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 tips:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of advertizing that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the tin or package. Quite a few are only slightly reduced and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.
* It is possible to make really nice smoothies by using low carbohydrate yogurt.
Yes, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you love smoothies you can make perfectly acceptable alternatives by using reduced carbohydrate yogurt and fruit. Of course, you will need to ensure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole of the fruit as you need the fiber.
