Does anybody have good low carb recipes, or ways to cut carbs from ones diet?

Hallo, I've been on a low carb, high fat diet for several weeks now, and the weight is dropping off phenomenally. I avoid all white carbs (sugar/glucose contaning sweeteners), beige carbs - potatoes, rice, pasta, couscous, bulgur etc, and even avoid carbs in root veggies like carrots, although occasionally I will have a bit of carrot or even sweet potato. When you cut down the carbs this much, you need to increase the intake of healthy fats - coconut oil, butter, heavy cream, bacon, beef and pork, salmon etc. Nuts like brazil, pecan and macadamia are great, because they have healthy fats, but very few carbs, and you don't need a lot of them to make you feel full. If you do this, you'll lose the sugar cravings, feel that you've had enough to eat, and feel free.
There are loads of low carb recipes on the internet. Smile

My favorite is using spaghetti squash instead of pasta. Make your favorite sauce with meatballs and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Delicious

This sounds super doable and I'm glad it has been working for you!

Check out website Diet Doctor, tons of recipes, meal plans, videos and articles all focused on low carb high fat. I am just finishing week 1 of a two week challenge. I hope that by the time the 2 weeks are up I will have broken the "carb addiction". If I lose some weight in the process that's good too.
Cheers Snoogies

So are people addicted to low-fat candy etc? Pretty sure the so-called addiction is to fat+carbs. People aren't getting fat from too much pure sugar/carbs, it's foods that have a combination. Pizza, cheeseburgers, french fries, etc. Calorie dense foods. Eat them sparingly or omit them completely. I prefer moderation.
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

Good morning from Scotland 😊. I started Atkins 4 days ago and already sick of eggs for breakfast! I don’t eat bacon or sausages, so not sure what other options there are. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Diet Doctor website is a very good resource for both recipes (hundreds) and scientific evidence based information about eating low carb. Also, there is a Facebook group called Low Carb World, which is strict but supportive. They are about to run a beginner's 2 week 'starter pack'with shopping list, 2 week menu, 2 weeks worth of recipes, and with a private FB group support/coaching. That does come at a very reasonable cost of £10.

I forgot to say, I have been eating LCHF for 2 years+, and not only have I come down from a size 20 to a size 10, and released over 40lbs fat, but it has been pretty effortless and pleasurable as the food is so good. More importantly, my recent blood tests results show that despite eating huge amounts of butter over the last 2 years, my cholesterol, blood sugars, liver function, thyroid function, bilurubin, magnesium, pottassium are all slap bang in the middle of the healthy ranges. Best blood results since 1978 LOL.

Plus my blood pressure is down from 185/95 to 135/80. And my resting pulse is down from around 95 to around 70.
