It was the message consistently presented by the American Heart Association (they still recommend limiting saturated fat). And it's what the science pointed us to believe: cut down on saturated fat because it's linked to an increased risk of heart disease. So what did we do? Replaced bacon with muffins, chose sugary cereals over buttered toast and eggs, and almost always went for the low-fat option—which usually meant more sugar in our diets. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_news_blog/what_the_sugar_industry_didnt_want_us_to_know_about_heart_disease#comments Food News Blog Health Lisa Valente, M.S., R.D.

Almost immediately, she began rubbing her lips and face uncontrollably. Helplessly, I watched as tiny pink hives began to appear all over her face. As a new mom, it was a terrifying experience. In hindsight, though, it was a relatively minor reaction compared to when she ate cashews and we had to rush her to the ER. And we would relive it again when some noodles at a restaurant made her lips swell. And then again when her little brother tried eggs for the first time. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/health_blog/a_delicious_allergy_friendly_meal_everyone_will_love#comments Health Blog Health Penelope Wall Diet, Nutrition & Health Mon, 09 May 2016 20:01:51 +0000 kurtschulitz 288550 at http://www.eatingwell.com Can Some Foods Help Your Body Detox? http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/health_blog/can_some_foods_help_your_body_detox <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/health_blog/can_some_foods_help_your_body_detox" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/SD4380_0.JPG" alt="Can Some Foods Help Your Body Detox?

But it’s easy enough for any average Joe to follow a carb-cycling diet, which is perhaps why it’s gone mainstream. When you cycle your carb intake, you vary how many carbs you eat throughout the week, with some days being low-carb (2½ to 5 servings) and others high-carb (10 to 20 servings). The thinking is that your low-carb days put you in a fat-burning state and eating high-carb boosts your metabolism. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/carb_cycling_to_lose_weight#comments Diet Blog Brierley Wright, M.S., R.D.
