7 Easy Ways to Reduce Your Carbohydrate Intake

#1 Cut out Bread

Many people eat bread every day, but most bread is high in carbs and low in fiber. White bread is especially high in carbs and low in fiber. Not eating bread is the easiest and most effective way to cut down on the amount of carbs you eat.

#2 Eat Plenty of Protein

Cutting back on carbs can be easier if you eat a healthy protein-rich food at every meal. Protein-rich foods like meat, chicken, eggs, and nuts not only make meals taste better and offer more variety,

#3 Switch Potatoes and Bread for Vegetable

At restaurants, if you can choose between potatoes and bread or veggies, always choose the vegetables. If you can, choose veggies that aren't too sugary, like corn, peas, or carrots.

#4 Make Sure Your Dairy Intake is Low Carbohydrate

Dairy products are very tasty and very healthy, but some are loaded with carbohydrates. Fruit flavoured yoghurt and frozen yoghurt are often high in sugar and carbohydrates.

#5 Eat low Carbohydrate Snacks

While you may be doing a great job of eating few calories at your main meals, those snacks can sneak up on you. Treats like chips and cookies are full of carbs that you don't need. 

#6 Have Eggs for Breakfast

A lot of breakfast foods, like grains and bread, are high in carbs. Eggs are a tasty way to start the day that won't make you feel too full of carbs. Also, they have a lot of energy. Just don't eat the toast.

#7 Skip the Fruit Juice

Like most drinks that are high in sugar, fruit juice is mostly made up of sugar and complicated carbs. Water is best, but if you want to spice things up a bit, try adding a taste of lemon or lime.
