Nutrition Basics

What does a person need for a happy, carefree, vibrant and long life? Of course, health. In Europe, retired people are only growing, now they have free time to travel, and they are enjoying life in peace. But how can she enjoy it if her health is not at all right? If the general condition is already so bad that you do not want anything in life.

And so that a person does not lose his health, he must fulfill the requirements of a proper lifestyle: he should have healthy food in his diet, and he must allocate time for physical activity every day.

Great Lent: Five Major Misconceptions

Orthodox Monday begins Lent. Every year it is accompanied by numerous disputes about what can and cannot be eaten, how to dress, and so on.

The body does not need carbohydrates from added sugar. Glucose is produced from any carbohydrates that enter our mouths, not just sweets. And the added sugar does not represent any nutritional value or benefit to humans. Continue reading
