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 extremely popular, but it is truly safe for you?
Cutting out carbohydrates could mean missing out on required nutrients from healthy foods which must be part of any well adjusted diet, especially those obtained from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
Eating more animal-based products may lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which some authorities believe will increase the risk of heart conditions.
Foods high in flavonoids
(inlcudes lettuce, kale, kidney bean and chamomile)
The compounds known as flavonoids which exist in these fruits and vegetables are believed to be good in helping to prevent cancer.
Nutritionalists researching the medical effects of flavonoids believe that they may well also have numerous other health benefits, including, but not limited to, anti-asthma and antiplatelet activities..
A good number are also good for weight loss, so should be included in every weight loss program.
