Food Parachute: This trick will reduce the health effects of junk food


My Stanford teacher, Dr. Clyde Wilson, described a simple trick: it will come in handy for many who are unable to refuse junk food, but at least think a little about their health. But Dr. Wilson knows what he’s talking about: he received a doctorate in chemistry at Stanford University and at the same time teaches at UCSF medical schools, and also heads the Sports Medicine Institute. In his article, Dr. Wilson tells how to continue to eat pizza and fast food, significantly reducing their detrimental effect on our body. I hasten to share a secret with you, translating, with the permission of the author, an article in Russian:

“Today we take food as a drug, because in busy schedules we need a quick way to keep moving. And the food industry provides us with tasty, inexpensive and convenient food that successfully satisfies our need Continue reading

How does heat treatment of vegetables affect vitamin content?

Recently, one of my readers asked a question about how baked bell peppers are rich in vitamin C or is it completely resolved by heat treatment.

Checklist: 11 signs, what are your problems with eating behavior

Nowadays, anyone can face a DISSOLUTION of FOOD BEHAVIOR, and this is not a joke: according to statistics, as a result of such disorders, one person dies every hour. These conditions include not only anorexia nervosa and bulimia, but also “drunken” eating, diabetes (a disorder in which people with diabetes refuse insulin in order to lose weight), dieting or “detox” systems; at the same time, a person’s perception of his own body and relations with food are disturbed. The reasons for the development of eating disorders are not entirely clear – both genetics and environmental factors, such as the influence of society and popular culture, play a role. This problem concerns people of any age, gender and gender. We have compiled a list of eleven symptoms that may indicate eating habits. Continue reading

Fat is a Feminist Topic: Why Everyone Crossed on intuitive nutrition

IN THE LAST TIME, IT IS MUCH more often possible to hear the phrase “intuitive nutrition”, and several heroines of our recent material about diets and breakdowns said that it helped them come to peace with their own body and food.
