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 case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one point that is often overlooked, it is damned hard (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carb diet.
The majority of the undesirable side-effects claimed, such as persistent tiredness, stomach disorders, or bad headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, chives and green onion)
The onion, leek and garlic range of vegetables is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe may be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is very little definitive proof published, allyl sulfides are also thought by many experts to reduce symptoms with blood circulation, arteriosclerosis and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also help you lose weight, so are ideal for including in your weight loss regime.
