The change in temperature on the street dictates its rules, and this aggressively sunny period, bringing with it a number of inconveniences, discomfort, must also be governed by rules, following which, life will be better. Well-known nutritionist talks about the main principles of eating in the heat:
Rule № 1
In summer we sweat, and this is a physiological process for thermoregulation. With sweat, we lose water and important electrolytes – Na, K, Mg, Ca, which require replenishment.
Dyed liquid with sugar or sugar substitutes and bubbles is difficult to do, so do not “quench your thirst” with such drinks, but listen to your body and replenish the water balance – especially with clean water!
Safety, caution and vigilance. Remember that the heat makes adjustments to the quality of products, in case of non-compliance with the rules of storage of which the danger increases exponentially.
Be especially vigilant with foods such as sausages, raw meat and fish, dairy products, and cream, and eliminate from your diet those foods that spoil quickly at this temperature. Avoid deliveries at this time, combine the pleasant with the useful. Fold a healthy plate yourself, or treat yourself to a dish in the restaurant from under the knife.
Summer is a real gift to our body in terms of enrichment of macro- and micronutrients. Add greens, vegetables and lettuce to every meal. They are rich in potassium, calcium, B vitamins (especially folate), C, antioxidants. Berries, fruits – a must, but let’s try without overeating (melon and watermelon say hello).
Dilute the diet with cold soups.
You will find high-quality protein in eggs, fish, meat (without frying), legumes. They are perfect for breakfast and lunch.
Dinners are sometimes made from a combination of vegetables and healthy fats. For example, stewed zucchini, zucchini, tomato, onion, with the addition of olive oil, sesame seeds, olives and avocado.
