Can you list some low/no carb foods?

I'm trying to cut out carbs and seem to be very limited on my food choices

  • Most meat has very little carbs. Cheese is low, as is a lot of dairy. Most vegetables have little carbs, fruits have some.

    Pasta and bread are really high in carbs.

  • Meats, cheeses of any kind, chicken, fish, eggs, nothing with sugar or flour, there are some low carb pastas out there, some veggies are low carb others are not like potato. If I were you I would get a pocket size low carb counter.. good luck, I can tell you this works for weight loss as long as you keep to it religiously, if you don't you will end up gaining weight.

  • watch Dairy. Milk has 12 carbs per serving, same as a piece of bread. Also yogurt. Cheese however is okay.

    Things that have a LOT of carbs are easier to list then carb free. Stay away from WHITE food. white rice, white bread, white pasta, white potatoes.....
    Eating good carbs like WHOLE GRAINS is very important.

    Fruit has a lot of carbs too, each serving of fruit (fresh) has about 15 carbs.

    As the wife of a Diabetic, we have to watch our carbs too. But we also have to balance them with proteins. And make sure you are not consuming more then 45 carbs per meal.

    Good Luck

  • Avoid breads, cereals, rices, pastas, potatoes, the big starchy things like those.
