A Low Carb Diet List For Weight Loss

Here is a low carb diet list you can stick with. Featuring items in several different food groups, as well as substitutes for many things that you have come to rely on as part of your regular diet, this list should help you choose the right carbs for your weight loss efforts.


This is oftentimes the hardest thing for people to give up on a low-carb diet, but there are many options available to satisfy you:

  • Low carb breads
  • Low carb tortillas
  • High fiber crisp breads
  • Flax meal bread


There are several alternatives to traditional pasta that can be implemented in a low carb diet:

  • Shirataki noodles
  • Low carb pastas
  • Whole wheat pasta: cooking this al dente (still slightly firm) leaves it less glycemic and suitable for a moderate carb diet


There are a couple high-fiber cereals on the market that are good for a low carb diet, as well as some other specifically low-carb cereals. Check with your local health food store for their options and availability:

  • All Bran with Extra Fiber
  • Fiber One
  • Flax Z Snack


These are packed with carbs and shoot your blood sugar up faster than any other unprocessed food. Some good substitutes are:

  • Cauliflower
  • Celeriac
  • Turnips


There are a few flours on the market made from nuts and seeds ground into a meal. These can be used for cooking, but generally need different recipes. Some examples of low carb flours are:

  • Almond flour
  • Flax seed meal
  • Coconut flour

Use these substitutions to fill out your low carb diet with foods that you enjoy (but have too many carbs). By substituting these low carb varieties, you can lose weight and still have a bit of the taste that you miss.
