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 carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Understand the food labels
Don't believe sales blurb that claims to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. A good number of are only slightly lowered and in some instances still greater than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.
Many recipes that require sugar can be adapted to use splenda instead. It is much lighter so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work in every case, but it does bake up nice once you have it cracked.

The flavonoids which exist in these fruits and vegetables are thought to have properties in fighting cancer.
Doctors investigating the nutritional effects of flavonoids think that they may well also have most other healthy benefits, including, but not limited to, anti-allergic and antioxidant properties.
The majority of these are also low in calories, so you should add them to your diet system.
