Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
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 containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, leeks and welsh onion)
The onion and garlic family of foods 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 precious little hard medical proof obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce the symptoms of colds, arteriosclerosis and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be included in your diet system.
