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 lower carb diet tips:
* Make reduced carb breadcrumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
Although you may be able to buy low carb breadcrumbs, you may make them yourself by using low carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the low carb bread in a pre-heated oven on a sheet of cookie paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in your food mill. To store, keep in an airtight container.
* Understand the food labels
Don't trust sales blurb that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Many are only marginally lower and in some cases still more than a competitors usual brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identically the same.
Superfoods containing lycopene
(includes guava, papaya & tomato sauce)
The nutrient lypcopene is a natural coloring agent and part of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. This chemical is responsible for the dark red color of some fruit and vegetables.
Fortunately, unlike many other nutritional compounds, lycopene is not damaged if it is cooked, instead it is in actuality improved by going through the cooking process.
Its most important theraputic value is that it acts as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the battle to reduce the probabilty of cancer.
Lycopene is the most efficacious quencher of singlet oxygen, which is associated with skin aging. It's also thought to block the progression of atherosclerosis.
