I must say that rational nutrition has completely changed my attitude to nutrition. This system taught me not only to maintain a balance in the supply and expenditure of energy, but also showed how these or other foods are useful and important for the body.
My acquaintance with nutrition at the institute began when I was studying for a food commodity specialist. Teachers told us about the importance of consuming all the nutrients and their proportions.
Not immediately, but much later, having become disillusioned with many food systems, I decided to use the principles of good nutrition to lose weight.
The basic principles of nutrition can be summarized in three points:
1. Energy balance nutrition.
You probably know and see how great in our time is the variety of food products in shop windows. And how many marketers are working to create an attractive ad or a seductive label.
All this contributes to overeating, but at the same time, the organism does not receive all the nutrients it needs. Inclusion of consciousness in the process of purchasing food and cooking significantly improves the quality of food and, accordingly, human health.
2. Variety and balance in nutrition.
Every day, our body needs to get more than 70 different elements from food. For this you need food to diversify and balance.
Eating food fractional, every 3-4 hours and about the same time. Thus, the body will not receive signals of strong hunger from the hungry cells of the body and overeat.
How was it with me
At first, I began to look at the daily amount of calories as cash. I am given 1400 calories in the morning and for the whole day, and I myself decide what to spend on them.
This great teaches rationally not only to treat food, but also to commodity-money relations.
There was a time when I so much wanted to eat ice cream, that I allowed myself 5 cups of creamy or popsicles a day and nothing more. After a couple of days, I ate enough ice cream and switched to more wholesome food. But at least I had no restrictions on any products.
I can not forbid anything at all. For a fraction of a second, the forbidden fruit acquires the status of a hyper-in my head and starts visiting me even in a dream.
Later, I began to realize that the quality of the product and its chemical composition also play a big role. The meaning of being thin and ringing, but without hair or nails, which are cut off at the root and constantly exfoliate?
Here I have already started to make my diet more diverse, include various salads, cereals and lean meat with fish in my food.
Skills and delights
A culinary experimenter woke up in me, I made jam without sugar, made hot chocolate with bran, baked sweets without flour and sugar. The only thing I sinned with was a sweetener.
The one that I used did not contain calories at all, but was sweet enough to taste. It could be added anywhere, while getting the usual sweet taste without consequences for the waist.
Rational nutrition suited me in all respects. Thus, I eat for 8 years. I really like that it smoothly falls on my world perception, explains everything logically and in terms of physiology. Teaches you to care for your body, like a temple of the soul. Nor does it prohibit any food product.
1. No bans. For me, it was very relevant after previous experiences.
2. Teaches to respect your body and treat yourself and your diet more rationally.
1. During weight loss, you must constantly monitor and record everything that goes into your mouth.
2. The inability to eat outside the home, if at hand there are no weights and simple, low-component food.
And which power system seems to you the most optimal?
