I never cut out carbs as I need them for energy but I eat dark rye bread and try to avoid potatoes ( I eat sweet potato if I do or just have a little bit of normal potatoes)
I try and only have bread in one meal for the day so if I have toast for brekkie I'll avoid bread for the rest of the day and I'll try and have a few bread free days a week.
I eat pasta but again in moderation.
Portion sizes are the key IMO. If u have pasta opt for brown if u can and just have a smaller serving with lots of veggies mixed through to bulk it up ( say in a bolognaise)
