    If you want to reduce the carbohydrates then you can replace 2 servings of bread with meat.
  • Try to select from the bread group foods which are high in fibers such as: whole-grain breads, cereals and crackers.
  • Try to select from the lean meat, the poultry, or the fish. They are the healthiest.
