Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.
Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of a sugar substitute like splenda. It doesn't weigh the same so you will have to expirement with it and it might not be perfect in every case, but it gives very good results once you have it cracked.
* Use low carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
Once you have converted your most popular chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, you really don't want to add in those high carb standard chocolate. Chop up a low carbohydrate choccie bar into little pieces and use that in its place.
