When you’re looking to lose weight, modifying your diet is not always the easiest thing. It’s hard to rid your appetite of the high-carb side dish that usually accompanies your dinner choices. While that mac and cheese and side of pancakes may seem delicious at the time, they are heavy in carbs and will just leave you feeling tired and upset with yourself by the end of the day. But there are ways to have that carb-delicious dinner your body craves without seeing it go straight to your waist. Try these low-carb substitutes the next time you’re prepping dinner to trick your body into thinking it’s still getting what it craves while giving you what you crave – a slimmer, healthier figure.
