Food Tips of the Week

Advice on losing weight

Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Your body requires water , it is crucial for our body's health and has no fat. It is also good in that it fills the drinker's belly and decreases feelings of emptiness. The recommended portions physicians claim that we should aim to drink as much as six cups of water every 24 hours.
Some lower carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Eat regular meals Most low carbohydrate recipes are, rather obviously, low in carbs. Your body requires energy, and carbs are a rapid acting source of energy. A low carb diet needs more care in monitoring you energy intake, as the energy provided by non-carbohydrate sources is far slower to act.

Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, collard greens and tomato puree)
These orange and green natural foods are rich in carotenes believed by nutritionalists play a key role in minimizing the risk of cancer, particularly cancers of the stomach and lesophagus. A good number also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every weight loss program.
