Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
The argument against low carb diets
Its extremely popular, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
The majority of the bad side-effects stated, like general tiredness, bowel disorders, or bad headaches seem to pass quickly, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Eating more animal-based products might lead into increased consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which some authorities believe will increase the risk of coronary disease.
Lycopene super foods
(includes apricot, papaya & baby jackfruit)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic compound used to color foods and member of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. This chemical is accountable for the deep red colour of quite a few natural foods.
Fortunately, unlike numerous nutrients, it does not become less effective if cooked but is genuinely improved by the cooking process.
Its most valuable health contribution is that it works as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risks of cancer.
Lycopene is the most powerful carotenoid quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with aging of the skin. It's also believed to curtail the development of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
