Food Tips of the Week
In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some reduced carb diet tips:
* Don't skip meals
Most low carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbohydrates. Your body requires energy, and carbohydrates are a fast acting energy source. A low carb diet requires care and attention in managing your energy intake, as any energy contributed by non-carbohydrate sources is less efficient.
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.
Most recipes that require sugar can be adapted to make use of splenda instead. It is not exactly the same so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it might not be perfect for everything, but it does a decent job once you get the measurements right.
Super foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & tomato)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. Lycopene is behind the deep red hue of quite a few foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many nutritional compounds, lycopene does not degrade if cooked, but is in fact increased in efficacy by being heated.
Lycoprene's key value is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the fight to reduce the chances of cancer.
It is the most potent eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is linked with skin aging. It's also thought to curtail the progression of atherosclerosis.
