According to heath.com, eliminating foods such as carbs is not a good option, the right thing to do is to substitute them. Here is a list of simple substitutions that can lead you a healthy lifestyle over the course of time.

  1. Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is essentially a blend of eggs and oil, emulsified to a creamy texture perfect to spread on sandwiches and use as a dip. Yogurt can be used instead of mayonnaise in salads and sandwiches, and I promise that it would still taste delicious.

  1. White flour

The major problem with white flour is that it is used in so many things from cakes to pasta to samosas. There are so many substitutes for white flour which can be used for different meals.
