Myth: Low Carb diets Only Make You Eat Junk

Now, as to how the low carb diet would make you eat junk, it has not been explained, but low carb can be a bit daunting to some. Most of this doubt comes from the fact that the diet tells you to eat things like bacon. Bacon is probably the biggest shocker to some that are thinking about going on the low carb diet. If you are on the low carb diet and cannot bring yourself to eat the bacon, do not worry. The bacon is only by choice. It is not necessary to eat if you do not want to eat it. For others that have eaten the bacon, they will tell you that it is nothing to worry about because it is part of the “low carb” diet thinking. Bacon has little or no carbs at all and you can easily pull off the fattiest parts of the bacon. So there is no real reason why you should fear the low carb diet makes you eat junk, when it actually tells you to eat healthy things. Just remember that you should soak the grease out of the bacon after you cook it.
