I'm Diabetes type 2......my cholesterol is 140.....Can I eat shrimp, crab and lobster ?

 

If I could afford it...that's all I'd eat.

A little rule of thumb to remember about food. It's either a fat, a protein or a carbohydrate. I.E. shrimp, good. Breaded shrimp in cocktail sauce that has sugar...maybe not.

Very similar to how I like to cook my shrimp.

 

 

I admit to being obsessed with this guy.  I like his style of cooking.  :)

I have a really simple but tasty way to prepare shrimp.  Heat butter in a pan, add shrimp, salt, pepper, garlic to taste.  There is this Vietnamese chili garlic sauce that I really like.  I stir in about a tablespoon of that.  Plate and squeeze a little lemon on the top of it.  Fast, simple, good...

If they're not breaded, all of the above should be fine.  I enjoy all three, but rarely have lobster. 

There's a way around that!!!

Use Almond Flour, Pamasan Grated Cheese and a Spice that may be to your liking. Any how, i love Salmon.

True, but almost no restaurant or prepacked food will provide that.  You'll probably need egg or something like that to make it stick.

Four dozen little neck clams in large skillet with a cup of sherry and several chopped cloves of garlic. Cover and bring to a boil until they open. Remove clams tnto a bowl, save some of the liquid for dipping and pour remaining liquid over clams.  

 

If you are willing to exceed daily carbs or can bolus a few units of insulin, sliced Italian bread tastes great when dipped into the liquid.

Add some butter to that liquid and I will be there in a second to join you. Very similar to how I love Manila clams, only I use white wine instead of sherry.

For breakfast this morning I diced up some leftover shrimp from yesterdays dinner, and scrambled a couple of eggs into it.

 

Yum.

I'm guessing the OP is concerned about dietary cholesterol. According to the latest USA dietary guidelines, dietary cholesterol is not a "nutrient of concern",

 

http://www.cnn.com/2015/02/19/health/dietary-guidelines/index.html

 

The 140 is because your liver is doing its job, it is not from dietary cholesterol. And dietary cholesterol (without breading and sugared sauce) does not raise blood glucose.

 

Total cholesterol is meaningless. It includes HDL, which is the "good cholesterol."

 

LDL is almost as bad. It is not measured directly, but is calculated from other measurements. The first assumption is that your body follows this calculation. Then even if the calculated value is correct, it includes sub-fractions that do not promote atherosclerosis. And finally, the drug that best lowers LDL has not shown it reduces cardiovascular related deaths. https://www.forbes.com/sites/matthewherper/2017/03/17/amgen-drug-prevents-heart-attacks-not-deaths-disappointing-experts/.

 

So enjoy your shellfish and eggs, either separately or make a seafood omelet.

Lee & Kit, Now I have to buy some shrimp to snack on while I  try all those delightful tips & tricks. Loved the Big Cherry/Straw  pit remover best. After watching all this I am starving. And that's a good thing.

 

Cheers,
