What is a Low Carb Diet?
Low Carb Diets are dietary programs that restrict carbohydrate intake. Low carb diets are usually followed for weight control or for the treatment of obesity. Foods high in digestible carbohydrates such as bread and pasta (or things made from white flour)) are limited or replaced with foods containing a higher percentage of proteins and fats like meat, poultry, fish, shellfish, eggs, cheese, nuts, seeds and peanuts, salads and vegetables. The amount of carbohydrate allowed varies with different low carb diets.
