Diet hints and tips
In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
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.
Brassicas, Superfoods that also help with your Weight loss
(eg. Cauliflower, Broccoli, Collard greens and Rutabaga)
Members of the brassica family are full of vitamins (eg.vitamin c), minerals (eg. potassium and selenium), fibre, chlorophyll and antioxidents.
In addition to their many other health benefits, the minerals and nutrients in these are believed to reduce the risk of cancer.
