Food Tips of the Week

Advice on losing weight

Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Your body requires water , it is crucial for our body's health and has no fat. It is also good in that it fills the drinker's belly and decreases feelings of emptiness. The recommended portions physicians claim that we should aim to drink as much as six cups of water every 24 hours.
Some reduced carb diet tips:
* Don't skip meals Most low carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbohydrates. Your body requires energy, and carbohydrates are a fast acting energy source. A low carb diet requires care and attention in managing your energy intake, as any energy contributed by non-carbohydrate sources is less efficient.

* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda. Most recipes that require sugar can be adapted to make use of splenda instead. It is not exactly the same so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it might not be perfect for everything, but it does a decent job once you get the measurements right.

Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, collard greens and tomato puree)
These orange and green natural foods are rich in carotenes believed by nutritionalists play a key role in minimizing the risk of cancer, particularly cancers of the stomach and lesophagus. A good number also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every weight loss program.
