A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some reduced carb diet tips:
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Recipes that call for sugar can be changed to make use of splenda instead. It has a different density so you will need to experiment a little and it might not be perfect for everything, but it gives pretty good results most of the time.
