Low Carb Recipes






Welcome to our collection of low carb recipes.

Why follow a low carb diet? Well, recent research appears to show that a low carbohydrate and high protein diet can be more effective than the traditional low fat diet based on the same calorie consumption.

Please note, a low carb diet may not be the best solution for everyone, research suggests that the success or failure may depend on your particular body type and its production of enzymes and insulin.

The recent popularity of the Aktins diet has caused much debate amongst health and nutrition professionals, and we recommend that you read as much as possible before starting your low carb diet program. If you decide to follow the Atkins diet, we have some specific Atkins Recipes that are more appropriate than the main low carb menu.

Some Low Carb Diet Guidlines:

  1. Don't Miss Meals: Our low carb recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Your body needs energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A low carb diet requires more care in managing your energy intake, as proteins ans fats are slower acting.
  2. Read Food Labels:
    Don't believe labels that proclaim 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the package. Many are only slightly reduced and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are the same.
  3. Fiber is Important:
    Reducing the carbs in your diet often leads to fiber reduction as well. Look for low carb recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.

NB. If you choose to follow the more traditional diet, we also have some low fat recipes and healthy recipes you may enjoy.
