If you’ve been trying to stick to a diet but are having trouble doing so, you may be looking for something new to spark your motivation to shed those pounds and feel better about your life. To help you achieve that goal, here are some tips from the ‘latino secret diet’ to get you revved up and excited about a lifestyle transformation.
Drop the Bread
The old saying, ‘The whiter the bread, the sooner you’ll be dead,’ isn’t just good advice, it really could help save your life. White bread has almost no real nutrients. It’s made from white flour, which metabolizes into sugar in your blood, and it’s packed with empty calories. If you find that you can’t simply cut bread out of your diet completely, switch to whole wheat bread. And by whole wheat, it has to be ‘whole’ wheat. There are tons of multigrain breads out there that advertise themselves as whole wheat, but unless you look at the ingredients, you may be fooled. The first ingredient you see should read, ‘Whole wheat flour,’ not ‘enriched flour,’ or ‘unbleached wheat flour.’ You can also opt for wheat tortillas instead of white or corn tortillas to reduce fat and calories and boost your intake of whole grains. Cutting bread will reduce your sugar intake and calories and help you drop pounds.
