Decreasing the carbs in your diet usually results in reduction in fiber also. Look at low carb recipes that are fiber-rich balance the equation.
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Recipes that call for sugar can be modified to make use of a good substitute like splenda. It has a different density so you will have to do a bit of trial and error and it might not work for every recipe, but it gives pretty good results for the most part.
