Food Tips of the Week

Advice on losing weight

Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
The argument against low carb diets
Its extremely popular, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one fact that is often overlooked, it is extremely hard (though not totally impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a low carbohydrate diet.
Scientific studies over recent years have proved that exessive consumption of animal fat can result in higher risk of cancer, heart disease and other serious conditions.
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.
