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.
Some lower carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Use soy flour or soy baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baking, substitute soya flour or a bake mix like Atkins baking mix. In most cases, you may change your favorite recipes that use conventional wheat flour to use these low carbohydrate alternatives.
* Make low carbohydrate breadcrumbs for breadcrumb coated foods.
Whilst you can sometimes buy low carb breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is simply toast the reduced carb bread in a pre-heated oven on a baking tray. Once it is well toasted, whizz it in your food processor or blender. Keep in an airtight jar.
