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.
Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, turnip greens and winter squash)
These natural foods are rich in carotenes (alpha and beta) believed to play a major part in minimizing the risk of cancer, spefically cancer of the stomach. Many are low in calories, so should be a part of every weight loss program.
