Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
The problems associated with reduced carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Multiple studies recently have shown that eating too much animal fat causes increased probability of cancer, heart conditions and other inflammatory disorders.
Eating more animal-based products might lead into increased consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which most authorities believe will increase the risk of heart disease.
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.
