Struggle when tired

Urgh, I'm trying to LC but finding it impossible. Does it not suit everyone? I'm veggie, which makes it hard, and I hate eggs, which doesn't help. I feel really stuck when it comes to meal ideas! But most problematic is that I really crave carbs when I'm tired....which seems to be all of the time! Any help or advice greatly received.

It must be really hard to LC as a veggie - as most of your protein comes from complex carbs like pulses and brown rice and wholegrains.

Why are you low carbing? If it's just to lose weight then you might find you're better off with a different diet, like the Green Slimmers' World diet which is full of veg and carbs. (Their Red diet is more like what people call LC these days.) Have a look at their site online. you can download a free week of Green menu plans to see if it would suit you.

When you're tired, are you drinking enough water?

Thank you wood. Yes, it's to lose the last of the baby weight. I think I do have enough water. I suspect that LC might not be for everyone...

It's much harder if you're a veggie, and especially if you don't like eggs! However, have you looked at Rose Elliott's diet? She has created a vegetarian low carb plan, and her recipe book has some lovely recipes.

Funnily enough, I've had that book for a few years!! It's okay, but nothing ground breaking and lots of it isn't particularly low carb sad

How low carb are you trying to be?!
