Skipping breakfast is bad for your health
If one morning you wake up late or have no appetite and want to save breakfast, maybe the phrase “breakfast must be eaten” will be thrown on your face by your mother immediately. However, skipping breakfast must be harmful to the body?
Many scientific research institutions hold their own opinions. Some claim that skipping breakfast is harmful and increase the incidence of heart disease and diabetes; some claim that skipping breakfast is beneficial because it forms an intermittent fasting diet. Can reduce energy intake and improve body metabolism.
So do we eat or not? In any case, skipping breakfast is not as scary as the legend, such as stomach problems, kidney stones, etc. We can follow a simple principle: eat when you are hungry, or not eat when you are hungry (patients need to follow the doctor’s advice). In fact, what you eat is more important than eating or not eating. Therefore, if you want to eat, eat healthily. Don’t eat foods that are too greasy or too high in sugar.
Exercise can lose weight
Running regularly, playing ball games, and doing aerobics will indeed make you healthier and feel better. However, when it comes to weight loss, exercise is by no means a panacea. The energy consumed by physical exercise only accounts for 10% to 30% of the total energy intake of the human body (except for professional athletes). You need to run for 1 hour at a moderate speed to consume the calories from eating a cone ice cream. Exercise makes you hungrier and encourages you to eat more, unless you have good self-control.
Moreover, studies have shown that after regular exercise, you may consume less energy at rest than before you participated in exercise. For example, before you have exercise habits, your body can consume 1,500 calories a day during rest, but when you participate in exercise for one year, your body consumes only 1,200 calories a day during rest. This may be an energy regulation mechanism evolved by humans to ensure that primitive humans have energy available when hunting or escaping, but it is not conducive to weight loss.
The most important principle for weight loss is “output calories>input calories”, and keeping your mouth shut is the first priority. While dieting, you can maintain your health through exercise and increase your “calorie output”. Remember not to reward yourself with extra food just because you exercise.
Calorie is a unit of energy. Calories are commonly used to calculate the energy contained in food and the energy absorbed or consumed by the body. Many food energy tables have appeared on the Internet and books, and the energy numbers of various foods have been marked, so that people who need to lose weight or control their body shape can calculate their daily absorption and consumption.
However, this is very inaccurate. First, the basal metabolic rate of different people is different, and the gap can reach 25%. The same food is given to different people, some people will grow meat, some people will not; secondly, the food energy value is estimated, 231 calories The rice must have more energy than the 212-calorie sweet potato? In addition, cooking methods will change the complex structure of the cells in the food and change the energy value. Over-processed food will add dozens of additives, and their energy may be higher than the food itself.
Therefore, if the mother still eats according to food calories, you can tell her that this is very unscientific.
Is vegetarian diet the healthiest way to eat?
In recent years, vegetarianism has become popular and has become a new fashion. Some vegetarians only eat plants and eggs, and some do not eat animal-related foods, such as milk and eggs, except for real plants. This diet is very beneficial to animals and the environment, however, for humans, there is not enough evidence to show that it is beneficial.
Scientific statistics show that vegetarian children are usually shorter than normal diet children, and vegetarians do not live longer than normal dieters. Vegetarians also lack vitamin B12 (a kind of vitamin B12 that cannot be synthesized by the body itself, but can only be obtained by eating meat). Nutritional ingredients) and iron (pig, beef, and lamb are rich in iron).
There are indeed a lot of people who eat too much meat, which exceeds their needs, burdens the body, and even brings diseases. But eating no meat at all or hardly is another matter. In short, vegetarianism is by no means synonymous with health.
