Food Tips of the Week
Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Food labels can be misleading
Don't believe sales blurb that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the rear of the can or packet. Some are only a little lowered and in some cases still more than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are the same.
Super foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & tomato)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. Lycopene is behind the deep red hue of quite a few foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many nutritional compounds, lycopene does not degrade if cooked, but is in fact increased in efficacy by being heated.
Lycoprene's key value is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the fight to reduce the chances of cancer.
It is the most potent eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is linked with skin aging. It's also thought to curtail the progression of atherosclerosis.
