Good Eats: Over 30 tasty low-carb recipes that will keep you feeling full

While carbs aren't necessarily the enemy, many celebs credit their slim figures and six-pack abs to a low-carb diet. Take Jennifer Lopez for example: the mega fit celebrity recently paired up with boyfriend Alex Rodriguez to take on a no sugar, no carb challenge as part of the 10-Day Detox Diet. Halle Berry has been outspoken about her dedication to the ketogenic diet and Al Roker claimed to have lost 10 pounds in two weeks while following it, too. 

So, if you think you can go low-carb (or maybe you already are!), stick with it by filling up your plate with these yummy recipes. Just because it's low-carb doesn't mean it can't be exciting or even decadent. Butter-basted steak is low-carb. Barbecue shrimp with avocado salad is low-carb. Jalapeño popper nachos are low-carb. See?
