Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Don't miss meals
Most low carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbohydrates. Your body must have energy, and carbohydrates are a fast acting source of energy. A low carb diet needs great care in managing your intake of energy, as any energy given by fat or protein is much slower acting.
* Fiber is essential
Cutting the carbohydrates in your meals usually results in fiber reduction as well. Look for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.

These orange and green foods are rich in alpha-carotene and beta-carotene thought by doctors to play a role in helping stop cancer, particularly cancers of the stomach and lesophagus. Most are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss regime.
