What is the Food Manual for Low Carbohydrate Diet?

A low carbohydrate diet restricts the carbohydrate intake and emphasizes on consuming high amounts of protein and fat foods.

A low carbohydrate diet generally excludes or limits most grains, breads, sweets, pastas, rice, fruits, alcohol and starchy vegetables, and sometimes nuts and seeds. However, some low carb diet plans allow certain fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

In general, a low carbohydrate diet focuses on proteins, including meat, poultry, fish and eggs, and some non-starchy vegetables.

Most low carb diets limit the daily carbohydrate intake to 50-150 grams.

Yes, it is true that [except for clever cooks who are good with spices and food combinations], the Atkins (low-carb) diet is very boring. But consider these points: * Those who need to eat a lot can eat lots of very high protein foods with no problem and no hunger! * For most people, no more worries about weight gain, diabetes, or lipid imbalances that can lead to death from circulatory and cardiac illnesses. * More energy, better sleep, and less depression for many, especially when combined with regular meditation and exercise. You decide.
