If you are trying to follow a low carbohydrate diet, you are in for a treat. But first let us understand what a low-carb diet is. According to some weight-loss experts and fitness coaches, carbs get metabolised too soon, leaving you hungry soon after. You start craving for a quick snack which results in calorie-overload. Now a low-carb diet, does not restrict the consumption of carbs, but asks you to monitor it. Another interesting feature about this diet is choosing the ‘right’ kind of carb. Foods rich in fibre and complex carbs do not breakdown too soon and thus keep you satiated for long.
