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 pointers:
* Dietary fiber is essential
Lowering the carbs in your meals usually leads to fiber reduction also. Look for low carb recipes that are high in fiber to redress this.
* Use soya flour or soya baking mix.
When you require flour for baked goods, substitute it with soya flour or a bake mix such as Atkins soy baking mix. In most cases, you can adapt your best loved recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these low carb alternatives.
Healthy foods with carotenes
(includes carrots, collard greens and winter squash)
These orange and green vegetables and fruits have high levels of the carotenoids believed play a key role in cancer prevention, spefically cancer of the esophagus. Many are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss program.
