Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
The case against low carb diets

Remember, one fact that is often overlooked, it is very difficult (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a low carb diet.
The majority of the negative side effects reported, like feeling tired, stomach upsets, or bad headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Foods high in flavonoids
(inlcudes olive oil, broccoli, soy and tea)
The nutrients known as flavonoids discovered in these types of food are thought to have properties in preventing cancer.
Experts investigating the medical effects of flavonoids think they also have most other health benefits, including antiviral and antioxidant properties.
Most are also good for weight loss, so you should add them to your diet system.
