Food Tips of the Week

Weight loss hints and tips

In planning a meal plan, the most important step is to make efforts to lower your intake of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
The problems associated with low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one point that is usually overlooked, it is damned hard (although not technically impossible) for vegetarians to take up a reduced carb diet.
Reducing carbs may mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy foods which should be part of any sensible diet, specifically those obtained from fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
Carotenoid foods
(includes cilantro, turnip greens and winter squash)
These colorful healthy plants are rich in the carotenoids believed by nutritionalists be a key nutrient in minimizing the risk of cancer, particularly those cancers involving the lung, esophagus and stomach. Most are low in calories, so you should add them to your weight loss regime.
