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 low carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, 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 some authorities believe will increase the probability of heart disease.
Most of the negative side effects stated, such as feeling tired, constipation, diarrhea, or bad headaches seem to pass quickly, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, turnip greens and winter squash)
These natural foods are rich in carotenes (alpha and beta) believed to play a major part in minimizing the risk of cancer, spefically cancer of the stomach. Many are low in calories, so should be a part of every weight loss program.
