Low Carb Diet

A low-carb diet limits carbohydrates within a range of 50-150 g net carbs daily and emphasizes foods such as meats, fish, eggs, non-starchy vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, and healthy fats. 

Some low-carb diets greatly restrict carbs during the first weeks of the diet and then gradually increase the number of allowed carbs. 

The recommended carb intake per day depends on your goals. For some people looking to achieve rapid weight loss, the optimal amount might be around 50 g carbs per day, while others who are very physically active might want their carb intake as high as 100-150 g net carbs daily. 

Low-carb diets that focus on healthy sources of carbs, fat, and protein can help lower the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Studies show that extra protein and fat in a low-carb diet helps you feel full longer, enabling you to eat less. 

It's important to check with your doctor before starting any weight-loss diet, especially if you are taking medications or have any health conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease.
