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:
* Use soya flour or baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a soy baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In many cases, you may adapt your best loved recipes that use white flour to use these.
* Don't miss meals
Most low carb recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Your body must have energy, and carbohydrates are a quick acting source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires great care in managing your energy levels, as any energy contributed by protein and fat is far slower to act.
Super foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & tomato)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. Lycopene is behind the deep red hue of quite a few foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many nutritional compounds, lycopene does not degrade if cooked, but is in fact increased in efficacy by being heated.
Lycoprene's key value is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the fight to reduce the chances of cancer.
It is the most potent eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is linked with skin aging. It's also thought to curtail the progression of atherosclerosis.
