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 lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Replace sugar with splenda.
Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of splenda. It is much lighter so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it might not work in every case, but it does a decent job once you have it cracked.

Although there is very little definitive proof published, allyl sulfides are also thought by many experts to reduce symptoms with blood circulation, arteriosclerosis and diabetes.
