Food Tips of the Week

Some low carb diet guidlines:
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for cookies and muffins.

* Don't skip meals
Most low carbohydrate recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbs. We all need energy, and carbs are a very efficient source of energy. A low carbohydrate diet requires great care in controlling your intake of energy, as any energy contributed by fat or protein is much slower acting.
