A Guide to Low Carbohydrate Diets
Now that you are ready to start your diet, you need to remember what you can and cannot eat. The portions are not limited, although you are going to want to eat only until you are satisfied, not until you are stuffed.
Here is a table of food items that are naturally low in carbohydrates.
Sausage Cottage Cheese
Vegetables: Fruit, Nuts, etc:
Green Beans Tart Cherries
Water Chestnuts Cashews
Snow Peas Brazil Nuts
A good rule of thumb is that any meat, or dairy product is allowed. Nuts, some vegetables, and certain fruits are also allowed.
You may mix and match these items as you wish to add variety to your daily faire. Most combinations will yield a very low carbohydrate meal. Do not worry about the calorie or fat content of these items. The calories do not matter, and surprisingly enough, you need to eat some fat in order to lose a lot of fat. Be careful when you get into luncheon meats and wieners. Some of these may contain more carbohydrates than you think. Check the nutrition labels for exact amounts on processed foods such as bologna and hot dogs. Be sure that you incorporate plenty of water into your diet as well. This will flush the free ketones out of your system and promote the loss of weight.
