Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
If you enjoy your food, but want to become thin and also improve your overall physical condition, then, as most people know, you should follow a meticulously prepared wholesome dietary regime. Theoretically, this needs to involve 5 standard portions of grains, cereals and vegetables every day and also contain the optimum fusion of important nutrients.
Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Use soy flour or baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In most cases, you may convert your most popular recipes that use conventional wheat flour to use these lowcarb alternatives.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body must have energy, and carbohydrates are a fast acting energy source. A reduced carbohydrate diet needs great care in monitoring you energy levels, as the energy provided by non-carbohydrate sources is far slower to act.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes guava, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring agent and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the reason for the red hue of many food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually improved by being heated.
Lycoprene's most interesting advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to block the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
