NOTE – by Carbs we’re talking Starches…. OK No way would I ever suggest you cut out al ‘Carbs’ as that would include fruits and veggies… just DAFT. Most people overeat due to the lack of nutrients in their diet…
· We’re talking about starchy carbohydrates, foods like breads, cereals, grains and pastries.
· If you eat too many of these there is every chance that you will gain body fat, and crave more and more of these carbs through the day. It’s starchy carbs that you should watch for a few reasons.
o One, we like the sweet taste of starches
o They give us a full feeling in our stomachs
o The energy which carbs provide is short lived and make you feel hungry again.
o These foods do not contain many nutrients so your body is continually searching for something more….
So, there is every possibility that you will overeat.
The following tips will help you get some great ideas on low starch breakfast recipes.

These are healthy as well as delicious. Enjoy them without any pangs of guilt.
