Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* You can create really good smoothies with reduced carbohydrate yogurt.
Admittedly, itís not technically cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can make them with reduced carbohydrate yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you will need to make sure you use fruit that is low in carbohydrates and make use of the whole fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
