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 reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Make reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
While you can sometimes buy low carb bread crumbs, you can make them yourself by using reduced carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a sheet of cookie paper. When it is well toasted, whizz it in your food mill. To store, keep in an airtight jar.
* Food labels can be misleading
Be sceptical of food labeling that proclaims 'low carb' - check the actual nutritional information on the back of the tin or package. A good number of are only a little decreased and in some cases still higher than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identically the same.
