The rate of adherence to a study diet was % at 1 year and % at 2 years. The Mediterranean-diet group consumed the largest amounts of dietary fiber and had the highest ratio of monounsaturated to saturated fat (P< for all comparisons among treatment groups). The low-carbohydrate group consumed the smallest amount of carbohydrates and the largest amounts of fat, protein, and cholesterol and had the highest percentage of participants with detectable urinary ketones (P< for all comparisons among treatment groups). The mean weight loss was kg for the low-fat group, kg for the Mediterranean-diet group, and kg for the low-carbohydrate group (P< for the interaction between diet group and time); among the 272 participants who completed the intervention, the mean weight losses were kg, kg, and kg, respectively. The relative reduction in the ratio of total cholesterol to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol was 20% in the low-carbohydrate group and 12% in the low-fat group (P=). Among the 36 subjects with diabetes, changes in fasting plasma glucose and insulin levels were more favorable among those assigned to the Mediterranean diet than among those assigned to the low-fat diet (P< for the interaction among diabetes and Mediterranean diet and time with respect to fasting glucose levels).
Super, Marion. So glad you tried and liked it. I understand that every recipe doesn’t appeal to every person, so I’m glad this one worked for you. I would actually try the mashed cauliflower with celery root recipe for gravy. It’s texture is the most like potatoes of any of the mashed cauliflower recipes. Moreover, the celery root gives a nice flavor to the mash. It is a little higher in carbs, but so worth it. I’m drooling over your breakfast. It sounds absolutely outstanding. I’ll have to try it next time I have leftover cauliflower mash. Thank you for your wonderful comment and the breakfast recipe. Have a great week. -Kim
Could you please help?
Low body temperature as low as – Heart attack two years ago, reduced kidney function and pseudo obstruction (Ogilvie’s syndrome) due to complications with the heart attack (2 open heart surgeries and the second one resulted in flap and sternum removal). Also, low blood pressure episodes (the lowest one was 40/30 after Tylenol 3 was given). Also receiving IGIV due to protein immune deficiency. I am told that thyroid is fine.
Any idea of what might be causing the low temperature now.
The blood pressure goes down on and off. Usually is 90/60
