The only recommended drink is water, with a variable saline profile based on subjective needs, and to an extent of about 750-1000ml / day (very variable). Of all the foods listed above, it is necessary to avoid: preserved in salt, in oil, in syrup, preserves and overly elaborate recipes. Also, all sweets and junk foods should be drastically cut down.
Food hygiene is a cornerstone of healthy eating. Hygiene does not only mean biological and microbiological safety (bacteria, viruses, prions, parasites, etc.), certainly very important, but also protection against all forms of chemical or pharmacological contamination.
Among the various measures, first of all there is the choice between the sources of supply.
It may seem disappointing but, to date, the best are the conventional ones from large retailers.
Thanks to the strict hygiene controls, it is possible to find the safest foods on supermarket counters; on the contrary, buying through the streets often proves to be risky. For example, for fruit and vegetable foods, the most frequent frauds concern the sale of false “organic” products or others that have not respected the disposal times for pesticide treatments.
- For meat and eggs, on the other hand, the greatest risk is that they come from sick animals or from animals stuffed with drugs.
- In the latter context, the slaughtering and conservation phases also play an essential role; obviously, the higher the means and processing technologies, the better the levels of food safety will be.
Food must therefore be guaranteed starting from production / breeding (diseases, environmental contamination, etc.), up to transport and for all the preservation prior to sale (maintenance of temperatures, of the cold chain, etc.).
Have you been exaggerating at the table lately? Follow our tips for healthy eating.
There are times when it is more difficult to follow the diet, but you don’t have to feel defeated or, worse, decide to give it up. With Melarossa’s advice you will be able to get back on track.
Dr. Piretta also claims it: a mistake every now and then is not a tragedy and does not compromise your efforts to lose weight. Indeed, a little gratification can help you stay motivated and follow the diet with more optimism and a good mood.
The important thing is that between one mistake and another, you adopt a daily line of conduct that keeps you on the right path: that of eating healthy.
The nutritionist’s advice for healthy eating
Eating healthy is a matter of habit and is much simpler than you think.
Just follow some simple basic rules and, every now and then, even indulge in a little joy.
Doctor Piretta explains: “When we eat, we must keep in mind that all the food groups that make up our diet must be included in our daily diet: fruit, vegetables, fish, meat and, occasionally, even wine and sweets”.
The important thing is that the proportions are respected: “The Mediterranean diet is based on a large intake of fiber, so we should have 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day, a portion of compound carbohydrates, such as pasta or rice, and then fish or meat, once a day.
Meat must be eaten a couple of times a week at the most. ” But, the nutritionist emphasizes, there is no “standard diet”: on the contrary, the diet must be tailored to our specific needs and characteristics, just like the Melarossa diet does.
