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 low carb diet tips:
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Many recipes that need sugar can be modified to make use of splenda. It is much lighter so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work for every dish, but it does bake up nice in most cases.
* Don't skip meals
Most low carbohydrate recipes are, well...., low in carbohydrates. Your body requires energy, and carbohydrates are a very efficient source of energy. A low carbohydrate diet needs more care in monitoring you energy levels, as any energy contributed by non-carbohydrate sources is far slower to act.
