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 lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.
Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of a sugar substitute like splenda. It doesn't weigh the same so you will have to expirement with it and it might not be perfect in every case, but it gives very good results once you have it cracked.
* Use low carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
Once you have converted your most popular chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, you really don't want to add in those high carb standard chocolate. Chop up a low carbohydrate choccie bar into little pieces and use that in its place.
Brassicas, Wonder foods that aid Dieting
(includes Arugula, Broccoli, Mizuna and Daikon)
Vegetablesi in the brassica family are full of vitamins (eg.folate and vit c), minerals (including potassium and selenium), isothiocyanates, antioxidents and indole-3-carbinol.
