Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate for cookies and muffins.
If you have gone to the trouble of converting your favorite chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soy flour, it would be crazy to put in those high carb chocolate chips. Chop up a reduced carb bar of chocolate into small pieces and use that as an alternative.
* Replace sugar with splenda.
Recipes that call for sugar can be modified to make use of a sugar substitute like splenda. It doesn't weigh the same so you will have to expirement with it and it might not be perfect for every dish, but it gives very good results in most cases.
