The popularity and practicality of fast foods and frozen foods, added to the growing competitiveness in the labor market, have transformed the way people eat. If everyone had time to eat before healthy food, today we only eat when there is so much time left in the midst of so many commitments.
Eating habits adapt to the needs of each person in their work environment. So we eat we stop eating healthy food, eating poorly and faster, we drink more coffee and soda indiscriminately, and the body gradually loses its health until a more serious illness arises.
This daily flow often prevents people from realizing how they eat. According to experts, this means that people do not see what foods they eat and eat very quickly, which causes problems in the body.
Chewing is the initial stage of the digestive process and aims to reduce food to an appropriate size for swallowing, improving digestion and absorption. Quick chewing brings several problems when absorbing nutrients, including acidity, poor digestion and drowsiness after eating.
Another common mistake is the high consumption of products lights and diets, that people weigh being healthier. They buy these foods with the illusion that they will bring health benefits. However, these products generally contain artificial ingredients, such as acidulants, dyes and preservatives in larger quantities than conventional ones, which makes them extremely toxic to the body.
The ideal is always to see the amount of fiber, sodium, fats, carbohydrates, but mainly the artificial ingredients, comparing them with common foods.
What is the Best Way to Eat?
According to experts, the best way to eat is to find a quiet place to eat healthy food, and eat every 3 hours and, mainly, try to vary the amount of food consumed daily to have a greater supply of nutrients. Many people, for convenience, consume canned food, fast food, snacks and cookies every day. This intake generates in the body the accumulation of sugar, fat and toxins, which leads to an organic imbalance. And these products are consumed in large quantities, when they want to eat the cookies, they do not stop until they reach the end of the package, that is, they cannot quantify the desired food.
But how do we know if we are stopping eating healthy food? Nutritionists explain that when a person has eating habits, based on a minimum or even no consumption of regulating foods (such as fruits and vegetables), low water consumption, high consumption of carbohydrates and saturated fats, symptoms such as frequent fatigue, weight gain, gastritis, diabetes and gastrointestinal disorders.
When these symptoms occur, it is a sign that an individual has an organic imbalance and needs to change eating habits to have a better quality of life.
The only way to avoid these problems is to choose healthy food, and the best way is to do a dietary reeducation. The first step is to understand that the food should not be limited or bad.
Nutrition is more than a physiological need, it is also a source of pleasure, remind nutritionists. Through dietary reeducation, the person has specific nutritional recommendations that help to include healthy eating habits.
It is necessary to understand the factors that imply the difficulty of setting up new eating habits, such as the emotional connection with food, social life, the family environment and its cultural roots. That is why it is important that dietary reeducation is carried out gradually and carefully, so that all beliefs about food are eliminated, and therefore define good eating behavior.
