Every day new meal replacement shakes and bars are sold on the market.They may claim to be healthy, but almost all of them contain hydrogenated oil and sweeteners.
Low carbohydrate doughnuts and muffins can be found at your neighborhood grocery store . While low-carbohydrate pastries may be tempting to buy, unfortunately they still contain all of the usual carbohydrate suspects: sugar and flour.
They may be healthier than your typical muffin as an occasional treat but not for long term eating.

Fruit juice can be very tempting as a replacement for soda but most commercial fruit juice has very little actual fruit juice.
Instead you will find lots of sugar water and other ingredients. Skip the juice altogether and eat a fresh piece of fruit instead. Not only does fresh fruit contain less sugar than juice. Fresh fruit also has fiber which is good for you and will help you feel fuller longer.
10.)Cooking your own food:
