Remember, one point that is often overlooked, it is very hard (although not totally impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carbohydrate diet.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, turnip greens and tomato puree)
These colorful plants have high levels of carotenes (alpha and beta) believed by scientists to play a role in helping stop cancer, spefically cancer of the lungs. The majority of these are also low in calories, so you should add them to your weight loss program.
