  • 3 c. raw of most non-starchy vegetables
  • Meats, eggs, fish and many flavorings and toppings have fewer than 5 carbs each serving.
  1. Have your breakfast with protein

If a bacon and eggs breakfast sounds suitable to you , it means you are in luck.

  • A fried egg with bacon or sausage may become your daily breakfast.
  • Make omelets with some kinds of vegetables like bell peppers, spinach, tomatoes orzucchini; meats and cheese
  • Blueberry or zucchini muffins is good as well
  • Drink water or some coffee and tea
  1. Switch out your sandwich for lunch

  • Roll some deli meat up in a lettuce leaf, then add mustard, cheese, spear or other additives
  • Mix up some chicken or shrimp salad
  • Low-carb pizza
  1. Have meat-and-no-potatoes dinner

Meatball, steak, pork chops, grilled chicken or fish may be dinnertime staples. Additionally, roasted or grilled vegetables and salad also are a standard accompaniment.

  1. Slip in low-carb snack

 Starving between meals may make it easier for you to cheat on high-carb guilty pleasures, so prepare yourself carefully  by pre-packaging your low-carb snacks to fulfill your appetite at the end of the workday.

  • Almonds or blueberries is a choice
  • Other types: cut veggies with low-carb dressing; unsweetened yogurt, fruits (having an orange, apple or grapes, dried apricots, or an unsweetened peach or mixed fruit cup)
  1. Drink more water

  Water will be filling and help make your low-carb transition much easier.

  • At least 8 glasses of water a day
  • Carry a bottle of water with you all day to take regular drinks, before you’re thirsty.
  • Slice lemons and add them to your water pitcher to make some flavor.
