The substances with antioxidant power present in red foods are in particular anthocyanins and lycopene. But minerals such as potassium and magnesium and vitamins such as C and folic acid are also beneficial for our body.
Not only useful for promoting purification and weight loss, these foods rich in water and nutrients also carry out a prevention activity against cancer and cardiovascular diseases, help the well-being of sight, bones, teeth and more.
The only advice of this diet is to include a large variety of red foods in your diet every day. Practically most of the foods must be part of this category and all the others must be strongly limited (if not eliminated). It goes without saying that such a restrictive diet can be carried on for a few days.
