Proper and balanced diet

I eat what I eat!

Once famous ancient Greek philosopher Socrates was asked: “What is the reason for your good health in so mature years, while many people much younger than you have many diseases?” What Socrates said: “The fact that I eat to live and you mentioned people live to eat. “

Why do we eat?

ProperDo not be surprised! The answer to this seemingly “children” issue directly depends on the state of our health and well-being. In these circumstances, many modern “foods”, even with the “big stretch,” can hardly be called food because no food and biological value to the human body such “food” is not, but also creates a lot of problems for its valuable work.

The fact that modern man for some time became not adequately relate to those products that daily intake of fish, and to the process of food in general. This applies not only manufacturers, but also us – the consumers of these “high-tech products,” to the fullest!

We often – for many reasons – lose sight of the important fact that the purpose of food , in fact, one. And it is in supplying the body with all the necessary for its normal functioning substances . Everything else – the only “dovesochki.”

The human body – a complex biological system that never for a moment ceases to operate. In order to maintain the system in “working condition” the human body has to perform an extensive “work package”, which requires a large number of “consumables” – biologically active ingredients -vitamins , minerals , amino acids , fats , simple and complex carbohydrates, hormones and hormone-like compounds, etc. Most of these required him to full life substances, our body can not synthesize, he used to get them from food.

Old cells die. They need to be “disposed of”. Instead, they created a new young cells. To do this, our body has to break down some substances, and of the resulting components to create others.Each of our body – a “high-tech manufacturing,” for efficient operation that requires quality “consumables”. Qualitative (udobousvoyaemye and understandable for digestion) they are only in natural products created by human nature.

Over millions of years of evolution, humans learned to get everything you need for full life of the food, which consisted of a variety of natural foods. With the development of the food industry and the advent of modern technology man has learned to change not only the structure but also the composition, and even the natural properties of the natural product, created by nature.

The main reason for such a rapid growth in the number of severe chronic diseases in most developed countries nutritionists see radically changed over the last few decades (especially in the past 30-50 years) Chemical and biological composition and structure of the products used in food in countries with developed food industry!

What we eat?

Natural product , in its natural form natural, proved insufficient “good” for industrial technologies and “sales techniques” . Small shelf life, lack of “tenderness” is not the same as we would like technologist, bright color and taste, etc., etc.

Of course, from the above statements of the great philosopher, we can conclude that in ancient Greece, too, not all and not always rational and properly fed. But the body of even the most “reckless” our distant ancestor was still much “easier”, at least in the sense that even if there was not a “food chemistry” or “high-tech products” . And “a negligent owner” still had to choose natural products created by nature, to which his body was adapted.

The flourishing of the food industry has spawned competition. To win in this increasingly fierce competitive manufacturer to constantly “improve” the quality of produced selling them food. On the “first” came the low cost of the product , long shelf life , vibrant color and taste , pushing into the background the usefulness of the product and its biological (nutritional) value.

As a result of the original natural product removed virtually all of its bioactive components (“waste matter”) that prevent its long-term storage or giving it is not the best “selling quality” : the smell, color, taste, texture, etc. The thus obtained ” Food dummy “ – a great base to give the desired end product qualities. Necessary taste, color, smell, texture and consistency of such “modern food” manufacturers attach using “food chemistry” .

As a result, most of the “food” of industrial production are “fat-and (or) carbohydrate Dummy” with lots of food chemistry, easily digestible (simple) carbohydrates and modified fats .

This “food”, with a pleasant sweet taste, usually completely devoid of biologically active substances required by the human body for a full life. Due to this “ready supply” serious diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease and blood vessels, and many others have been transformed into “the epidemic of the 21st century” .

So the very first tip that give their patients today dietitians is: if possible, cook their own food for yourself! Of natural unrefined and not subjected to a high-tech food processing!

Try to use as little as possible in the diet substitutes industrial production. Thus, not only do you provide yourself and your loved ones nutrition with enough vital health bioactive food components, but also protect your intestinal flora (beneficial intestinal bacteria) from the depressing impact on her food chemistry. Health same intestinal bacteria – is the health of the whole organism?
