You can always try low carb..lol. Plain meat, fish, fowl. Fresh fruit, and veggies. Cheese, nuts, seeds. Butter, mayo, and oils.
If you want to not go low carb, you can just eat more fruits, nuts, and vegetables. The menu is still basic foods.
The number 1 thing you need to do is stop buying food in packages. Carbs are easy to package. You can just add sugar, salt, and chemicals, and it will sit on the shelves for years. So just focus on eating cleaner carbs. I wouldn't eat a potato as a low carber, or noodles, but if you think the ingredients list is short enough, add them too.
Go to the store and read the labels, and come up with your own menu. I would stay with the SP ranges, but try to eliminate foods with words I could not pronounce, and replace them with single ingredient foods like an apple.
