Adopting a low-carb approach to weight loss

While WeightWatchers doesn't restrict any foods, we understand that there are times when you may want to reduce your carb intake.

In such cases, we suggest focusing filling proteins like skinless chicken, turkey breast (or considering meat-free options like Quorn), and incorporating generous portions of vegetables and salads into your meals.

Here are five tips for making delicious low-carb recipes:

1. Choose low-carb Ingredients: Opt for alternatives like cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, and almond flour to reduce carb content.

2. Prioritise protein: Include lean meats, fish, tofu, or meat-free alternatives to keep you feeling full and satisfied.

3. Embrace healthy fats: Use sources like avocado, olive oil, nuts, and seeds to add flavour and richness to your dishes.

4. Load up on non-starchy veggies: Fill your plate with veggies like leafy greens, broccoli, and capsicum for fibre, vitamins, and minerals.

5. Experiment with flavours: Enhance your meals with herbs, spices, and seasonings to keep them interesting and flavourful without extra carbs.
