WILD RICE FILLS YOU UP

Some wild rice in your diet may help..... it has less calories than brown rice, fewer carbs than brown rice, more fiber and higher in protein and should fill you up quicker...
How much and what kind of carbs do matter!

Why cravings start!

Overweight means that your insulin doesn't work as well to control glucose levels. When you are insulin resistant ( and normal people can be insulin resistant at times) your body converts every calorie it can into fat, even if you’re dieting. It won't let you burn fat when you exercise....even if you exercise like wild! Too much salt boosts insulin, the hormone that tells the body to store fat. The more insulin, the more fat is stored and the more you gain. When blood sugar drops cravings begin.

Bread

Pumpernickel Bread has resistant starch and is a fat burning carb. Rye is also a good choice.....once resistant starch reaches the large colon, it is fermented by bacteria, similar to how fiber is digested, so it does not raise blood sugar levels
