If you are interested in following a low carb diet, this is a good guide to what you can and cannot eat.

You can have eggs and bacon or ham for breakfast, but no toast or muffins.

Have a large salad with some protein for lunch.

For dinner have a portion of meat, poultry, or fish with cooked vegetables and a side salad.

Have at least 5-6 cups of vegetables a day, some raw and some cooked.

Always check your labels for the carb count of salad dressings and condiments.

If you have done any fasting to encourage a faster start to your weight loss, this way of eating will help you continue to lose weight very quickly and help you to meet your weight loss goals, without feeling hungry all the time.

Once you have reached your desired weight, continue with the low carb, high protein lifestyle with an occasional treat, and you will be able to maintain the weight you want to  be.

Don’t go back to your old way of eating or you will just gain the weight back. One good rule to follow is to weight yourself only once a week. If you have gained 3 pounds or more go back to your strict way of eating until you get it off. You don’t want to start all over again.

Also, exercise is very important to a healthy body, try to exercise at least 20 – 30 minutes a day with one day off a week, so include some form of exercise to help with your overall health and well-being. Best of luck to you in your journey.
