Food Tips of the Week
Rather than thinking about which food types you really should leave out of your meal plan, focus on the nutritionally sound foods that you are able to introduce to your meal plan. If you manage to inject some nourishing grains and vegetables into your daily routine, you'll soon see that stop feeling hungry and have a significantl;y decreased risk of giving in to those damaging midday snacks.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Don't skip meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body must have energy, and carbs are a very efficient source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires more care in managing your energy intake, as any energy contributed by non-carbohydrate sources is far slower to act.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes guava, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring agent and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the reason for the red hue of many food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually improved by being heated.
Lycoprene's most interesting advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to block the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
