Sugar Busters is often called a low-carb diet in disguise, because while there is a focus on cutting some carbohydrates, the diet plan involves about 40 percent of calories coming from high-fiber, low glycemic index carbohydrates.
Grains are high in carbohydrates, and many low-carb proponents believe that since we only started cultivating grains at the onset of agriculture, our bodies have not yet evolved to be able to process them.
Berries: Though fruit is often outlawed at the beginning of a low-carb diet because of the sugar, berries are high in antioxidants and can satisfy a sweet tooth, so they shouldn't be ruled out permanently.
Chicken or beef broth: Having a little clear soup before a meal results in eating fewer calories during the meal, or you can use it as a base for a soup filled with all these other good low-carb foods.
One of the major good points for the South Beach Diet in comparison to other low-carb diets is the emphasis on healthy, plant-based fats like olive oil instead of saturated fats like bacon.
