Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
The case against reduced carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
The majority of the negative side effects claimed, like general tiredness, stomach disorders, or bad headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Whilst there is evidence that indicates that low carb diets can help achieve weight loss, some of this evidence has proved to be controversial among nutritionists, and their relative safety has been the cause of great debate
Superfoods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes onion, brussels sprouts, soya beans & tea)
The large family of compounds known as flavonoids found in these food types are thought by experts to have properties in fighting cancer.
Doctors who have been studying the medical effects of flavonoids think that they might also have many other healthy benefits, including anti-candida and anti-inflammatory powers.
Most are also good for weight loss, so should be included in every weight loss program.
