The argument against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one fact that is usually overlooked, it is very difficult (though certainly not impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a low carb diet.
Increased consumption of animal-based products may lead into elevated consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which many authorities believe will increase the probability of heart conditions.
Healthy foods with carotenes
(includes carrots, collard greens and winter squash)
These orange and green vegetables and fruits have high levels of the carotenoids believed play a key role in cancer prevention, spefically cancer of the esophagus. Many are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss program.
