    Do you think it's possible to follow a low-carb diet if you're veggie?

    Soya mince is good, and and also you can eat cottage cheese in small quantities. Some are fairly low carbs, high protein.

    Oh, also, avocados are very low carb, but high (but good) fat. Little protein.

    Oooohhhhh this thread was just what I was looking for. :)

    I've got 2 stone to lose after reaching a stop on my old sw diet. However, the eating meat bit was going to be a struggle switching to low carb lol

    Feeling quite motivated now xx

    ive just got the rose elliot book the vegetarian low carb diet. Quorn seems to be a bit higher in carbs than recommended for phase one, i know its fairly low carb but for the amount of carbs you have allocated for phase one, you dont get to eat much if you stock up on quorn. Also its recommended that low carb shouldnt also be low fat. It should be fairly high fat, because you eat good fats not bad ones
