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 truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one point that is often overlooked, it is very hard (although by no means impossible) for vegetarians to follow a low carb diet.
Reducing carbs might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which should be part of any well-balanced diet, especially those that we get from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Flavonoid rich foods
(inlcudes onion, spinach, kidney bean & thyme)
The nutrients called 'flavonoids' which exist in these fruits and vegetables are believed to have properties in fighting cancer.
Experts studying the nutritional effects of flavonoids think that they may well also have many other benefits to our wellbeing, amongst them, anti-candida and antitumor properties.
The majority of these are low in calories, so should be included in your weight loss regime.
