What are some foods that would work well with a really low carb diet?

What are some foods that would work well with a really low carb diet? Because I’ve started the diet today and the only really low carb things I can find are bacon, eggs, progresso, and crystal light. Thanks for the help!!!

    Actually, you don’t need to diet in fact to lose weight, I learned this at the website in the box below, they have lots of guidance, I melted away 10 pounds by following their helpful advice.

    Canned tuna. Steak. Salmon. Chicken.

    It’s not technically low carb, but you should still probably throw in some spinach and arugula salad. It’s lower carb then bread, and vegetables are generally good for you.

    One thing. Don’t make the single biggest mistake people make on a low carb diet. They also eat low fat. BIG mistake. ok, now the foods!

    you should design your meal plan around these food sources:

    Protein: eggs, chicken, tuna, salmon, white fish, turkey, whey protein powder

    Fat: almonds, cashews, all natural peanut butter, avacado, extra virgin olive oil, fish oil capsules, evening primrose capsules

    Carbs: only GREEN veggies. As many as you want.

    eating like this is VERY boring but VERY effective.

    Be wary of anything with citric acid (crystal light) it will stop ketosis. Progresso??

    The best way to break carb addiction is NO carbs for 3 days. Make a huge batch of deviled eggs, eat one every time you want “something” – have huge omelets with bacon, sausage, peppers, mushrooms & cheese. Pork chops smothered with peppers, mushrooms & cheese – pork rinds & dip or tuna/chicken/turkey/egg salad – steaks – a huge sugar free cheese cake. Eat so much you won’t feel deprived of anything. By the 4th day, the addiction will be gone & you can start making healthy choices.

    During the first 2 weeks, you can have several cups of salads – Bacon, lettuce & a lil tomato with avocado/mayo dressing is my fav. Jicama, cucumber, celery & radish marinated in sesame oil & hot pepper flakes with rice wine vinegar & artificial sweetener. Make a stir fry with Bok Choy, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, celery, mushrooms, shirataki noodles & your fav meats. I love eggs & could eat deviled eggs every day. You can smother omelets & meats with mushrooms & peppers & cheese. Meatzza – Meatloaf with pizza toppings (pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers, mozzarella) I prefer very thin sausage patties fried crispy with pizza toppings. Pork rinds & celery sticks are great crunch and can be eaten with dips (avocado/mayo/cayenne is my fav) & tuna/chicken/turkey/egg salads. I love love love my rotisserie and it makes the meats extra tasty. I cook a turkey every couple of months and make soup with the bones (add vinegar to leach minerals) & turkey salads. I’ll cube up some turkey meat mix in a couple of raw eggs add cheese (and broccoli after induction) with cayenne powder & nuke a couple of minutes for nearly instant meal. Flax seed should be eaten 2T daily even in induction.

    Ground flax seed (2-4 Tbsp) 1/4 cup water, sweetener, mix in a raw egg – let sit 10 min. to absorb liquid, put some cream cheese in the middle & nuke 2 min for daily fiber needs.

    After the 2 week induction, you add 5 grams of carbs per day every week and add a much greater variety of non starchy vegetables. Change your mindset – eat what you like to eat, just adapt it to low carb –
    replace bread with lettuce
    replace pasta with cabbage
    replace rice with cauliflower
    replace potatoes with brocolli
    Cabbage makes an excellent pasta substitute Make a lasagna with blanched cabbage leaves & thinly fried eggplant instead of noodles. Sugar free pasta sauce over fried cabbage. My fav is chicken cacciatore, I add greens & flaxseed or chia seed for body and also add pizza toppings – pepperoni, mushrooms, lots of mozzarrella. Alfredo sauce is also low carb..

    I make a lot of shredded cabbage & mayo or fried cabbage if I’m a bit more ambitious. I cook up some bacon & throw in onions & let them fry & it makes any salad extra special (BLT) Avocado & turkey is great on a salad – Grilled chicken or fajita meat & fried onions too. Sometimes I’ll make a canned salad – can mackerel, can baby corn, can water chestnuts, can bamboo shoots, can artichoke hearts, can sweet red peppers & add in mayo & chia seed gel.

    Kim Chee is a fermented cabbage salad & is suppose to be one of the most healthy foods in the world. You can make a huge batch & it will sit in refrigerator fine for a long time.

    I usually make huge batches of food & freeze most of it. I cook meats 20-30# at a time (for just me) I have gone into the forums for recipes (especially when I first started low carb) I was shocked that fried “rice” made with grated cauliflower tasted just like it’s name sake. Shirataki noodles are traditional in Japanese sukiyaki and low carb. I’ve heard faux mashed “taters” made with cauliflower & cream cheese can fool non low carbers. “potato” salad using cauliflower instead.

    Adapt what you’ve always eaten first (I bet someone has a recipe for it or low carb version) and then start exploring.

    Chia seeds sound so expensive but 1# will make 10# food (when you can splurge some – has couple lbs. for $16 shipped to you. I buy mine in bulk – 24# for $5.83# with free shipping at

    I also order off Amazon – Lowrey’s Pork Rinds 18 for $15 – they pop like popcorn & are portion controlled.

    Faux tapioca – 2 cups of water, 5 scoops of low carb whey protein powder, stir together & add cup of chia seeds, after they have started to absorb the water, add in 2 cans of coconut milk (or cream and added water during induction) & artificial sweetener if you like and mix it all in. Can be eaten after an hour but will be better tomorrow. Cream a pkg. of cream cheese into a can of pumpkin & add to the faux tapioca for an even more nutritious pumpkin pie pudding.

    (berries are lowest glycemic) Cheesecake – strawberry ice cream (frozen berries, cream, a stick blender) – pork rinds great crunch – i eat lots of fish for snack (fish “steaks” or mackerel in tins are favs)- avocado/mayo/cayenne dip – olives

    Pumpkin soup
    * 1 (12 ounce) package Jimmy Dean sausage
    * 1/2 cup onion
