Low-carb Food
A low-carb diet aims to consume a lower volume of carbohydrates, such as between 20-40g per meal or 70-130g per day. Research has shown that eating meals that are low in carbohydrates improves blood sugar and decreases neutral fat levels. It is also said to help prevent metabolic syndrome and diabetes as well as be suitable for dieting.
