I have never looked for such a thing. My wife is a good cook and we just started looking up the amount of carbohydrates in foods on the internet and started avoiding the high carb foods. The diet is more about what you don't eat than what you do.
Dr Eric Westman has a video where he reads the lists of foods that his patients can and can not eat. You can get the list by watching that video for free. Or if you pay a $10 donation you can get a link to a download file with the list. I think it is called "page 4" because it is page four in his patient manual. Westman is excellent in my opinion. He keeps it very simple and does not go over the top on lots of extraneous details. I will try to find that video (it is a very old one produced in his clinic while actually instructing patients). If you read this and there is no link, come back later as I will edit and put the link.
I can attach a list that I have prepared for a lady that ask me for a food list. It is not medical advice, but merely a food list that lists low and high carbohydrate foods to eat and avoid if a person wants to keep the carbs low in the diet. It is not exhaustive, but was purposely kept very simple for the person it was prepared for. It was not made for the general public, but I will attach it, use at your own risk.
It is really pretty simple. Just avoid high carbohydrate foods such as the starchy ones. What carbs you do eat make them green vegetables. Avoid highly processed foods (boxed foods) as the starches tend to be converted to simple sugars very rapidly in the body. Avoid vegetable oils and instead use more natural fats. Avoid anything that has sugar in it. Those simple rules will get you 80% of the benefits. Anything beyond that is just fine tuning.
Maybe someone else has food lists or menu's. Wife and I just eat mostly fatty meat with a few green veggies interspersed. Pretty simple really.
Note: some of the above links I just found with a search. I am not recommending or promoting their web sites but it appeared they had some good information. Anyone reading this use your own brain, do your own due diligence, make your own decisions based on your own needs. I do not give advice, medical or otherwise. I just share publicly available information for discussion purposes only and express some of my own opinions. They are opinions only, not recommendations.
