Before we bite into a bagel, we need to budget the carbs into our meal plans. The typical bakery bagel usually contains 70 grams of carbs-about 5 times more than a slice of wheat bread. Eating a whole bagel may cause your blood sugar to spike-why not eat half now and half later in the day?
Skip the salami and bologna. You can blow your saturated fat and sodium allowance for most of your day…A single slice of bologna has 87 carbs and over 300 milligrams of sodium…a single slice!
Ask for less meat and extra fixings…ask the deli to cut your meat into half/add crunchy vegetables.
Hold the mayo, special sauces and cheese…instead use mustard-makes it 10 grams of fat lighter.
Ask for whole wheat, rather than white or even a roll-or skip the roll altogether
