Low Carb Grocery List

Low Carb Grocery List

 

It can be tricky to know exactly what foods are low carb and keto diet friendly. I put together this post to share all the foods that I’ve enjoyed while following the low carb keto diet, that have helped me lose over 50lbs.

As a low-carb dieter, the grocery store can seem like a wilderness of forbidden foods, especially when you are avoiding processed items and refined carbohydrates. Knowing what you have to limit or avoid on a low-carb diet is important, such as cookies, pastries, and bread, but walking through the aisles can be overwhelming when you’re not sure what you should eat (hint: not just meat and cheese, and in fact, overdoing it with these foods can result in health problems).

 

Balanced meals consisting of proteins, fats, and some healthy carbohydrates are crucial to ensuring that your body gets all the nutrients it needs.

 

When you’re building your low-carb grocery list, keep in mind the main categories of foods you can choose from: Protein, healthy fats, and non-starchy vegetables (no- and low-carb foods)
