Food Tips of the Week

Dieting tips

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 problems associated with low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one point that is usually overlooked, it is damned hard (although not technically impossible) for vegetarians to take up a reduced carb diet.
Reducing carbs may mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy foods which should be part of any sensible diet, specifically those obtained from fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
Flavonoid foods
(inlcudes garlic, spinach, adzuki bean & tea)

The nutrients called 'flavonoids' present in these food types are thought by nutritionalists to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Researchers researching the effects of flavonoids think they might also have numerous other healthy properties, amongst them, anti-dermatitis and antiplatelet capabilities.
The majority of these also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet system.
