Green is an all-you-can-eat list - you choose anything you like without worrying about the carbohydrate content as all the foods will be between 0 to 5g/100g.

It will be almost impossible to overdo your carbohydrate intake by sticking to this group of foods. Overeating protein is not recommended, so eat a moderate amount of animal protein at each meal. Include as much fat as you are comfortable with - bearing in mind that Banting is high in fat. Caution: even though these are all-you-can-eat foods, only eat when hungry, stop when full and do not overeat. The size and thickness of your palm without fingers is a good measure for a serving of animal protein.
