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 lower carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Eat regular meals
Most low carb recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbohydrates. Your body needs energy, and carbs are a highly efficient source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires more care in monitoring you energy intake, as the energy provided by fat or protein is less efficient.
* Food labels can be misleading
Watch out for food packaging that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the package. Many are only a little decreased and in some instances still greater than a competitors usual brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are the same.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, onions and welsh onion)
The onion family is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is very little scientific evidence obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought to help with antiinflammatory effect, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be a part of every diet system.
