Foods High in Vitamin D

LifeStyle
When you think of vitamin D, you probably think of spending more time outdoors. Vitamin D can be produced naturally by the body, but in order to trigger this, it is necessary to get exposure to direct sunlight.

Examples include white bread, chocolate bars, fizzy soda drinks and more. All these things...

Foods That Are Low Glycemic

LifeStyle
Going low carb is all the rage at the moment and it’s actually for good reason. Turns out that carbs can do a fair amount of damage in our bodies and that they might just be responsible for a lot of health problems that you had just kind of accepted as par for the course. For instance, carbohydrates are well known to cause a spike in blood sugar. This is because carbohydrates are essentially foods that provide the purest kind of sugar and this then gets absorbed very quickly into our body. This in turn causes a spike and that is followed by a spike in insulin – the hormone that is used to regulate and control blood sugar levels. This then causes the energy to be taken up and unless you need it right away, it will be stored as fat. The high amounts of sugar in your blood can cause dam...
