Food Tips of the Week

Dieting made easy

When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some low carb diet tips:
* Don't forget the fiber Cutting the carbs in your meals usually leads to fiber reduction as well. Check for low carb recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.

* Understand the food labels Be sceptical of the food label that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the reverse of the can or packet. A good number of are only a little reduced and in some instances still higher than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.
