Using GG Bran Crackers for Weight Management
By Joanne Eglash
One of the biggest challenges for dieters revolves around the issue of appetite control. Let’s look at a typical day in a dieter’s life to understand the challenges that arise – and how to respond to lose weight successfully:
Breakfast: You wake up feeling hungry. Visions of chocolate-frosted jelly doughnuts and an extra-large cappuccino topped with whipped cream are dancing in your head. Yawning, you head into the kitchen and hunt around for something that will help you manage your weight, satisfy your appetite, AND taste good. I know how you feel: I’ve sought to manage my weight for more years than I want to admit. As a health, diet, and food journalist currently completing her M.S. degree in holistic nutrition, I’ve tasted many foods that claim to assist with weight loss yet taste great. My favorite option: GG Bran Crispbread.
Here’s how it works for breakfast: while you’re brewing up that cup of coffee or tea, you can quickly prepare several of these crunchy, thick wafers in a variety of ways. Top with unsweetened applesauce sprinkled with a dash of cinnamon and serve with an ounce of low-fat or fat-free cream cheese, for example. Sugar-free and containing three grams of fiber per wafer, these crackers are low-calorie, low-carb, and low on the glycemic index – a magical combination when it comes to helping you control your appetite and lose weight!
Snack time: Skip the usual trip to the vending machine or cookie jar. Candy bars, sugar cookies, and so forth that typically form the basis for snacks are NOT the answer to the question: “What should I use for snacks in order to lose weight?”
Instead, take GG Crispbreads to the office or have them in the front of your kitchen cupboard. That way, when the urge for a mid-morning, mid-afternoon, or evening snack strikes, you can safely indulge. Enjoy with a cup of herb tea or coffee sweetened with a packet of Equal or Splenda, and accompany with a fresh fruit such as an apple or pear. High in fiber, low in calories and carbs, this snack will satisfy your hunger without expanding your waistline!
Lunch time: A typical noon sandwich consists of two slices of white bread topped with mayonnaise and layers of ham, cheese, and perhaps a paltry piece of iceberg lettuce. Accompanied by a package of potato chips and a tall glass of lemonade or an extra-large cappuccino, the result is a meal high in simple carbohydrates, fat, and calories. You’ll feel hungry again within an hour or two – and feel disappointed when you weigh yourself the next day.
Instead, try using GG Crispbread as the basis for a tasty sandwich. Top with a small amount of fat-free mustard, then add on a slice of fat-free cheese and fat-free turkey or chicken. Add lots of dark green lettuce (not pale iceberg, which is low in vitamins and minerals), sliced tomatoes, and sliced cucumbers and sprinkle with herbs. Delicious, nutritious, filling, low in calories and high in protein and fiber, this combination is a winner for weight loss and appetite control!
Dinner time: Pasta? Fried chicken? A triple cheeseburger with French fries? Don’t be tempted by the lure of a fast food drive-in or high carb, high calorie frozen TV dinner. Instead, try a skinless chicken breast broiled with fresh steamed vegetables. On the side, have two GG Crispbread to satisfy your desire to munch and crunch. If you love melted cheese, top with a slice of fat-free cheese and slip in the microwave until the cheese melts or pop under the broiler.
