Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:

Although you can sometimes buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carb bread. All you have to do is toast the low carb bread in the oven on a cookie sheet. When it is well browned, whizz it in the food processor or blender. To store, keep in a tupperware container.
