How to Create Low Carb Meal Plans

The best way to make low carb meal plans is to choose which nutrient ratio that you will use for your daily low carb meals.

Using the 50-30-20 nutrient ratio is the best way to start a weight loss program.

This means that 50% of your calories will come from carbohydrates, 30% from protein and 20% from good dietary fat.

This is a moderate approach where you provide your organism with everything it needs to function properly.

To make a meal plan with low carbs you simply adjust the percentages and use the 40-40-20 or the 40-30-30 nutrients to create your daily meals.

The meal planning section in this site will cover all the details how to create meals using nutrient ratios.

This is why I will not go into the details of this process in this article.

Low carb diets are advanced strategies and should never be used at the beginning of your weight loss program.

There are many reasons for this, but the main two are that low carb approaches are unhealthy when used for more than three consecutive days, and plus they always lead to an increase in appetite and massive cravings for carbohydrates.

By dropping your carbohydrate intake moderately you can avoid the negative consequences of conventional low carb diets, and by eating lower carb intakes for three days and then raising your intake back to maintenance level for four consecutive days will help you to avoid the massive carb cravings.

Creating low carb meal plans will take some trial and error, but in the end you will find the optimum approach based on the results you produce from your weight loss program.

Tracking your results using the weekly weight loss chart that I have created will help you to see the results from your nutrition and exercise strategy on a weekly basis.

This is very important because you might be going in the wrong direction in your weight loss program, and not even know about it, until it is too late.
