Food Tips of the Week
At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
The case against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Many scientific studies over the years have shown that exessive consumption of animal fat can result in greater risk of cancer, heart disease and other serious illnesses.
Eliminating carbohydrates might mean missing out on needed nutrients from 'good' carbohydrate foods which should be part of any well adjusted diet, specifically those that we get from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, onions and spring onions)
The alliaceae 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 very little real proof published, allyl sulphides are also thought to aid in blood circulation, arteriosclerosis and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss regime.
