Healthy Recipes for Low Carb Success
Using healthy low carb recipes are an important part of your diet success, just as it's important to remember to drink enough water helping your body to remove the byproducts of the fat burning process. A healthy recipe provides you with the other essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals that you need to feel as good as you look.
Is a recipe healthy just because it contains some foods that are acceptable for a low carb diet? If it were, I'd be eating nothing but low carb chocolate and becoming a master chef, making low carbohydrate cheescake recipes!
Good, healthy low carb recipes should not only contain low carb foods that taste great, but satisfy the requirements of various phases of your diet. For example, on the induction phase of the Atkins diet, your daily maximum carbohydrates are 20 grams. So in order to keep this recipe and your menu plan for the day designed for maximum health, it would make sense to include recipes with low carb foods that are high in vitamins and other beneficial nutrients.
Besides the obvious health reasons for eating a diet, high in nutrients and the necessary vitamins and minerals, there are other practical reasons. Ensuring that there is enough fiber in your meals over the course of the day will prevent constipation on a low carb diet. If that's not a good enough reason all by itself, I don't know what is!
Just as you can see the negative changes in a person's health in the movie, Super Size me, the same thing can happen if you're not careful about what your food choices will be on your low carb diet. My best advice is to spend the money on a book or two. And give yourself a week to get started. This will allow you to plan your meals, buy any new groceries you'll need and order any supplements, equipment, or information you'll need to get the best results possible.
The other reason, you should get books on a couple of the low carb plans is to decide on which one best fits your lifestyle and goals. The best low carb diet is the one that you can live with.
