30 Healthy Low-Carb Foods to Eat

zuchinni

You’ve decided you’re going on a low-carb diet. So what do you actually eat? The key to not feeling deprived is to consume a variety of foods from all the food groups—even grains can fit nicely into low-carb eating. We recommend that on a low-carb diet you get about 40 percent of your calories from carbs, or at least 120 grams of carbs total per day. That amount helps you maintain a balanced diet and get all your nutrients in. It’s also more doable and less restrictive than following super-low-carb diets.

Here are 30 wholesome foods to incorporate into your low-carb diet:

 

LOW-CARB PROTEINS

1. Eggs

One large egg packs 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat and less than 1/2 gram carbs all in a nice 72-calorie package. Eat the yolk: new research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that while eggs do contain cholesterol, they don’t increase your risk of heart disease—even if you have a gene that makes you more sensitive to dietary cholesterol. They also pack important nutrients, including vitamin D, lutein and choline.

2. Beef

Meat is fair game because it’s all protein and no carbs. (Keep in mind, while it has a good amount of vitamins and minerals, meat also contains no fiber. Translation: You shouldn’t overdo it on the meat and crowd out the whole grains, fruits and vegetables that add fiber in your diet.) You know chicken is a lean source of protein, but 20 cuts of beef are also considered “lean” or “extra lean” by the USDA. Smart choices include eye of round roast, sirloin tip side steak, bottom round roast and top sirloin steak.
