If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Don't miss meals
Most low carbohydrate recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Our bodies need energy, and carbohydrates are a quick acting source of energy.

* Don't forget the fiber
Decreasing the carbs in your meals often results in fiber reduction as well. Check for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
