View Full Version : Low Carb foods
08-31-2007, 12:26 AM
I am diabetic and really have to watch my carb intake. Any ideas on low carb items will be appreciated. I have found a few - Special K Low car cereal (not really great but it has only 9 carbs per serving), Natures Own Wheat & Fiber bread - really good! Thanks for any ideas.

My doctor suggested to me 2 things...South beach diet...and/or dont eat anything white (Such as pastas, potatoes, and things of that sort) But I am not a diabetic...I just wanted to go on a low carb diet! Check out the recipie sites and see if there is anything their. Or you could google it! Hope this is a little helpful to you! :)

Dreamfields pasta is a really good low carb product if you like pasta. My family has gone semi low carb, without an actual plan, just to phase out the 'whites'. I use the following website as a guide when choosing certain foods: http://forum.lowcarber.org Active Low-Carber Forum
Hope that helps.:)

I lost over 60 pounds a couple years ago doing South Beach. The book is great, although the menus did not appeal to me. I used the foods to enjoy and foods to avoid lists.
Some of my favorite low carb things are:
low carb tortillas-I would make wraps all the time with low carb items
low carb bread--tasted the same to me and I live off of sandwiches
low carb ice cream--gotta have ice cream
fruits--berries are the best--low sugar, high fiber
gosh my memory is not as good as I thought--I'll post more as I remember!!
