Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Fiber is essential
Cutting the carbs in your meals often leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at reduced carb recipes that are fiber-rich to redress this.
* Use low carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your best loved chocolate cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you donít want to put in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Break up a reduced carbohydrate choccie bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.
