*Breakfast cereals can be misguide you badly.  Avoid sugar laden, flavored cereal and opt for rolled oats and sugar free muesli.

 

*Avoid white bread, no matter how tempting it is. Opt for brown bread, unpolished rice or brown rice, sprouted grains and multi grain bread because these are not polished and refined and hence the nutrients are intact.

 

 *Stop your intake of highly processed and polished grains. They don’t have any nutritional value and they also have a very high GI. Instead opt for brown, unpolished rice, ragi, millets and wheat bran.
