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 lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Use soy flour or bake mix.
When you have to use flour for baking, substitute it with soy flour or a baking mix like Atkins bake mix. In most situtations, you may convert your most popular recipes that use normal wheat flour to use these lowcarb alternatives.
* Understand the food labels
Watch out for the food label that proclaims 'low carb' - check the actual nutritional information on the reverse of the tin or packet. Some are only a little less and in some instances still more than a competitors usual brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are identical.
