Advice on losing weight

The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.

* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
Although you can buy reduced carb breadcrumbs, you can make them yourself by simply using reduced carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the low carb bread in a gas or electric oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is hard, whizz it in your food mill. To store, keep in a tupperware jar or container.

Don't trust food packaging that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the back of the package. A good number of are only slightly less and in some instances still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are identical.
