Low Carb Scarsdale Diet Recipes

Scarsdale Diet recipes can definitely help to keep you excited about this diet which will improve your results.

There are some important rules that you must follow in order to stay within the confines of this diet. First of all, eat only what is assigned for each day. Next, be sure not to consume any alcoholic beverages. If you must have an in between meal snack, you may only eat carrots or celery, but you may eat as much as you like. It is also important to note what beverages are allowed while on this diet plan. These include coffee, tea, club soda, diet sodas, and water. Only artificial sweeteners, and lemon, are allowed.

  • Half a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar P a g e | 53 Copyright ©2011 – All Rights Reserved
  • Half a cup of soy flour
  • One and a half cups of whole wheat flour

  • One-fourth cup of gluten flour (this is a healthier alternative to your usual flour)

Directions:
