Food Tips of the Week
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 pointers:
* Understand the food labels
Watch out for food labeling that proclaims 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Quite a few are only slightly lower and in some instances still more than a competitors usual brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes apricots, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a simple compound used to color foods and part of the carotenid family. This chemical is accountable for the dark red color of a good number of fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Fortunately, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical does not become less effective if heated during cooking, but is noticeably enhanced by being cooked.
Its most interesting nutritional contribution is that it behaves as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the most potent fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to prevent the progression of atherosclerosis.
