Whilst putting together this list of foods low in carbs I thought to myself, “this might take some time. . . " because the beauty of low carb diets is the fact that they are so flexible and broad.

This is great news for us low carbers, as knowing what foods we can incorporate into our own customized plans allows us total freedom with our low carb food diets from day to day, week to week!

This freedom of course, will ensure that those of us who are committed to losing weight and staying healthy through a sensible low carb diet will find the variation enough to keep us “excited" about our next meal (and therefore able to actually stick to our low carb diet.

Finally having this overview type of knowledge allows us to get a better understanding of the low carb diet as a whole. However, I must tell you that the following list of low carb foods is NOT exhaustive, as there are literally thousands more options available. I have merely attempted to give an overview for easy understanding and reference.

Therefore, if you'd like thousands more ideas, and some powerful tips and motivation to make your low carb diet a success, then please keep reading to find out how to get access. . .

List of foods low in carbs - Meat, Fish and Dairy

Fresh fish two to five times weekly is not only a great source of protein, but also a recommended part of a low carb diet. Fresh fish such as:

Wild caught salmon,

Alaskan halibut,

Orange roughy,

Sardines,

Anchovies,

Chilean sea bass,

Trout,

Mackerel

Shellfish (such as shrimp, crab, clams, oysters, and lobster) is fine about once a week (although shellfish are common allergens and may also accumulate toxins).

Most meats are acceptable in moderation (which should be easy to moderate when you incorporate everything else on this list). Meats such as:

Lean red meat

Wild game (rabbit, pheasant, duck, goose, deer) once or twice weekly. Try to keep the fat off with the richer game, such as duck which is very high in natural fat.

Grass-fed beef that hasn't been treated with hormones or antibiotics.

Goat. Internal animal organs (such as liver, heart, pancreas, and bone marrow) are fine once or twice weekly.

Pickled herring

List of foods low in carbs - Flavorings, herbs and accompaniments.

Fresh garlic,

ginger,

Also, you are ok to use any other antioxidant, anti-inflammatory culinary spices with your low carb cooking. More herbs are fine to use such as:

dill,

thyme,

sage

Of course, it is still important to monitor your carb intake, but with the right guidance and this list as reference, you will have no problems sticking to your low carb diet and actually enjoying the huge amount of choice us low carbers have before us!

But a list of foods low in carbs is NOT enough to actually make your low carb diet a success on it's own.
