Low Carb

Low Carb

The term low carb has become rather commonplace and a large part of our vocabulary as of late. It is rather impossible to discuss dieting without someone saying that they are staying away from carbs. Since its mainstream introduction approximately 10 years ago, low carb diets have been sweeping the nation. From the ultimate carbohydrate-eliminating diet of Atkins to the more liberal South Beach Diet, everywhere we turn we hear about carbohydrates.

In recent years, there has been a noticeable difference on the shelves of our grocery stores. Everywhere we turn we see food labels that boast the slogan “Low Carb” or “Atkins-Friendly”.  Foods that before were not high on our list of “diet foods” suddenly have moved their way up as a result of the low carb takeover. Items that we never would have considered healthy are being consumed at rapid rates.

Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., founder of BistroMD knows the benefits of a low carb diet, but also that there is more to it than just eating foods that are low in carbohydrates. To make low carb dieting effective and healthy, Dr. Cederquist has created BistroMD, a carbohydrate-conscious plan that will help you lose weight, but also ensures that you are getting all of the necessary nutrients to keep you healthy.
