The following are the tips on a healthy diet given by a Physician to stay healthy and prevent yourself from irreversible diseases.
The Chemical names and Additives
Physicians say Avoid products that list very long chemical names, such as MSG or Aspartame, without explaining what they are. Also avoid monosodium glutamate, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and potassium or calcium salts of mono- or diglycerides along with words like natural flavourings, artificial flavours, and spices. These may be hidden sources of monosodium glutamate, which is an excitotoxin that can cause brain damage when consumed in excess search by many Physicians.
Avoid foods that contain additives, including nitrates or nitrites, which are carcinogenic
Don’t eat foods containing artificial food colours such as Red No. 40 and Yellow No. 5, which may cause cancer.
Don’t eat microwaved or irradiated food because it loses its nutritional value and physician never recommend eating such food.
The Fruits, Vegetables, and Possessed meat
Eat five servings of fruits and vegetables every day for optimum health. Variety is good because each fruit varies with regard to phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals, and fibre it contains, so try not to have the same kind of fruit all the time. Have at least one vegetable-based main dish daily to keep yourself healthy as by physician.
Drink one glass of fresh vegetable juice daily for optimum nutrition, or drink 10 glasses of water—the ideal hydration fluid—daily because it flushes out toxins through urination while increasing the flow of nutrients to cells throughout the body, Also cut down on caffeine, which dehydrates the body.
Never eat processed meats—such as hot dogs, bologna, or lunch meat—which contain nitrites and chemical preservatives that can lead to certain cancers when eaten in excess. Nitrates have been deemed safe by the U.S., but they convert to carcinogenic nitrosamines with heat, especially when used to preserve meats at high temperatures for a long time. Avoid them by using natural sources of vitamin B3, niacin, or tryptophan instead.
The Sodium, Dairy products, and Nutrition
Every Physician deals with cases of High blood pressure and stroke in daily practice so the Physician always advises Eat no more than 2,500 milligrams of sodium per day. This reduces the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.
Choose whole grains over refined-grain products, such as white flour, because they are more nutritious.
Don’t eat too much bread, pasta, and other carbohydrate-rich foods containing lots of slowly metabolized starch such as potatoes because such foods can make you fat. Such foods cause blood sugar to peak and then fall, leaving you hungry again soon after eating them. An excess of grain products is also associated with certain cancers in laboratory animals when eaten in excess. Best choices: whole grains and beans which provide complex carbohydrates (preferably organic) and soluble fibre which slashes cholesterol levels besides being easy to digest.
Avoid cold breakfast cereals, which are mostly processed wheat products containing partially hydrogenated soybean oil, a source of trans fats that not only raise your LDL cholesterol level but also lower HDL levels. Best choices: hot cereal such as bran flakes or oatmeal—try adding raisins or nuts for added nutrition, along with high-fibre/low-glycemic index fruits.
Don’t eat too much-cooked food because it loses most of its nutritional value, so eat plenty of raw foods including salads every day.
