Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Don't miss meals
Most low carbohydrate recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Our bodies need energy, and carbohydrates are a quick acting source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires care and attention in monitoring you energy intake, as any energy contributed by protein and fat is slower acting.
* Don't forget the fiber
Decreasing the carbs in your meals often results in fiber reduction as well. Check for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
