Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Low Fat Low Carb?

Low Fat Low Carb is the name of our brand. We do not promote any one diet.

Instead, we pride ourselves on being able to offer what we call Foundation Recipes that you can use as the base for your meals – no matter what diet you’re on or eating-style you follow!

Want to add a little quinoa to the recipe? Go ahead! Want to add a serving of brown rice? Why not! Or maybe you’re just going to add some avocado to increase your fat intake…

As long as it fits in with your goals, you can make it happen.

How Do I Use This Website?

We have so many sections of the site for you to take advantage of!

First of all, you may want to become a member. That will give you access to ALL the tools and pages on the site. Don’t worry, becoming a member is completely FREE!

If you’re primarily looking for recipes you can hover the mouse over the Recipes menu tab, and then select which category suits you the most.

If you don’t follow any type of diet, and you’re just looking to stay healthy – you can click the Recipe tab and you’ll be taken to a page displaying all of our recipes.

Meal Planner: If you’re really dedicated to eating healthy and staying consistent try our Meal Planner. You can choose the recipes you want to prepare in advance, and schedule them on the days that make the most sense.

For example, your Son has football practise at 7pm, coming home from work and having to figure out what’s for dinner is the last thing you want to do. Save yourself some time during the week by scheduling your meals in advance and know exactly what’s for dinner for the entire week – or even the entire month!

Tips & Tricks: Perhaps you’re fairly new to the kitchen and you’re not sure how to prepare dishes properly. That’s ok, we’re here to help you every step of the way. Not only do the pages for each specific recipe have a video that shows you the cooking process, but you can check out our Tips & Tricks section to watch videos that teach you everything from cutting a bell pepper correctly, all the way to dying your eggs different colors!

Blog: Are you looking to educate yourself and try to understand healthy eating a little more? In our Blog section, you can find articles ranging from cooking advice for different types of foods to nutritional information to better arm you in the fight against poor health!

Community Forums: Maybe you’ve experienced what it’s like to have Celiac disease or cardiovascular disease, maybe you’ve already got your nutrition down and it’s helped you live a healthier life. If that’s the case, then perhaps you’d like to share your story, your experiences and the lessons you learned with others – to inspire and encourage them to continue on their journey.

The Recipe I Tried Didn't Work Out. What Went Wrong?

When cooking meals, there are many factors involved, so it’s common to have some issues when you’re first trying recipes.

Don’t get discouraged, though!

Taking the path to a healthier lifestyle is a journey and coming across obstacles is just a part of that. Have fun, even if things didn’t work out this time, try again and just like anything else – practise will improve the outcome!

Don’t be afraid to switch the recipe up a bit either, to suit your personal tastes and the diet you’re following.
