Low-Carb Vegetables

Low-Carb Vegetables

Low-Carb vegetables that contain less carbs are the perfect choice when preparing for a fitness (bikini fitness, bodybuilding etc.) competition.
Green vegetables contain the least carbohydrates. Of course, your diet should consist of vegetables of different colors – the more, the better. However, you may opt for green vegetables in preparation for a competition or if you need to get rid of something “extra”.

Cucumber is at the top of the list. Even though it might seem that it is basically water, that’s not true – it also contains a lot of vitamins.
Only 15 Cal and 4g carbs per 100g.

Perfect for the fall season.
16 Cal and 2g carbs per 100g.

Be careful – cabbage can cause bloating.
16 Cal and 3g carbs per 100g.

Chinese cabbage:
12 Cal and 2g carbs per 100g.

Green paprika:
If you choose to consume paprika, only choose green paprika. While their carbohydrate level is the same in all paprika types, the calories differ – and that’s important if you count each gram. 100 grams of green paprika contain 20 Cal and 6g carbohydrates.

I’ll also list how many carbs and calories are contained in other types of paprika:

  • red paprika – 31 Cal and 6g carbs per 100 grams;
  • yellow paprika – 27 Cal ans 6g carbs per 100 grams.

25 Cal and 5g carbs per 100 grams.

Because lettuce is incredibly light, you can eat a lot of it.
12 Cal and 2g carbs per 100 grams.

And of course let’s not forget about dills, spring onions and parsley – because these vegetables are so lightweight when chopped up, we must not even calculate their calories (there’s very, very little of them). However, we do get a huge dose of vitamins.
