Diet for summer or for years

Diet for summer or for years makes sense to dietitians and other specialists in the field of medicine. The subject of epidemics, or indeed now the pandemic of overweight and obesity, appears more and more often. The only solution is to change the eating habits of people around the world. Excessive consumption and production of food negatively affect both health and the Earth’s climate.

The easier access and low price of processed products and the increasing number of fast food places, but also the increasing argument that there is no time to prepare a home-cooked meal, mean that we have no control over what we eat and how much we eat.

Summer is the time of the year when we reveal more and more body, so we want to fit into our favorite dress and shorts after the winter we want to get rid of excessive luggage accumulated during the winter 😉 But as a nutritionist I remind you that maintaining the correct body weight is worth taking care of all year, not only for the sake of an aesthetic figure for the summer.

“Breeding a tire” for the winter is not very reasonable, considering not only the appearance of the silhouette, but most importantly your health. Even the slightest excess weight is a risk of developing diet-dependent diseases, including: diabetes, insulin resistance, hormonal disorders, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, …

I’ll say again, everything is for people, that it’s not food itself that is poison, but the quantity of it. Therefore, everything consumed in moderation will help maintain a normal body weight. It is also worth taking care of movement (movement is health). WHO recommends a minimum of 1 hour of moderate intensity exercise per day, e.g. brisk walking, cycling, Nordic walking, horse riding, swimming pool, … If someone wants to calculate daily physical activity, then the real parameter is the measurement of the steps taken (minimum 8 000 steps per day). Thus, it is also worth reducing the time spent in front of the TV or computer, if this is not part of the work. When doing sitting work, it would be a good solution to spend at least 15 minutes, every hour, on moving the leg muscles 😉
