Losing Weight on a Low Carb Diet Plan

Low carb eating to lose weight means becoming more conscious about the carbohydrate content of ordinary foods. Yes, calories are still the crucial factor in weight reduction, but learning about carbs is important, too. Also, don't forget to take regular physical exercise. As Dr Atkins said: if you don't exercise you're not on the Atkins Diet!

Cut Out All Refined Carbohydrates

Switching to a healthy low-carb diet means eliminating alcohol, sugars and refined carbohydrates (high glycemic value carbs) from your daily eating. These refined carbs should be replaced with carbs that are low on the Glycemic Index

Refined carbohydrates come from a range of foods - not just from the obvious bread, pasta, cakes, cookies, chips, ice cream and candy. They include most breakfast cereals, canned foods, frozen entrees and prepared sauces, nearly all of which have a relatively high carb content.
