Apparently there is such a thing as a no carb diet. Although this way of eating a little too extreme for me, I still find it useful to know what can be considered “free” food in terms of carbohydrates.
Note: I realize that some of these foods aren’t 100% lacking in carbs – but I consider under 1g net carbs per serving to be almost as good as zero. If this idea or any of the individual items don’t fit with your way of eating low carb, please disregard this list or the item in question. Please check nutritional data labels on food before purchasing.
These foods do not naturally contain carbohydrates, apart from those in the vegetable list which contain between 0 and 1g net carb per serving, and heavy cream which is also exceedingly low. For meats and seafood, the key is to go for unprocessed food. As soon as someone processes the meat or fish (think ham, bacon, jerky, burgers) there is a higher chance that they have also added some carbs!
- Beef (check out Omaha Steaks for amazing deals!)
- Organ meats
- Pork rinds (an exception to the processed rule – and see below for lots of ways to use them!)
- Most types of cheese
- Heavy cream (very very low carbohydrates)
