A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Most recipes that need sugar can be adapted to make use of a sugar replacement instead. It doesn't weigh the same so you will need to experiment a little and it might not work for every dish, but it gives pretty good results once you get the measurements right.
