Is a low carb diet a vegetarian diet?This statement is incorrect. A low carb diet is not equivalent to a vegetarian diet. On the contrary, a low carb diet advocates eating meat. Low carb refers to foods with relatively low carbohydrate content; that is, foods with high fat and protein content are mainly used. In this way, animal-derived foods (meat, eggs, fish and shrimp, etc.), green leafy vegetables and other carbohydrates are mainly selected vegetables with low carb content. Vegetarian food is entirely plant-derived food, but rice noodles are derived from plants and high-carb water. Root vegetables such as potatoes, sweet potatoes and lotus roots are also high-carb foods, which are not acceptable for low-carb diets.
Can you drink alcohol in a low carb / keto diet?If we consider a limited amount of alcohol, the answer is yes. But in this case, it also depends on choosing the right option with low carbohydrates. Depending on what you choose, you may have to adjust your carbs from other sources. This may mean skipping a small amount of fruit or Greek yogurt for having a spirit. However, they don't give back in terms of vitamins and minerals. It could be a waste of your carbs.
How do I start with a low carb diet?1. Get as much information as you can about low carb diets, talk to your doctor, and find out if it is convenient for you to start this kind of diet. 2.

It is safe to change to a low carb lifestyle?If you look at dietary guidelines, it says to avoid fats of any kind, but the science doesn’t support that as a fact. Indeed, obesity rates in the US have increased for the last decades by almost a 40%, since the food pyramid released and the food industry filled up the supermarkets with low-fat foods. Moreover, significant findings show that eating low-fat foods did not reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood sugar or cancer. Also, fat doesn’t trigger an insulin release the way carbs and sugar do.
Is low carb / keto good for pregnant women?This diet hasn’t been studied in pregnant women; although this diet plan has many benefits for most people, it is not for everyone. That is why it is essential first to consult a specialist before starting with low carb.
