Tip 1

Real Meal Revolution

Need to know the carbohydrate content in the foods you are eating?  The Real Meal Revolution website has a list of foods broken down into three catagories: Green (safe to eat) Orange (use in moderation) and Red (foods to avoid). It's a great resource...

 

Not everyone is the same.  Some people are quite insulin resitant which means they are more carbohydrate intolerant than another person who is insulin sensative.  For the insulin resitant people amongst us, eating starchy vegetables is not a good idea.  In general though, if you are avoiding the processed carbohydrates and all of your carbohydrate intake is coming from vegetables, then the quantity of carbohydrate is naturally limited as it is attached to fibre.  

 

That Sugar App

Out shopping and need to know how much sugar content is in the food items you are planning to purchase? The World Health Organisation recommends no more than 6 teaspoons a day of added or "free" sugars for optimal health (3 teaspoons for a child 4-8 yrs old).  Product labeling can be confusing. That Sugar App will help you identify, make sense of and track the amount of added sugar in the food you are eating.
