Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
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.
Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes carrots, collard greens and tomato puree)
These orange and green healthy plants contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene thought to help in helping stop cancer, spefically cancer of the esophagus. A good number are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss regime.
