    There are many cookbooks that offer suggestions tailored to specific diets, such as the one your doctor has suggested. You can eat vegetables, nuts, beans, plus eggs and dairy products (assuming you’re not vegan). I like home made vegetable soups of different types, and adding a few beans adds fiber and protein along with some carbs. Remember that low carb does not mean zero carbs. One of my favorite products is “Carb Balance” whole wheat tortillas. They are very low in carbs and high in fiber. I like to microwave them with some grilled vegetables and cheese for a delicious snack or even breakfast.

    Cut the pastas and breads. Go with fresh food except potatoes and if you must have potatoes eat them in extreme moderation. Fiber is the easy part. See the table below for your fiber needs-
    Age 50 and younger Age 51 and older
    Men 38 grams 30 grams
    Women 25 grams 21 grams

    Split peas, cooked, 1 cup 16.3
    Red kidney beans, boiled, 1 cup 13.1
    Raspberries, raw, 1 cup 8.0
    Whole-wheat spaghetti, 1 cup 6.3
    Oat bran muffin, medium 5.2
    Broccoli, boiled, 1 cup 5.1
    Oatmeal, quick, regular or instant, cooked, 1 cup 4.0
    Green beans, cooked, 1 cup 4.0
    Brown rice, cooked, 1 cup 3.5
    Apple, medium with skin 3.3
    Popcorn, air-popped, 2 cups 2.4

    u can also add fiber directly into any recipe or take fiber in the form of metamucil or something.

    If you are not allergic to peanuts they contain a lot of protein since you are a vegetarian you need those, about fibres if you eat whole wheat and bran such as muffins with prunes you should be fine !

    Yikes – I would run away from that doctor as quick as possible. Did you know doctors have less than three hours of nutritional training? They almost always suggest a high dairy, meat eating diet too, sadly. The low carb craze was the worst thing to ever happen to this country, making obese people think they could just eat dead carcass and cut out carbs and lose weight. Which they did – and brainpower.

    Stay away from simple carbs, like white rice, white bread, ect. Replace them to whole grains, brown rice, ect. KEEP EATING complex carbohydrates!! You need them for normal brain function!! Hope this helps.
