Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading
Be sceptical of advertizing that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Many are only marginally reduced and in some instances still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are exactly the same.
Foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a natural compound and one of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is behind the red color of quite a few fruits and vegetables.
Usefully, unlike numerous nutritional compounds, it does not become less effective if cooked but is observably increased in efficacy by the cooking process.
Lycoprene's main advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the chances of developing cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to impede the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
