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 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 pickled shallots, leeks and spring onions)
The onion, leek and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not much scientific proof at hand, allyl sulfides are also believed to aid in antiinflammatory effect, arteriosclerosis and physical exhaustion.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so should be included in your weight loss program.
