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 lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make low carbohydrate bread crumbs for breadcrumb coated foods.
Although you can possibly buy low carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can make them yourself by simply using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a baking tray. Once it is hard, grind it up in your food mill. To store, keep in a tupperware container.
* Don't skip meals
Most reduced carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body must have energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A reduced carbohydrate diet needs more care in managing your energy intake, as any energy given by protein and fat is much slower acting.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and spring onions)
The onion and garlic family of foods is high in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is precious little scientific proof available, allyl sulfides are also thought by many experts to help with blood circulation, sterilization and physical exhaustion.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also help you lose weight, so are ideal for including in your weight loss program.
