Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
The problems associated with reduced carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Most of the unpleasant side-effects stated, such as tiredness, stomach disorders, or headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Reducing carbohydrates could mean missing out on required nutrients from 'good' carbohydrate foods which should be part of any well adjusted diet, particularly those provied by vegetables, grains and fruits.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes guava, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring agent and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the reason for the red hue of many food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually improved by being heated.
Lycoprene's most interesting advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to block the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
