You will fight with pounds, do you want to lose weight? Then you need to know that sugar is not toxic, and low carbohydrates are not healthier.
Do you really need to be tortured by various diets and drop some foods? New book: "Eat It Anyway" by Eva Simons and Lauri Dennisson denies everything you once thought is necessary for beauty and health.
Little known ladies often emphasize the most diverse forms of diets, bookstores and social media are full of extreme love of body weight. The research, however, shows that 97 percent of diet-based dieters present in an attempt to lose weight fail.
After completing the diet, they will return to their weight or will receive even more, which is extremely depressing. These are, according to the authors of the book, the dark pages of the modern diet. In addition, studies at Harvard University have shown that adhering to strenuous diets and avoiding certain types of foods promotes the release of stress hormone cortisol.
Dieting often ends with income distortions
And this is another very important negative side. The authors of the book point out that such excessive promotion of diets wherever we see can lead to the risk of eating disorders.
Diets can easily be avoided with your anorexia, bulimia or other modern disorders.
These are very serious psychological and physical problems, which can end with not only long-term health damage, infertility, chronic problems, but also death. And even a seemingly positive "obsession" with healthy eating can end up very badly.
There is no healthy or unhealthy diet
Eva Simmons has overcome anorexia alone. The truth about the diet was discovered by the nutritionist, Lucy Daniels, who fled the dangerous disease and began to eat "normal".
This expert revealed the truth: There is no part of the diet that we could call healthy or unhealthy. Each component in a balanced diet plays its role. It was the foundation that brought Eva along with her friend Laura Dennisson to write the book "Eat Everything As It Is".
The book negates some often and often promoted ideas for healthy eating:
All sugars are poisonous and should be avoided
In fact, adults should not consume more than 30 g (seven teaspoons) of sugar a day, as more sugar will degrade teeth and cause weight gain.
This does not include sugar naturally found in fruits, vegetables and milk, because it is tied to fibers and other compounds that promote health in these foods.
"Many people eat too much sugar, so they need to limit it, however, it is not necessary to completely avoid sugar." This trend has caused great confusion, as people think they should also avoid sugar in fruits or in root vegetables, "notes Rays Daniels.
If we really avoid all sweet dishes, the result would be a lack of calcium and vitamins and vitamins and minerals that are important for the function of bones, muscles and cells.
Another myth is the assumption that natural sweeteners – honey, agate and maple syrup are very healthier. The idea that a type of sugar is healthier than another is unhealthy.
If you want to lose weight, you should avoid carbohydrates
Dietics with low carbohydrates are now very popular. There are studies that confirm that low calorie diets with low carbohydrates can help obese diabetics with obesity improve their condition. But why should people be healthy?
"There is no complete evidence that avoiding carbohydrates helps to rely on the long run … Low carbohydrate diets cause energy loss, but also have no nutritional value of the diet.
The brain itself needs 130 g of carbohydrates a day for work. In addition, the formation of ketones will cause your breath to smell like a nail polish, "notes Lucy Daniels.
If you really can live without carbohydrates, it's likely that you will die than people who eat them. Why? Because foods containing carbohydrates are often also a source of fiber that stabilizes blood sugar and prevents intestinal and obesity cancer.
Plant alternatives to milk have improved
Millions of people around the world today avoid milk, cream and cheese because they consider it a problem for their health and weight. And those who do not have lactose intolerance.
Shelves in food are filled with various milk alternatives, but do they deserve dairy products and products from it really such a bad reputation? It is assumed that saturated fats in dairy products increase the level of cholesterol in the blood. The reality, however, is that it refers only to the large amount of saturated fat that is consumed throughout life.
On the contrary, a recent study published in the Lancet magazine showed thatthe intake of three servings of dairy products daily reduces the risk of premature death, heart and blood vessels, and stroke.
In addition, the milk has many healthy properties, contains amino acids, vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, protein. Whole dairy products prove that they strengthen immune function – they act as probiotics.
Vegan diet is ideal for good health
The number of people who do not eat meat, milk and eggs in the last ten years has grown four times. Is vegan really healthier than normal diet?
"Vegas is more oriented towards its health, they are more trained and come from middle or higher class.
All these facts are related to better health. To be healthier does not have to be a diet, but a way of life, "the dietician explains." It adds that it's very difficult to have a balanced vegetarian diet with everything that the body needs for its health. "Many young people who have gone through vegans experienced serious eating disorders.
What is the healthiest diet for everyone?
"Eat with peace, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, drink more water. It's not sexy, but it's scientifically confirmed," says Luci Daniels.
