Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
The case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Eating more animal-based products might lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a good number of authorities believe will increase the risk of coronary disease.
Although there is some anecdotal evidence that suggests that reduced carbohydrate diets can help with your weight loss program, some of this some anecdotal evidence has caused controversy among nutritionists, and their relative safety has been challenged
Healthy foods with carotenes
(includes carrots, collard greens and winter squash)
These orange and green vegetables and fruits have high levels of the carotenoids believed play a key role in cancer prevention, spefically cancer of the esophagus. Many are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss program.
