Low carb dinner recipes are perfect for those who want to start to try healthy eating by cutting carbs without skimp out on your favorite dishes.
If you want to lose weight, then a low-carb diet is the best diet to start. A low-carb diet means that you eat less carb and a higher proportion of fat.
Why less carb? Isn’t fat that makes you gain weight?
Well, When you eat carbs your body processes those carbs and turn them into sugar, and then turns that sugar into reserved fat. Those carbs are what your body uses for energy, but most of us don’t use that energy high enough to burn all those carbs (that’s why we need to exercise daily!), so the fat is more stored and you gain weight.
That’s why the best way to lose weight is to indulge in low-carb foods. Luckily, I have packed up healthy low carb dinner recipes that are so good, high in flavor, and loaded with proteins and fats. Eating low-carb doesn’t mean to have low flavor!
