If you are into baking, try using Soya flour instead of standard flour. It only has ~20g carbs per 100g (as opposed to ~70g for other types of flour) – but it does have a definite taste of nuts to it, so wont work in all recipes, and also it is heavier so you need to add baking powder. Also you can reduce any recipe’s sugar content by 1/3 and not even notice – and if you really want to go the whole hog, use one of the new temperature stable sweeteners (eg splenda, although Tesco do thier own at much lower price, so I’d guess other supermarkets do too) instead of any sugar – means you can eat ‘normal’ recipes at less than half the carbs – and no fat increase.
