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 carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs for breadcrumb coated foods.
Whilst you may be able to buy reduced carb breadcrumbs, you may make them at home by simply using reduced carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the reduced carb bread in a pre-heated oven on a cookie sheet. When it is well toasted, process it in your food processor or blender. To store, keep in a tupperware jar or container.
* Fiber is essential
Cutting the carbs in your diet often results in reduction in fiber also. Look at low carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
