Nutrition is the fuel we consume to ensure our health and energy level during a day. Thus, when we have an unbalanced nutrition from the point of view of macronutrients and low in vitamins we will face health problems, low energy level, poor mood, poor quality sleep and so on.
Most consider fats the main culprit responsible for various diseases of the cardiovascular system but the truth is somewhere in the middle. If you eat foods that contain healthy fats (nuts, almonds, avocados, olives, fish, yogurt) and less foods that contain unhealthy fats (margarine, sweets, cakes, fried food, pastries) you won’t have these kind of problems.
It is also advisable to consume low fat meat because there are most of the hormones and chemicals used for the rapid growth of the respective animals. You can opt for beef, chicken, turkey, lean pork cooked in a healthy way in the oven or on the grill, not fried.
Thus, it is not necessary to eliminate fats because they contain essential fatty acids that are extremely important for the health of the heart and the cardiovascular system, but it is important to choose the right fats. If you do not manage to consume foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids frequently, you can also use nutritional supplements (dietary supplements) that easily provide the required daily dose. We recommend, however, to use only in case of need the supplements (that is why they are called supplements, because they supplement a normal diet, do not replace!) And not the formation of a habit.
We will also have to look after sugar (especially refined), white flour and processed foods and consume foods in their natural state. A healthier option is to replace sugar with honey or stevia, white flour with whole wheat flour and processed foods with foods that we prepare ourselves, all with MEASURE.
Water is very important for the balance of the endocrine system, cardiovascular, muscular, nervous and so on. Since the body is about 70% water, adequate daily consumption should be a priority for each of us.
Proper and balanced nutrition along with a physical exercise plan strengthens the immune system and helps maintain a healthy lifestyle.
