Low Carb Induction Under 20g Meals

If you're starting out in low carb dieting, in the induction phase, you are staying below 20g of carbs a day. This is to jump start your weight loss quickly. Note that low carbing never says to STAY at 20g for your entire lifetime. This is primarily to help you shake off your old addictions and clear your body of sugar.

The trick is not to worry about something being "only" for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Mix and match. Eat what you're in the mood for, when you want to eat it. Snack often - and drink a TON of water. Your weight loss should NOT be water loss. You should drink ample water to keep your system well hydrated.
