The problems associated with low carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe for you?

Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, mangos and tomato ketchup)
These fruits and vegetables are rich in alpha-carotene and beta-carotene believed by nutritionalists to play a major part in helping prevent cancer, spefically cancer of the stomach and lesophagus. A good number also help you lose weight, so are ideal for including in your weight loss program.
