Arrow Low carb foods

For those of you on the low carb thing is there a website that I can go to for ideas on low carb food? I dont mean that prepackaged expensive shit either, just normal everyday food. I'm not really trying to cut carbs completely, just keep them to a bare minimum so I can drop about 15 lbs of fat. I'm also working out 3 times a week so hopefully I wont start getting all weak and feel like I have no energy. Anyhow if anyone has some ideas or a link let me know. Thanks!!

just keep in mind low carb diets are EXTREMELY bad for someone who works out or is active.

why? by low carb i mean low carb not no carb. I probably take in about 30% of the normal daily allowance for carbs.

Carbs do alot...They help store energy, increase the rate of protein synthesis, and so forth. A low carb diet is still bad if you work out. I try and consume more than the normal daily value, its just healthy. 30% is bad if you're active.

So what kind of foods do I stay away from if I'm active? I'm not super active but I do work out 3 times weekly, play ice hockey once a week and ride dirtbikes once a week. Damn this diet shit is confusing.

Saturated fat. It also isn't what you eat, it's the amount of calories you ingest.

So it's that simple? Stay away from saturated fat and keep the calories down and you will lean out?

Yes. I don't know how the idea started that the Atkins diet is the only way to lose weight. If you stay on the Atkins diet for a long time, you are at higher risk for heart problems and colon diseases.

Now, don't load up on other kinds of fat, thinking you will be ok. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated are ok in moderation, and usually oils are good for your heart, but they are also high in calories, so use these sparingly. These can be found in fish and oils like olive oil. If you want lots of information on these, you can do a Google search.

As far as calories go, eat less than you burn. For a general idea, multiply your weight by 15 or 16 since you are active, and that is how many calories your body needs a day. Then to lose weight, subtract 500 from that, and stay active.

Some one else can probably explain this better than I can, this is all just off the top of my head.

the good ole low fat, low calorie, and low sugar diet is one of the best. High protein, lots of greens and veggies. Just like what your parents always told you was good. haha
