120 ZERO CARB FOODS LIST – DITCH CARB

Imagine a zero carb world where nervous counting doesn’t exist. If you’re starting low carb, speeding up ketosis or in Atkins Induction, no carb foods will set you free.
The list of low carb foods is HUGE. Zero carb foods are more limited, especially in the fruit and veggie area. But there are still over 100 choices for rich satisfying meals.

USING THE NO CARB FOODS LIST

Technically speaking, fats are the only foods that are completely zero carb. Even meats and seafood have trace amounts. The foods on this list have very minor amounts of net carbs – fractions of a gram. These foods are so close to zero, most low carbers consider them ‘no carb foods.’
The “almost” zero carb foods are a bit higher, but a single serving from the list is still under 1 net carb.
The only warning: Track your servings. Trace amounts of carbs add up.

TIPS FOR GOING ZERO CARB

You’ve decided to go low – really low. These three easy tips simplify starting a zero carb diet.

1. GIVE YOURSELF A FEW DAYS TO PREPARE.

Check your fridge and cabinets, move any higher carb foods to the side, and fill the space with your favorite no carb foods.
Plan a zero carb grocery trip and stock up!

2. FOCUS ON WHAT YOU ARE ALLOWED TO EAT.

Zero carb foods are savory and delicious. You won’t feel like you’re depriving yourself.

3. HAVE FUN. TRY NEW THINGS.

If you are eating foods with no carbs, you are cooking more often. Having some fun with your food is a good way to build positive associations.
No Carb Food Labels
Many food labels list foods as having zero carbs. Labeling laws allow food companies to print “zero grams” on the label if the food has less than one gram of carbs.
Sugar substitutes, cheeses, eggs and spices are common examples of this situation. If you’re being extra cautious, count them as .5 net carbs per serving.

LIST OF NO CARB FOODS

Below are foods that have zero carbs based on the National Nutrient Database published by the US Department of Agriculture.

ZERO CARB MEAT

High in protein and vitamins, most natural meats have zero carbs. Packaged, cured and processed meats (sausage, hot dogs, deli meat, bacon, etc.) have some carbs due to added flavoring, preservatives or starchy binders. Be sure to check the labels.

Note: Artificial sweeteners can affect insulin the same way sugar does, so watch your progress, use sparingly and with caution.

ZERO CARB ALCOHOL

Use alcohol with caution. Your body burns alcohol before it burns fat for fuel. When you have metabolized all the alcohol, your body will return to burning fat. Alcohol knocks some low carbers out of ketosis for several days after drinking alcohol. Everyone is different, so watch your progress and adjust if necessary.

Read our food list

NO CARB FOOD LABELS

Many food companies make claims about the amount of carbohydrate in their products
If the food has less than one gram of carbs the law allows food companies to print “ zero grams” on label.
The total carbohydrate tells how many grams of carbohydrate are in one serving. Be careful when reading the label. There can be more than one serving in the package, so if you eat more than one serving, you will need to multiply the grams of carbohydrate accordingly.

All Time Best Zero Carb Keto Wraps

I’ve been on a quest to find the best gluten-free low carb tortilla and wrap recipes. It started last year when I developed a recipe for 1 carb tortillas using glucomannon (Konjac) powder and coconut flour. They’re great to use in enchiladas or to fry as chalupa or tostada shells.
Then, I posted one of my favorite recipes for low carb tortillas and wraps from Maria Emmerich of Maria Mind Body Health. Her recipe, which uses almond flour and psyllium powder, was my go-to for wraps or soft tacos.  Next, I shared a fantastic recipe for zucchini tortillas. This recipe has changed lives – for real. All of these recipes are great low carb options, but they require specialty ingredients.
BUT  THIS  RECIPE!!!!  (Jumping down with excitement!)
This recipe is made from regular ingredients you can find in any store.  And it is completely AHhhhh-mazing.
These low carb wraps are super easy to prepare. And like I said, are made from regular ingredients, but what’s even better is the fact that they are ALMOST ZERO CARB per each. Yes, really. And two wraps top out at 1 net carb!
I know. You’re thinking I’m pulling your leg. Right now you’re probably thinking that this is just too good to be true. I bet you think I am full of baloney; that I just looked you straight in the eye and told you a “whopper”. Nope. These almost zero carb wraps are 100% legit. And, I am so excited!
How can this be? How can these low carb tortillas be almost zero carb?  They are made with pork rinds. Yep. Chicharones. And pork rinds are a great low carb source of protein, contain heart healthy fats, and are full of gelatin. Gelatin, as you may know, is good for you. Read more about the benefits of gelatin in this great article on Chris Kressler’s site.
Because this recipe uses no nuts, it’s perfect for the Induction Phase and all phases of the Atkins Diet. 
This recipe was inspired by all of the recipes for low carb pork rind pancakes and this recipefrom The Primative Palate. Go check out their great Paleo site. I like using these wraps for keto breakfast tacos, with chicken fajitas, green chile stew and traditional beef fajitas.

THESE ALMOST ZERO CARB WRAPS ARE TRACE CARBS PER EACH OR 1 NET CARB PER 2.

[NOTE] I’m often asked how these wraps taste. I use plain pork rinds and think these wraps are very neutral in taste.

These amazing low carb, Almost Zero Carb Wraps have trace carbs per each and 1 net carb for two. They are gluten-free, and require no specialty ingredients. The Perfect ketogenic wrap!
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 – 4 ounce (113 g) bag of plain pork rinds, crushed
  • ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 4 ounces (113 g) cream cheese, softened
  • 6 large eggs*** (see note)
  • ¾ cup (117.44 ml/ 170 g) water
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Food Processor Method: Place the pork rinds in a food processor and process until they become a fine powder. Add the baking soda and salt and give it a little pulse to mix. Add the eggs and cheese and process until smooth and thick. Add the water and blend until all of the ingredients are completely incorporated. Pour into a bowl and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Hand Mixer Method: Put the pork rinds into a large zip-loc bag and crush in batches with a rolling pin or the smooth side of a meat mallet. They should be completely pulverized into a powder. Place the pulverized pork rinds into a medium bowl and stir in the baking soda and salt. In a smaller bowl, blend the cream cheese with one egg until combined and smooth. Add another egg and mix. Add the egg and cheese mixture to the pork rind crumbs and add the rest of the eggs. Blend with the hand mixer until smooth. Add the water and mix until thoroughly combined. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Preheat a pancake griddle over medium heat. When hot, oil the griddle and then gently wipe-off the excess with a paper towel.
  4. Using a ¼ cup measure, pour the batter onto the skillet and spread into a 5 inch circle with the back of a spoon. I dip my spoon in water to prevent it from sticking to the batter. Cook like you would a pancake.
NOTES
Make sure to spread the batter with a wet spoon or you will end up with a thick pancake that will not serve well as a wrap. Thin the batter with a little more water if you notice it getting a little too thick to spread easily.

*If this recipe is too eggy for you the first time you make it, try using 3 whole eggs, 3 egg whites and 3 tablespoons of oil.

Zero-carb flapjacks

low-carb-flapjacks

These protein-packed flapjacks come to us courtesy of Sally-Ann Creed’s ‘Delicious Low Carb’, a new book from the co-author of The Real Meal Revolution. These flapjacks are easy, affordable to make, and free from nuts and seeds. Sally recommends using them as a vehicle for other things (like a wrap, or a taco) – or even as a sort of blini to serve topped with smoked salmon or cream cheese.

Serves: Makes about 8 flapjacks or 2 large pancakes

Ingredients

 

30 g good quality whey protein concentrate powder
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
2 teaspoons erythritol powder
1 large egg
1 teaspoon macadamia nut oil or melted butter
4 tablespoons water
Butter, for frying (can use coconut oil)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or powder

Method

1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, place the egg, oil and water. Beat well.
3. Now mix the wet and dry mixes together. The consistency should be fairly thin.
4. Place a large frying pan onto the stove over medium to high heat and add the butter.
5. Place spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan and either make flapjacks or big pancakes. Treat them like normal pancakes or flapjacks and flip the moment bubbles appear on the surface.

I am carefully tracking what I am eating. Here is what I have learned so far about how my blood sugar reacts to food.

No Carb Food Labels

Many food labels list foods as having zero carbs. Labeling laws allow food companies to print “zero grams” on the label if the food has less than one gram of carbs.
Sugar substitutes, cheeses, eggs and spices are common examples of this situation. If you’re being extra cautious, count them as .5 net carbs per serving.

Zero Carb Binders

Unflavored, powdered gelatin is a high protein, zero carb food. Gelatin strengthens hair and nails, helps skin stay elastic and helps with sleep.
Low carb guru, Dana Carpender has excellent ideas for adding gelatin:

“I intend to start adding gelatin to things, too. In particular, I plan to mix gelatin into ground meat dishes, from burgers to meat loaves to chili.
Why not? It’s flavorless. I’m betting in the burgers and meat loaves it holds moisture, and acts as a binder.
I’ve also started adding pork rind crumbs to a lot of ground meat recipes, not only for flavor, but for the gelatin.”
– from Hold The Toast “Gelatin Blowing My Mind”)

Use zero carb gelatin as a binder for ground meat, or add to lemonade for a filling, protein boost.

Finding foods with zero carbs isn’t hard. Use our zero carb and (almost) zero carb food lists, read package labels carefully and be pleasantly surprised at all the options.

Using the No Carb Foods List

Technically speaking, fats are the only foods that are completely zero carb. Even meats and seafood have trace amounts.
What You Must Know:
The foods on this list have very minor amounts of net carbs – fractions of a gram. These foods are so close to zero, most low carbers consider them ‘no carb foods.’
The “almost” zero carb foods are a bit higher, but a single serving from the list is still under 1 net carb.
One Warning:
Track your servings. Trace amounts of carbs still add up.

Tips for Going Zero Carb

You’ve decided to go low – really low. These three easy tips simplify starting your zero carb diet.

Give yourself a few days to prepare.

Check your fridge and cabinets, move any higher carb foods to the side, and fill the space with your favorite no carb foods.
Plan a zero carb grocery trip and stock up!

Focus on what you ARE allowed to eat.

Zero carb foods are savory and delicious. You won’t feel like you’re depriving yourself.

Have fun. Try new things.

If you are eating foods with no carbs, you are cooking more often. Having some fun with your food is a good way to build positive associations.

Real Life Zero Carb Food Log

What’s it really like to go zero carb? Rebecca Latham of Low Carb Better Health went zero carb, keeping food logs for six weeks:

Rebecca-zero-carb-foods    I am eating meat, a small amount of dairy, some healthy fats and I am drinking water only.
I have also been eating Fat Bombs, which contain almond butter, cocoa power and Stevia.
I am carefully tracking what I am eating. Here is what I have learned so far about how my blood sugar reacts to food.

No Carb Food Labels

Many food labels list foods as having zero carbs. Labeling laws allow food companies to print “zero grams” on the label if the food has less than one gram of carbs.
Sugar substitutes, cheeses, eggs and spices are common examples of this situation. If you’re being extra cautious, count them as .5 net carbs per serving.

List of Foods with No Carbs

There are zero carb foods in almost every food group, so it’s easy to enjoy a variety of foods when going no carb.

Zero Carb Binders

Unflavored, powdered gelatin is a high protein, zero carb food. Gelatin strengthens hair and nails, helps skin stay elastic and helps with sleep.
Low carb guru, Dana Carpender has excellent ideas for adding gelatin:

Dana Carpender zero carb foods    “I intend to start adding gelatin to things, too. In particular, I plan to mix gelatin into ground meat dishes, from burgers to meat loaves to chili.
Why not? It’s flavorless. I’m betting in the burgers and meat loaves it holds moisture, and acts as a binder.
I’ve also started adding pork rind crumbs to a lot of ground meat recipes, not only for flavor, but for the gelatin.”
– from Hold The Toast “Gelatin Blowing My Mind”)

Use zero carb gelatin as a binder for ground meat, or add to lemonade for a filling, protein boost.

Zero Carb Beverages

These beverages are zero carb:

  • Water
  • Sparkling Water
  • Club Soda
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Diet Soda (watch the artificial sweetener)

Zero Carb Sweeteners

Companies advertise aspartame, sucralose, saccharine and stevia as no carb sugar substitutes. However – the powder and granular ones usually contain trace amounts of carbohydrate fillers.
It only takes a little to go a long way. Use a sprinkle.

Note: Artificial sweeteners can affect insulin the same way sugar does, so watch your progress, use sparingly and with caution.

Liquid Sucralose Sweetener

EZ-Sweetz liquid sweetener is made of sucralose and has no bitter aftertaste. Zero carb, zero calories, zero impact.

Liquid De-Bittered Stevia

EZ-Sweetz’s de-bittered stevia blend has no unpleasant aftertaste. This blend has none of the characteristic bitterness of typical stevia sweeteners.
EZ-Sweetz Liquid De-Bittered Stevia

Zero Carb Alcohol

Use alcohol with caution. Your body burns alcohol before it burns fat for fuel. When you have metabolized all the alcohol, your body will return to burning fat.
Alcohol knocks some low carbers out of ketosis for several days after drinking alcohol. Everyone is different, so watch your progress and adjust if necessary.

  • Gin
  • Rum (unflavored)
  • Vodka (unflavored)
  • Whiskey
  • Tequila
  • Scotch

This Zero Carbs,Four-Ingredient Bread Is Breaking The Internet

Bread without gluten, carbs, and hardly any sugar? No way, you say? Well, think again.
In a recent trend currently exploding on Pinterest, so-called ‘Cloud Bread’ is becoming a bit of a phenomenon. The bread, named after its cloud-like texture, is, unlike most other breads, not only low-carb and high in protein, but also completely gluten free.
Sounds too good to be true? Yeah, we thought so too – until we made some.
With four simple ingredients – eggs, cream cheese, cream of tartar, and sweetener – you can easily whip up your own batch. And while the combination of the aforementioned four might not sound all that appealing, it actually yields melt-in-your-mouth patties that work equally well as hamburger buns as it does toasted and topped with whatever you fancy.
Image result for This Zero Carbs,Four-Ingredient Bread Is Breaking The Internet
And Cloud Bread is also getting the thumbs up from a variety of health experts who claim the health benefits from eating the buns are impressive.
Speaking to Women’s Health about the new foodie trend, UK based dietitian Deborah Malkoff-Cohen said: “Cloud bread contains numerous nutrients not found in traditional bread, including vitamin A, vitamin D, phosphorus, choline, and selenium.”
And you don’t have to stop at four ingredients if you don’t want to. “Experiment with your batch by adding nuts, seeds or spices and topping it with a variety of ingredients, such as avocado and bacon or strawberries and cream cheese.”
Be aware though, that Cloud Bread lacks one important thing we need to get enough of through our diet: Fibre. Meaning, if you swap your regular loaf for this, it is important that you get adequate fiber from other sources, like fruit, veggies, and other whole grains.
Fancy making your own Cloud Bread? Here you go:
Ingredients
3 eggs, separated
3 Tablespoons cream cheese
¼ teaspoon baking powder (or cream of tartar)
Optional: 1 Tablespoon Honey or some natural sweetener, salt, garlic powder, rosemary
Directions
Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius
Separate the eggs, there must be no yolk in the white.
In one bowl, mix together the egg yolks, cream cheese and honey until smooth.
In the second bowl add 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder (or cream of tartar if you prefer, I just didn’t like the taste of cream of tartar) to the whites and beat the whites on high speed until they are fluffy, form a nice peaks and hold their peaks. Beat the egg whites until like a whipped cream consistency.
Slowly fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites and mix carefully, you don’t want to break the fluffiness of the egg whites too much.
Do this as quickly as possible or the mixture may start melting – Spoon the mixture into 10-12 even rounds on the baking sheet, sprinkle with rosemary or your favorite spices and put it in the oven.
Bake for 17-20 minutes on the middle rack. Then broil (cook the top) for 1 minute and watch it until they become nice and golden brown. At this point make sure you watch them so they don’t burn
Remove from the oven and let cool and enjoy!

43 Zero Carb Foods And Six Tips For Eating Zero Carb

There is such a thing as a no carb diet.  Note: I realize that some of these foods aren’t 100% lacking in carbs – but I consider under 1g net carbs per serving to be almost as good as zero. If this idea doesn’t fit with your way of eating, please disregard this list. Please check nutritional data labels on food before purchasing.
All these foods do not naturally contain carbohydrates, apart from those in the vegetable list which contain between 0 and 1g net carb per serving. For meats and seafood, the key is to go for unprocessed food. As soon as someone processes it (think ham, bacon, jerky, burgers) there is a higher chance that they have also added some carbs!
Meat:

  • Chicken
  • Beef
  • Turkey
  • Duck
  • Veal
  • Lamb
  • Pork
  • Organ meats
  • Goose
  • Pork rinds (an exception to the processed rule!)

Seafood:

  • Fish
  • Shellfish
  • Mollusks

Dairy:

  • Butter
  • Margarine
  • Most types of cheese
  • Heavy cream (very very low carbs)

Eggs
Oil:

  • Coconut oil
  • Olive oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Sesame oil
  • Avocado oil
  • Safflower oil
  • Corn oil
  • Peanut oil

Vegetables (most contain between 0 and 1g net carb per serving):

  • Leafy greens (lettuce, arugula, spinach, swiss chard, kale, turnip greens, bok choy etc)
  • Cucumber
  • Radish
  • Fresh herbs
  • Alfalfa sprouts
  • Chicory family (endive, escarole, radicchio)

And don’t forget about Shirataki Noodles!!

Six Tips for Eating Zero Carb

1) Eat only from the animal kingdom. Meat, eggs, and dairy. No carbs.
2) Stay full.  Eat meat/eggs/dairy until you are full and you won’t be as tempted to eat other things.
3) Eat enough fat. Fat will keep you full and will you give you plenty of energy.
4) Avoid all sweet tastes. It will be the quickest way to kill the cravings  that you may have for sweets.
5) Drink water when you’re thirsty.  Seltzer waters, unsweetened tea, and unsweetened coffee work for plenty of zero-carbers, as well.  Each individual has to determine for themselves what works best.  But regular water will definitely work for everyone, every time.  And I have found no benefit to forcing down gallons of water each day.  Just drink if you’re thirsty.  And stop when you’re not.
6) No need to count calories.  Eat when you’re hungry.  Stop eating when you’re not.
And if you’re only interested in reducing (not eliminating) the sugar and carbs in your diet, that’s great, too!  Any little bit of sugar that you can keep out of your diet is a win! But, eating a zero-carb diet is the quickest way to eliminate your sugar-cravings, give you the energy that need, and help you to lose weight.
