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 argument against low carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe for you?
Remember, one point that is frequently overlooked, it is extremely hard (although certainly not impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a low carb diet.
Many scientific studies over the last few years have proved that exessive consumption of animal fat can lead to higher probability of cancer, coronary problems and other serious illnesses.
Foods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes citrus fruits, cabbage, scarlet runner bean and basil)
The nutrients called 'flavonoids' discovered in these fruit, vegetables and pulses are thought to have properties in preventing cancer.
Doctors researching the properties of flavonoids believe they also have most other health benefits, amongst them, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory capabilities.
The majority of these are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your diet system.
