Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* You can create really nice smoothies with reduced carbohydrate yogurt.
Admittedly, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you are missing your smoothies you can throw them together with reduced carb yogurt and fruit. Obviously, you will need to make sure you use only fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole fruit as the fiber is important too.
* Make low carb bread crumbs for deep fried foods.
Whilst you can sometimes buy low carb breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a sheet of baking paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in the food processor or blender. To store, keep in an airtight jar or container.
Foods high in flavonoids

Nutritionalists researching the medical effects of flavonoids believe that they may well also have numerous other health benefits, including, but not limited to, anti-asthma and antiplatelet activities..
A good number are also good for weight loss, so should be included in every weight loss program.
