Health Tip: Considering Low-Carb?

Things you should know

(HealthDay News) - Low-carbohydrate diets are rich in proteins (such as meats) and low in carbohydrates (such as breads and pastas).

Because of the limited food choices offered by these plans, some people on a low-carb diet may need to take a multivitamin and a fiber supplement to get needed nutrients, says the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Before starting any diet, the AAFP recommends talking to your doctor. A low-carb diet may not be a good idea for people with diabetes, kidney stones, high cholesterol, or women who are pregnant.
