Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
The case against low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Elevated consumption of animal-based products might lead into raised consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which most authorities believe will increase the probability of heart conditions.
Remember, one point that is frequently overlooked, it is extremely hard (though not technically impossible) for vegetarians to follow a reduced carb diet.
Foods high in flavonoids
(inlcudes olive oil, broccoli, soy and tea)
The nutrients known as flavonoids discovered in these types of food are thought to have properties in preventing cancer.
Experts investigating the medical effects of flavonoids think they also have most other health benefits, including antiviral and antioxidant properties.
Most are also good for weight loss, so you should add them to your diet system.
