The problems associated with reduced carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Cutting out carbohydrates might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which must be part of any well-balanced diet, especially those that we get from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Eating more animal-based products could lead into elevated consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a few authorities believe will increase the risk of heart problems.
Foods containing allyl sulfides

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.
