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 case against low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Many studies over the last few years have shown that eating too much animal fat causes increased risk of cancer, heart conditions and other serious illnesses.
Elevated consumption of animal-based products might lead into elevated consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which many authorities believe will increase the probability of coronary disease.

(inlcudes olive oil, broccoli, soy and tea)
