From the definition of low carb diet, we realized that this is a diet plan that limits the intake of carbohydrate and put more emphasis on the usage of other food nutrients like proteins and fats with the main objective being that of losing weight. It is therefore evident that food is very significant in the whole process and that is going to be our point of focus in this article. Looking at the basics of this whole topic, the following are some of the foods that we can conveniently feed on; meat, fish, eggs, vegetables with emphasis being made on those that naturally grown above the ground alongside natural fats. And as we encourage such consumption, we should be careful to avoiding sugar and starchy food packages like bread, beans, potatoes and pasta.

The freedom of feeding on all things that are not poisoners can be misleading to many. Yes food is food but the wise say that not all that glitters is gold. The same is very much applicable when we get into the food industry. Therefore because of the misconceptions around food, it is important that we make some clarifications as we progress. Take note that the title of this article is “low carb” we are not saying zeros carb. Meaning that, even some of these foods that we are listing are actually not 100% carb free. The common denominator is low it may not be zero carb. Now with that understanding, we can progress into explaining the following as some of the food elements you can use effectively in low carb diet as a remedy to obesity and weight loss:
Meat – Meat comes in many different types and we are free to enjoy all these, the only caution should be that we must go for the best and the best comes from those animals and birds that are organically fed. In others words all meat products should be from those animals that are naturally fed with grass and fodder.
Fish and shellfish – Without any kind of restriction, for low carb diet all kinds of fish are recommended including fatty species like haddock, salmon, trout, mackerel or herring. However we should be careful to avoid breading.
Eggs – Take not that all organic eggs with omega-3 enriched are recommended and remember that the mode of preparation is secondary.
Natural fat, high-fat sauces – Using butter and cream for cooking can be delighting and satisfying however ensure that all the ingredients are of healthy standards and finally desire to prepare it yourself at home.
Organic Fruits and Vegetables grown naturally above the ground – I now understand why the holy book records that the stone the builders rejected become the Conner stone. Many people don’t like vegetables yet this is one of the best foods to keep you healthy. Fruits and vegetables has become the best that was rejected initially. Today all fruits and vegetables naturally grown are recommended as part of low cab diet working effectively in weight loss management.
Sugar – There is no doubt that sugar is very sweet and because of this, nearly all of us were brought up taking sugar in nearly all the food we were fed on. Because of this background, it may not be very easy for people to forgo sugar. We understand that and much as it may not be your fault, sugar is very unhealthy to use exceedingly. With this caution, experts have rank sugar as one of the worst when it comes to carb content. Now for the benefit of your health, take note that not all that glitters is gold. It may not be easy but you must make efforts towards avoid using all the sugary drinks including soft drinks and ice cream. Besides that always be careful with all sweeteners and avoid them by all means because your health is a priority and cannot be compared with anything.
Starch – It may sound difficult to avoid some of these starchy foods because most of them are staple food for many communities, nonetheless even with that challenge, they are not categorized as low carbs thereby making them unhealthy and must not only be used in moderation, but could be avoided all together. Looking at the starchy foods listed to be avoided one will be excused to wonder if rice, bread and potato chips are not good then what is really good. That concern comes because the three are staple foods for many communities. Now take note that when we were introducing the topic we did say that it is low carb and not zero carb, meaning that nearly all the foods that we eat will have some carbohydrate in them but our focus should be on those with low content or even if they are not of low content, then the consumption should be in moderation. Still on starch it is also important to note that wholegrain products on the other hand are just less bad. That is to say legumes, such as beans and lentils, are high in carbs and needed to be used in moderation.
