The idea that proteins help to gain weight may be motivated because the meat, which is a major source of this nutrient, is also often contain fat. But there are cuts with less fat, and there are other healthier sources of protein, you have to eat meat.
For example, fish and shellfish are an excellent source of protein because they usually are low in fat. Some fish like salmon are a little higher in fat but healthy rate, known as omega-3.
White meats, like chicken and turkey are also a good alternative, although it is preferable to remove the skin when cooked, as it contains a lot of saturated fat. Even the pork, which is also within this group, contains 31 percent less fat than 20 years ago. Read the rest of this entry »
Food gives us all the necessary nutrients for the body to develop normally and that each organ to function properly in order to maintain good health and fitness. The proteins specifically are required to build and maintain bones, muscles and skin, among other functions. Find out how a diet rich in protein, correctly.
There are several types of foods that provide protein, the most popular are meat, dairy and animal products in general. For example, a piece of pork, chicken or cheese contains what is called complete proteins, ie contains all the amino acids the body can not produce itself, which are 9 and are called essential amino acids (the Amino acids are the building blocks that the body gets to digest protein).
There are also vegetables containing proteins, such as peas (peas or peas), lentils, beans (green beans, beans, beans) and quinoa. But in these cases the proteins that provide incomplete, ie they do not have all the necessary amino acids and so these foods must be combined with others to complete the requirements of the body (people who follow a vegan diet can get the nine amino acids essential eating a wide variety of vegetables rich in protein).

Due to the natural body changes during pregnancy (especially in the stomach and other digestive organs, which is invaded by the uterus), it is possible to be any kind of intolerance in relation to food in other circumstances were accepted easily .
1) They usually cause discomfort foods and strong spices of all kinds, fried foods, sausages, smoked or salted fish and elaborate cakes.
2) Reduce the consumption of all foods of third category or no nutritional value, devitalized, demineralized and desvitaminizados.
3) A proper diet is necessary to prevent or reduce the consumption of substances that essentially contain caffeine, which excite and stimulate the body, without feeding. When the mother drinks coffee, the caffeine level in the blood of the embryo reaches immediately the same as that of the mother but the mother while caffeine is eliminated over time, in the embryo the removal process is much more slow. Caffeine ingested through coffee, tea, cocoa and cola. Taken in quantities interferes with the growth and development of the fetus, causing low birth weight and increasing the risk of spontaneous abortions, and also to inhibit iron absorption by the body.
4) should also avoid all canned foods or complex preparation, because the more elaborate a meal, more is depleted of nutrients while increasing their calorie content.
5) It is desirable to reduce the consumption of spicy food, of raw or undercooked meat, remember that toxoplasmosis is transmitted from cat to the cow, which may cause food poisoning, such as shellfish, mussels or oysters. Read the rest of this entry »
While diet is what determines the amount of fat in your middle, and therefore, being slim or not, exercise determines the degree of toning and therefore can obtain a flat stomach. Swimming exercises you can achieve that goal.
Swimming is an aerobic exercise, because if you do not have specific physical conditioning is very difficult to swim at a high intensity, and fatigue that would come in quickly.
Thus is made medium-low intensity, but the abdominal muscle tone is benefited if you respect certain aspects that have to do with the position of swimming.
The horizontal position favors the recruitment of the muscles of the middle to give synergy and balance in motion. This is accomplished by shrinking abdominal semi-permanent level, bringing the navel towards the spine.
This sustained muscle work for several minutes allows the development and increase the basic tone of the entire abdominal wall. Also the movement in the water, allowed to burn calories, reducing fat deposits.
Swimming exercises thus recommended to do them all in a horizontal position, floating, and taking into account the synergy that makes the middle.
A system with plenty of vegetables and fruit, along with the practice of light exercise, are the most appropriate tools to combat abuses of Christmas gourmet
Try to resist the delicious menus to ensure Christmas celebrations is as improbable as ignoring a tray of candy every time we passed it. Therefore, the shock to get on the scales and find that needle goes longer than normal is a tradition once the holiday whirlwind. And if food were not enough, the inactivity that often accompanies the holiday period is the worst companion of abuse calories, so January will not only climb the slope is economic, but also establish a good cut of food. Although suddenly restrict food is not always the best option.
Avoid consumption of certain foods, moderation in food rations and heavy supply of vegetables is effective if purchased as a habit. Schemes and miracle products are elements of fiction as much as our imagination to dream of them. In addition to the reprimands of consciousness, enjoy a good meal has so often result in embarrassment or indigestion, “but its impact is limited in the long term,” says Sonia Gaztambide endocrine, unless there is “a complication previous illnesses, which could lead to a drop or pancreatitis, “the most serious effects of ingestion exorbitant.
But the general rule states that ‘once a year, as you say, does no harm’, confirmed the doctor. The damage extended to health is discarded, while another arises, the psychological, which requires unwittingly deprived of essential nutrients with a consequent weakening of the organism. Imprudent, if not carried out by medical pre-scription.
The first step to any weight loss plan is to forget consumed laxatives and derivatives ‘motu proprio’.
That of “cleanse the body ‘does not exist. “It’s terminology that makes no sense. The body already has a system for disposal of products that do not need. What causes weight gain calories are deposited as fat.
Diets “Miracle” high protein: Three reasons why they fail
The American essayist H. L. Mencken once said that “for every complex problem there is a simple solution – and is wrong.” His observation is still appropriate when applied to the current fashion of miracle diets.
Weight loss involves many factors, including caloric intake, exercise habits and beliefs about a “right” way of eating. Facing this dilemma, many people seek a simple fix. The authors of bad diets respond quickly, their ideas circulating through popular books, lectures and talks.
High protein diets share common claims
The books that promote low-calorie diets rich in protein and are currently the “hottest”. For example, The Energy of Proteins, Merge on The Zone, The Revolutionary Diet Dr. Atkins and The 5 Day Miracle Diet.
While plans differ in details, they share some statements:
Myth # 1: If we eat too much carbohydrate, we have too much insulin in our body. Excess insulin puts us in what one writer calls “the hell of carbohydrate. It is supposedly the result of increased heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and a large number of health problems.
Myth # 2: Humans originally enjoyed a high protein diet. Our genetic bodies “tuned” to this way of eating.
Myth # 3: You can quickly and permanently lose weight by consuming more protein and eating too few carbohydrates.
In sum, these diets say “hello meat, poultry, fish, and eggs and goodbye fruits, vegetables, and grains.”
Three reasons to doubt these assertions
In reality, the weight of scientific evidence contradicts the high protein exaggeration:
* Insulin is a hormone that moves glucose from the bloodstream into cells of the body. Therefore, insulin is crucial to human health, releasing the energy we need to continue our daily lives.
* Even if we accept to avoid some kind of argument, that human nutrition is focused on proteins once during a period that does not mean that diets high in protein are the most optimal for our health, especially because we live longer than our ancestors and have more time to accumulate fat. Foods high in protein are probably the most high in cholesterol and saturated fats – substances that can promote heart disease and various cancers.

Of the 13 most important vitamins in the formulas for skin care are vitamin A, E, C and panthenol.
Vitamin A (beta carotene)
The body produces vitamin A, therefore we must get in our diet. Vitamin A increases the activity of enzymes and stimulates skin cell division (regeneration of the skin), improving skin condition. Cosmetic products containing vitamin A improves skin elasticity and regenerate prematurely aged skin, contributes to a more youthful skin looking smooth and even.
Vitamin A normalizes the skin keratizacion (cell renewal), this is the process that works against dry skin. This makes it very effective to improve conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne Vulgarities. It also improves collagen production and thus contributes to a firmer skin.
Many people do diet foods by reducing fat and increased protein. The man who wants to have big muscles also intentionally expand the protein in food intake. Though the concept was wrong, the excess protein is precisely the source of the disease for the body.
Protein is necessary to build body muscle, skin tissue, hair, nails and more. But be careful, mostly eating protein could endanger health. There have been many scientific studies that prove the dangers of excess protein for the body.
“The number of proteins that more than 30 percent of calories your body needs could endanger health”. Unlike fat cells that can be stored in fat tissue if the excess, the body does not have a place to store excess protein. Therefore, most of the protein is converted into fat body first to be saved. This is the key of the dangers of excess protein.
The more protein that is converted into fat in the body’s fat stores to grow, and that means the risk of disease will come from fat, ranging from high cholesterol to heart disease
Excess protein is not good for the kidneys, liver and causes the body to vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Excess protein is also closely linked to osteoporosis and cancer.
Excess protein can produce compounds that are toxic ketones. These compounds will cause the kidneys work harder to get them out of the body. As a result, the kidneys will need more water and hence dehydration appear.
If the body is dehydrated, weight can be decreased due to muscle and bone mass decreases. As a result, there is the risk of osteoporosis. Dehydration also causes the kidneys to stress and its effects will impact on the heart.
Ketone compounds and dehydration also causes the body to become weak, dizzy, bad breath and others. Protein can also cause allergic reactions, such as dermatitis topic, chilblain, collagen disease, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Excessive animal protein can damage DNA and cells change into cancer cells.
Ideally someone needs 0.72 grams of protein for each kilogram of body weight. So if you weight 80 kg, the protein that is required is about 57 grams.
If someone reproduce the consumption of protein without carbohydrate intake, the body will turn protein into glucose that should be the task of producing glucose carbohydrates.
But the changed proteins are not able to build muscle. Needed to build muscle is to exercise regularly with a sufficient protein intake. However, the body still needs protein synthesis to enzymes, hormones, and others against infection.
For that, should act in balance if they want to consume high protein foods like meat, cheese, milk and eggs.
