Diet hints and tips
In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Use splenda instead of sugar.
Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of a good substitute like splenda. It is not exactly the same so you will have to do a bit of trial and error and it might not work for everything, but it gives pretty good results most of the time.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Our bodies need energy, and carbs are a rapid acting energy source. A reduced carb diet needs extreme care in controlling your energy levels, as the energy provided by protein and fat is less efficient.
Lycopene super foods
(includes watermelon, red bell peppers & sweet gourd)
The nutrient lypcopene is a non-synthetic compound and part of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. It is the reason for the vivid red color of a good number of foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many other nutrients, lycopene is not damaged if it is cooked, but is observably increased in efficacy by being cooked.
Its key theraputic value is that it acts as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the probabilty of developing cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most effective quencher of singlet oxygen, which is connected with skin aging. It is also believed to slow down the growth of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
