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 carb diet tips:
* Fiber is crucial
Cutting the carbs in your meals often leads to fiber reduction also. Check for low carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
* Make reduced carb bread crumbs for breaded foods.
Although you can sometimes buy reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the low carb bread in a gas or electric oven on a sheet of baking paper. When it is quite hard and crispy, grind it in your blender. Keep in an airtight jar or container.

The nutrient lypcopene is a non-synthetic compound used to color foods and one of the carotenid family. It is the reason for the deep red colour of a good number of fruits and vegetables.
Fortunately, unlike numerous nutritional compounds, this useful phytochemical not only survives being cooked, but is noticeably increased in efficacy by cooking.
Its most valuable theraputic value is that it serves as an antioxidant and appears to be an asset in the fight to lower the probabilty of developing cancer.
It is the most efficacious carotenoid quencher of singlet oxygen, which is linked with aging of the skin. It is also thought by many researchers to curtail the progression of atherosclerosis.
