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:
* Make low carb breadcrumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods. While you can sometimes buy reduced carb breadcrumbs, you can make them yourself by using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in the oven on a sheet of cookie paper. When it is well browned, grind it in your blender. Store in an airtight jar or container.

Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, collard greens and tomato puree)
These orange and green natural foods are rich in carotenes believed by nutritionalists play a key role in minimizing the risk of cancer, particularly cancers of the stomach and lesophagus. A good number also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every weight loss program.
