Food Tips of the Week
In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of the food label that claims 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the rear of the can or package. Many are only slightly reduced and in some cases still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.
* Dietary fiber is important
Cutting the carbs in your meals usually leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at low carbohydrate recipes that are high in fiber to redress this.
