Advice on losing weight

Theoretically, this needs to involve 5 standard portions of grains, cereals and vegetables every day and also contain the optimum fusion of important nutrients.
Some lower carb diet tips:
* Make low carb bread crumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
While you may be able to buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you may make them at home by simply using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a baking tray. Once it is well browned, process it in your blender. Keep in a tupperware jar or container.
* Use soya flour or baking mix.
When you require flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a soya baking mix such as Atkins soy baking mix. In most cases, you may adapt your most popular recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these alternatives.
