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 pointers:
* Fiber is important:
Decreasing the carbs in your diet often results in reduction in fiber also. Look out for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are fiber-rich to restore the balance.
* Use low carb chocolate for cookies and muffins.
Once you have converted your favorite chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, you really shouldn't mix in those high carbohydrate 'real' chocolate. Chop up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.
Lycopene super foods
(includes apricot, papaya & baby jackfruit)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic compound used to color foods and member of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. This chemical is accountable for the deep red colour of quite a few natural foods.
Fortunately, unlike numerous nutrients, it does not become less effective if cooked but is genuinely improved by the cooking process.
Its most valuable health contribution is that it works as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risks of cancer.
Lycopene is the most powerful carotenoid quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with aging of the skin. It's also believed to curtail the development of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
