Monodiet – benefit or harm

The topic of losing weight has always been popular, especially in women’s societies. But no one thinks about the fact that proper weight loss is a set of measures, and not just a restriction in some products.

Recently, mono-diets have become famous. In principle, these are the same unloading days, but their duration is not one day, but much more. Most often, unloading days of harm to the body do not bring. But about such a diet can not be said.

Throughout the mono-diet, you should consume only one product, the amount of which, as a rule, is limited. For example, rice, apples, buckwheat porridge, cottage cheese. Other foods are extracted from your daily diet. But you can use water in any quantity. Plus such a diet is that you can lose weight very quickly, literally in a few days, and the results will be visible to the naked eye.

Unfortunately, there will be more negative sides in such diets. The human body constantly needs to perform cell renewal, but this can not be done without different nutrients. In nature, there is no such product, in which there will be a sufficient number of all necessary elements. That is why we must use products of different content, thereby replenishing internal reserves. When the body lacks any substance, it “pulls” it from the internal organs, muscles. Yes, at such times you can lose weight, but you lose not fat, but muscle mass. The whole fatty layer remains in place. Burning it can be done with the help of special exercises, physical exertion. It will be more correct to withdraw about 3-5 kg for about 30 days. And you can lose weight in a month only due to a combination of proper nutrition and correction of your body with the help of sports.

Another disadvantage of using mono-diet is a decrease in metabolism and metabolism. The first – the third day we can lose a good amount of extra pounds, and the body will necessarily feel the changes that occur with it. Further, all the processes in the body are gradually slowing down. And here comes the most unpleasant for you: when you leave the diet, you start eating those foods that are always present in your diet, and the body stores all the missing calories in almost all places in your body. But the most important thing is that now they are deposited in the form of fat, and not muscle mass. In a couple of weeks you will notice that your weight has returned to its former state, and perhaps even more than it was before the diet.

No self-respecting nutritionist will advise you to use mono-diets, as they can also damage the internal organs. Kefir diet causes diarrhea. Buckwheat causes a constant feeling of hunger. Curd causes in the body a glut of proteins. And the oatmeal diet causes iron deficiency in the body.

If you still decided to stay for a few days on one of the above diets, then be sure to consult a doctor. It will also help you choose a complex of multivitamin preparations that must be taken in parallel with any diet.

In order to properly lose weight, you just need to adhere to a healthy diet and give yourself physical exertion. If you observe these two rules, your body will always be in good shape without using different diets and other methods of losing weight.


How to strengthen the bones from the young

We all want, as long as possible, to stay in good physical shape. A huge role in this play strong bones. In youth, we often do not think about it, and then problems begin. The reasons why the bones lose their density may be different: malnutrition, high physical exertion, especially without exercise, during pregnancy and breastfeeding, illness, overweight and sedentary lifestyle.

There are three sources that will help us to strengthen the bones:

1. Proper nutrition

It’s no secret that the main basis for bones is calcium, but where is the best place to take it? An adult should use at least 1 gram of calcium per day to maintain normal bone tissue. As you know, most of the calcium is found in milk, cream, kefir, yoghurt, cheese and cottage cheese. It is also available, but less, in vegetables: spinach, broccoli, carrots, parsley, cabbage and other vegetables of orange and green color. But vegetables can not be analogous to dairy products, since their vitamins are not fully absorbed without fats, for example, vegetable oil. Plus, one must definitely eat liver, eggs, dried apricots, prunes, figs, whole grains, sardines and other seafood, as calcium is poorly absorbed without phosphorus and vice versa. All these products are a good source of trace elements such as iron, zinc, manganese, copper, fluorine and vitamins C and K. But the most important source of natural collagen is meat and bone broth of animal origin. Of course, by and large, all vitamins and trace elements should be consumed, because all the elements of the periodic table, even in microdoses, are in our bodies, and that there is not one that “treats one and cripples the other”, we must eat Everything, but within reasonable limits. For example, the abuse of salt, meat, carbonated beverages, white bread, spaghetti, refined sugar, industrial sauces adversely affects the bones; therefore, these products should be consumed less and compensated for by their usefulness.

2. Vitamin D

The second source of strength for bones is the sun. More are in the open air in warm, sunny weather, then vitamin D is allocated, which promotes good absorption of all other vitamins. And, as recommendations, try not to overcool, avoid drafts and often take a hot bath in the cold season.

3. Doing sports

If the muscles are strong, then the bones are strong. For this, they must regularly test the load. It improves blood circulation and normalizes the exchange of calcium. Accordingly, any physical activity is very useful for bones and joints, even some simple, primitive exercises will have a very good impact on our health, especially if they are properly selected. You can, for example, from time to time dumbbells are easy to pull, to crouch with them, etc. The main thing is to do everything without fanaticism. It is worth mentioning that swimming is one of the most useful sports, where all muscle groups are involved.

Weak bones are not only inconvenience and hindrance to some activities, but also diseases such as: osteoporosis, arthrosis, ostiomyelitis, bone tumor and others. And at the age, especially after 50 years – it can be fractures, bruises and loss of teeth. Therefore, in childhood and youth it is necessary to lay a strong foundation.

Completing the article, it is necessary to clarify that these are only general recommendations designed for a healthy, average person, so that if you are already worried about something, it is better to consult a competent doctor.

Be healthy and beautiful.

Food Reset

Our mood, well-being, readiness to change in many ways, as it does not sound strange, is determined by what we eat.

It has long been noted that vegetarians are more resistant to disease, are peace-loving and ready for change. While “meat eaters” are belligerent, irritable, prone to hypertension and conservative. Excess animal protein provokes stress hormones and attacks. Want to change yourself – change your menu. For example, you can restore your peace of mind with pumpkin seeds and cabbage salad. Folic acid and zinc contained in them act peacefully.

For vital activity in your diet should appear freshly squeezed juices: orange, tangerine, grapefruit, currant and cocktails of them, adding lemon or lime. The ascorbic acid contained in them gives strength for the implementation of plans and plans, serves as a kind of stimulator of will.

Carrots with sour cream are called salad updates. It helps to regulate the metabolism in the brain cells and evokes interest in the environment and the thirst for activity.

Rapid adaptation to help come polyunsaturated fatty acids, potassium with calcium. Enter in the daily menu olive oil, olives, avocado, dried apricots, baked apples and dairy products.

To restore the novelty of feelings and perception will help spices: thyme, ginger, rosemary. Protect from the daily overload of berries. It is a good source of antioxidants.

One of the main reasons for inertia, unwillingness to work on oneself is irrational nutrition. The lack of vitamins and minerals, as well as preservatives, artificial flavors, dyes and fillers, contained in drinks and food adversely affect the metabolism in the brain. In addition, foods stuffed with chemistry can cause allergies, and when it worsens, an excess of seratonin enters the bloodstream, causing an upsurge and erratic activity. If you aspire to positive changes in your life, refuse sausages, soda, chips, canned food and refined products.

Remember, revolutions begin on an empty stomach. After a dense dinner, the only desire is to nip on the couch in front of the TV. Try to limit fat and trim your portion, i.e. From the table you have to get up with a feeling of not quite satisfied appetite. It will be a signal to the organism: it is necessary to work, there is no time to be lazy, it’s time to act.
