Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some reduced carb diet tips:
* Don't skip meals
Most low carbohydrate recipes are, rather obviously, low in carbs. Our bodies need energy, and carbs are a very efficient source of energy. A low carbohydrate diet requires extreme care in managing your intake of energy, as any energy provided by protein and fat is slower acting.
* Make reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs for breaded foods.
While you can sometimes buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you can make them yourself by simply using low carb bread. All you have to do is toast the low carbohydrate bread in a preheated oven on a sheet of cookie paper. Once it is well toasted, process it in your food processor or blender. Keep in a tupperware container.
