Dieting made easy

Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body needs energy, and carbs are a rapid acting energy source. A low carb diet requires extreme care in managing your intake of energy, as the energy provided by protein and fat is less efficient.

Even though there is not enough, definitive proof available, allyl sulfides are also thought by nutritionalists to aid in antiinflammatory effect, arteriosclerosis and physical exhaustion.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so make sure you add them to your weight loss regime.
