In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
The argument against low carb diets
Its extremely popular, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one point that is often overlooked, it is very difficult (though not technically impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a low 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.
