Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Use soy flour or bake mix.
When you require flour for baking, repalce it with soya flour or a bake mix such as Atkins soy baking mix. In many cases, you can change your best loved recipes that use wheat flour to use these alternatives.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, leeks and welsh onion)
The onion and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is precious little hard medical proof obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce the symptoms of colds, arteriosclerosis and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be included in your diet system.
