Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
The argument against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Reducing carbs might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which should be part of any sensible diet, in particular those provied by vegetables, grains and fruits.
Most of the unpleasant side-effects reported, such as general tiredness, stomach upsets, or headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, onions and spring onions)
The onion family of vegetables is high in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is too little scientific proof available, allyl sulphides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce problems with blood circulation, arteriosclerosis and insomnia.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also help you lose weight, so make sure you add them to your diet system.
