Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Use low carbohydrate chocolate for cookies and muffins.
Once you have converted your favorite chocolate cookie or muffins recipe using soy flour, you really don't want to add in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Cut up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny chunks and use that as an alternative.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbs. Your body requires energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A low carbohydrate diet needs care and attention in managing your energy intake, as the energy provided by protein and fat is far slower to act.
Lycopene super foods
(includes apricot, red bell peppers & rosehip)
The nutrient lypcopene is a naturally occurring chemical compound and a member of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is accountable for the red color of quite a few natural foods.
Usefully, unlike most other nutritional compounds, this useful phytochemical does not degrade if cooked, but is noticeably increased in efficacy by cooking.
Lycoprene's most valuable health contribution is that it is an antioxidant and appears to be an asset in the battle to lower the risks of developing cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most potent fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It's also believed to slow down the growth of atherosclerosis.
