Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
Some reduced carb diet tips:
* Don't skip meals
Most low carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbohydrates. Your body requires energy, and carbohydrates are a fast acting energy source. A low carb diet requires care and attention in managing your energy intake, as any energy contributed by non-carbohydrate sources is less efficient.
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.
Most recipes that require sugar can be adapted to make use of splenda instead. It is not exactly the same so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it might not be perfect for everything, but it does a decent job once you get the measurements right.
