* Replace sugar with splenda.
Recipes that call for sugar can be changed to make use of a sugar substitute like splenda. It has a different density so you will need to expirement with it and it might not be perfect for every dish, but it does a decent job most of the time.
* Use reduced carb chocolate for chocolate cookies and muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your tasty chocolate cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, you really shouldn't mix in those high carb sugar-rich chocolate. Chop up a reduced carbohydrate chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.
