Food Tips of the Week
In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some lower carb diet tips:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. Many are only a little less and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are just the same.
* Fiber is crucial
Lowering the carbohydrates in your diet usually results in fiber reduction as well. Look at reduced carb recipes that are fiber-rich to redress this.

Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, it is not damaged if it is cooked, but is really increased in efficacy by being cooked.
Its most valuable value is that it serves as an antioxidant and appears to help to lower the chances of developing cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most efficacious fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It's also thought by many experts to block the development of atherosclerosis.
