Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Dietary fiber is essential
Lowering the carbohydrates in your diet often leads to reduction in fiber as well. Look for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carb recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbohydrates. Your body requires energy, and carbs are a very efficient energy source. A reduced carb diet needs more care in managing your energy intake, as any energy contributed by fat or protein is much slower acting.
Superfoods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes garlic, fennel, kidney bean & peppermint)
The nutrients known as flavonoids which exist in these natural foods are believed to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Nutritionalists looking into the medical effects of flavonoids think they may well have most other health giving capabilities, including anti-dermatitis and antiplatelet properties.
The majority of these are also low in calories, so should be included in every diet.
