Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
The problems associated with reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Eliminating carbs could mean missing out on essential nutrients from 'good' carbohydrate foods which must be part of any well-balanced diet, in particular those that we get from vegetables, fruits and grains.
Increased consumption of animal-based products could lead into increased consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which most authorities believe will increase the risk of coronary problems.
Flavonoid rich foods
(inlcudes onion, spinach, kidney bean & thyme)
The nutrients called 'flavonoids' which exist in these fruits and vegetables are believed to have properties in fighting cancer.
Experts studying the nutritional effects of flavonoids think that they may well also have many other benefits to our wellbeing, amongst them, anti-candida and antitumor properties.
The majority of these are low in calories, so should be included in your weight loss regime.
