Pretzels have white refined carbs that do a number on your blood sugar so for diabetics this is trouble. STAY AWAY FROM PRETZELS, please.

Dieters: Pretzels are loaded with salt not to mention the carbs and raise blood pressure. They make you retain water weight...just stop eating pretzels, please.

Oatmeal...Feel Full

People who ate a warm oatmeal breakfast felt fuller four hours later than those who had cold cereal...the fiber in the oatmeal slows digestion and should keep you full until lunch.
Add 4 walnuts to protect you heart or flax seed. Berries for even more fiber. Steel cut oats are denser. Good Carbs.

Are You In Denial About Wheat? Switch to Rye & Feel Less Hungry

Dr Mark Hyman Says :We are ALL allergic to wheat with the reaction that it makes us fat. It contains a Super Starch -- amylopectin A that is super fattening. It also contains a form of Super Gluten that is super-inflammatory& It contains forms of a Super Drug that is super-addictive and makes you crave and eat more. Switch to Rye bread, the best kind of bread to use,as sugars in rye flour are absorbed into your bloodstream much more slowly

Best Pasta Choice

Dreamfield's Pasta has only 5 digestable carbs. I measure out 2 ounces and add Tuna or chicken, or Lawry's Spaghetti Sauce which has only 2grams of sugar and 6 grams of carbs. Freeze left over sauce.
