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 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.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, rose hip puree and tomato ketchup)
These colorful healthy superfoods contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene believed by doctors play a key role in cancer prevention, specifically those cancers involving the stomach and lesophagus. Many are low in calories, so are ideal for including in your diet.
