LOW-CARB FIBER SOURCES

By on March 19, 2013

As promised in the “Analyze your own food diary” post, I made a list of my favorite low-carb fiber sources. Cutting carbs is popular, effective and appropriate for some medical conditions like PCOS. The main issue with the diet is the common low fiber intake associated with switching from eating a lot of grains, fruit and starches to more protein and fat.

The recommended amount of fiber each day is 14 grams for every 1,000 calories you eat. So for a 1,500 kcal diet, that’s 21g per day. Since a low-carb diet naturally restricts carbs, you’ll want to be sure every non-protein or fat bite you take has fiber in it so at the end of the day you’ve met your roughage goal.┬áThe best way to get enough fiber while you’re low-carbing is to read labels… and use my list, of course!

Here’s the list:

    I love using coconut flour, but i have never tried almond flour. If you have any good recipes for either please share :)
