Living The Low Carb Lifestyle
If you have been following a low carb diet for any length of time, you know how difficult it was in the beginning to eat the right foods. It feels like every food you reach for is loaded with carbs these days. Low carb dieters need to be creative in preparing meals so they can have flavor and stick with a low carb lifestyle.
The secret to success with a low carb diet is enjoying the food you eat and having enough recipes to prevent boredom. Boredom equals bad eating habits and weight gain.
What Is A Low Carb Diet Anyway?
We shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves and assume you already follow a low carb diet. If you are new to all this low carb diet talk here is a quick breakdown:
- Typically a diet that has you eating 50 – 130 grams of carbs a day but can fluctuate heavily depending on how you respond to carbs
- You focus on eating natural, unprocessed foods thus minimizing your consumption of sugar and starches and replacing them with protein and healthy fats.
It is really not that complicated as long as you remember to eat enough calories in the day from healthy fats and protein along with vegetables and a small amount of fruit. The mistake many people make is to cut carbs and not eat anything in their place. This isn’t a calorie cutting diet as such but a reduction in excess carbs.
Once you start asking people about low carb diets or reading about them you will discover everyone has their own methods they believe in. They may also follow different plans like Atkins, Paleo or any number of the high protein, moderate fat, low protein diets available which all have the underlying theme of reducing your carbohydrate intake.
In the end, it is your personal choice as to how strict you are when following a low carb diet.
