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 carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Dietary fiber is essential
Lowering the carbohydrates in your diet often leads to reduction in fiber as well. Look for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carb recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbohydrates. Your body requires energy, and carbs are a very efficient energy source. A reduced carb diet needs more care in managing your energy intake, as any energy contributed by fat or protein is much slower acting.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes apricots, papaya & tomato puree)
The chemical lypcopene is a naturally occurring coloring agent and a member of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. It is accountable for the vivid red colour of many fruits and vegetables.
