Food Tips of the Week

Weight loss hints and tips

In planning a meal plan, the most important step is to make efforts to lower your intake of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* You can make delicious smoothies using reduced carb yogurt. Admittedly, you can't really call it cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can throw them together with reduced carb yogurt and fruit. Obviously, you should ensure you use fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use the whole fruit as the fiber is beneficial.

* Fiber is essential Decreasing the carbohydrates in your diet usually leads to fiber reduction as well. Check for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.

Carotenoid foods

These colorful healthy plants are rich in the carotenoids believed by nutritionalists be a key nutrient in minimizing the risk of cancer, particularly those cancers involving the lung, esophagus and stomach. Most are low in calories, so you should add them to your weight loss regime.
