At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.

* Don't ignore the fiber
Reducing the carbohydrates in your diet usually results in reduction in fiber as well. Look at reduced carbohydrate recipes that are high in fiber to redress this.
* Use reduced carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have converted your best loved chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, you donít want to add in those high carbohydrate 'real' chocolate. Break up a low carbohydrate bar of chocolate into little pieces and use that in its place.
