A low carbohydrate diet means taking fewer carbohydrates. In such a diet, the intake of proteins and certain fats is increased and foods that have high content of carbohydrates are excluded. Foods such as Pasta, Noodles, Rice, and Desserts are high in carbs. In the 1990s Dr. Atkins started the high-protein and low-carb diet.
Some recommended low-carb recipes are as follows:
Spinach with spices :
• 2 pounds Spinach
• 2 cloves garlic
• 2 cloves
• Half tablespoon white butter
• A few fenugreek seeds
• One stick cinnamon
• Few seeds of crushed black pepper
• Salt to taste
Wash and finely chop spinach leaves. Add butter into a pan. Add fenugreek seeds, cloves, garlic, cinnamon, crushed pepper and stir for 2 minutes. Then add spinach and salt and cook on low heat for about 20 minutes.
• One pound fillet of fish
• Salt to taste
• Black Pepper
• One teaspoon Olive Oil
• One tablespoon lemon juice
Marinate fish in olive oil and lemon juice. Add salt and black pepper. Take a baking dish and bake fish for 6 minutes.
• 2 breasts of chicken
• 2 teaspoons ginger-garlic paste
• One teaspoon Tomato puree
• One teaspoon lemon juice
• One tablespoon olive oil
• Salt and black pepper to taste
Marinate chicken breasts in all the above ingredients. Take a baking dish and bake chicken for 10-15 minutes. Garnish with coriander leaves.
The above recipes have low caloric value and are high in proteins. These can be accompanied with multi-grain or wheat bread and can be included as the main course of a meal. Caution should be taken not to be on extended duration of low-carb -diet as carbohydrates give energy. If people are in jobs that require high physical activity it is essential to have carbohydrates included in their meals. People with low physical activity can be on extended duration of low-carb diets

I was exuberant when I weighed myself this morning and was down another pound, to 239.5, I can't wait to go to bed and weight in the morning, I didn't eat at much on thanksgiving as I planned, just filled up fast, my mouth was watering when my brothers wife's son 's girlfriend said she had made home made pumpkin pie, I tasted a tad and it had no flavor so I just thought my flavor buds were overrun, so that night when I got home after savoring for hours with anticipation about the pie, I dabbed it with reddi whip, and ugg, what a let down, there absolutely was no sugar and no spices, this was the worst pumkim pie I ever had, I even asked my roomate to taste it, and she said they forgot to put sugar and spices in, well, I convinced my roommate to go on a mission in search of deliciouse pumkin pie, and low and behold we found heaven from the local mom and pop bakery, freed at last, whew
