UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) – With diets always like this: that they work for, and not against you, it is important to closely monitor the overall balance of the diet . Otherwise, you will lose in micro- and macronutrients, which, of course, will not go to the body for good.

Nutritionists do not tire of repeating (and we are following them) that the best diet is proper nutrition. But if you are determined to follow a certain dietary plan, so be it, follow. Just make sure that you are inexperienced did not exclude from the menu important components of a healthy diet.

In this material – six products at once, which it is time to lose weight to demonize.


Of course, the cheese is rich in saturated fat and sodium, so with its amount you need to be more careful. On the other hand, all this does not mean that you should deny yourself one of the main gastronomic pleasures.

Because, for example, that cheese is an excellent source of protein , calcium, vitamin B12 and healthy fatty acids, potentially capable of reducing the risk of diabetes. In addition, this fermented product can increase the level of good intestinal bacteria.


You often hear people say that they are trying to limit the consumption of coffee with one cup a day? This can sound reasonable only if someone is not interested in research on the subject at all.

Simply because scientists do not stop talking about the possible benefits of caffeine associated with life expectancy, reducing the risk of heart and liver disease, certain cancers and degenerative brain diseases.


Not so long ago, scientists found that pasta (well, or pasta, if you prefer) can be part of a healthy diet . And especially if the product is made from durum wheat. A long-term study has shown that people who get about 50% of their calories from carbohydrates tend to live longer.

But the excessive or insufficient number of them, scientists suggest, gives the opposite effect. Remember that although processed carbohydrates (sweets, cookies) can really dangerous increase blood sugar levels, this does not apply to so-called correct carbohydrates.


Low-fat milk seems to you a more reasonable choice? And very vain. First, whole milk is a fantastic source of calcium, protein, fat, vitamin D and other nutrients. Plus, a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown that milk fat does not adversely affect cardiovascular disease or mortality.

Moreover, there is evidence that the consumption of milk fat is associated with a lower risk of obesity.


Despite the fact that the potato does not fall into the category of healthy carbohydrates, it contains healthy components. Which ones? At a minimum, this vegetable is an excellent source of potassium, vitamin C and the fibers necessary for optimal digestion.

So if for a dinner you suddenly want a potato in a uniform – so be it.


Pepper and salt are the main natural flavor enhancers that make any dish better. But if you think that salt is a “white poison”, then perhaps you should think again. The fact is that the evidence of the danger of seasoning is much less convincing than it may seem.

Thus, new studies show that salt does not have a significant effect on human health, except for patients with high blood pressure.

However, here, as with many other products, moderation is important. And also – the rejection of processed foods, which contain up to 70% of sodium consumed by mankind.
