The problems associated with reduced carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Eliminating carbs might mean missing out on necessary nutrients from 'good' carbohydrate foods which should be part of any well-balanced diet, especially those that we get from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Higher consumption of animal-based products could lead into increased consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a few authorities believe will increase the chance of coronary problems.

The onion and garlic range of vegetables is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
