Diet hints and tips
In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
The argument against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Moreover, it has been proposed that the kidneys may be given too much work to do and that the resultant change in blood acid levels can result in the loss of bone, but some of the scientific studies trying to test the theory have struggled to find real evidence of deterioration of the kidneys or loss of bone.
Most of the undesirable side-effects claimed, like persistent tiredness, constipation, diarrhea, or headaches seem to pass quickly, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, turnip greens and tomato puree)
These colorful plants have high levels of carotenes (alpha and beta) believed by scientists to play a role in helping stop cancer, spefically cancer of the lungs. The majority of these are also low in calories, so you should add them to your weight loss program.
