Food Tips of the Week
Rather than thinking about which food types you really should leave out of your meal plan, focus on the nutritionally sound foods that you are able to introduce to your meal plan. If you manage to inject some nourishing grains and vegetables into your daily routine, you'll soon see that stop feeling hungry and have a significantl;y decreased risk of giving in to those damaging midday snacks.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbs. We all need energy, and carbohydrates are a very efficient energy source. A low carb diet requires more care in monitoring you energy levels, as the energy provided by protein and fat is much slower acting.
* Read food labels
Be sceptical of food packaging that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the reverse of the tin or packet. Some are only marginally lowered and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, onions and spring onions)
The onion family of vegetables is high in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is too little scientific proof available, allyl sulphides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce problems with blood circulation, arteriosclerosis and insomnia.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also help you lose weight, so make sure you add them to your diet system.
