Food Tips of the Week
Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
The argument against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Increased consumption of animal-based products may lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which many authorities believe will increase the chance of heart problems.
Moreover, it has been suggested that the kidneys can be given too much work to do and that the resulting change in blood acidity causes bone loss, but some of the scientific studies testing the theory have failed to find significant evidence of damage to the kidneys or bone damage.
Superfoods containing flavonoids
(inlcudes cranberry, kale, soy and tea)
The large family of compounds known as flavonoids which are present in these natural foods are thought to have properties in preventing cancer.
Medical experts studying the nutritional effects of flavonoids believe that they may also have numerous other health benefits, including, but not limited to, anti-dermatitis and anti-platelet properties.
The majority of these are also good for weight loss, so make sure you add them to your weight loss regime.
