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 low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Don't ignore the fiber
Decreasing the carbohydrates in your meals usually leads to reduction in fiber also. Check for low carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
* It is possible to make superb smoothies by using low carbohydrate yogurt.
Admittedly, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can make them with low carb yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you will need to ensure you use fruit that is low in carbs and use all of the fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
