carbs at every meal -- works for me

Options
What I really want when I have a meal are some carbs. I love bread and rice and pasta. I was eliminating some carbs (nothing drastic) to eliminate some calories. Well, that kind of worked. I had more vegetables, more fruit, more protein. But I still really wanted some carbs and kept on wanting them between meals.

For the past couple weeks I've deliberately had carbs at each meal. Toast or english muffin at breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, and some pasta/rice/bread with dinner and, voila! I no longer crave them between meals. They fit in my calories and I'm much more satisfied with my meals.

Just thought I'd share.

    Self discovery is the best kind of lesson. Good for you!! Carbs are yummy :)

    I have carbs at every meal too. I just have less of things like pasta and rice, and eat lower glycemic load bread.
