Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
The argument against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Reducing carbs might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which should be part of any sensible diet, in particular those provied by vegetables, grains and fruits.
Most of the unpleasant side-effects reported, such as general tiredness, stomach upsets, or headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Superfoods containing lycopene
(includes guava, papaya & tomato sauce)
The nutrient lypcopene is a natural coloring agent and part of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. This chemical is responsible for the dark red color of some fruit and vegetables.
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.
