Low Carb Means No Fruits and Vegetables…

I will go ahead and let everyone know that this is not true. Just because you are on a low carb diet, does not mean that you have to give up your fruits and vegetables. Your body needs both fruits and vegetables to keep it functioning properly. Even though eating more “vegetables” than “fruit” is something that is encouraged in low carb, it is all about the quantity of fruits and vegetables you eat. For example, you can eat almost two bowls full of cabbage and have nearly no carbs at all, but when you eat two bowls of corn, you might be pushing it. Corn is a vegetable that contains quite a few carbs. This may be why some believe that you cannot eat vegetables while on low carb. You just have to eat a small amount at a time. Maybe only eat one cup of corn or less every other day.
