Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Replace sugar with splenda.
Many recipes that use sugar can be modified to make use of a sugar substitute like splenda. It doesn't weigh the same so you will need to expirement with it and it might not be perfect for everything, but it does bake up nice for the most part.
* Know what is in your food
Don't believe food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the actual nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Quite a few are only marginally less and in some instances still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.
