Low-Carb Meal Plan

Your Low-Carb (High-Protein) Day of Eating

Dinner: Italian-Style Stuffed Peppers

If you're looking to lose weight, cutting back on carbs can be part of an effective strategy. For those who want to shed a few pounds, Manhattan-based nutritionist and registered dietitian Shira Lenchewski recommends that the carb-heaviest meal should be breakfast, "trending smaller as the day goes on" — and this plan does just that.

Most low-carb plans recommend eating between 50 and 150 grams of carbs per day, and this day of eating falls on the lower end of spectrum with 64.2 grams of carbohydrates, 1,236 calories, and a whopping 98 grams of protein. Try it out for yourself one day this week!
