Low Carb Recipes - What Can You Eat?

May 1, 2008
Although there are a lot of low carb recipes available through my free 7 day low carb diet crash course, I thought it might be useful for you to use the following list as a certain "go-to" guide when working out what foods to pick up on your next shopping trip, or when just mooching your cupboards in the evening!

If you'd like some specific low carb recipes then I'd recommend you sign up for my free 7 day course which will not only give you a ton of low carb recipes but will also provide you with some essential "survivor" tips for the early (and later) stages of any low carb diet you might be trying out.

I would say some of the things I cover are lesser known and to be honest, pretty darn essential for a successful low carb diet... you know, the sort of diet plan that doesn't fall to peices like it often does for the everyday dieting folk. Hey, it's free and it's useful. Each course is provided via email so you don't have to keep visiting websites each day.

Visit http://lowcarbdietformula.com to see how you will benefit from it!

Low carb diets - here's the sorts of foods you can eat:
SNACKS:

# Celery with peanut butter
# Celery with tuna salad
# Hard boiled eggs

# 1/4 cup berries with 1/3 cup cottage cheese

# Low-carb shakes
# Cheese sticks, such as string cheese
# Sugar-free Jello, alone or with cottage cheese and a sprinkling of nuts

# Pork rinds, with or without dip

PROTIENS:

Be careful to avoid breaded meats (including "breaded from within" dishes like meatloaf) and meats served with high carb sauces.

Atkins points out that mussels and oysters have carbs, so be sure to count them.

Some organ meats contain carbohydrates. Atkins recommends limiting organ meats to 4 oz. per day. One ounce of raw beef liver has about 1 gram of carbohydrate - one ounce cooked has 1.4 grams.

Be aware that hams and luncheon meats often have added sugars - check the labels or have the deli worker do it.

Limit consumptions of processed meats, especially with nitrites (hot dogs, bacon, etc).
