Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

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:
* Make low carbohydrate breadcrumbs for deep fried foods. Although you can probably buy low carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using low carb bread. Simply toast the low carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a baking tray. Once it is well toasted, grind it up in the food processor using a coarse blade. Store in a tupperware container.
