Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some low carb diet tips:
* Use soya flour or soy baking mix.
When you require flour for baked goods, repalce it with soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In most cases, you may change your favorite recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these lowcarb alternatives.
