Food Tips of the Week
At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
The case against low carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one fact that is usually overlooked, it is very difficult (although by no means impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carb diet.
Cutting out carbs could mean missing out on needed nutrients from healthy foods which should be part of any sensible diet, specifically those obtained from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes eschalot, onions and welsh onion)
The onion and garlic family of vegetables is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is not enough, definitive proof present, allyl sulphides are also thought by many experts to reduce symptoms with colds, sterilization and insomnia.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be a part of every diet system.
