Food Tips of the Week
Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some reduced carb diet tips:
* Fiber is crucial
Cutting the carbs in your meals often leads to fiber reduction also. Check for low carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
* Make reduced carb bread crumbs for breaded foods.
Although you can sometimes buy reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the low carb bread in a gas or electric oven on a sheet of baking paper. When it is quite hard and crispy, grind it in your blender. Keep in an airtight jar or container.
