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.
Some lower carb diet tips:
* Use soya flour or baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a soy baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In many cases, you may adapt your best loved recipes that use white flour to use these.
* Don't miss meals
Most low carb recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Your body must have energy, and carbohydrates are a quick acting source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires great care in managing your energy levels, as any energy contributed by protein and fat is far slower to act.

The nutrient lypcopene is a simple chemical compound and member of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. It is the reason for the red colour of some types of food.
Usefully, unlike numerous other healthy agents, lycopene does not become less effective if subjected to heat, but is genuinely strengthened by cooking.
Its most interesting medical value is that it acts as an antioxidant and appears to be an asset in the fight to lower the risk of developing cancer.
Lycopene is the most powerful eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is linked with aging of the skin. It is also believed to prevent the growth of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
