Eggs are easily introduced to the daily diet as they form part of a delicious breakfast plate. Meals containing naturally-occurring meats can offer a perfect source of protein that is low or free of carbohydrates. Nuts (like almonds) are easily added to a salad or eaten as a light snack and can help with weight loss when following a calorie-controlled diet. With high starch content, beetroot, corn and carrots include a higher concentration of carbohydrates and not recommended for the carb-free diet.
Food packaging labels are permitted to list food items as containing zero grams of carbs even if there is a small amount. Many of the low-carb diets have limited food choices which can result in foods that are high in fat and protein and low in calories.
Carbohydrates include foods such as breakfast cereal, pasta, bread, soft drink, grains, biscuits, fruit juice, lollies, potatoes, pizza etc etc. Because carbs induce an insulin response which encourages the body to hold on to fat storage which can lead to insulin resistance, weight gain, inflammation, diabetes and leptin resistance – which leads to more over eating…and the cycle continues! High carbohydrate diets are also associated with mental health issues such as depression and anxiety as well as increased cardiovascular risks.


By removing the refined carbs such as grains and wheat you are effectively removing most of the gluten in your diet and as we know, gluten increases intestinal permeability known as leaky gut and causes an imbalance of gut microbiota known as gut dysbiosis which increases autoimmunity and inflammation.
Also if you suffer adrenal issues and thyroid conditions getting slightly more carb may suit your make up and lead you to better health.
So remove the processed carbs and increase your fats and help your body to repair and dampen inflammation. Since the body does not NEED carbohydrates for energy, we can use fat for energy instead, there are no risks. If you suffer adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues or you are a sprint athlete who needs carbs for explosive fitness, then including healthy carbs is perfectly acceptable and even recommended.
Secondly, when you build your plate focus on a palm worth of protein for women (2 for men) and then get at least a thumb print of full fat  (to start as you transition, working your way up) and then finally good healthy vegetable carbs such as sweet potato.
A carb-free diet relies on a food intake that removes starchy, sugary foods that are high in carbohydrates, which has the potential to slow the weight loss attempts.
Likewise, mayonnaise and salad dressings contain carbs due to the fact they are made using vinegar and often include herbs. Ice cream and high-sugar yogurts are usually packed with carbohydrates and should be avoided when on a carb-free diet.


Even though the alternatives may include trace amounts of carbs, they are usually regarded as no-carb foods. Packaging laws make it possible for food manufacturers to list carbohydrates as zero grams provided that the food include less than 1 gram. Anyone wishing to follow a low or carb-free diet may wish to cut the carb intake to 25 g a day or less. A low-fat protein food like eggs is easily scrambled, fried, hard boiled, or chopped in salads. The intake of fat and protein is increased and this makes up a certain amount of calories that would normally be sourced from carbohydrates. Extra is needed with deli and pre-packaged meats as this is processed and contains seasoning blends, salt solution, or sugar which will confer carbohydrates to the meat. Also, cured and processed meats like frankfurters, bacon, ham, and sausage are likely to include a nominal amount of carbohydrates.
