Thanks for sharing your good list Piggles. I think I can recommend it to my dear friend.
how to lower cholesterol naturally
I have definitely noticed as time goes by (I'm at day 17 now) that there are certain things that are working better for me from my list than others.
I tried just eating protein and fat and found that my stomach couldn't tolerate it. So I played with my diabetes medications so I could eat some more carbs.
Right now I find eating 5 small meals a day is working best for me.
My go-to's are:
shake with whole fat milk yogurt, coconut milk, coconut oil and frozen berries
2 slices of cheese on a piece of whole grain toast or on crackers
Trader Joe's mini quiches (I don't eat all the crust to cut down on the carbs)
two scrambled eggs with 1 TBSP butter OR 2 hardboiled eggs with 1 TBSP full fay mayo on toast
nut butter (peanut, almond, etc) on graham crackers
I'm still waiting to hear back from my nutritionist, who said she would work on some more options for me. When I hear back I'll share more ideas with you.
HCV+ since 1988. Genotype 1b. Last viral load UNDETECTABLE at week 7 of treatment. Last liver biopsy 2/0. IL28B TT.
Started triple drug therapy with Incivek 2/23/2012. Taking it day by day.
The best things for me were a bagel with peanut butter & a glass of Whole milk Chocolate milk, cheese crackers and glass of whole milke...pretty much anything with a glass of whole milk would work well for me.

DET 4 wk. UND 2,6,12,24 48 treatment. Achieved SVR 2013!
With my 6 am dose I just took 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil and went back to bed. 2 pm dose (when at work) was 2 tacos from taqueria truck and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. 10 PM dose was usually a big protein drink followed with some olive oil. I just could not eat much while on treatment.
I kept a big bottle of olive oil in the kitchen and a smaller bottle in my car. Sometimes my phone alarm would go off driving across the state. If worse came to worse, I would just pull over, take some olive oil and down my telaprevir.
My VL was all zeros from week 4 til finishing so the olive oil apparently worked.
You could get the fat without high sugar counts, but frankly, I don't see how you could be on a low fat diet with this tx. You will need to consume 20 grams of fat apx every 8 hours, and I would not mess around with that requirement.
However, 60 grams of fat per day is not considered high fat for the average man, so in theory you could limit your fat intakes to only when you take the incivek.
Meeting with a nutritionist would be a very good idea.
Diagnosed in 2011, Incivek triple in 2011, tx discontinued, Genotype 1a, CT, VL 7mill, cirrhosis dx in 2012, age 67, waiting for new DAAs.
This is excellent information, organized for easy use, and much more imaginative than the mental list I used. I am still so tired of bagels, cream cheese, peanut butter, fruit cake, egg nog (I was in the middle of triple treatment during the holidays), grilled cheese and bacon sandwiches, twinkies, Zingers, Ho-Ho's, etc. And these used to be some of my favorite things.
I hope people will use this list and enjoy the 20g fat meals more than I did.
Geno 1A Started Pegasys/Ribavirin/Incivek Nov. 20, 2011 . Completed July 28, 2012 (36 weeks). For a treatment history, see: https://jshare.johnshopkins.edu/xythoswfs/webview/_xy-9921874_1
SVR on January 14, 2013!!
I found myself putting together this list for myself, so I thought I would share it here with you too. I am diabetic so eating things like donuts and ice cream doesn't really work for me, hence my own list.
Just be sure to check the labels on the food you buy to make sure it contains the same amount of fat as mine.
Hope this helps others who are taking Incivek.
I'm talking to a nutrionist soon and will come back and add any suggestions she has as well.
