Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
The argument against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Although there is some evidence that indicates that low carbohydrate diets can help elimate surplus fat, some of this evidence has resulted in many arguments between nutrition experts, and their safety has been the cause of great debate
Eliminating carbs may mean missing out on required nutrients from healthy foods which must be part of any sensible diet, particularly those obtained from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
Foods containing lycopene
(includes apricot, papaya & tomatoes)
The chemical lypcopene is a simple coloring compound and member of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is the agent responsible for the dark red colour of many foods.
Unlike most other vitamins, lycopene does not become less effective if cooked but is in actuality improved by going through the cooking process.
Lycoprene's main medical value is that it behaves as an antioxidant and is thought to be of use in the fight to reduce the probabilty of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most powerful carotenoid quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It's also thought by many researchers to hamper the progression of atherosclerosis.
