Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some low carbohydrate diet tips:
* Don't forget the fiber
Cutting the carbohydrates in your diet usually leads to fiber reduction also. Look out for reduced carb recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for cookies and muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your tasty chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, it would be crazy to put in those high carbohydrate full-sugar chocolate. Break up a reduced carbohydrate choccie bar into little pieces and use that as an alternative.
