Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of the food label that claims 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the rear of the can or package. Many are only slightly reduced and in some cases still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.
* Dietary fiber is important
Cutting the carbs in your meals usually leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at low carbohydrate recipes that are high in fiber to redress this.
