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 case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one point that is often overlooked, it is damned hard (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carb diet.
The majority of the undesirable side-effects claimed, such as persistent tiredness, stomach disorders, or bad headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
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.
