In recent years, new nutritional concepts have emerged that are enjoying great popularity. These successfully replace old diets and menus and always promise great results. Logically, you ask yourself how you could lose a few pounds, but without starving yourself or training in the gym for hours. The answer to this question is the low carb diet, which is considered the perfect alternative for healthy indulgence. In this article, we want to briefly explain what is low carb and which foods are allowed in the preparation of low carb dishes.
- What is low carb and why is it on everyone’s lips?
Low carb comes from English and stands for a healthy nutritional concept with no or a low percentage of carbohydrates. In short, it is a form of nutrition that reduces the carbohydrates in the daily diet. Nutritionists and experts in healthy eating believe that high-carbohydrate foods lead to obesity and thus endanger our health. And that’s actually nothing new, because the first cornerstone of a low-carbohydrate diet was laid in the 19th century. In the course of the past few years, nutritional concepts such as “life without bread” and the Atkins diet, which are very close to the low-carb diet, have been particularly popular.
The low carb diet is based on protein-rich foods, for example the following are allowed: eggs, meat and sausage products, fish and seafood, some cheese products, quark and natural yoghurt and soy products. It is also recommended that you eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, consume nuts and seeds, and use vegetable oils in cooking and baking.
Carbohydrate-rich foods, on the other hand, are absolutely taboo. These include potatoes, rice, pasta and other grain products such as corn flakes and crispbread. Fruit juices, soft drinks, sugar-containing delicacies and alcohol have to be removed from your menu. It is recommended that you drink plenty of water, including moderately unsweetened coffee and tea.
- Low Carb Dishes – Which Are The Most Popular?
Low carb dishes are only prepared from low-carbohydrate products. In addition, when cooking, you try to use only fresh ingredients, if possible from your own garden. There are low carb dishes classified by time of day, which are compiled by nutritionists. The experts assumed that the body uses different amounts of energy at different times. The superfluous will then be stored as a fat depot. And that is by no means wanted. So choose the low carb dishes that fit your daily schedule and recharge yourself with energy and a good mood.
