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 reduced carb diet pointers:
* Use low carbohydrate chocolate for cookies and muffins.
Once you have converted your favorite chocolate cookie or muffins recipe using soy flour, you really don't want to add in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Cut up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny chunks and use that as an alternative.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbs. Your body requires energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A low carbohydrate diet needs care and attention in managing your energy intake, as the energy provided by protein and fat is far slower to act.

The flavonoids found in these natural foods are thought by nutritionalists to have properties in fighting cancer.
Nutritionalists researching the medical effects of flavonoids think they also have many other benefits to our health, amongst them, antiviral and antioxidant powers.
Most also have a low calorie count, so should be a part of every weight loss program.
