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 lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of advertizing that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the tin or package. Quite a few are only slightly reduced and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.
* It is possible to make really nice smoothies by using low carbohydrate yogurt.
Yes, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you love smoothies you can make perfectly acceptable alternatives by using reduced carbohydrate yogurt and fruit. Of course, you will need to ensure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole of the fruit as you need the fiber.
(includes paprika, rose hip puree and tomato ketchup)
These colorful healthy superfoods have high levels of carotenes thought to play a role in minimizing the chances of contracting, particularly of the esophagus. A good number also have a low calorie count, so should be included in your diet system.
