Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some low carb diet tips:
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Many recipes that need sugar can be modified to make use of splenda. It is much lighter so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work for every dish, but it does bake up nice in most cases.
* Don't skip meals
Most low carbohydrate recipes are, well...., low in carbohydrates. Your body requires energy, and carbohydrates are a very efficient source of energy. A low carbohydrate diet needs more care in monitoring you energy levels, as any energy contributed by non-carbohydrate sources is far slower to act.
