Reducing carbohydrate intake is a marvellous idea to get slimmer and healthier body. However, it can be really though since we need to fight the craving for full tummy. The following tips are great tips to reduce our carbohydrate intake in easier but tasty way.
#1. No Sugary Beverages
It doesn’t mean we can’t drink sweet beverages. We need to make in balance. We need to drink more and more mineral water instead of sugary beverages. We don’t need that much sugar, only once in a while in a day.
#2. Add More Veggie on Menu
How can we do this? It’s simple. Instead of serving cheese burger with bun, we can use salsa sauce, and extra veggie on it. It has enough supply for the body without being fat.
#3. Make Substitution
We need to change our preference on food. We can start by replacing potato chips with roasted almonds, or spaghetti squash over pasta.
#4. Prefer on Quality Food

#5. Always Pick Browns
It applies for rice and bread. If we are willing for more, we can try for “no white diet” where we refuse to consume white bread, white flour, white rice, and white sugar.
