What Are The Benefits Of The Low Carb Diet?


Low Carb Diet Do's and Don'ts

Planning your low carb meals is surprisingly easy, once you get accustomed to the diet. You can make many delicious recipes. Over the last decades, low carbohydrate diets have become so popular that there are plenty of cookbooks. You can also find recipes online.

Many people find that they can easily adapt their favorite recipes to make low carb meals. This means that your meals really do not have to change very much. You can probably still cook and eat most of your family's favorite foods. You just have to make sure that the high carbohydrate foods are separate, so that you can leave those for the rest of the family while you have a little more of the main dish.

One of the best things about low carbing is that you can eat with family and friends without needing special foods. It is also perfect for restaurant dining. Restaurants always have plenty of choices and you can just ask them to hold the fries or rice.

When you are planning low carb meals at home, remember to include salad. In fact, if you are used to having two courses of main dish and dessert, you may want to switch to salad and main dish. This will make sure that you eat enough vegetables as well as avoiding overeating sweet tasting foods.

Most people will want to have three meals a day and maybe one or two snacks. You should not skip meals because you need to keep your metabolism active. That is why Dr Atkins recommends never going more than 6 waking hours without eating.

For breakfast, you have a lot a choice. You can have traditional breakfast foods like bacon and eggs, sausage, omelet. Or you can have anything else that you want from your plan. You may find that you enjoy a chicken salad first thing in the morning, or fish with a creamy sauce.

If you need to eat and run, you could make a crustless quiche one evening and grab a big slice from the refrigerator each morning. Be adventurous, and you will find it much easier to keep to the low carb diet for the long term.

Remember, low carb meals keep you satisfied longer. This is because of their higher fat content. Do not try to cut down on fat in your meals. It is not necessary and it will not help you lose weight.

In fact, trying to control your fat intake is a big mistake on a low carb diet and could cause you to go off plan very fast. So try to get used to the idea that those unlimited foods really are unlimited, and allow yourself plenty of them.

One of the big benefits of eating low carb meals is that you do not have the blood sugar swings and insulin spikes that eating a lot of carbohydrates brings. This means that you will probably have more energy and those mid afternoon blues will soon be a distant memory. So if you plan your low carb meals correctly, you will not need snacks.
