Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
The case against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Eating more animal-based products could lead into increased consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a good number of authorities believe will increase the chance of heart conditions.
Even though there is some research that illustrates that low carb diets may help elimate surplus fat, some of this evidence has resulted in many arguments between nutritionalists, and their safety record has been challenged
Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes cilantro, mangos and tomato ketchup)
These plants contain alpha and beta carotenes thought by experts to help in helping prevent cancer, particularly of the lung, esophagus and stomach. The majority of these are also good for weight loss, so should be included in every weight loss regime.
