Weight loss hints and tips
In planning a meal plan, the most important step is to make efforts to lower your intake of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
The case against reduced carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Elevated consumption of animal-based products could lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a few authorities believe will increase the chance of heart conditions.
The majority of the unpleasant side-effects stated, such as general tiredness, stomach upsets, or bad headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Superfoods containing flavonoids
(inlcudes cranberry, kale, scarlet runner bean and basil)
The nutrients known as flavonoids which are present in these fruits and vegetables show promise as anti-carcinogens.
Doctors who have been studying the properties of flavonoids suspect that they may well also have many other health benefits, amongst them, anti-asthma and anti-platelet powers.
A good number are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss program.
