have eaten such quickly digesting foods. And, it is sure a tasty treat each evening. The secret is to have a large breakfast and a big lunch so that when the evening meal time rolls around you are not feeling super hungry and so do not give in to the temptation to over eat.  More ...

    Is it possible to have lupus if you have redness on your cheeks and the bridge of your nose but don't have any other lupus symptoms? My skin rash has improved since going oil free and avoiding tree nuts. But sometimes I wonder if I have lupus. I'm wondering if I should have some medical tests to find out.

    I have a friend whose daughter has kidney disease. The doctor thinks it may be FSGS. Wondering if there is any lifestyle related treatments that can help her. She had a kidney transplant but her body has recently rejected it. So it is back to dialysis. Wondering if there are other options available for someone like her.

    My son has had a severe stomach flu. We then discovered he is dealing with a stomach ulcer. I've been following an ulcer-healing way of eating that involves no nuts, citrus, or spicy foods. But he told me this morning, he's worried he's still losing weight (lost weight during the flu because of not eating and vomitting). So he experimented yesterday morning and had a little almond butter on some millet bread I made.

    I have a list of ideas for gaining weight but most of them are based on using natural fats--nuts, seeds, olives, avocados. Fat builds acid in the stomach so we are trying to avoid these right now. Do you have any other natural ways to gain weight on a plant-based diet?

    I had my gall bladder removed almost 10 years ago. I am wondering if the body can't digest fats very well when we don't have one. I know when my gb was diseased, it had trouble digesting fats. I've found I have flareups in a skin rash on my face when I get too much natural fats--wondering if this is normal?

    • Hi there,
      I agree with you that there do seem to be more problems with dietary fats in my patients who once had gallstones, whether or not they dissolHi there,
      I agree with you that there do seem to be more problems with dietary fats in my patients who once had gallstones, whether or not they dissolved their gallstones by a low-fat, oil-free plant-based diet of whole unprocessed food, or instead had cholecystectomy (surgical removal of the gall bladder.)

      Many people tell me that they suffer more skin inflammation when they eat foods higher in dietary fat than 20% of calories from fats. I sure do, myself. (But I have never suffered gallstones...)

      So to answer your question: Is it normal? No, skin eruptions or inflammations are not normal, yet they seem to me to occur more commonly in those predisposed to gallbladder issues.

      Are these intolerances to dietary fat more common than many people suspect? Yes, I do think so.

    I hope you've gotten my message about oil in my diet. That was the best thing I ever did on my health journey--ditching all refined oils. But I also have found that nuts can cause flareups. I had been keeping them to a strict minimum. But I've gone back to a nut free diet and it's been giving me better skin health. You might want to experiment with avoiding the chia seeds for a couple of weeks and see if it affects your symptoms.

  • Sgilmor replied to a discussion, BRINGING DOWN LDL

    Thanks Dr. Carney--some of these things don't fit my friend's situation but I see many things he might experiment with to find out what may be the trigger or triggers. You are the best! So grateful...

    BRINGING DOWN LDL

    Has anyone had difficulty bringing down LDL even though you are following a whole food-plant based diet and getting regular exercise? What has helped you bring your numbers down?
