Food Tips of the Week
Diet hints and tips
In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Use low carbohydrate chocolate for cookies and muffins.
Once you have converted your favorite chocolate cookie or muffins recipe using soy flour, you really don't want to add in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Cut up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny chunks and use that as an alternative.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbs. Your body requires energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A low carbohydrate diet needs care and attention in managing your energy intake, as the energy provided by protein and fat is far slower to act.
Foods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes citrus fruits, cabbage, scarlet runner bean and basil)
The nutrients called 'flavonoids' discovered in these fruit, vegetables and pulses are thought to have properties in preventing cancer.
Doctors researching the properties of flavonoids believe they also have most other health benefits, amongst them, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory capabilities.
The majority of these are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your diet system.
