Every summer the same question arises: what diet to follow to lose weight?
The answer: none. With the purpose of nourishing yourself in a balanced way, you will find the Harvard plate, which will undoubtedly be a guide for your whole life.
How, do not do anything? You will ask yourself. Exactly, miracle diets don’t exist, so your body will thank you for not experimenting with it. In fact, cleansing diets do not either, and it is our liver and kidney that perform this function and do it phenomenally.
Diet Plan To Be Healthier And Fit
With detox, you can feel better, since they limit the foods that are not good, such as ultra-processed foods or alcohol, but some risks are the deficiency of nutrients, such as proteins or vitamins, which can lead to electrolyte imbalances.
Here you will understand why healthy nutrition is outside of the fad plans, so from today you will know why it is better to start using the term food, instead of diet, and the compelling reasons to appropriate the dish recommended by the Harvard University.
Change The Way You Eat Forever!
It is essential to have varied and balanced nutrition, which is why you bet on real food, that is, vegetables, fruits, legumes, quality proteins, complex carbohydrates (slow absorption and avoiding glucose peaks), and good fats each day of the year, not only at the time when you will wear fewer clothes on the beach or in the pool.
Forget about the processed! Like alcohol, junk food and empty calories don’t nourish us and our bodies don’t need them. And you will ask yourself: what are they? They are those that do not resemble their original form at all.
They are generally loaded with added sugars, such as salt, fats, and additives. On their label, they have just over five ingredients, for example, cookies, breakfast cereals, cold cuts, packaged juices, supermarket bread, soft drinks, sweets, French fries, fried food … and a long list.
To eliminate your doubts and know how to eat, you should keep in mind the famous Harvard dish when preparing your food, and with it, I assure you that you will never need diets again.
Put It Into Practice
HALF OF YOUR PLATE it should include colored vegetables and fruits; frozen ones are a good option and are among the good processed ones. Potatoes do not count as a vegetable; its negative effect on the blood increases the glucose peak.
QUARTER uses it for whole grains or cereals (wheat, barley, quinoa, oats, and brown rice) and for refined ones (white bread and rice). The type of carbohydrates is more important than the amount, because sources, such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes, are healthier than others.
ANOTHER ROOM OF THE PLATE It must integrate quality protein, such as fish, chicken, legumes, and nuts, these can be mixed in salads and combine well with vegetables. Limit red meats and avoid processed ones, like cold cuts.
QUALITY OILS For seasoning they are necessary for our body and rich in Omega 3 and 6, always in moderation: choose healthy vegetable oils, such as olive, avocado, and avoid partially hydrogenated ones, which contain trans fats. And remember that ‘light or low fat’ does not mean ‘healthy’.
