Today, more and more people are focusing on improving their diet, for overall health preservation, as well as for weight loss and the management of various health conditions. 

A focus on whole food-based, lower-carbohydrate eating has become a growing trend in recent years, and the efficacy of this eating pattern when it comes to weight loss and heart health is well-supported by scientific evidence.  

In recent years, low-carbohydrate eating has also emerged as a clinically supported option for patients with prediabetes and diabetes. Excitingly, the 2018 and 2019 American Diabetes Association (ADA) Scientific Sessions were highlighted by several symposiums on the value of low-carbohydrate eating for patients with diabetes, to improve the management of their blood glucose levels. Over time, high blood glucose levels can cause an array of serious health complications, so taking care to optimize blood glucose levels for patients with diabetes is paramount to their long-term health. 

In fact, the ADA has included low-carbohydrate diets as an accepted and effective strategy in the management of both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes among adults in their 2019 Standards of Care

An important consideration for people who wish to incorporate more low-carbohydrate, whole food-based eating in their lifestyle is the matter of time and convenience. Cooking healthier foods from scratch can present a challenge for many, due to a busy work schedule and family lifestyle, and the resulting time constraints. Having a variety of product options that are quick and convenient, as well as health-conscious can go a long way in helping people adopt healthier eating habits in their busy lives. 

As more and more such convenience products emerge, it is ever-so-important to examine the ingredients, as selecting whole food-based, nutrient-dense, low-glycemic impact options vs, ultra-processed packaged goods that are full of fillers will be more in line with supporting various health parameters.

I have stage 4 ckd and I know I will probably become diabetic. I am 83 years old and am so sick of foods that I can eat and foods that I cannot eat. I have to watch sodium sugar potassium phosphorous. Now I have to watch my carbohydrates. Is there a place where I can get some help. What foods have low carbs. Could the fact that I am a vegetarian be a problem.
