If you manage to inject some nourishing grains and vegetables into your daily routine, you'll soon see that stop feeling hungry and have a significantl;y decreased risk of giving in to those damaging midday snacks.
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.
Flavonoid rich foods
(inlcudes citrus fruits, asparagus, garden pea & basil)
The compounds known as flavonoids discovered in these natural foods are thought by nutritionalists to have properties in preventing cancer.
Medical experts investigating the effects of flavonoids think that they may well have most other health giving capabilities, amongst them, anti-dermatitis and antioxidant properties.
Many also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet.
