There are plentiful benefits to a low-carb diet, if you do it the right way. On one hand, eating a lot of carbohydrates can cause things like weight gain, decreased energy and spikes in blood sugar. Although on the other hand, eating a diet high in saturated fat increases your risk of heart disease and stroke.
Apart from weight loss, a low-carb lifestyle has been used for decades for managing diabetes and epilepsy. It’s currently being studied for its potential to protect your brain from memory problems, like dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. To ensure you meet your nutrient needs while following a Keto lifestyle, be sure to consume a wide variety of meals and consult with a Registered Dietitian.
These meals are the perfect examples of healthy, low-carb, nutrient-dense dinners as they all contain less than 20g of carbs, are high in healthy fats & protein and contain less than 10g of saturated fat per serving. Swapping out white rice and pasta and using cauliflower in two of the recipes means roughly 40 grams less carbs per serving. Your heart, mind, tummy will all ADORE this meal plan.
