Some reduced carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Dietary fiber is essential
Lowering the carbohydrates in your diet often leads to reduction in fiber as well. Look for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carb recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbohydrates. Your body requires energy, and carbs are a very efficient energy source. A reduced carb diet needs more care in managing your energy intake, as any energy contributed by fat or protein is much slower acting.
