Diet hints and tips

In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
The argument against low carb diets
Its extremely popular, but it is truly safe for you?
Most of the negative side effects stated, such as tiredness, bowel disorders, or headaches seem to pass quickly, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Whilst there is some evidence that indicates that reduced carbohydrate diets may help eliminate fat, some of this evidence has proved to be controversial between nutrition experts, and their safety record has been brought into question
Superfoods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes onion, brussels sprouts, soya beans & tea)
