Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
The argument against low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Many scientific studies over the years have illustrated that high consumption of animal fat can lead to increased probability of cancer, heart problems and other inflammatory disorders.
Remember, one point that is often overlooked, it is very hard (although not totally impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carbohydrate diet.
Flavonoid rich foods
(inlcudes olive oil, spinach, adzuki bean & coriander)
