Healthy food. Daily menu

One of the main needs of the body is nutrition. Currently, there are many prejudices regarding food. One attribute the harmful effects on the body, the other – healing properties.

Human needs consist in a variety of nutrition; one cannot categorically exclude any type of food from the diet. The main thing is to rationally combine a meal during the day, that is, to maintain a balanced diet.

The principles of healthy eating

What to be guided by when preparing your body to observe a healthy menu? The main principles that should underlie the power system:
• start eating food only if there is a feeling of hunger
• it is better to increase the frequency of food intake, but reduce the size of servings
• you need to pay attention to the quality of products, eat only fresh food
• products with artificial additives should be avoided: dyes, flavors, flavor enhancers, eat no more than once every three days
• foods enriched in fiber should dominate the diet: dried fruits, nuts, vegetables, unrefined cereals, fruits
• do not drink fluids immediately after eating; at least half an hour should pass

goal

Observing the above rules of healthy eating, a person pursues one main goal – strengthening, cleansing his body.

You should not consider these recommendations as a diet for weight loss or a recipe for recovery from any disease. These tips are for those who want to experience a feeling of lightness when leaving the table. For those who care about the work of their intestines and the entire digestive system in principle. A healthy diet strengthens the immune system, supports the work of all organs, thereby prolonging a person’s life.

Menu for the week

When the firm decision is finally made to switch to a healthy diet, you can proceed to draw up an individual nutrition menu for a week. Why only for a week? It is difficult to predict in advance what life circumstances will be that will affect taste preferences and appetite.

Therefore, without looking far into the future, it seems most rational to draw up a nutrition plan for seven days. An individual nutrition menu refers to the diet of a particular person, that is, it is not necessary for everyone to adhere to the recommended list of products.

Everyone decides for himself what foods to eat for lunch or dinner. The main thing is not to forget that eating should be balanced according to the principles of healthy nutrition.
