Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
The problems associated with reduced carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Most of the unpleasant side-effects stated, such as tiredness, stomach disorders, or headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Reducing carbohydrates could mean missing out on required nutrients from 'good' carbohydrate foods which should be part of any well adjusted diet, particularly those provied by vegetables, grains and fruits.
The brassicas, Healthy superfoods that aid Weight loss
(includes Kale, Lettuce, Mustard greens and Rutabaga)
Altthough not always popular with children, these vegetables are jam-packed with vitamins (including vitamin c and folate), minerals (selenium and potassium, for example), fibre, chlorophyll, antioxidents, isothiocyanates, and indole-3-carbinol.
Over and above their numerous other beneficial effects, the isothiocyanates in these are thought by experts to significantly lower the risk of getting cancer.
