Health & Wellness Quick Tip

2 Aug

Reducing the number of refined starches in one’s diet helps with weight loss and reduces insulin resistance (a precursor to Type II Diabetes.) If you think it might be too hard to reduceĀ  refined starches in your diet, try these tricks:

  • Eating a sandwich or a burger? Remove the top bun or slice of bread. You still get the “bread” effect, but with half the calories and carbohydrates!
  • If you’re expecting to indulge in dessert, skip the carbohydrate in your main meal and drinks. No need for soda, potatoes AND dessert! Just pick one.
  • Try to eat 1-2 meals a day with no starches. If you have oatmeal for breakfast, then lunch and/or dinner can be “starch free.”

Try one or more of these tricks and you’ll be on your way to a healthier you!
