British dietician Catherine Collins (Catherine Collins) from St. George’s Hospital in London said in an interview with the Daily Mail newspaper about the most common errors sovremennogof rights related to food.
Misconception number one is that a late dinner or a meal at night and you will certainly add extra pounds. As shown by research scientists, it is not. It turned out that no matter when you eat, it is not important to go beyond the norm of the total daily calories.
The second myth states that physical activity is contraindicated immediately after a meal. Many people think that after a meal, blood actively enters into the intestine to maintain the digestive process. Physical exercise also require of blood flow to the muscles to supply them with oxygen.Thus, it was believed that the load after a meal promotes circulation disorder. However, scientists have found out that exercise after meals can perform. This applies to the intensive walks, swimming and any other type of activity.
In third place is a picture of beer as a good source of iron, as well as the fact that it is useful during pregnancy. First, to get as much iron as is contained in one egg yolk (1.1 milligrams), had to drink three pints (0,5 liter) of beer.In this case, one cup of the drink contains less than three percent of the daily requirement of iron. Secondly, alcohol in any form is contraindicated for pregnant women.
Vitamin C may protect against flu and colds, says the myth number four.In fact, this vitamin (200 milligrams a day) can only reduce cold symptoms and then no more than eight hours. However, to stop the infection he can not.
Myth five – good coffee diuretic, promotes removal of excess fluid from the body.Contained in this drink caffeine truly has a slight diuretic effect. However, he appears only in the case when you are not accustomed to use products containing this alkaloid – coffee, tea, chocolate, energy drinks.If they are consumed regularly, the liver quickly neutralizes diuretic effect of caffeine.
Many people also believe that the consumption of milk promotes the development of excess mucus in the body.For example, every third Briton stop drinking milk during the cold, fearing that it would exacerbate a runny nose, cough and other symptoms of the disease. Recent studies have found that a sense of a large number of mucus after drinking milk is false.It is only temporary and is caused by milk fat, which in small quantities remains on the oral cavity.
And finally, the widespread assertion that people should eat at least two liters of fluid a day. This, scientists have begun to speak in the 50’s of last century.However, while many do not consider one important point – these two liters should be included and that the fluid that comes into contact with food. Therefore, you should not drink more than the required organism, all the same excess water simply goes out of the body naturally, wrote katoga in my LJ.
