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 low carb diet pointers:
* Make low carb breadcrumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
While you can sometimes buy reduced carb breadcrumbs, you can make them yourself by using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in the oven on a sheet of cookie paper. When it is well browned, grind it in your blender. Store in an airtight jar or container.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)
The alliaceae family of vegetables is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe may be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not enough, definitive proof available, allyl sulfides are also thought by nutritionalists to aid in antiinflammatory effect, arteriosclerosis and physical exhaustion.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so make sure you add them to your weight loss regime.
