Experts in proper nutrition and exercise have singled out some of the most common and worst myths about nutrition and revealed to us what we should do if we want to preserve our health and shape.
Subtracting and adding calories Losing weight and maintaining weight is a slightly more complex task than subtracting and adding calories, and using this method can lead to an impoverished diet that can cause long-term damage to mental and physical health. In addition, some foods, although very low in calories, can be harmful to health. Instead of counting calories, you better focus on choosing foods that suit your body type, that will balance hormones, help burn fat and improve metabolism. There is no general formula for choosing these foods and it varies from individual to individual, but it is important to balance the intake of protein, healthy fats and carbohydrates in the diet. Also, you should include more fresh foods such as vegetables and fruits in your diet.
Eliminating carbohydrates from the diet One of the worst and most widespread food myths lately is the one about the harmfulness of carbohydrates, which should be completely eliminated from the diet. First of all, not all carbohydrates are the same, and as an important source of energy, they give our body endurance, concentration and enable faster recovery. Although the rejection of carbohydrates can give results, it is not sustainable in the long run because it deprives the body of vital nutrients. Instead of eliminating all carbohydrates from your diet, try to replace refined cereals, such as those found in white bread, with less processed ones such as those in rye bread, and adjust portions to a balanced diet with other nutrients.
Vežbanje će ispraviti greške nezdrave ishrane
Kao način postizanja optimalnog zdravstvenog stanja, stručnjaci preporučuju zdravu, uravnoteženu ishranu i redovno vežabanje. Ideja da ćete imati telo iz snova samo zahvaljujući vežbanju, jedan je od najvećih mitova.
Preterano vežbanje, suprotno vrlo raširenom mišljenju, podstiče u telu reakciju na stres, a kad smo preplavljeni kortizolom i adrenalinom znatno je teže gubiti težinu. Umesto napornih vežbi po preporuci nekog "Instagram fitnes gurua", pametnije je vežbati onako kako se osećate prijatno i što vam čini zadovoljstvo. Trudite se da vežbate 30 do 45 minuta, pet puta nedeljno, uz dan ili dva odmora svake nedelje.
All sugars are the same and their intake should be limited The sugar in fruits differs significantly from the sugar in sweets and various sweets, and fruits, unlike sweets, give the body fiber, vitamins, minerals and a longer feeling of satiety. However, for a balanced diet, you should not overdo it with fruit intake.
