Why low carbohydrate diet? : Voices about the high sugar consumption. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka familjers upplevelser av att minimera intaget av socker/snabba kolhydrater. Detta genomfördes med kvalitativa ostrukturerade intervjuer där föräldrarna i familjen fritt fick berätta utifrån olika teman. Dessa teman täckte områden som anledning, tillvägagångssätt, reaktioner, svårigheter, beteenden och eventuella hälsovinster relaterade till kostomläggningen. Utöver dessa familjer valdes tre bloggar ut inom området lågkolhydratkost. Dessa följdes och analyserades som komplement till intervjuerna. Resultaten tolkades utifrån socialkonstruktivistiskt synsätt och teorin om symbolisk interaktionism. De mest framträdande resultaten var att samtliga som ingått i studien har upplevt förbättringar i sin hälsa, i de flesta fall förbättrades även barnens kognitiva förmåga. Vidare upplevde de att traditionen med sötsaker som både belöning och tröst, är djupt rotad vilket innebar att kostomläggningen inte var så enkel att genomföra utan att få höra epitet som "fanatisk" och "extrem". Ingen av intervjupersonerna uppger att de kan tänka sig att återgå till kolhydratrik kost.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine families' experiences of minimizing the intake of sugar/highcarbs. This has been studied with a qualitative unstructured method with the parents in three families from different free to tell based themes. These themes covered areas like reason, procedures, reactions, problems, behaviors and potential health benefits related to their dietary change. In addition to these families, three blogs were selected in the field of low carbohydrate diets. These were followed and analyzed as a supplement to the interviews. The results were interpreted on the basis of social constructivist approach and the theory of symbolic interactionism. The most prominent findings was that all who entered the study have experienced improvements in their health, in most cases also improved children's cognitive ability . Furthermore , they felt that the tradition of sweets as both reward and comfort, made their dietary change implement difficult without hearing the epithet as " fanatical " and " extreme" . None of the interviewees stated that they would be willing to return to the high-carbohydrate diet.
