20 самых полезных продуктов всех времен и народов

Healthy nutrition is nutrition that ensures the growth, normal development and livelihoods of a person, contributing to his health and disease prevention. Adherence to healthy eating in combination with regular exercise reduces the risk of chronic diseases and disorders such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer.

Modern science conducts numerous studies to optimize the diet for the prevention of major chronic diseases. The first full-scale study that confirmed that a healthy diet can significantly reduce problems with cardiovascular diseases, obesity and diabetes was the North Karelia project, which was launched in Finland in 1973. For 35 years, the death rate from cardiovascular diseases in the population of the North Karelia region has decreased by 7 times. This result formed the basis of the pan-European Health Strategy 2020.

Of course, the composition of the ideal human diet depends on the type of activity, lifestyle and place of residence, but there are more or less universal tips developed by health organizations:

  • Watch carefully for calorie foods and body weight. For example, the State Research Center for Preventive Medicine (GNICPM) recommends weight loss with a Body Mass Index index greater than 27 kg / m2.
  • Limit energy production from fats. Saturated fats (animal, solid vegetable fats) - should be up to 1/3 of the fats consumed, the remaining 2/3 of fats should be unsaturated, liquid fats. When using milk and dairy products, you should give preference to products with low fat content. Try not to eat foods that contain trans fatty acids.
  • Strive to increase the proportion of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts in the daily diet. It is from this food that 50-60% of all energy should be obtained.
  • Approximately one third of bread, cereals, flour in the diet should be foods enriched with micronutrients.
  • Limit the consumption of simple carbohydrates (sugar, honey, sugary carbonated drinks) - no more than 30-40 grams per day.
  • Limit the use of salt and use only iodized salt.
  • Try to provide the body with vitamins in physiological quantities, including antioxidants (vitamins A, C, E), folic acid. If your diet does not include enough vitamins from food, you can periodically take multivitamins and additional vitamin D.
  • Consult with your doctor on the topic of diets, trust only nutrition, developed by reputable health institutions.
