A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF WHAT SOME OF THE NUTRIENTS ARE ABOUT:-
Protein-rich foods increase metabolic rate over 3 times more than carbs and fats. These include eggs, milk, yogurt etc. Now, every person believes that losing calories does help in losing weight but what if you consumed more calories and lost fat? Sounds too good to be true but let me tell you, it’s not.
Protein rich food contains something which is known as amino acid called “leucine” which helps in inhibiting the loss of calorie-burning muscles when you are trying to lose fat, as well as age-related muscle loss. So, eat food which is protein rich!
Eating fiber rich food is also a way of keeping the digestive system healthy. Fibre is known to cure many problems that people often face such as diabetes, blood cholesterol levels and are also effective in dealing with weight problems and are used for weight control.
Foods rich in fiber include cereals, fruits, and vegetables.
The right amount of fiber to eat every day for a healthy adult is 14 grams as recommended by the USDA (U.S.Department of Agriculture) for every 1,000 calories consumed.
Thus, a person eating 2,000 calories a day should aim at eating 28 grams of fibers regularly.
It is noticed that on food labels, the nutritional facts have the grams of dietary fibers already included in the total carbohydrate count but since, fiber is a type of carbohydrate that our body just does not digest, it has no effects on our blood sugar levels. You should subtract the grams of fiber from the total carbohydrate.
Many people have the assumption that brown sugar is better than white sugar. Well, isn’t it?
No, it’s not. Maybe brown rice and bread but brown sugar are not better than white sugar because brown sugar is simply refined white sugar with molasses ( thick dark brown juice obtained from sugar) added. While molasses bring in a few minerals, they are so rare that they don’t confirm calories. Sugar does not have any fiber and has fructose,glucose or sucrose which gets refined in our blood stream and thus is excreted faster.
THE ONLY TASTE HUMAN BEINGS ARE BORN CRAVING IS THE TASTE OF SUGAR
Sugar can have beneficial effects on an individual’s metabolism but try to stop yourself from eating those sugar coated donuts, cereals, and croissants as they can have negative effects on individual health.
The scary word for many people who are always trying to lose weight and stay fit. However, fats do benefit the human body in many ways.
Foods that are rich in fats such as cheese, fatty fish, butter and many others are nutritious. In the case of cheese, it is made by using a full cup of milk for the production of a slice of cheese.
Even though spreads for bread such as those of cheese, butter etc are low in calories and fat, they should only be used in small amounts. Fatty foods cause reactions such as gas and long-term effects such as the heightened danger of heart disease. The New York Times Health Guide recommends that an individual should put a limit on the intake of saturated fats and trans fats as well as consume plant-based fats that are unsaturated such as nuts and olives for improved wellbeing. It is also advised to seek guidance from a healthcare specialist or a dietician/ nutritionist.
Some carbohydrates include jams, refined potato products etc.
Although, there are healthy carbohydrates as well such as fruits,vegetables, yogurt, nuts etc.
These are the body’s main source of energy.
When an individual takes more than the required amount of carbohydrates, it leads to an increased intake of calories. These are stored as fats. Carbohydrates can also increase blood sugar levels which are not healthy. This can lead to diabetes. Thus, it is important to eat the right amount of carbohydrates.
