A low-carb diet is a diet that cuts back on carbohydrates, such as those found in sugary foods, pasta, grains and bread. It is high in protein, health promoting fats and anti-oxidant rich vegetables. Studies show that they can facilitate weight loss by balancing your blood sugar and insulin levels. By maintaining healthy blood sugar and insulin levels you reduce inflammation, boost fat burning, balance appetite, improve your cholesterol balance and lower your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. But just because you cut out the grains and pasta doesn't mean you have to sacrifice flavor and pleasure in your eating.
