Carb-Conscious Produce Bag

Field Goods offers a Carb-Conscious Produce Bag that includes low-carbohydrate produce items (under 15 grams per 100 gram serving) that help support a low-carb diet.

A low-carb diet is generally used for losing weight. Some low-carb diets may have health benefits beyond weight loss, such as reducing risk factors associated with type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Low-carb diets generally exclude or limit most grains, legumes, fruits, breads, sweets, pastas, and starchy vegetables, and sometimes nuts and seeds. For people who are physically active or want to maintain their weight, a range of 100-150 grams of carbs per day may be optimal. For people who have metabolic problems and need to lose weight quickly, going under 50 grams per day is a good idea.

An important component of a healthy low-carb diet is including dietary fiber. Dietary fiber — found mainly in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes — is probably best known for its ability to prevent or relieve constipation. But foods containing fiber can provide other health benefits as well, such as helping to maintain a healthy weight and lowering your risk of diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer.
