Low-carbohydrate diets or low carb diets are nutritional programs that advocate restricted carbohydrate consumption, based on research that ties carbohydrate consumption with increased blood insulin levels, and overexposure to insulin with metabolic syndrome (the most recognized symptom of which is obesity). Under these dietary programs, foods high in carbohydrates (such as sugar, grains, and starches) are limited or replaced with foods containing a higher percentage of proteins, fats, and/or fiber..
