Avoid simple sugars: Avoid soft drinks, table sugar, bread, pasta, starches, ice cream, anything with high fructose corn syrup. Eat vegetables, salads, beans, whole fruits with low sugar contents, chicken, fish and lean meat. Get in the habit to look at the label and see how much carbohydrates is in ( high fructose corn is in ketchup, salad dressings, bread, coated french fries...).

Low carb foods!: Generally you want to avoid sugars and starches (grains, potatoes). Do eat non-starchy carbs like vegetables, avocados and berries and have moderate protein foods like beans, nuts, seeds, eggs, cheese, chicken, fish, grass-fed meats etc. Avoid gmo foods ; animals fed gmo foods (thus choose organic meats/eggs).

Meat and fiber: A low carb diet basically focuses on meat (hopefully lean protein like chicken or pork) with high fiber, low starch vegetables like leafy greens. Avoid grains and avoid root vegetables, as these are high in starch. Of course, avoid sugary snacks, as well.

3 choices: When it comes to food, you only have fat, carbohydrate and protein. You can't eliminate any of the 3 altogether. If you increase or decrease one of the 3, the other 2 have to change as well. Too much or too little of any of the three can cause problems. Try eating a well-balanced diet with fewer calories and more exercise. Stay away from exotic info from friends, tv or the internet.
