Food Tips of the Week
Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Understand the food labels
Watch out for food labeling that proclaims 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Quite a few are only slightly lower and in some instances still more than a competitors usual brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.

Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so should be included in your weight loss program.
