SAM WOOD RAISES A TOAST TO SUMMER WITH HELGA’S LOWER CARB


25 November 2015: In a bid to help Australians ‘carbdown’ for summer, Helga’s has recruited fitness expert Sam Wood to develop a 30 day meal and exercise plan featuring Helga’s Lower Carb breads and wraps.

Full of simple and quick tips, the 30 day meal and exercise plan draws on Sam’s 15 years’ experience in the fitness industry as a personal trainer and gym owner – and can be used to ‘carbdown’. The recipes, which are inspired by the Helga’s Lower Carb range, are delicious, fresh, quick and easy, while the exercises include simple changes that can be made to everyday routines to burn those extra calories. Sandwich press anyone?

“As a personal trainer, I see so many people wanting to lose a few kilos and tone up for summer,” says Sam. “It’s always a last minute race to the finish line when the sun comes out and people aren’t feeling 100% body confident.

“I want to encourage people to take simple steps to ‘carbdown’ for summer. It doesn’t have to be difficult and with the Helga’s Lower Carb range, there’s no need to compromise on taste either.”Article Post2

Not only do these delicious, satisfying breads and wraps offer 25% less carbohydrates, the Helga’s Lower Carb range is higher in protein and contains no artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.

In order to produce the Helga’s Lower Carb bread range, the clever bakers at Helga’s replaced some of the wheat with a mix of seeds. Helga’s Lower Carb bread comes in three variants; the Lower Carb Wholemeal and Seed, Lower Carb 5 Seeds, and Lower Carb Soy & Toasted Sesame.

In addition, new Helga’s Lower Carb Wholemeal wraps are now available in supermarkets nationwide.
