I stick mainly to whole foods (chicken, dairy, etc. which I get at Cosco, and veggies), but my favourite treat is the Breyer's chocolate low-carb ice cream. I've found it for the best price at Loblaw's, but they are often out of stock lately -- hope they aren't phasing it out! IGA also carries the ice cream, but it is 1$ more per carton.

Teva on Decarie boul (the east side at Queen Mary Rd.) has a lot of options as well, although I don't buy things regularly. One of the people at Teva (Steven) follows Paleo, so he knows quite a bit about low carb, he used to tell me all the time when I was on WW that I should be eating low carb, not low fat/high carb

Other than that, if I feel the need for an Advantage bar, I get them at Maxi because they are 3/5$ which is the most reasonable I've seen.

Loblaw's also has a lot of prepackaged low-carb foods (like frozen entrees), but I personally stay away from anything like that.

Default low carbing in Montreal

Hi. That's a great page. I didn't know about Canada Snacks. If you like, I can add a few more things.

Orowheat Carb Counters bread is available at the Provigo on Sherbrooke and Cavendish in NDG.

Bon Matin Carb Reduction bread is available at all Metro and IGA stores.

Loblaws carries the full line of Carb Options products, including ketchup, marinades, peanut butter, pasta sauces.

A good Canadian internet store is feelgreatfoods.ca. They have a very wide selection of items, and shipping is only $5.95, and free if your order is $100.00 or more.

Cherie.

Thumbs up thanks clk!

THANKS CLK!!!
I'll add them to my page. I didn't know about the bread, I'll have to check it out.
However, I did know about feelgreatfoods.ca and I have omitted them intentionally. I've had several problems with them over the last few months. Items are not as described or even looking at all like the picture they provide. Crackers, bread and chips were crushed due to the "mom & pop" style packing. Items missing from shipment. And even though you select an item you never know until it arrives that they even have it in stock. And finally, they give me big time attitude with rude and poor customer service. <-- way down! Check out the other online stores. They're much better! Cheers!

HI, great page! Thanks for putting it all together, it will be very helpful for newbies.

My addition Breyer's low-carb ice cream is available at IGA and at Loblaw's and is my absolute favourite low-carb treat!
