My eating plan, low blood sugar level, and brain fog?
 
Hi folks,

I recently did a bunch of blood tests, and everything is fine, except the low blood sugar level in a fasted state.

Fasted Blood Sugar Level: 69 ( Normal 70 - 110 )

I don't know if this is the cause of being so confused, and can't retain informations.

Everything in the other areas, vitamins, minerals, are fine, exept the sugar level.

I'm taking Vitamin B12, and everything is fine in the blood test.

Maybe i'm eating few calories, that gives the low blood sugar effect.

My daily routine:

Breakfast
4 Tablespoon of Oats
1 Banana
1 Tablespoon of chia seeds
1 Cup of coffee

Snack
2 Tablespoon of Dates
1 tablespoon of cacaopowder in water

Lunch
4 Tablespoons of Rice
4 Tablespoons of Red Lentils
1 Tablespoon of flaxseed

Snack
2 Tablespoon of walnuts
1 Apple

Dinner
4 Tablespoon of Whole Pasta
4 Tablespoon of Beans
1 Tablespoon of Hemp seeds

Supper
1 Tablespoon of sunflowerseeds

What do you think? :nerd:

Your estimated total calories per day: 1045 calories per day

Recommended total calories per day for an adult: 1500 - 3000 calories per day, depending on height, gender, and activity level: https://www.cnpp.usda.gov/sites/defa...erDayTable.pdf


Oh my goodness! You are eating way too few calories! 1000 calories per day is the recommended intake for a 2 year old baby! Also, your diet doesn't include any green/yellow/orange vegetables! May I ask who instructed you to eat this way?

Please see these dietary recommendations from the Vegan Society: https://www.vegansociety.com/resourc...ition-overview

Well, it seemed to me to be a very strange diet. So I decided to take 5 minutes and put it into Cronometer.
And I was surprised - it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be
The lack of fresh veggies I thought would have a more significant and noticeable effect.
And what is with all those seeds? Probably 4x what is required or recommended.

925 calories
Way too low. Most of us require twice that amount.

32 grams of protein
Again too low. most of us require twice as much.

Carbs 125 grams
low but not by too much.

Fiber is 30 g - which is good.

Fat is 23 grams - which is super low. But not bad
and 5 grams of omega 3 but just 8 of 6. pretty good.
and onlyn 2 grams of saturated fat

Oh. but your vitamins and mineral intake is bad, very bad. which figures because of the lack of greens.
Only copper, iron, and Manganese were over the 100% mark. Pretty much because of the lentils.
Everything else was below 100%

The following vitamins and minerals were under 50%
B2, B3, B5, B12, A, C, D, D, E, K,
Calcium, Potassium, Sodium, and Zinc.

First thing I would do is add a multivitamin.

You could probably just about double your servings of rice, beans, lentils, and pasta and get a lot better nutrition.

But I still think you need more greens.

silva 05-30-2018 05:44 PM

Up your amounts of beans. You're starving for veggies!

You're taking B12?

Espirito 06-01-2018 05:11 AM

Thanks All.

I'm taking a multi-vitamin, and B12 too.
My levels of vitamins and minerals are fine and B12, are fine to.
My thyroid is fine to.

I'm a skinny muscular,
I'm not tired physically, i have a great energy.
I sleep well, but this only occur at a mental state during the day, that i can't explain, honestly.

When i finish my workouts, i returned to my normal state, thinking just like everyone else... my coordination is also good.
I don't eat much, because my stomach can't handle many food, without being bloated.

I just notice, that some foods gives me the brain fog feeling and lack of coordination:

- Olive Oil
- Coconut oil
- Coffee without sugar
- Cacao powder

I was vegetarian many years, and this started when i turned vegan during a year and so.
I returned to vegetarian, and occasional i eat eggs,yogurt, and cheese.
But still i didn't returned to my old form of thinking.

I helped some people in the past, but this catch me in my life.
It's very annoying, and damage your posture with your friends, in your work, with your love ones.

I will try to double the amount, and consume more spinach, kale, clorella, spirulina again.

You should set up a CronOmeter account. It takes about the same time to enter your food there as it takes to enter your food there. Be sure to include your vitamin and other supplements. Then you can see on a daily basis how good your nutrition is. plus you can play around with your diet and see how you can change things with some additions.

I take a multi too, but keep in mind that we still don't know all the interactions that real whole plant foods have on your body. the antioxidants and the Phyto-whatchamacallits. So be sure to eat enough Greens.

Dear friend you consuming very less amount of protein which is already informed by other fellows and i think you really need to take a look at your diet, try to consume protein 1.2 times to your weight in a gram in a normal condition and if you're doing exercise then 1.8 times to weight and also focus on your weight according to height and your physical appearance and one thing is positive about you, is you follows diet chart so add exactly same amount consumption i wish you should chamnge your diet chart and get best out from that

Your protein "factor" is ridiculously high. Not even bodybuilders use a factor that high. Well, maybe some do. Who knows what is printed on the back of the box of protein supplements

I think the highest reasonable factors are between .7 and .9

But most doctors and dieticians use a factor of between .33 and .44

Or if you want you can express protein as a percentage of the Calories you eat. From 10% to 30% is a good range.

or most normal sized adults should look for between 40 and 60 grams of protein.

There are a dozen good articles I could cite for these numbers... but here is just one

Maybe he's using kg?

I'm no doctor, but I don't see much a problem here except the amount of food, and lack of vegetables. If he ups his portions (especially for the beans, lentils, and pasta), the protein amount will automatically go up too.

KG. Oh Yes. I should have thought of that. That's probably it.

And yes I agree with your assessment too. More food and more veggies.

Ijinendra 06-16-2018 12:38 AM

dear friend different sources show differ result but in actual normal human must consume 1 gram of protein for kg of his/her weight in normal condition and if you are hard worker that you lift work or you are an athletic then you need to consume higher rate of protein, the amount you showing is for them who have digestive problem .33 and .44 is not useful as it not matching the basic requirement for body growth
