It can be difficult switching from the way we’re encouraged to eat towards a low or lower carb diet.
We’re encouraged to base our diet on carbohydrates, and fat (of any kind) is vilified. Eating on the go is even more difficult – just have a look at what’s available on any high street or in any railway station – carbs, carbs and more carbs!
So when people decide to follow a low carb diet, it can be difficult.
It can be difficult if you’re reliant on pre-prepared foods or ready meals, because most of these are also based around carbs.
It can be difficult if you don’t want to eat differently from the rest of your family.
And there’s often a perception that it can be expensive. After all, isn’t the Atkins diet all about living off steak, cream and bacon?*
So my blog aims to help show that it doesn’t have to be difficult. Nor does it have to be expensive. Whilst I may not post daily, the idea is to blog my meals and food, at home, on the go and eating out, so show how it’s possible to make your diet a lower carb one.
* No it isn’t. But hey, where’s the newsworthy story in reporting that?!
