Healthy Food Dubai
A Healthy Diet
There are several key ideas to eating a healthy diet. We recommend these ideas for a healthy food Dubai.
- Eat a Variety of Foods:
There are many different nutrients that the body requires but they come from many
different types of food. Variety is very important.
- Eat Plemty of Grains, Vegetables and Fruits:
These food types should be the largest group of portions that you should eat on a daily basis. These provide valuable vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates.
This component is very important for the healthy function of the bowel and is shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers.
- Organic Food:
Most food is mass produced and in order to speed up production, includes additives and preservatives which can be poison to your body. Where ever you can, purchase organic food to avoid these chemicals.
- Fat & Cholesterol:
Some fats are very useful for the body such as fatty acids which can be found in food like fish. Saturated fats should be avoided (although there is nothing wrong with treating yourself every now and then). Similarly you should reduce the consumption of food with high levels of cholesterol.
The use of sugar as a preservative and along with its addictive nature makes it a very important component in any diet. If you add to much sugar to your diet then your body cannot process it and will turn into fat. Avoid canned / processed food and only eat natural / organic food where possible.
This is another ingredient that you should monitor. Once again, used as a natural preservative, but can be harmful in excessive quantities causing high blood pressure and other illnesses.
Protein is used in every single cell in our body and is critical for building muscle mass, supporting neurological function, aiding in digestion, helping to balance hormones naturally and keeping our mood upbeat. Protein foods are also beneficial for preventing weight gain since they make us feel full and require more work for the body to digest than fast-acting refined carbohydrates.
What exactly are proteins?
Proteins are considered long chains of amino acids, which are the important molecules we get from our diet. Amino acids can be found in many different types of foods, even vegetables, but the highest sources are those that come from animals – like meat, dairy, eggs and fish – plus to a lesser extent certain plant foods like beans and seeds.
Although amino acids are separate chemical compounds that are stored in a range of different foods, in the body they are held together by peptide bonds. Without enough diverse protein food sources in your diet, you risk becoming deficient in certain amino acids. The result? Low energy, trouble building muscle mass, low concentration and memory, mood swings, unstable blood sugar levels and trouble maintaining or losing weight. Proteins are used every single day to keep the body going.
Because they are used to develop, grow and maintain just about every part of our body – from our skin and hair to our digestive enzymes and immune system antibodies – they are constantly being broken down and must be replaced.
Eating too little protein can result in these symptoms:
- A sluggish metabolism
- Trouble losing weight
- Trouble building muscle mass
- Low energy levels and fatigue
- Poor concentration and trouble learning
- Moodiness and mood swings
- Muscle, bone and joint pain
- Blood sugar changes that can lead to diabetes
- Slow wound healing
- Low immunity
This demonstrates that protein is a vital part of healthy food dubai.
