Food Tips of the Week
In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
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.
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.
