Food Tips of the Week
In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some low carb diet tips:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Some are only a little decreased and in some instances still higher than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are just the same.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes grapefruit, red bell peppers and baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a naturally occurring coloring agent and part of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is the agent responsible for the deep red colour of a good number of natural foods.
Usefully, unlike numerous vitamins, lycopene is not damaged during the cooking process, but is observably made more effective by going through the cooking process.
Its most valuable advantage is that it serves as an antioxidant and appears to be of use in the battle to reduce the probabilty of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most efficacious eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is connected with aging of the skin. It's also thought by many researchers to prevent the development of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
