It might be a good idea to pick a day or two out of the week that you’ll try to avoid carbs, so you can start gradually. Cutting out carbs doesn’t mean you’ll go hungry either. You’ll replace the carbs with more vegetables and more protein, which will leave you feeling full for longer without weighing you down. You should notice that you feel more energised over the course of the day too.
