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 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.
