Why whole foods are healthier than refined foods

In my articles, I often call products whole or unprocessed in an industrial way and urge them to be preferred. Refined foods can be considered the antipodes of whole foods in the world of food, I decided to write about some of them.

How to choose healthy fats: seven tips

Which fats are harmful and which are beneficial?
Let’s see what fats are good for the body. Fats are one of the key components of a healthy diet. Many people still mistakenly believe that fat is evil, because it is the most high-calorie, and reduce it in their diet. However, fats are different: harmful or beneficial. And some of them are vital for us.

For example, without omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, our existence is impossible, and fat-soluble vitamins will not be absorbed at all unless you eat fatty foods.

Can I use fat while losing weight?
In the past, the need to reduce fat intake for weight loss was based on the fact that fats contain about two times more calories per gram than carbohydrates or proteins. In fact, foods such as avocados, vegetable Continue reading
