Food Tips of the Week
At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
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.

( includes pickled shallots, leeks and spring onions)

Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so should be included in your weight loss program.
