Cut Carbs at Subway

by admin on June 21, 2010

If you are looking to cut your carbs, it may feel like everything is off limits to you. Thankfully, there are a lot of great options out there. First of all, reducing carbs doesn’t mean cutting them out entirely. Ideally, you’re replacing the more refined carbohydrates, like white flour products, white rice and white potatoes, with higher fiber, more whole-type foods, like non-starchy vegetables, whole grains, berries and legumes. These types of carbs cause a low and slow sugar release, which provides a steady source of fuel to the brain, without excessively raising insulin, the fat-storing hormone. The rule of thumb is to eat as close to nature as possible, and choose foods that are higher in fiber. Subway may be a “sandwich place”, but it is loaded with easy ways to cut your carbs. My favorite is to have a low carb wrap loaded with all of the non-starchy vegetables, some avocado (where available) and some lean protein. If they have a bean or lentil soup, that is another great option you can try. Cutting carbs doesn’t mean cutting out great taste. Experiment with all of the great veggies, whole grains and legumes, and you will hit a taste-bud homerun.
