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 argument against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its extremely popular, but it is truly safe for you?
The majority of the negative side effects stated, such as general tiredness, diarrhea, constipation, or headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Moreover, it has been suggested that the kidneys may be given too much work to do and that the consequential change in blood acid levels can result in bone loss, but some of the studies testing the hypothesis have struggled to find real evidence of damage to the kidneys or loss of bone.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, onions and welsh onion)
The onion family is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is very little scientific evidence obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought to help with antiinflammatory effect, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be a part of every diet system.
