I recently just read the Perfect Health Diet and for those of you that are familiar with it I need some advice as soon as possible.

I am about to come off a 8 day water fast which I will probably never do again. And I am planning on breaking the fast with vegetables that are juiced and blended however I am scared that it will cause my blood sugar levels to skyrocket since I have been fasting for nearly a week. In Paul's book he states that those who are on low carb diets tend to usually be more sensitive to glucose. How can I break my fast without spiking my insulin

Also in his book he states that mixing starches with fat and vegetables is a good way to consume a meal so I was wondering if this was a good combination : Germinated Brown Rice with a Potato with butter, salt, vinegar, lemon juice, Broccoli and Chicken drumsticks or Ground beef. Please let me know what you think

btw, Paul recommends white rice only, not brown rice, tho germinated is probably an improvement on non-germinated brown rice,

Why not break your fast with a meal of meat and green vegetables, then start reintroducing starchy vegetables in subsequent meals.

I would definitely try to mix it up with chicken bland and a side of broccoli. Not just a juice because there is a chance your blood levels can get extremely high
