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 reduced carb diet tips:

* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar. Recipes that call for sugar can be changed to make use of splenda instead. It has a different density so you will need to experiment a little and it might not be perfect for everything, but it gives pretty good results most of the time.
