Special Diets

Anyone who's followed a special diet knows it's not easy. Whether it's low-fat, low-carbohydrate, low-sugar or gluten-free, resisting temptation and maintaining variety can be frustrating. Luckily, there are countless resources devoted to special diets, including many that offer flavorful, easy-to-prepare recipes.

Low-fat diets

Cyberdiet offers a wealth of health information, including an explanation of the relationship between a healthy diet and diabetes, depression and your heart. Trying to improve your kids' diet? The site's Fast Food Challenge helps families make more nutritious drive-through decisions.

Low-sugar diets

Adhering to a low- or no-sugar diet is tough for adults, but even more difficult for children. The Food and Diet page of the Children with Diabetes site offers information on carbohydrate counting and tips for holidays and special occasions. The Favorite Recipes page offers sugar-free recipes for many favorites, including sweet toppings like chocolate sauce and maple-flavored syrup.

Jeanine's Sugar-Free Recipes provides "no sugar added" creations (some contain natural fruit sugars) for beverages, breakfast foods and desserts.

The Carbohydrate Addict's Network also has an online homes.
