10 Foods to Buy On Low Carbohydrate Diet

Aug 18, 2008
Foods to buy on low carbohydrate diet are not as simple as it looks to be. Diet is often a scary word, because it usually means withdrawal of certain foods. But there is a healthier and easier alternative that helps you to eat foods you love, yes, and the low carbohydrate diet.

The only diet that strikes at the real cause of obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and type 2-diabetes is the low carbohydrate way of life. Plus, there are plenty of low carbohydrate alternatives that taste just like foods you aren't allowed to eat. So, now you can eat everything not anything!

Now, you have made up your mind and eager to know the foods to buy on low carbohydrate diet. Well, searching for all natural low carbohydrate foods is like searching for fresh air in this polluted world. Many of the products available are not natural, so here is a list of fresh natural foods that you can experience for overall health and fitness.

(1) Lets start shopping, first of all if you like eating non-vegetarian foods buy meats, poultry, eggs, fish and most shellfish as they contains practically no carbohydrates. Avoid processed meats as they are often cured with sugar. Try to avoid meat and fish products cured with nitrates, which are known as carcinogens.

(2) Lettuce, spinach, mushrooms; cucumber, peppers, celery and other leafy greens are the best in my list because they offer some of the highest quality nutrition for a more natural low carbohydrate diet. These leafy green vegetables are high in phytonutrients and provide a good source of fiber.

(3) Green beans are among the good foods to buy on low carbohydrate diet. While black beans, red bean, and Lima beans pack almost 30 grams of carbohydrates into a serving, green beans weigh only 5 grams of carbohydrates.

(4) Breads, pasta, and other starchy foods made with white flour are banned on a low carbohydrate diet. But, still you can buy a slice of low carbohydrate Atkins bread or Joseph's lavish bread and enjoy the taste of bread. These breads are healthy with no cholesterol and contain 3 healthy ingredients; flax, oat bran and whole wheat, which may help, protect your heart, while losing weight.

(5) Broccoli and tomatoes are other healthy members of my natural, low carbohydrate food list. Both tomatoes and broccoli are very much known for their cancer fighting qualities. Add to that broccoli sprouts may cut the risk of stroke, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.

(6) Green peas, snow peas, and sugar snap peas are relatively low in carbohydrates with so many flavors. You can enjoy peas and stay in your diet plan with only 10 grams of carbohydrates per serving, plus it contains fiber, which is also important.

(7) Everyone likes to eat cheese, so you can consume 3-4 ounces daily of firm, soft and semi soft aged cheeses including cheddar, mozzarella, Swiss, Gouda, and cow, sheep and goat cheese. Imitation cheese products are not allowed; so don't buy these cheese products. One of my favorite foods is a smoked salmon filled with brie cheese and cucumber slices.

(8) Don't be surprised if I ask you to buy coconut oil as it has been proved that coconut oil when consumed on a daily basis can speed up metabolism and can make a difference in weight loss success. Though you can buy olive oil or other good vegetable oil I recommend you to buy coconut oil as it will benefit you in many ways.

(9) Foods to buy on low carbohydrate diet must be low Glycemic index foods such as high-fiber grains and most fruits and vegetables. These foods keep your blood sugar and insulin levels steady and may help people trying to control their weight because steady blood sugar can delay hunger.

(10) You cannot forget to buy bean sprouts, as they are perfect for salads in Chinese food. Even a low carbohydrate diet will allow you to eat bean sprouts as they provide vitamins A, B, C and E, as well as iron, calcium and phosphorus.

Well, these are the 10 foods to buy on low carbohydrate diet. Anybody can be successful by eating these foods and the greatest thing of all is you're not required to exercise. Many people switch to a low carbohydrate diet simply because they don't have enough time to exercise. Still, I recommend you to add some simple activities like walking, swimming, etc. Have confidence in me; you're about to make a positive change in your life.
