The issue of low carb food pyramid more often than not has been a subject of much discussion. We, of course, know what we eat and other general portions. However, do we know what our food pyramids look like? For example, if we are low carbohydrate dieters, do we know what our low carb menu looks like? Is a low carb food pyramid effective? The answers depend on our physical condition and what our doctors recommend to us. We know that there are a lot of low carb food selections and the right answer can be quite various.
Since our physical condition is different from that of other persons, we cannot find one perfect way of diet that is best for all of us. The USDA Food Pyramid, for example, tries to tailor guidelines to unique individuals. The pyramid has a lot of lists of carbohydrate – which is can be too much. Thus, it is unfortunately not suitable for us if we are low carb dieters or having difficulty in processing sugar, or suffering diabetes/diabetic related problems.
We know that carbohydrate breaks down into sugar inside our body. Like the USDA’s suggestion, a low carb food pyramid will not give precise advice for all of us, but to give an illustrated guide for us whose physical condition are better with less carbohydrate.
With guidance from the food pyramid, we are recommended to eat foods categorized on the base of the pyramid the most, and lesser for those that are on higher parts. If we plan to apply low carb food pyramid to trim down your weight, there’s a recently developed plan called Okinawa Diet Plan by Dr. Bradley and Craig Wilcox as a good option to start off with.

The pyramid presents low-glycemic index good carbs with beneficial proteins and healthy fats. The pyramid is built by caloric density. Foods with low caloric density satisfy us more. Thus, we can lessen eating unhealthy foods. This will also help us to lose some weight and stay healthy at the same time. Most of fruits, such as apples and bananas, have a caloric density of 0.59 to 0.6. Brown rice has a caloric density of 1.2 while bacon has a calorie density of 5.56.
Low carb dieters are advised to eat lower starch vegetables, meat, pork, egg, chicken, fish, seafood, and unsaturated fats. Further lists can include nuts, cheese, plain yogurt, and poly-unsaturated fats in moderation. Other may comprise of berries, legumes, and low glycemic fruits less; and restrain from eating sweets, grains, starches, bread, potatoes, pasta and rice.
