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.
The argument against low carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one fact that is usually overlooked, it is very hard (though not totally impossible) for vegetarians to follow a reduced carb diet.
Reducing carbohydrates may mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which must be part of any sensible diet, in particular those obtained from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
Superfoods containing lycopene
(includes guava, papaya & tomato sauce)

Fortunately, unlike many other nutritional compounds, lycopene is not damaged if it is cooked, instead it is in actuality improved by going through the cooking process.
Its most important theraputic value is that it acts as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the battle to reduce the probabilty of cancer.
Lycopene is the most efficacious quencher of singlet oxygen, which is associated with skin aging. It's also thought to block the progression of atherosclerosis.
