January 21 2011: Slow Carb Foods List

In Journey
Jan 22nd, 2011

Hey Guys,

Just thought I would lay an easy post down on a Slow Carb Foods List as it is my anniversary with my beautiful girlfriend and I am taking her out.

But before I go I thought that there is one thing people are always interested when they are on a diet. It is a Slow Carb Foods List. A list of what Foods they can eat and what they can not.

Questions like am I allowed Bacon? Mushrooms or Sour Cream? Are all bit Slow Carb Questions.

So What I thought I would start with is a list of foods you are Allowed. Then I would add in some in the Middle foods. To get started though Just wanted to point out some Big No No foods.

Not Allowed on the Slow Carb Diet

  • Fruit – Only Exceptions Tomato, Cucumber and Avocado
  • White Flour
  • Bread
  • Chips – Corn or Potato
  • Rice
  • Potato
  • Whole Wheat Products
  • Wheat at all
  • Sugar
  • Any other White Carbs

If it has any of the above in then it is an automatic no no Unless you are doing the Tim Ferris Version which you can have the above on your Slow Carb Binge Day.

Foods on the edge

Ok guys just wanted to add in here Dairy. I have read some books saying that some dairy is fine. But others that dis allow it. When you look at a Paleo Diet Dairy is forbidden for most people apart from Cottage Cheese.

I am not as harsh so Do have some Cheese & Sour Cream in my life. But I don’t drink Milk

    Are Haricot and Black Turtle beans allowed?

  • Mark

    Does anyone still do this diet???? I started 6 1/2 weeks ago and have lost 24 lbs. It’s the first diet that has ever stuck. I’m 1/3 of the way to my goal.
    Every site I go to only contains comments that are years old. Was it a fad that just died? Or is there still a slow carb diet community out there?

  • TheHealthyMonk

    If it works it works! Keep it up

    Great stuff. The slow carb community does exist but not as much as it used to I think. I use many principles still but am not a full timer to be honest. But I 100% believe in what it is. The diet is not that revolutionary the more I have read as it is mainly a High Protein/fat diet with a few added extras so I will live on.

    Hi, I started this diet 2 weeks ago, and I bought a bag of green pea flour (at an organic store, which means that the only ingredient in the bag is grounded green peas. However, according to two blogs that I found today, green pea/chick pea/lima bean flours are not allowed on the diet. Do you know of this is true, and if so, why would these be forbidden?
