What is the Low Carb Diet?

Adopting a low carb or ketogenic diet is far simpler than you might initially imagine. It is very much a case of identifying foods that are high carbohydrate and swapping them with low carbohydrate foods.

A simple strategy is to swap beige foods with green foods and then add healthy fats. Beige foods include bread, pasta, rice and grains. Green foods include leafy greens and low carb vegetables.

The low carb diet can be a breeze to follow when you have a variety of recipes that taste great and do not require copious amounts of time and energy to put together.

Here is a simple formula for building delicious ketogenic meals, simply choose one of each of the following: 

Source of Protein + Herbs & Spices + Healthy Fats + Green Vegetables

Examples of the Low Carb Formula:

Wild Caught Salmon + Asparagus + Extra Virgin Olive Oil + Mixed Herbs
Eggs + Spinach + Cheese + Ghee + Cayenne Pepper
Smoked Mackerel + Salad Leaves + Feta Cheese + Extra Virgin Olive Oil + Oregano
Steak + Courgette + Butter + Herbs de Provence
Add mineral salt, herbs and spices to replenish your electrolytes and add flavour.
