Why I Follow a Low Carb Diet
What IS low carb?
The “low carb” diet can mean a LOT of different things, there’s actually no specific definition. How I put following a low carb diet into practice, is to create a plan for higher carb foods, namely:
starches (bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, corn, peas, beans)
Many foods contain carbs besides pasta
What are the benefits of a low carb diet?
The benefits are vast – ranging from optimal health, to weight management, to disease prevention and even reversal. Here are some great resources to get you started.
