Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some low carbohydrate diet tips:
* Don't ignore the fiber Reducing the carbohydrates in your diet usually results in reduction in fiber as well. Look at reduced carbohydrate recipes that are high in fiber to redress this.

* Use reduced carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins. If you have converted your best loved chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, you donít want to add in those high carbohydrate 'real' chocolate. Break up a low carbohydrate bar of chocolate into little pieces and use that in its place.
