Low Carb Tricks and Diet Tips #1 – Easily Accessible Snacks
One of the wisest low carb tricks is to have snacks around. It’s a great idea to keep certain low carb foods on hand all the time for snacking just when you are overcome with hunger pangs or when your energy is low, Curvy Goddess. Think ‘a handful of something’ rather than a meal-sized portion. This will hold you over until your next meal so it will easily prevent you from overdoing it during mealtime.
Try some of these great snacks:
*Annie Chun’s Seaweed Sesame or Wasabi Snacks
*Raw, whole almonds
*Raw, whole cashews
*Cheese (2 oz max.)
*Chopped veggies – Baby carrots, cauliflower, celery, and broccoli
Low Carb Tricks and Diet Tips #2 – Start The Day Off Right
This is one of the non-traditional low carb tricks and tips. You may need to access this for yourself, Curvy Goddess.
I know you’ve heard this time and time again, but many will agree that beginning the day with breakfast is a healthy thing to do. I would say that if you’re hungry for breakfast then eat and if you’re not then why force your body to work digesting the food that you’ve eaten when you weren’t really hungry? I know. It may not be the conventional thought.
For some, breakfast will prevent from overeating later in the day; but for others it’s extra calories. I know personally if I eat a large breakfast it’s a trigger for me to eat all throughout the day. I’d rather eat when I’m hungry instead of forcing myself to eat when I’m not hungry. I think it’s actually a bad habit.
For Low Carb Tricks and Tips Breakfast Food Ideas:
*Greek Yogurt with Berries or Melon
*Cottage Cheese with Berries or Melon
Low Carb Tricks and Diet Tips #3 – Avoid White Food
The following low carb tricks and diet tip is also a good rule of thumb to follow on your low carb plan.
Avoid foods that are white. Usually white foods are processed such as sugar, pasta, white bread, white rice, and potatoes. A food that shouldn’t be applied to the low carb tricks and tips is fish since it’s low carbs.
Low Carb Tricks and Diet Tips #4 – What to Drink
Probably the most typical low carb tricks and diet tip is to make sure you’re drinking your water to keep all bodily systems functioning. Water is essential. Make sure you’re drinking 8 glasses of water at least and much more if you’ve started your plus size workout.
Some low carb tricks and tips to get your water in:
*Add lemons and lime to water and chill
*Add sliced cucumbers for a refreshing alternative
*You can make iced green tea to help rev fat burning
*Drink herbal tea to not only hydrate but to wind down instead of warm milk at bedtime.
