A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
The argument against low carbohydrate diets
Its extremely popular, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Although there is considerable evidence that suggests that reduced carbohydrate diets may help reduce weight, some of this strong evidence has caused controversy between nutrition gurus, and their safety record has been challenged
Moreover, it has been suggested that the kidneys may be given too much work to do and that the related change in blood acid levels can result in bone damage, but some of the studies trying to test the theory have struggled to find any evidence of damage to the kidneys or bone damage.
Lycopene super foods
(includes watermelon, red bell peppers & sweet gourd)
The nutrient lypcopene is a non-synthetic compound and part of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. It is the reason for the vivid red color of a good number of foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many other nutrients, lycopene is not damaged if it is cooked, but is observably increased in efficacy by being cooked.
Its key theraputic value is that it acts as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the probabilty of developing cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most effective quencher of singlet oxygen, which is connected with skin aging. It is also believed to slow down the growth of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
