What is a Low Carb Diet?

A low carb diet simply involves restricted consumption of carbohydrates, prioritising protein, fat, and healthy vegetables instead. Foods typically rich in carbohydrates include pasta, bread, and sugary foods. Following a low carb meal plan will mean avoiding or eating significantly less of these types of food.

An alternative diet for those who are looking to lower their carb intake is the keto diet. More information about our keto meal plan can be found here.

FAQ

Learn More About How Lower Carb Diets & Green Chef Works

What is classed as a low carb diet?

Generally, consuming less than 100-150 grams of carbohydrate each day is considered as being ‘low carb’. While less carbs are consumed, it’s important to keep a steady consumption of unprocessed, ‘raw’ foods.

What is the difference between low carb and keto?

The main difference is that while low carb diets are still minimal in carb consumption, a keto diet includes eating an even lesser quantity. Typically, a keto diet will include eating under 50 grams of carbohydrates each day along with a high proportion of good fats.

How to cook lower carb meals

With eating fewer carbs, you’ll want to ensure that you’re still getting a healthy nutritional split when you cook your meals. One of the best tactics for cooking low carb meals is to see each component of your dish for its nutritional value. The important quantities to consider are fibre, protein and fat. Prioritising your protein source will help you to feel fuller for longer, while packing enough fibre will aid good digestion and the good fat quantity will contribute to keeping your heart healthy.

What foods are low in carbs?

* Lean meats, such as turkey, chicken breast, or pork * Fish * Leafy green vegetables such as kale, cavolo nero, spinach and rocket. * Cauliflower, broccoli, cucumber, asparagus, radishes mushrooms, tomatoes, aubergine and cabbages * Nuts and seeds, including nut butter * Oils, such as coconut oil, olive oil, and rapeseed oil * Fruits - specifically blueberries, and strawberries * Unsweetened dairy products including plain whole milk and plain Greek yogurt
