Eat veggies

It is so easy to use a low-carbohydrate diet as an excuse for poor nutrition, low-carbohydrate food doesn't always nutritional food! Resist this temptation.

If the only vegetable you have eaten in the last 5 years has been the potato, now is a good time to begin experimenting with other vegetables. This is important for your overall health and to avoid some nasty side effects of not getting enough fiber in your diet.

If you try hard enough, you will find out which vegetables that you enjoy eating. Experiment with grilling veggies or cooking with real butter to add flavor. You can also search for new recipes through the internet or in cook books.

Remember, if you are only eating 40 grams of carbohydrate a day or less, 2 cups of plain salad greens contain only about 5 grams of carbohydrate. You have no excuse not to eat your veggies.

Veggies bring enough nutrition for a healthy life and low in carbohydrate too! Please do not miss out the veggies as your daily food!

Take a good multivitamin

We can't all do it right all of the time. Even the most conscientious food combiner may miss some healthy vitamins, minerals and trace elements in their diets.

To make sure you get everything that you need, consider taking a good multivitamin.

Check with your doctor first for recommendations and you should be tested for anemia to see if you need a vitamin with iron. However, the longer you eat low-carbohydrate and the more red meat you eat, the less anemia will be a problem and you should be able to take vitamins with less iron.

Your success is totally up to you. Assuming that you are an otherwise healthy individual, your body will do its part. Just remember to adhere to the low-carb diet plan that is right for you and add some variety to your meals to help you stay faithful to your health and weight loss goals.

Larger meals early, smaller meals later
