Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbs. We all need energy, and carbohydrates are a very efficient energy source. A low carb diet requires more care in monitoring you energy levels, as the energy provided by protein and fat is much slower acting.
* Read food labels
Be sceptical of food packaging that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the reverse of the tin or packet. Some are only marginally lowered and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.

The nutrients called 'flavonoids' present in these food types are thought by nutritionalists to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Researchers researching the effects of flavonoids think they might also have numerous other healthy properties, amongst them, anti-dermatitis and antiplatelet capabilities.
The majority of these also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet system.
