Food Tips of the Week
At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
Some lower carb diet guidlines:
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for cookies and muffins.
Once you have converted your best loved chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soy flour, you donít want to add in those high carbohydrate full-sugar chocolate. Cut up a reduced carbohydrate choccie bar into small pieces and use that as an alternative.
* Use splenda instead of sugar.
Many recipes that use sugar can be modified to make use of a sugar replacement instead. It doesn't weigh the same so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work for everything, but it gives pretty good results in most cases.

(includes parsley, mangos and sweet potatoes)
These colorful superfoods are rich in the carotenoids believed by many play a key role in helping stop cancer, particularly of the stomach. A good number also have a low calorie count, so are ideal for including in your diet system.
