Food Tips of the Week
At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
The case against reduced carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
The majority of the negative side effects claimed, like general tiredness, stomach disorders, or bad headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Whilst there is evidence that indicates that low carb diets can help achieve weight loss, some of this evidence has proved to be controversial among nutritionists, and their relative safety has been the cause of great debate
Superfoods containing lycopene
(includes apricot, red bell peppers & rosehip)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring compound and one of the carotenid family. It is behind the dark red color of some fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Unlike numerous nutrients, lycopene does not become less effective if subjected to heat, but is truly improved by being heated.
Its most important theraputic value is that it serves as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the risk of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the strongest fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with aging of the skin. It is also thought by many experts to hamper the progression of atherosclerosis.
