12 Low-Carb Dinner Switches to Help Cut Down on Calories

We love carbs as much as the next person, but if you've been loading up on pasta, grains and bread a bit too much recently, it can leave you feeling sluggish, bloated and generally a bit blah.

But it's not all bad news. One of the easiest, quickest and cheapest ways of feeling lighter and brighter is to make some simple dinner switches. That's right—you don't need to cut out carbs completely to feel instantly better. Just switching out your evening meal is enough to see results.

Limiting your carbohydrate intake in the evening not only helps you de-bloat, but it also helps you sleep better too.

So lighten up your dinner and you'll reap the benefits come morning.
