Healthy Eating as the basis for a long life of full value
Healthy eating is introduced to improve the state of health and preserve it for a long-term period.
Lack of mobility, stress on the nervous system, and unhealthy eating all contribute to the premature aging of the body and development of diseases related to the malfunction of the heart. In addition, the elasticity of the muscles declines and the posture gets worse.
To prevent these phenomena, you need to regularly be active and engaged in physical activity such as sports.
Healthy eating is very important.
Following these guidelines, a person will live long and fully. If healthy eating isn’t introduced into one’s life when he or she is a child, a person needs to review their personal attitude towards food.
Everyone knows that a car wears out quickly if you fill its tank with low quality fuel. The same is applicable to the human body: with unhealthy eating, diseases gradually develop. They are difficult to treat and bring suffering and discomfort.
There are plenty of diets to support one’s health. They are composed of absolutely diverse food products.
The main component of healthy eating is the consumption of products which provide the body with all the necessary substances for its vital activity. Excessive consumption of even healthy products doesn’t mean you are eating healthy.
People who always count the calorie content of their breakfast or lunch are wrong. This is only necessary to do when it’s a diet for medicinal eating. A healthy person, consuming food, should know about the general norms of healthy eating and coordinate his or her ration without a constant obsession over calculating calories. It’s better to run for 10-minutes instead, which is much more beneficial.
Everybody knows that eating healthy consists of the optimal number of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
There are approximate daily norms of the consumption of protein products for middle-aged people, who are not burdened with physical work, for men 88 g and for women 75 g. This doesn’t mean you must only eat meat. Protein is present almost in all existing products. You need to be guided by these norms as deficit of proteins in food provokes the decomposition of the body’s proteins and other pathologies of the central nervous system, reduction of hormonal function, liver degeneration, and worsening of heart function.
An excess of protein is also harmful for the body as it causes malfunction of the central nervous system, overwork of the intestines, liver, and kidneys. Its excess also provokes rapid development of putrefactive processes in the body.
For this reason, there was a form of capital punishment in ancient China: when a person, who was condemned to death, was given only boiled meat to eat. Within a month, this person would eventually die from a terrible intoxication of the body.
Eating healthy suggests the consumption of fats for women 84 g, and for men 99 g. Fats play an important role in the human body, which is why their rejection in some diets, aimed at weight loss, is groundless. In addition to their thermal properties, they dissolve fat-dissolvable vitamins. Some fats are also their sources.
Fats help the body digest proteins, produce the hormone for satiation, etc. When considering healthy eating, you need to pay attention to fats of a vegetable origin, which have indispensable fatty acids in their composition. These acids participate in the body’s metabolism, boost the elasticity of vessels, and lower their penetrability. Together with cholesterol, they compose easily-dissolvable combinations, and their excess is easilywithdrawn from the body. They also improve the work of the heart muscle and intensify the action of insulin. Unsaturated fatty acids amplify the combustion of fatty accumulations with physical workloads.
Animal fats reveal low activity in biological processes, except for poultry, fish and bone fats, which contain poly-unsaturated fatty acids.
Lack of fats lowers the resistance of the body to infections and colds. Avitaminosis can be developed, especially in sportsmen.
Carbohydrates are an inherent element of healthy eating. It’s important to know the number of carbohydrates you need and not to consume more than your body requires.
Carbohydrates are not only glucose and fructose, they are also starch, glycogen, fiber, pectins, and others. Carbohydrates are a source of energy for the body’s cells.
A lack of carbohydrates leads towards a hard disease of the liver and brain poisoning. An excess causes obesity and hidden diabetes. Fat accumulation may occur from a one-time consumption of a large quantity of carbohydrates.
The average daily need of the body in carbohydrates for women is 310 g and 365 g for men. The body needs 30 g of fiber; not less than 265 g enter the body with starches, pectins, slowly-assimilated carbohydrates from the vegetables, fruit, and porridges. There are 15 g left for sweets pastries, chocolates, etc. If you want to have a slim figure and good health, don’t eat more than 1-2 chocolates a day.
Healthy eating, as well as physical activity, requires effort. The only person that benefits from these efforts is the individual.
