Doing A Low-Carb Diet: Expectation Vs. Reality

Expect the unexpected.

Expectation: "I'm going to have to start counting calories."

Reality: Counting calories isn't a necessity with a low-carb diet; the focus is more on the quality of what you eat, not the quantity.


Reality: It's actually not that hard to find satisfying substitutes or healthier twists to your favorite meals.

Expectation: "My meals will consist of salads and cottage cheese, and I will be very sad."

Reality: Low-carb diets need natural fats and protein to work in the body's favor, and these foods can be prepared in a plethora of ways to please your taste buds.

Expectation: "If I am replacing carbs with fat, then red meat and ice cream can't hurt as much!"

Reality: It's important to choose foods with healthy unsaturated fats and healthy proteins on a low-carb diet.

Expectation: "If I don't want to lose weight, I shouldn't bother with a low-carb diet."

Reality: A low-carb diet may help improve many serious health conditions such as reverse risks for cardiovascular disease or lowering cholesterol.
