Which foods should you avoid when following a low-carb diet?
A low-carb diet—or keto diet—is a diet restricting carb consumption. Instead, it focuses on ingesting proteins and healthy fats. The idea is to eat less than 50 grams of carbohydrates a day, thus making your body break down proteins and fats for energy. This could, in turn, lead to weight loss. It’s a short term diet (good for a few months) rather than something to do over the years.
