“Me and Lamar (Peters) were supposed to

getting out the way. It left me with a wide open

There are multiple low-carb
diets, but to summarize, in general
they focus on proteins, including
meat, plant-based proteins, poultry,
fish, eggs and some nonstarchy
vegetables. They tend to exclude or
limit most grains, legumes, breads,
sweets, pastas and starchy vegeta-
