Food Tips of the Week
Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
The problems associated with reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Eliminating carbs could mean missing out on essential nutrients from 'good' carbohydrate foods which must be part of any well-balanced diet, in particular those that we get from vegetables, fruits and grains.
Increased consumption of animal-based products could lead into increased consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which most authorities believe will increase the risk of coronary problems.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, mangos and winter squash)
These colorful foods are rich in carotenes thought by doctors to play a role in helping prevent cancer, spefically cancer of the stomach and lesophagus. Many also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet.
