If you’re looking for a way to quickly lose some weight, the slow carb diet is a great option. This diet allows you to eat from a limited list of foods for six days out of the week. That means you’ll need to come up with some meals using those exclusive ingredients for each meal out of the day.
With the help of these slow carb lunch ideas, you can enjoy some delicious low carb dishes every day of the week.
What is the Slow Carb Diet? (SCD)
The Slow Carb Diet is Tim Ferriss’ unique approach to healthy eating to produce weight loss long term.
The idea is to choose slow digesting carbs (like black beans and whole grains), lean meats and animal protein, low-starch veggies, healthy fats, legumes, and spices. These complex foods are also on the low glycemic index. This helps your overall blood sugar levels.
On this diet you also restrict highly-processed, high fructose fruits and simple carbs like white potatoes.
The otherwise restrictive diet allows for one cheat meal a week.
The delicious combination of ingredients in this kale and garbanzo bean salad from Plant Based on a Budget is a filling lunch idea while you’re on the slow carb diet.

Before meeting Kim and Kalee, I was struggling with my fitness goals. I would start out strong, but I just didn’t stay on track. With their motivation and support, I have not only stayed on track myself, but now I’m helping others reach their fitness and health goals! I’ve never felt or looked better, and I love being a part of their coaching team!
Before I met Kim & Kalee about 6 years ago, I had hit a plateau and felt very frustrated. I was doing all the ‘right’ things and still not seeing results. The girls introduced me to a whole new world of workouts! With their guidance and encouragement I found the workout I wanted to do and haven’t looked back! Through this process I have also gained 2 wonderful friends. Their love and knowledge is greatly appreciated.
Kim and Kalee Sorey are absolutely awesome! They gave me the confidence to become a coach and have been valuable mentors ever since. I strive to emulate the accepting and easy going approach that has made them wildly successful.
