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 problems associated with reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe for you?
Reducing carbohydrates might mean missing out on required nutrients from 'good' carbohydrate foods which should be part of any well adjusted diet, specifically those obtained from vegetables, fruits and grains.
Increased consumption of animal-based products might lead into elevated consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which most authorities believe will increase the probability of coronary problems.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, onions and spring onions)
The onion, leek and garlic family is high in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is not enough, hard medical proof available, allyl sulphides are also thought by many experts to reduce the symptoms of colds, sterilization and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss program.
