Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Know what is in your food Don't believe food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the back of the tin or packet. A good number of are only marginally less and in some instances still more than a competitors usual brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are identical.

* Don't ignore the fiber Reducing the carbs in your diet usually results in reduction in fiber also. Look at reduced carb recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
