Healthy Eating

The desire to lose weight is often the main in the activities of many women, but many in their quest just overdo the stick. It is not surprising that instead of a fresh face and a beautiful figure, as a result of a number of actions, a whole bouquet of diseases is obtained – gastritis, beriberi, and others. The main reason is that it is necessary to listen to the opinion of specialists who strongly recommend regulating the diet with a nutritionist. Instead, people are engaged in collecting and replicating a number of myths about healthy nutrition, creating their own “proven”, but for some reason harmful diet. Consider a number of myths about separate nutrition.

Food contributes to losing weight, it is useful in its essence.

Initially, the human digestive system is programmed by nature for mixed nutrition. After all, those enzymes that are produced by the pancreas and stomach, can simultaneously digest both proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. But to consider that a separate diet contributes to weight loss, it will be a mistake. Scientists tested two groups of people who were offered a low-calorie diet. One of them ate on the principle of separate food, and the other used mixed food. It turned out that the changes in the weight of the subjects in both groups were the same. Indeed, while observing the principles of separate nutrition, many people lose weight, but it should be associated with strict selection of products. People willy-nilly reduce the total calorie content of their diet, which leads to weight loss.

When you watch TV you can not, because the food is poorly digested, which can subsequently lead to the emergence of gastritis.

But doctors consider nutritionists the very opposite – the assimilation of food from those who watch TV, is successful. The fact is that people who chew in front of the screen, usually do not rush anywhere. Therefore, the process of chewing food is slower and more thorough. Food enters the stomach already in a crushed form, it is well saturated with digestive juices. But the snack on the run just increases the risk of gastritis.

That the figure was better, it is necessary to eat less fat, and it is better to refuse them at all.

Indeed, the fastest way to lose weight can be by limiting the consumption of fatty foods. But fats for the body are useful and necessary, because they help the proper metabolism. Without fat vitamins A and E are not absorbed at all, sex hormones cease to be produced. If the body does not get enough fat, the liver suffers, and the skin grows older. Therefore, you can not completely exclude from the diet, say, vegetable oil, you should reasonably limit its consumption. But the products that contain hidden fats, you should still eat less. After all, they are often harmful – it’s about sausages, cakes, cookies, mayonnaise.

Fat from butter, but from vegetable oil – no.

Since cholesterol does not contain vegetable oil, it is useful for vessels and heart. However, butter is noticeably lower in calorie content, it has water and proteins, and vegetable is pure fat. Therefore, you can recover from any of these two types of oils.

Black bread does not get better, because it has more fiber and vitamins than white.

The black color of bread does not mean that it contains a lot of fiber. After all, such a shade can be a consequence of the use of caramel dyes. And the calorific value for both white and black bread is almost the same, so you can recover in that, and in that case. If you are looking for the most useful bread, doctors recommend consumption of bread with bran and unleavened bread from whole grains, also pay attention to muesli with cereals.

The more liquids consumed, the more slags are eliminated from the body, so you should drink at least 2 liters of water a day.

The term “slag” generally causes confusion in doctors, because there is no definite connection between these “slags” and specific substances.Often, for the slag take in general all the toxic substances that leave the body, but the rate of their release is completely independent of the amount of liquid drunk. Such substances leave the body at a constant rate, only the density of urine changes. Therefore, only the body’s load of water alone will not give anything. In a lot of liquid there is another benefit. It was found that those who consume 1.5-2 liters of fluid every day have fewer kidney stones, and they also have fewer constipation.

During the summer, the body accumulates vitamins, so we meet the winter fully prepared for the cold.

In fact, only fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K accumulate in the body. And in vegetables and fruits that we eat in the summer, there are mainly water-soluble vitamins: vitamin C, folic acid. Such substances from the body are quickly removed, for a long time it does not linger. Therefore, it is necessary to include in the diet vegetables and fruits for a whole year. In winter and in the spring it is possible to make up the body with pharmacy polyvitamins.

Appetite can be silenced by eating an apple or an orange.

This point of view has been living for a long time, even children are given an apple to “snack”. In fact, fruits, including apples and appetite, not only do not suppress, but on the contrary – they only kindle. After all, low-calorie, but sweet fruits increase the level of sugar in the blood, while in the body is released insulin, which quickly utilizes fruit sugar. But the level of insulin remains high for some time, which causes an increased appetite. In order to actually reduce the feeling of hunger, you should drink a cup of unsweetened green tea, you can also eat with corn flakes or unsweetened loaf. Such products contain complex carbohydrates, which the body can not immediately reprocess. After getting such products into the stomach, the level of insulin rises not so much.

To provide the body with vitamins, one must eat plenty of raw vegetables and fruits.

Many traditional healers even advise daily to eat up to three kilograms of raw fruit. But raw cellulose is poorly absorbed by many people! It’s no wonder that heartburn, a loose stool or a bloating may appear. A large amount of food quickly passes the upper intestine, and therefore is not handled properly. Accordingly, vitamins are not digested, so it is necessary to observe the measure in everything. There is an optimal proportion of the ratio of raw and cooked fruits and vegetables, which is 2 to 3. If a person has diseases of the intestine or stomach, then the proportion of raw fruits and vegetables must be reduced. And the missing vitamins can be obtained with the help of multivitamin complexes. It must also be remembered that the enzymes of the human digestive system are directed to the processing of fruits and vegetables in its geographical area, so a large number of exotic fruits consumed in food will inevitably lead to allergies or intestinal disorders.

Fruit and sweet generally should be eaten for dessert.

In fact, it is the fruit dessert that can get stuck in a full stomach for a long time. In this case, such sweetness loses its useful properties, complicating the digestive process. If the full stomach is fruit, then it can provoke abdominal pain, excessive gas formation. Therefore, if you want the fruit to really benefit, you should eat it between meals. And sweet does not have to be at the very end of the meal, if you eat a piece of chocolate before dinner, then it can become some kind of anti-operative, calming the slightly overtaken appetite. Much depends on how hungry a man is and how long he last ate. If the planned meal was missed, you should start eating with a couple of sweets or a small number of jam, ice cream. This approach will lead to the fact that the blood will quickly be saturated with glucose, the feeling of hunger will decrease, which will avoid overeating.
