While doing some research for my next book, Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction in 6 Weeks — you can join the teleseminar/webinar program here), I came across a fascinating site from dlife.com, which reveals The 25 Lowest Low-Carb Fruits and Vegetables.
Check out the Nutrition in Every Hue chart, where you also can learn about the many nutrient and benefits you get from your favorite multi-colored fruits and vegetables.
You may be surprised to learn what the lowest low-carb fruit is. (Go here so I don't spoil the surprise.)
Check out the low-carb value of such fruits and vegetables as:
- Iceberg lettuce
- Honeydew melon
As dlife.com tells you, "To help you visualize a rough idea of what amounts to a 50 gram portion, here are some examples: 10 grapes, 1/3 of a medium sized peach, 1/2/ cup chopped celery, or 2 extra long spears of asparagus."
