Food Tips of the Week
At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Replace sugar with splenda.
Many recipes that use sugar can be modified to make use of a sugar substitute like splenda. It doesn't weigh the same so you will need to expirement with it and it might not be perfect for everything, but it does bake up nice for the most part.
* Know what is in your food
Don't believe food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the actual nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Quite a few are only marginally less and in some instances still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.
