Thank you, your videos are very helpful. We have a morning smoothie with kiwi, blueberries and cherries which I am told are low glycemic super foods. But we also add a big tbs of coconut oil and maybe some MCT and lots of those powders like ashwaganda, moringa etc and don’t know how many carbs are in them. Does the fiber in the smoothie mitigate against insulin? Or should we eliminate the fat from them and take it later.

    Hi Helen,

    I am not a big fan of fiber, but the fat will help mitigate the insulin. I would keep the volume of that smoothie to 6 ounces or less, but in a healthy individual that should be quite low in insulin production. Dr. Don

Thanks for your blogs. Thoroughly enjoy same. Re triglycerides…am currently using olive oil, coconut oil, a little bacon rendering and am on the search for avocado oil. What kind of oils would you recommend? Thanks for your comments.

    Hi Madalene,

    I stick to butter for low heat, olive oil for medium and coconut for high heat when cooking. I really do not use any other, maybe bacon fat when I have it or chicken fat when roasting to also baste the veggies. Dr. Don
