Healthy nutrition habits

It is generally accepted that good nutrition is highly important to maintain our health and prevent degenerative diseases. In many cases, we use the expression "we are what we eat". On the other hand different surveys every day submerse, often controversial, and data about nutrition daily change. This is because the nutrition is a relatively new science and nutritional information and products require complex and lengthy investigations to clarify the suitability to humans. Here are some of the most recommended dietary habits.

It is essential to follow a diet that provides adequate nutrients and include foods from all levels of the food pyramid. These are cereals, legumes, nuts and bread, which are placed at the base of the food pyramid. Vegetables and fruits are on the second level. Meat, fish and dairy products are in third level and final last on consumption fat and sweets. We must choose a diet that is low in fat, saturated fat (such as red meat, ham, bacon, sausages) and cholesterol (eggs). The above are the cause for obesity and many other degenerative diseases.

Prefer a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and complex carbohydrates (potatoes). According to recent surveys vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage prevent cancer. Avoid sugar and its products, salt, particularly sodium often contained in it. Also read the labels and avoid foods with questionable additives.

Prefer vegetable protein sources (beans, chickpeas), although animal proteins are irreplaceable for the completeness of our nutrition. Make sure you take on enough calcium and iron. Limit the consumption of alcohol. Low to moderate consumption is considered one drink per 23 kg bodyweight.

Finally, it is important the level of your physical activity not to exceed the amount of food intake. Aerobic exercise combined with a diet rich in nutrients and low in calories, are the basis of well-designed program of weight control.
