A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Don't skip meals
Most reduced carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. We all need energy, and carbs are a highly efficient energy source. A lower carb diet requires care and attention in managing your intake of energy, as any energy contributed by non-carbohydrate sources is far slower to act.
* Use soy flour or soya baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baking, substitute soya flour or a soy baking mix like Atkins soya baking mix. In most situtations, you can convert your favorite recipes that use white flour to make use of these.
