Plan Your Day With These Low-Carb Recipes For Weight Loss

If you are looking for a healthy low-carb diet to shed those extra kilos, then we have some interesting low-carb recipes for you. From your breakfast to lunch, to evening snack and to dinner, we have covered it all. We all know that a healthy body is more difficult to achieve and is generally assumed that there is a lot of work that goes into it. By a healthy body we don't just mean a slim and lean physique, but also a body that is free of all diseases and deficiencies and one with all the organs working at an optimal rate. Besides being physically active, you also need to take care of your diet, which is rich in proteins and low in carbohydrates. Bangalore-based Nutritionist, Dr. Anju Sood, suggests that one should ensure the perfect balance of two components in the meals - complex carbs and proteins. Complex carbs releases a low quantum of sugar and they are rich in fibre. Increasing the intake of these types of carbohydrates is advisable for weight loss. If you couple them with it some protein source that makes the meal all the more wholesome and nutritious.
