Adopting a low-carbohydrate diet can have numerous benefits for people with diabetes, including weight loss and better control of blood glucose levels.

Anecdotal proof of the diet’s efficacy have been reported on the Forum, while scientific studies continue to provide further credence to the diet.

However, a low-carb diet can have its bumpy moments. Meticulous management is required, and reducing your intake of processed foods and takeaways is important to ensure the fat you eat – which can replace the carbs you lose – comes from natural sources.

The 30 Day Low Carb Meal Plan is among the cookbooks that can help diversify your diet, but ensuring you eat tasty low-carb food all the time can be tricky, especially if time is against you.

Here are some of the moments that can prove problematic for people on a low-carb diet.
