A low-carb diet limits carbohydrates such as those found in grains, starchy vegetables and fruit and emphasizes foods high in protein and fat. Many types of low-carb diets exist. Each diet has varying restrictions on the types and amounts of carbohydrates you can eat.

Low-carb diets are generally used for losing weight. Some may have health benefits beyond weight loss, such as reducing risk factors associated with diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

Carbohydrates are a type of calorie-providing macronutrient found in many foods and beverages. Many carbohydrates occur naturally in plant-based foods, such as grains. In natural form, carbohydrates can be thought of as complex and fibrous such as the carbohydrates found in whole grains and legumes, or they can be less complex such as those found in milk and fruit.
