Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
The case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one fact that is often overlooked, it is damned hard (although by no means impossible) for vegetarians to follow a low carbohydrate diet.
Cutting out carbs may mean missing out on necessary nutrients from healthy foods which should be part of any well adjusted diet, specifically those obtained from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes carrots, collard greens and tomato puree)
These orange and green healthy plants contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene thought to help in helping stop cancer, spefically cancer of the esophagus. A good number are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss regime.
