🤔 How do I stop eating carbs?

I get this question all the time. How do you stop eating carbs? Or, aren’t you starving all the time? and, Isn’t life depressing without any carbs?

Well, you don’t stop eating all carbs!

Right?! First of all, I’m not eliminating all carbs, just limiting the number of total carbs. Now, that number is definitely up to you, and if you have questions about your personal situation, I’d consult your doctor who knows you best. Not everything works for everyone as all of our bodies are different. However, personally, I feel better and have more energy especially when I limit the carbs, and cut out sugar and gluten. I’m also much less likely to binge on ice cream and desserts, and I do like my sweets.

🙋‍♀️ How many carbs should you have daily on a low carb diet?

Again, this is a question I’m asked often. As I said before, that number is up to you and your personal physician or nutritionist. So make an appointment to discuss your ideal numbers if you’d like.

I know people who are strict keto and stay 20 or less per day. Now personally, I can do that for a while, but it’s not sustainable. My general goal is to stay under 50 carbs per day, all the time watching to be sure the carbs I do consume are good, fresh, whole foods. Quality is huge!

That’s why it’s huge to have an arsenal of impressive low carb dinner ideas.

👩‍🍳 How can I make meals low in carbs?

Let’s get down to it! What kinds of meals are low in carbs?

Oh, honey! You won’t believe the number of delicious low carb recipes you can whip up in no time. Truly.

To start off, there are a ton of fabulous veggie-centric dishes, with zucchini noodles or riced cauliflower. How about a mouthwatering Cobb salad filled with fresh greens, grilled chicken, avocados, and blue cheese?

You can even get creative with spaghetti squash as a healthy twist on traditional pasta. Seafood lovers can delight in shrimp scampi or pan-seared salmon with a zesty lemon-butter sauce.

Now, if you’re more of a meat lover, there are countless options too! Consider making fajita lettuce wraps or eggplant rollatini with a scrumptious meat filling. Don’t forget about breakfast options too, like a delightful smoked salmon and avocado omelet or a spinach and cheese frittata. Absolutely delicious!

There are endless possibilities, mes amis! The key is to focus on high-quality proteins, healthy fats, and a rainbow of nutritious veggies that are low in carbs but packed with flavor. Trust me; you won’t even miss those pesky carbs with all these fantastic options!
