A Low-Carb Diet for Beginners
Do you want effortless weight loss? Or type 2 diabetes reversal and other health benefits? Then a low-carb diet should be right for you.
You can eat all you need to feel satisfied – there’s no calorie counting required. No products. No pills. No surgery. Just real food.
A low-carb diet restricts sugary foods, and starches like pasta or bread. Instead you’ll eat delicious real foods, including protein, natural fats and vegetables.
Dozens of scientific studies prove that compared to other diets, low carb is more effective.
This guide contains everything you need – what to eat, what to avoid, and exactly how to do it.
A low-carb diet means you eat fewer carbohydrates and a higher proportion of fat. This is often called a low-carb, high-fat diet (LCHF).
Most importantly, you minimize your intake of sugar and starches. You can eat other delicious foods until you are satisfied – and still lose weight.
Many high-quality scientific studies show that a low-carb diet makes it easier both to lose weight and to control your blood sugar. And that’s just the beginning.

There are solid scientific reasons why low-carb diets works. When you avoid sugar and starches your blood sugar stabilizes and the levels of insulin, the fat-storing hormone, drop. This increases fat burning and makes you feel more satiated.
