Food Tips of the Week

Dieting tips

If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
The problems associated with low carb diets
Its extremely popular, but it is really safe for you?
The majority of the undesirable side-effects reported, such as feeling tired, diarrhea, constipation, or headaches seem to pass quickly, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Moreover, it has been proposed that the kidneys may come under too much strain and that a related change in blood acidity levels can lead to bone damage, but some of the scientifc research trying to test the hypothesis have struggled to find significant evidence of damage to the kidneys or loss of bone.
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.
