Food Tips of the Week

A few tips on healthy eating

In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
The argument against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Increased consumption of animal-based products may lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which many authorities believe will increase the chance of heart problems.
Moreover, it has been suggested that the kidneys can be given too much work to do and that the resulting change in blood acidity causes bone loss, but some of the scientific studies testing the theory have failed to find significant evidence of damage to the kidneys or bone damage.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, turnip greens and tomato puree)
These colorful plants have high levels of carotenes (alpha and beta) believed by scientists to play a role in helping stop cancer, spefically cancer of the lungs. The majority of these are also low in calories, so you should add them to your weight loss program.
