Fiber is very important especially when you are on a low carb diet, because it lowers the negative impact of the consumption of sugar and starch on blood glucose levels. Diet based on high-fiber reduces the risk of developing obesity, heart disease, gastrointestinal disorders and pre-diabetic conditions.

Consume grains unrefined and whole and legumes should be consumed soaked and cooked well. Eat the nuts and seeds in a raw form and exclude white sugar and replace it with stevia or raw honey. If you can avoid processed foods that would be an ideal situation, try eating organic foods.
