Adequate nutrition



Awareness of the shortcomings of the concept of a balanced diet stimulated new scientific research in the field of physiology of digestion, food biochemistry and microbiology.
First, it has been proven that dietary fiber is a necessary component of food.
Secondly, new digestion mechanisms were discovered, according to which food digestion occurs not only in the intestinal cavity, but also directly on the intestinal wall, on the membranes of intestinal cells using enzymes.
Third, a previously unknown special hormonal system of the intestine was discovered;
And finally, fourth, valuable information was obtained regarding the role of microbes that live permanently in the intestine, and their relationship with the host organism.
All this led to the emergence of a new concept in dietetics - the concept of adequate nutrition, which absorbed everything valuable from the theory and practice of a balanced diet.
According to the new trends, an idea of ​​endoecology, the internal ecology of man, was formed, based on the statement of the important role of the intestinal microflora. It has been proven that a special relationship of interdependence is maintained between the human body and the microbes that live in its intestines.
In accordance with the provisions of the theory of adequate nutrition, nutrients are formed from food during the enzymatic cleavage of its macromolecules, both through abdominal and membrane digestion, as well as through the formation of new compounds in the intestine, including essential ones.

Normal nutrition of the human body is not caused by a single stream of nutrients from the gastrointestinal tract into the internal environment, but by several streams of nutrients and regulatory substances.
At the same time, of course, the main nutrient flux consists of amino acids, monosaccharides (glucose, fructose), fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, formed in the process of enzymatic breakdown of food. But, in addition to the main stream, five more independent streams of various substances enter the internal environment from the gastrointestinal tract. Among them, the flow of hormonal and physiologically active compounds produced by cells of the gastrointestinal tract deserves special attention. These cells secrete about 30 hormones and hormone-like substances that control not only the work of the digestive system, but also the most important functions of the whole organism.
In the intestine, three more specific streams are formed, associated with the intestinal microflora, representing the waste products of bacteria, modified ballast substances and modified food substances.
Finally, it is conditional that harmful or toxic substances from contaminated food are released into a separate stream.
Thus, the basic idea of ​​the new theory was that nutrition should not only be balanced, but also adequate, that is, appropriate to the capabilities of the organism.

Adequate nutrition

  1. ADEQUACY AND CONCEPT OF COMPONENTS OF GENERAL ANESTHESIA
    Explanatory dictionaries define the term "adequate" as "quite appropriate." In relation to anesthesia, this means complying with the requirements that all participants in the surgical procedure impose on it: the patient does not want to “be present” at his own operation, the surgeon needs a “calm” and conveniently located surgical field, the anesthesiologist seeks to avoid unwanted
  2. The problem of an adequate method of research of human mental development
    The task of studying the peculiarities of the cultural - historical development of the psyche, higher mental functions and higher forms of human behavior requires an appropriate research method. The development of a new method of research was carried out by Vygotsky by contrasting the existing general method of experimentation, based on the theoretical positions of classical behaviorism and
  3. The prognostic importance of adequate treatment of diabetes in patients with diabetes
    Early risk stratification should be part of the assessment of patients with diabetes mellitus after acute coronary syndrome. In the treatment of each patient with diabetes mellitus after acute coronary syndrome, one should strive to achieve the goals of therapy listed in Table. 4.4. Patients with acute MI and diabetes mellitus are indicated for thrombolytic therapy on the same
  4. Electrophysiological studies to assess the adequacy of surgical and pacemaker treatment for ventricular arrhythmias
    Surgical intervention to control ventricular arrhythmia has become a recognized treatment method in many clinical centers. The newest methods based on the use of electrophysiological mapping have significantly improved the results of surgical treatment of arrhythmias. The majority of patients operated for ventricular arrhythmias have previous coronary artery disease, and
  5. Nutrition as a factor in the preservation and promotion of health. Physiological norms of nutrition. The value of the individual components of food in human nutrition. The value of proteins in human nutrition, their norms and sources of entry into the body
    Nutrition is one of the most active and important environmental factors, which has a variety of effects on the human body, ensures its growth, development, preservation of health, disability and optimal life expectancy. All this is provided by a daily, regulated meal with a certain set of foods. Foods are complex
  6. The concept of hygienic nutrition. Nutrition norms Food products, their composition and energy value.
    Nutrition is a complex process of receipt, digestion, absorption and assimilation in the body of nutrients necessary to cover its energy expenditure, build and renew cells and tissues of the body, and regulate the physiological functions of the body. In hygiene, the term “good nutrition” is adopted, which means a food built on a scientific basis that can fully meet the need for
  7. Medical nutrition monitoring of organized populations. Therapeutic and prophylactic nutrition
    Nutrition is one of the main factors determining human health. The organization of catering for a team is related to the type of institution (kindergarten, school, production facility, field camp, medical and preventive care facilities, army, etc.), the number of people and the duration of their stay in this facility. In most cases, health workers themselves take part in
  8. Weighted analysis of separate nutrition (indications and contraindications for the use of separate nutrition)
    It is easy to see, by virtue of the Russian mental, and thanks to our unsettled and wretched life, to criticize the theory of separate feeding is sheer pleasure. In fact, any of the conceptual provisions of separate nutrition for us, Russians, is either unacceptable or causes protest. We really can’t refuse potatoes with mushrooms, ravioli with sour cream, pasta with meatballs,
  9. Features of the diet in sports activities: food in the training and competitive periods. The mode of fluid intake.
    For beginner athletes who have significantly less training loads per day than highly skilled athletes and, consequently, less energy consumption, the daily intake of protein decreases slightly to 1.5-2 g per 1 kg of weight. However, regardless of the specialization and qualification of an athlete, proteins must provide at least 17% of the total caloric content of food.
  10. THE CONCEPT OF THE SANITARY MODE OF THE PUBLIC NUTRITION ENTERPRISE. SANITARY AND EPIDEMIOLOGICAL “RISK FACTORS” IN PUBLIC NUTRITION.
    One of the most important requirements for the work of catering enterprises is the production of benign, epidemically flawless products. This can be achieved only in the case when certain requirements to the work of a catering enterprise will be fully implemented. These requirements are set forth in various regulatory documents.
  11. Common Nutrition Theories
    The theory of adequate nutrition The theory of adequate nutrition arose as a result of the crisis of the classical theory of balanced nutrition, discoveries of new types of digestion and generalization of data on the functional characteristics of animals that lack the microflora of the gastrointestinal tract. We present some of the provisions of this theory. Adequate nutrition is nutrition that matches not only
  12. Power failure
    Diarrhea is actually the same nutritional disorder as the one that occurs with loss of fluid and electrolytes. Children who die of diarrhea, despite adequate relief of dehydration, usually suffer from malnutrition, sometimes in severe form. Against the background of diarrhea, the amount of food consumed often decreases and decreases in parallel.
  13. Questions in section: "FOOD HYGIENE"
    1. What element is underrepresented in milk: Answer options: a) calcium; b) iron; c) phosphorus; d) selenium; d) copper. 2. The combination of which products with bread gives the best balance of amino acids: Answer options: a) cabbage; b) potatoes; c) milk and lactic acid products; g) pumpkin porridge; e) carrots. 3. The destruction of ascorbic acid in food during storage and cooking
  14. Physiological and hygienic basis of nutrition
    Human nutrition as one of the forms of interaction of the organism with the environment is subject to special laws: · the law of energy adequacy of nutrition, which means that the amount of energy supplied from food must correspond to its energy consumption; · The law of substrate nutritional adequacy, in accordance with which food must meet morphofunctional indicators and characteristics
  15. Nutrition and rules of its organization
    Nutrition is considered rational if it replenishes the body’s energy expenditure, provides for its need for plastic substances, and also contains all the vitamins, macro- and microelements necessary for vital activity, dietary fiber, and the diet itself in terms of quantity and range of products corresponds to the enzymatic capabilities of the gastrointestinal tract. It's about nutrition with
  16. Provide enhanced nutrition
    Nutrition is an essential component of treating all children with refractory diarrhea. Since the usual diet of such children is often inadequate, the fact that therapy is provided is an excellent reason to teach mothers how to feed the baby properly. Outpatients should be prescribed a diet appropriate for their age, but with a reduced lactose content. Children
  17. Artificial nutrition
    The importance of adequate nutrition in critically ill patients cannot be overemphasized. Exhaustion causes dysfunction of many organs (Table 50-19), disrupts the healing process of wounds, inhibits immunity, increases mortality and the frequency of perioperative complications. Adequate artificial nutrition eliminates disorders caused by exhaustion. General information To maintain
