Carbs are one of the big diet foci of today. Everyone is talking about carbs and how bad they are and what you can do to reduce them. Good grief—it's everywhere! So if carbs are a concern of yours, then how can you reduce them?
There's unfortunately not a magic wand anywhere that can reduce your carbs for you, but there are a few other methods you can use to reduce the carbs in your already existing recipes that aren't hard and will help you out with the low-carb diet you're looking for!
The first thing to do is to figure out what ingredients you can substitute in your recipes. Swap out regular milk for non-fat milk, butter for margarine (where possible), and regular sugars for Splenda. When shopping, keep an eye out for the "light" sweeteners and the specially labeled "low (or no) carb" products. These can, however, get expensive so be selective and wise in your carb cutting. Here are a few ways for you to reduce your carb intake without really losing the favorite parts of your diet.
So, making your already existing diet more low carb definitely isn't impossible. It will take some work and nutrition research on your part, but if low carbs are the way for you then it will be worth it!
