Core Diet Approved Foods

Below is a list of those convenience foods that are Core Diet Approved! These are the foods that are easy to travel with that either 1) meet the Core Ratio, or 2) are truly Core foods based on their ingredients! As a refresher, Core Foods are any lean meats, fruits, veggies, nuts, or seeds and these foods can be consumed any time! Other, packaged foods that meet the Core Ratio, or are truly Core foods based on their ingredients are in part captured below.  What is the Core Ratio?  Carbs + Sugar - Fiber divided by Fat + Protein.  This Ratio must be less than two to minimize blood sugar impacts.  These foods must also have saturated fat content below 5 grams per serving to be Core Diet Approved!  If you have a food to add to our list, or would like to use the Core Diet approved food label on your product, please contact us!
