Our Favorite Go-To Low-Carb/No-Carb Foods

Our Favorite Go-To Low-Carb/No-Carb Foods | The LOOP Blog

Are there times when you want or need to eat something with low or no carb, but aren’t sure what to eat? We asked our friends in the community to tell us their favorite low or no carb go-to diabetes foods. We received hundreds of great food options, and listed them by category for you to reference. Although everyone has different nutritional needs, we hope you find these lists helpful, and yourself trying a variety of these delicious foods! Be sure to look up the carb count before eating and give yourself insulin if needed, and talk with your healthcare team to determine the right dietary plan for you.
