I’ve never done a no carbs diet but one of my colleagues did. She basically ate everything as normal but just left out the carbs, so sauce without pasta, cheese without bread etc. I’ve been trying to cut back on my evening carbs by replacing carbs with more vegetables and eating things like ratatouille. Quinoa is also now a new favourite!

I’m not really sure what you’re asking/looking for.

For lunch and dinners, have a piece of grilled meat with a side of  spinach salad or something low GI like asparagus. Snacks can be something like nuts or hard boiled eggs, or smoothies made with a low carb protein powder, unsweetened almond milk and a handful of blueberries.  Scrambled egg whites (with 1 whole egg) sprinkled with a bit of feta make a good breakfast.

For me personally, I don’t do no carb, but I do avoid building my meals around carbs. We often have grilled salmon or steak for dinner, with a side of asparagus for dinner, skipping the potatoes, rice or bread. (We do sometimes have the rice and potatoe, but it’s more the exception than the rule. Neither of us are overweight or “dieting”, though I was overweight when I was younger)
