The Healthy Low-Carb Diet

  • Eat regularly spaced meals and snacks, approximately every 4 to 5 hours, to avoid feeling famished and to keep energy levels high.
  • Eliminate as much sugar as possible from your diet: soda, sweetened beverages, fruit juice, cookies, cakes, candies.
  • Choose as many unprocessed foods as possible. Don’t worry if you use highly processed convenience foods some of the time — just minimize the damage as much as you can.
  • Drink water between meals. If you must have flavored water, make your own. (Even sugar-free flavored water is high in artificial sweeteners, which will perpetuate your sweet tooth.) Add lemon, lime or orange slices to plain seltzer water for a refreshing taste without sugar.
  • Take a daily multivitamin/mineral supplement for nutrition insurance.
