Low Carb Diet and Nutrition Needs
A healthy low carb nutrition plan will have as its centerpiece low fat meats, fish and seafood, poultry, seafood, and dairy products.
You can eat a low-carb diet and be very unhealthy or you can choose your foods carefully and eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. Eating well does not happen automatically. Just as important as it is to choose your foods for weight loss, you must choose your foods for optimal nutrition. After all, if your weight is healthy, but you feel miserable from a vitamin and mineral deficiency, you aren’t much better off than you were before.
Shake it up
One of the most important things you can do to make sure you are getting the right mix of vitamins and minerals is to eat a wide variety of foods. It is very tempting to eat the same thing day after day because it takes the guesswork out of meal planning. The problem is that it’s boring, and it isn’t a plan you’ll be likely to live with long term. Try different fish. Buy a different nut or seed to munch on every week. Experiment with at least one new vegetable each time you go to the grocery store.
Only the Best
Don’t allow yourself to eat junk food. Choose food that has had limited processing. Can you easily tell what the product looked like in its original form? When you eat carbs, make sure they are high fiber, unprocessed and the best nutritional bang for your buck.
