Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
The case against low carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Remember, one point that is usually overlooked, it is very difficult (though certainly not impossible) for vegetarians to take up a low carb diet.
Moreover, it has been hypothesised that the kidneys may be given too much work to do and that the resulting change in blood acidity levels can cause bone damage, but some of the studies trying to test the theory have struggled to find real evidence of damaged kidneys or bone damage.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes grapefruit, red bell peppers and sweet gourd)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. This chemical is responsible for the vivid red colour of a good number of food types.
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.
