Food Tips of the Week
Weight loss hints and tips
In planning a meal plan, the most important step is to make efforts to lower your intake of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some lower carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Use splenda instead of sugar.
Recipes that call for sugar can be changed to make use of splenda instead. It doesn't weigh the same so you will have to experiment a little and it might not be perfect for everything, but it does bake up nice in most cases.
* Use low carbohydrate chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your best loved chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, you donít want to add in those high carb chocolate chips. Break up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny chunks and use that in its place.
