Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Dietary fiber is important
Decreasing the carbs in your meals usually leads to fiber reduction also. Look out for low carb recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for breaded foods.
While you can sometimes buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using reduced carb bread. Simply toast the low carb bread in your oven on a sheet of baking paper. When it is well toasted, process it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Keep in a tupperware jar or container.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, leeks and welsh onion)

Even though there is little definitive proof obtainable, allyl sulfides are also thought by many researchers to reduce symptoms with blood circulation, sterilization and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your diet system.
