Low Carb Meal for Weight Loss


Posted on February 2nd, 2010 by Matt Schoeneberger

Here’s a simple meal idea I like.

ground beef

guac/salsa

spinach

butter

sea salt/pepper

Brown ground beef in a pan with butter. Mix in guacamole or salsa and serve in a big bowl with a generous amount of spinach.

Here are screen shots of the macronutrient and calorie content when the meal is entered on Fitday.com (click to see bigger versions):

It’s very tasty and very low-carb. The Fitday count is 7.3 g of fiber out of that 8.2 total carbs which puts the net total at about 1 g.

If this is your only meal for the day, or one of two, you could adjust the quantities to up the overall calorie content.

    Yummy – and you could probably substitute ground turkey and throw in some taco seasoning – muy bien!

    Sounds pretty tasty. I’m curious, what program are you using to determine the nutritional value? It looks lie it would be an excellent resource to have.
