Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of sales blurb that claims 'low carb' - check the actual nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Many are only a little lower and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.
* Make reduced carb breadcrumbs for breaded foods.
Although you may be able to buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you may also make them by simply using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in your food mill. Store in an airtight container.
Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, collard greens and tomato puree)
These vegetables and fruits contain the carotenoids believed by many play a key role in helping stop cancer, particularly those cancers involving the esophagus and stomach. Most are also low in calories, so you should add them to your weight loss program.
