The health of our internal organs, our physical appearance, our well-being, and our immunity depend directly on what we eat. A healthy lifestyle involves eliminating flavorings, flavor enhancers, fatty foods, colorings and preservatives, or at least reducing them.
Here are the basic rules:
You should neither starve nor overeat - both negatively affect your well-being. You should not feel hungry and, conversely, overeat. Try to ensure that the daily norm of calories was 1700-1900 kcal (normal for women leading a sedentary lifestyle, for men the daily calorie is higher by about 300-400 kcal).
Drink clean water. It is desirable to consume 1.5 to 2 liters of water per day (not tea, coffee, juice, etc.)
Reduce the amount of sweets in your diet. If you want sweets, give preference to fresh vegetables and dried fruits. You can also use bitter chocolate in moderation.
Eat at least 4-5 times a day in small portions. At the end of a meal, you should have a slight feeling of hunger.
Daily menu should contain meat or fish, vegetables and fruits, cereals, dairy products. Eat a varied diet.
Dinner should be at least 2 hours before bedtime. It is not advisable to eat immediately before going to bed.
Eliminate fast food, fatty and smoked products from your diet.
Give preference to boiled, braised or baked products.
If you have not been following your diet before, it may be difficult to change your diet abruptly. Try to start small, by eliminating fatty sauces and foods that contain them, avoiding flavor enhancers and chemical additives, avoid convenience foods, convenience foods, pastries, and fruits and vegetables. Doing each of these things will be a step toward a healthy diet.
