What is Low Carb?
A low-carb diet means eating much fewer carbohydrates than your average diet. Instead, you replace carbs-rich foods (like bread and pasta) with higher protein and fat. There are many types of low-carb regimens, including the keto diet.
What is considered low-carb? Although there is no consensus on the exact number, a low-carb diet generally means that you eat around 130 grams or less of carbs per day1. There are many benefits to a low-carb diet, but the main one is weight loss. Low carbohydrate diets have been shown to be effective for weight management. Additionally, increasing foods that are high in protein and healthy fats can promote satiety and reduce hunger cravings.
In turn, maintaining a healthy weight can have benefits like improving cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
