Low-Carb (short for Low-Carbohydrate) refers to a way of eating that restricts carbohydrates in the diet. Carbohydrates are one of the three macronutrients, along with protein and fat, that provide energy to the body. Low-Carb diets typically limit the intake of grains, fruits, starchy vegetables, and sugary foods and beverages, while promoting the consumption of protein and healthy fats.
- A Low-Carb breakfast might include eggs, bacon or sausage, and avocado instead of cereal or toast.
- A Low-Carb lunch might include a salad with grilled chicken or fish, vegetables, and a dressing made with olive oil and vinegar instead of a sandwich or pasta dish.
- A Low-Carb dinner might include grilled steak or fish, a side of non-starchy vegetables, and a small portion of brown rice or quinoa instead of a large serving of pasta or potatoes.
