- Don’t Miss Meals: Our low carb recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Your body needs energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A low carb diet requires more care in managing your energy intake, as proteins ans fats are slower acting.
- Read Food Labels: Don’t believe labels that proclaim ‘low carb’ – check the nutritional information on the package. Many are only slightly reduced and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of ‘low sugar’ and ‘low fat’ labels – ‘low sugar’ does not always mean ‘low carb’ – often the carbs are the same.
- Fibre is Important: Reducing the carbs in your diet often leads to fibre reduction as well. Look for low carb recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
