Vegetables Good diet
Low-carb diets generally consist of between 50 and 150 grams of carbohydrates per day. Many low-carb weight loss diets encourage you to consume large amounts of non-starchy vegetables and high-protein foods. However, if you don’t like vegetables you do have other options. Some low-carb diets allow you to choose from a variety of different low-carb options based on your food preferences.
Low-carb diets are effective for weight loss because they generally result in a reduced-calorie intake, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Because low-carb diets are often high in protein and fats, these diets often help you feel full and satisfied while consuming fewer calories. However, since consuming too few carbohydrates long-term may cause negative side effects, it’s usually a good idea to consume at least the Institute of Medicine’s recommended dietary allowance, or RDA, for carbohydrates, which is at least 130 grams of carbohydrates every day.
Although non-starchy vegetables provide heart-healthy fiber, vitamins and minerals, there are many other low-carb foods. High-protein foods are usually encouraged when following a low-carb diet. Examples include unbreaded, skinless chicken, turkey and fish, seafood, lean cuts of beef, tofu, eggs, low-fat cottage cheese, reduced-calorie cheese, almonds, peanuts, walnuts and peanut butter.
High-fat foods containing healthy, unsaturated fats are also emphasized in most low-carb diets, although some low-carb diets include saturated fats as well. Healthy high-fat, low-carb alternatives to vegetables include olive oil, canola oil, walnut oil, flaxseed oil and soft tub margarines. Coconut oil is a source of saturated fat. However, according to a study published in a 2009 edition of "Lipids, " coconut oil supplementation may help improve HDL cholesterol levels and reduce abdominal fat when following a reduced-calorie diet.
Vegetables are a valuable source of fiber when following a low-carb diet. With the exception of nuts many other low-carb foods contain little, if any, dietary fiber. If your fiber intake is too low you may become constipated. The U.S. Department of Agriculture encourages men to consume at least 38 grams of fiber every day and women to consume at least 25 grams of fiber each day.

Is the poop softer? Do you know what caused the constipation?
Poop is always a big issue in the pet forum. I've always kept Toby on the same good quality food. I limit treats and feed him no human food other than some raw vegetables occasionally and a piece of fruit here and there. Regular exercise, to keep moving, is also important.
The first thing I mention to the vet every year, for his wellness exam, is his poop is extremely regular and firm, but not hard.
Never had diarrhea once...thank dog.

The findings were published online in the journal Archives of Neurology.
The dietary pattern is characterized by eating more salad dressing, nuts, tomatoes, fish, poultry, cruciferous vegetables, fruits, and dark and green leafy vegetables and lesser quantities of red meat, organ meat, butter, and high-fat dairy products
