Let's be honest for a minute. High-carb foods taste good and make us feel good, but like anything, there can be too much of a good thing. Whether you are just trying to lose weight or have a serious condition such as diabetes, a low-carb diet can be very beneficial to your health. However, it can be tough sticking to it when you are busy as most quickly prepared meals are loaded with carbs and sugars.
