Plant-Based Weekly Meal Plan By Diet: LOW-CARB MENU


LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

Low-carb eating is a popular type of lifestyle that was first designed to manage blood sugar and aid in weight loss, though many people find it also helps with digestion, diabetes management, and maintaining a healthy weight (even if not trying to lose weight). It’s also been shown to provide some brain-boosting benefits, due the higher amounts of healthy fats and proteins that aid in neurotransmitter and hormone function. The key is to not go no carb, but choose real, whole foods that have little effect on the glycemic index. Low-carb eating is also an easy way to ensure you get enough protein, healthy fats, and non-starchy vegetables into your diet. The good news is, a low carb plan can all be done without one bit of animal products or processed low-carb products. It’s also a great way to cut added and refined sugars and refined/processed grains out of the diet that have been linked to diabetes.

Focus foods include dark green leafy veggies, non-starchy veggies, high protein seeds, nuts, beans and legumes, low glycemic fruits such as tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini, pumpkin, berries, green apples, and citrus fruits. If enjoy specialty foods like superfoods and unsweetened non-dairy milk  or yogurts, those are also fantastic to eat as well.

Enjoy our low-carb eating plan if you’re looking to lower your blood sugar, lose some weight, or possibly reduce some digestive upset associated with gluten, sugar, or sugary, starchy foods.

Looking through these recipes I don\'t see how they could keep you under 50g (which is low carb) a day. Potatoes, beans, berries are all higher carb foods. What is the average number of carbs in the recipes? It would be helpful if there were nutritional information available with the recipes.

You are right, a lot of the food on this list would not be low carb. I have, however, done a low carb raw vegan diet and it is perfectly possible

Can you tell me what you consider "low carb"? Between 20g and 50g per day?

We teach low carb diets in our weight loss clinic. Low carb is considered about 25 carbs per meal for a woman 35 for a man. 55G a day is ketogenic

Thanks for this, I need to take a really good look at my diet as it is becoming increasingly obvious that lots of the things I eat really don\'t fit well into my body.
