Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Know what is in your food
Don't believe the food label that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the product. Some are only a little lowered and in some instances still higher than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.
* Use reduced carb chocolate bars for cookies and muffins.
If you have converted your favorite chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you really don't want to put in those high carbohydrate chocolate chips. Break up a reduced carb choccie bar into tiny chunks and use that as an alternative.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, turnip greens and sweet potatoes)
These amazing fruit and veg have high levels of alpha and beta carotenes believed by doctors to help in cancer prevention, particularly those cancers involving the esophagus and stomach. Many also help you lose weight, so you should add them to your weight loss program.
