New trends in nutrition
Sometimes it seems that the fashion for diets as changeable as weight fluctuations concerned losing weight women.Only once a dietary favorite ascend to the throne, as he immediately replaced by another in a hurry.King umer- long live the king!
Not that did not exist before the coarse oatmeal or brown rice.Just now we are more consciously incorporate whole grains into your diet.And the choice has expanded: there were grain mixture of flour, meal pasta, baguettes and loaves of wholemeal, bran, beans, sunflower seeds.Many restaurants are included in the menu previously considered "non-noble" side dishes such as buckwheat and brown rice.Addiction to porridges and meals from raw grain is approval from nutritionists.The US Department of Agriculture and Food has published an updated food pyramid, according to which at least half of all the food eaten must be in its whole.They contain a variety of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals that help the prevention of life-threatening diseases, including cancer and cardiovascular.Studies also suggest that due to the high content of insoluble fiber (from it, in fact, is the shell grain) such products help get rid of excess weight.
This trend nutritionists predict a long life.The range of wholegrain foods is growing, and even catering responded to the urgent needs of society.To perform a "plan", is enough to eat a bowl of porridge or three slices of wholemeal bread a day.
control over portions
While in Dumb restaurants serving is still immense, in general there is a tendency to reduce them.Even more significant that large supermarkets offer an increasing range of small packaged food for snacking.Nutritionists emphasize that a healthy person can afford all sorts of goodies, the only question is to know when to stop.
Melkoportsionnye packaging of finished products and semi-finished products are gaining popularity among producers and consumers.With such a help and calorie count is not necessary - everything is written on the box.It turns out a sort of "Diet for the lazy": the amount of dinner pre-thought out, weighed, balanced content.
This trend is particularly true of industrial technologies involving vegetable oil, resulting in formation of trans fatty acids.Recall: heating oil enriched with hydrogen (hydrogenated) and turns into a solid by suti- in margarine.Trans fats are present in so many ready-made products and cause significant harm to health.Their role in the occlusion of vessels is almost as great as the role of saturated fats.However, until the new labeling rules requiring all manufacturers to indicate on the label trans fat content is only valid in the US market.A review of the production process, only a few seem concerned about the brand, has positioned itself as a healthy food, but do not shun dubious technologies.
Changing technology - a lengthy process.He has just started and has not yet had time to gain traction.But it will not stop.Trans fats are expected to attend the substances the use of which mankind has abandoned once and for all.How, for example, have sunk into oblivion sweetener cyclamate or dye erythrosine (remember lollipops "Cock on a stick"?).
protein diet Atkins
long been debunked, but the protein, or low-carbohydrate diets continue to beat all records of popularity.For example, "Kremlevka" (interest in it strongly heated "yellow" media).Many of these power schemes really help to lose weight.But nutritionists continue to sound the alarm about the possible consequences for the organism.When carbohydrates are practically excluded from the menu, we have to "switch" for meat.And Oncology studies have shown that women who eat a day more than 100 grams of red meat or meat products (sausages, salami, ham), are subject to a 20% greater risk of developing colon cancer than those who consumed the same amount of meat per week.Yes, and the body is unable to process a lot of protein.
Low-carbohydrate diets are gradually leave the stage, but it is possible that in front of us waiting for a new surge of "protein mania".
This system is as old as the world, but still influential.Raw food diet involves eating only raw foods of plant origin only.In fact, this extreme form of vegetarianism.Should we follow this principle?Experts believe that it will not harm the health of (unless you suffer from digestive diseases), but this approach impoverish your menu.In addition, you will receive less of some important trace elements that are absorbed only after the heat treatment.
raw food diet is not going anywhere, but in the first line rating is unlikely to fall.Like many marginal flow, it will stay away from the other "diet" trends.Sometimes you can walk along the roadside and "nibble grass."But most people are not willing to sacrifice forever for hot food taste ghostly benefits to be gained from a primitive approach to the feast.
Inscription "Sugar-free" or "With a reduced sugar content" are increasingly found on the labels.Read the information carefully, you will find in the list of ingredients other "sweeteners" such as aspartame or sucralose.Without them, the product would be tasteless, but they mention some reason, "delicate" is pushed to the farthest corner, either at the end of the list of ingredients or in the back of the packaging.And although the state institutions "blessed" the use of these substances, independent experts have doubts.Investigations are continuing, but we have to clarify all the circumstances should be able to decide whether to include these substances in your diet.In addition, if the product is not sugar, it does not mean that it is low in calories.Pay attention to energy tsennost- calorie "light" product sometimes no less than in the traditional.
Eating foods containing sugar substitutes, inevitably come to naught.Realizing that the word "reduced-sugar" does not guarantee a low calorie product, the consumer is more on this bait does not bite.
