Food Tips of the Week
Weight loss hints and tips
In planning a meal plan, the most important step is to make efforts to lower your intake of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
The case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Most of the negative side effects observed, such as persistent tiredness, stomach upsets, or bad headaches seem to be just temporary, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Reducing carbs may mean missing out on necessary nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which should be part of any sensible diet, particularly those that we get from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes guava, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring agent and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the reason for the red hue of many food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually improved by being heated.
Lycoprene's most interesting advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to block the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
