The Best and Worst Low Carb Foods

When it comes to a low carb diet, you'll see that there are
different types of diets AND more importantly, different
types of carbs!

Check out the article below to see which fruits you may
want to include in your low carb diet plan.

The Best and Worst Low Carb Foods

Some low carb diets depend on glycemic index or glycemic
load while other low carb diets depend more upon total carbs.
Some low carb diets restrict healthy foods such as fruits all
together. Your safest bet is to check carb counts which are
arranged by sugar content while taking volume and weight
into account.

The great news is that the fruits that are the lowest in sugar
are the ones with the most nutritional value including
powerful antioxidants and other phytonutrients. The fruits
that are low in sugar include papayas, apples, cherries,
pears, guava, plums, peaches, melons, apricots, grapefruit,
blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and
cranberries. Consume as many of these fruits in as big of
a variety as your diet will allow you to eat each day.

The fruits that are high in sugar and carbs and should be
avoided are bananas, mangos, dried fruits, kiwi, pineapple,
oranges, tangerines, and grapes.

When it comes to low carb diets most vegetables are
encouraged though they still may be limited. The vegetables
that are all non starchy and are usually low in carbs includes
cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radishes, celery, lettuce,
spinach, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, eggplant, tomatoes,
green beans, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, peppers, cucumber,
pickles without added sugar, avocado, onions, okra, pumpkin,
turnip, carrots, squash, and sprouts.

There are some vegetables that should be avoided because
they are starchy and high in carbs such as all types of
potatoes, plantains, peas, corn, carrots, and beets.

Check your specific diet to see how many calories and carbs
you are allowed to consume every day. Make sure you count
all carbs such as organ meats, limited consumption to 4 oz.
per day. Also limit your consumption of hot dogs, bacon, and
processed meats. All diets can benefit from limited the foods
that have high saturated fats.

Thanks for these awesome tips, and for the link. I've tried a lot of diets, but the effects aren't really showing that well. I'm not growing fat anymore, but I'm not slimming down either. I might give this a try, along with that "eat clean" thing I've been reading in magazines. I hope I can find a eat clean recipe page that has foods with low carbohydrates. The pictures with those eat clean recipes look very tasty, and very healthy as well.
