WHAT ARE GOOD MEALS THAT ARE LOW-CARB?
Sometimes low-carb diets are successful for weight loss, may improve health, and help control blood sugars. They are necessary for some people, and helpful for many other individuals.
Low-carb diets limit carbohydrates such as sugary foods, bread, pasta, etc. A low-carb diet can be a healthy choice because instead of eating carbs, the focus is on high protein foods, healthy fats, and tons of vegetables.
To be healthy, you don’t need to eliminate all carbs from your diet including fruit, dairy, beans, etc. but having a focus on limiting unhealthy carbs is definitely beneficial. For a healthy low-carb diet, the goal is to eat a lot of plant-based foods with healthy proteins. Try to decrease refined grains, highly processed foods, and sugar.
Good low-carb food choices include eggs, meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, and some dairy. This recipe below focuses on protein and veggies, so it is perfect if you’re trying to eat low-carb.
If low-carb isn’t your thing, add a serving of pasta, rice, or even breadsticks for a delicious meal.
HOW MANY CARBS SHOULD I EAT PER DAY TO LOSE WEIGHT?
Your body needs a certain amount of carbohydrates per day to function properly, in fact it is your brain and muscle’s preferred fuel source for physical activity. Dietary guidelines recommend carbohydrates provide 45-65% of your daily calories. That would be equal to 225-325 grams of carbs per day for a 2000 calorie diet.
Typical low-carb diets provide fewer carbs than this recommendation, even as low as 50-100 grams per day. While not recommended for everyone, a low-carb diet can often bring faster weight loss.
With the increasing popularity of keto and other low-carb diets, it is possible to stay healthy and lose weight with fewer carbs. If you’re going to eat less than 130 carbs per day (the amount your brain requires), then you need to take extra caution to make sure you have a properly balanced and prepared diet.
Choose an amount of carbs that is realistic and sustainable for you. The best thing you can do is eat nutrient-rich foods that are low in sugar and limit highly refined and processed foods.
Hope you enjoy this recipe that is perfectly delicious and low-carb.
