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 carb diets

Moreover, it has been hypothesised that the kidneys can become stressed and that the resultant change in blood acidity levels can cause the loss of bone, but some of the studies testing the hypothesis have found no evidence of deterioration of the kidneys or bone damage.
Remember, one point that is frequently overlooked, it is very difficult (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to follow a low carbohydrate diet.
Foods containing carotenes
