Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Dietary fiber is important
Decreasing the carbs in your meals usually leads to fiber reduction also. Look out for low carb recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for breaded foods.
While you can sometimes buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using reduced carb bread. Simply toast the low carb bread in your oven on a sheet of baking paper. When it is well toasted, process it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Keep in a tupperware jar or container.
