We will not talk again about overeating and excess of calories, as well as about harmful food habits. Let’s talk about the main drawbacks of the modern people nutrition. Why exactly modern? Because our nutrition is determined by the choice of products in grocery stores and restaurant menus, as well as the rhythm of life.
Let us discuss the solutions to these problems, so that it is clear what we can do to solve the issues.
Water is the main component of our cells, tissues and organs. Statistics say that 75% of people consume insufficient amount of water. Many of the doctors, if they could give you one single advice on overall improvement of well-being, will tell you to drink more water, because water:
It is recommended to consume the main amount of water before 14-15 o’clock. Try to drink no more than 400-500 ml after 18-19 o’clock. It is recommended to drink water 10-15 minutes before meals, and limit its amount during the meal. Better drink in small portions – 250 ml, between meals.
These have literally zero nutrients (minerals, vitamins, amino acids) that our body needs every day for a normal functioning. Refined products have high caloric content with low nutritional value. They are also poor in fiber, which is so important for maintaining the normal blood sugar level and health of the intestines.
Such food satisfies the daily need for calories, yet it does not provide the cells and, as a consequence, organs and systems, with what is we actually need. As a result, you:
- gain excess weight,
- feel tired and anxious,
- want to eat all the time.
All processes that occur in our body are carried out through chemical reactions that require specific substances that we can get with food.
Excessive sugar in the food provokes fermentation in the intestines, which also leads to irritation, inflammation and allergic manifestations. You can be sure that everything sweet causes damage to the body and pleases only your taste buds. It does not bring any benefit.
As for the content of chemical components in food, it can be:
- hormones and antibiotics (in animal food),
- pesticides and residues of fertilizers (in plant food).
The environment inside our body, including the circulatory system, must have a certain acidity, the changes of which lie within a limited range. What we eat affects its level directly. Acidification of the body adversely affects the function of systems, and even contributes to damage to the arteries and joints.
There are several organs and systems that act as a depository of minerals. When your body needs to neutralize acidity, it can take substances for alkalinization from our bones. Control of acidity is a priority for our body, much more important than the formation of bone tissue, the growth of nails and so on. Therefore, the effect of acidification can be osteoporosis.
As a result, our body is continuously engaged in restoring the balance and neutralizing the acids.
