Man is what he eats!


In order to understand the mechanism of the development of obesity, and even more so outline the ways of treating this disease, it is necessary to understand the simplest "basics" of nutrition. What foods we eat daily, how they are transformed in our body and participate in the metabolism. The importance of the right combination of food is mentioned even in the famous source of Tibetan medicine "Chzhud-shi", about this written Avicena, William Howard Hay and many others.
I fully admit that you already have a general idea about this, but, as my experience shows, these knowledge are sometimes superficial and not always true. Obesity can not be cured without the help and support of the patient. Obesity can not be cured without active cooperation and understanding between the doctor and the patient. And if so, to achieve a good effect, it is simply necessary that you understand what you will do and why. A doctor can not walk along this road instead of you, he just can tell you the right way!
I would like you to think about how we live, what we eat, what the origin of our food products, their properties and composition. Only by introducing these basics can you build a new concept of changing your way of life so that each of you can be surprised and be pleased with the results. Therefore, if we miss this important topic, it will be more difficult for you to understand the whole mechanism of the development of this disease. Or, in scientific terms, pathogenesis.
All the foods that we consume are divided into two large groups - micro and macronutrients.
To micronutrients are vitamins and minerals that are in food in very small quantities. They are not sources of energy, but more recently, it has been revealed how great their role in the metabolism. They are directly involved in the assimilation of other nutrients and in the regulation of all vital functions of life and body development.
To macronutrients carry familiar to us pain proteins, fats and carbohydrates. They oxidize energy to perform all possible functions of the body, and also serve as a building material for various cellular structures.

All the food we eat falls into the digestive tract and is digested in it, that is, it is transformed to such a state that it can freely absorb and act with blood flow to needy organs and tissues. It is transformed in the digestive tract under the influence of many factors, the main of which are secretory activity of the glands of the stomach, intestines, pancreas, liver. That is, more simply, a piece of meat eaten by you can not suck in the blood and swim there in the form of small meat pieces. In the process of digestion under the action of enzymes, this same meat (protein of food) is split up to amino acids, fats to fatty acids and glycerin, and digestible carbohydrates to glucose, fructose and galactose. Then, in this form, they are absorbed into the blood. Moreover, water, pure glucose, fructose and some other substances are absorbed directly, without digestion.
I will say right away that you do not have to "hammer your head", remembering all these terms. I would gladly give up using them altogether, but then it will be quite a "children's" booklet where everything has to be explained literally on your fingers. The main thing that you need to understand is the mechanism. How food substances enter our body, and what happens to them. Knowledge of principles frees you from knowledge of facts!
Food is an indispensable source of energy, with its main suppliers being fats and carbohydrates, and with their insufficient consumption, proteins. When oxidizing 1 g of fat in the body, 9 kcal of energy is released, 1 g of carbohydrates - 4 kcal, 1 g of protein - 4 kcal. And with the simultaneous intake into the body at first to cover energy needs, carbohydrates are used and only then - fats and proteins. The human body is designed in such a way that it spends first carbohydrates, and fats, whenever possible, always tries to put it aside.

Man is what he eats!

  1. You eat what you eat

There is one more aspect of food toxicity. Standard diet of a modern man with a lot of refined cereals and sugars and processed foods
  2. WE ARE WHAT WE EAT
    The main source of chemical influence on our body is food, with which we enter into the closest contact. Food is important for any living organism, but people perceive it on a completely different level than any other organism. Our whole life revolves around food. We celebrate and mourn, absorbing food. Many people celebrate the most significant events of their lives at the table, in a circle
  3. What works - must eat
    Reserve reserves intended for use in fasting are assimilated with greater ease and less strain on the body compared to the consumption of food that passes through a difficult process of assimilation. Dr. Jennings explained: "The moment concerning the vessels of the lymphatic system deserves special attention and reminders. With some health problems, when the digestive apparatus is inferred
  4. At the moment I have a friend with whom we have been meeting for a year and I am ready to commit myself to maintaining relations with him on a long-term basis. But he says that he is not ready, that he is afraid to take upon himself the obligation.
    You say that we reap what we sow. Why is this happening to me, because I'm a type of woman who easily makes a commitment? Moreover, this happens to me not for the first time. And it was difficult for other people to commit themselves to me. You have to ask yourself the following question: What motivates me so much to want to commit? Maybe you are
  5. When I tell my husband frankly how I feel about some of his actions, he listens to me, and then calmly replies that no one has the right to interfere in his personal life, that he is what he is and can not change.
    He believes that I should not take everything so close to my heart and that I should take care of my own welfare. How can I be in this situation? Your husband, of course, is right in one thing: it's his personal life and he is not obliged to anyone, except himself, to report. On the other hand, I can not agree with his statement that he can not change. Everyone can change for the better if
  6. If you have something that hurts, it does not mean that you are a bad person.
    When you managed to create a mask not to suffer, it was a heroic act, a feat of self-love. This mask helped you survive and adapt to the family environment that you yourself chose before you incarnate. The real reason for our birth in a particular family or our attraction to people with the same trauma as ours is that from the very beginning we like it when others
  7. CHOICE IS ALWAYS OR ALL THAT YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT STERILIZATION, BUT WERE AFRAID OF ASKING
    Olga Korotonozhkina expert AB RUI, veterinarian The cat is very prolific. In 8 - 10 months she can already bring the first offspring. Two, three and even four times a year she is able to give birth to kittens, an average of five in each litter. A year later, the younger generation is also included in the procreation process. American scientists have calculated that one cat and all of its offspring in seven years can produce
  8. My sister has breast cancer, already there are metastases. She was treated by a sorceress, went to prayer sessions, etc. Currently she says that she is giving herself into the hands of GOD and gradually preparing for death. She has two children of nine and fifteen. What can I do as a sister?
    Your sister, apparently, has already made her choice. If she made a decision, it is important that you respect him. However, I see that you want to help her, because it is difficult for you to accept her death. It is important for you to clarify what you find difficult to accept. What do you experience in the shower? The next time you go to her, share her doubts with her, tell her that you have a hard time believing in
  9. I am a responsible person, and I believe that my burden is too heavy. What should I do not to feel guilty when I can not cope with all the tasks?
    Is not the heaviness that you feel the consequence of the fact that you have taken on too many obligations? Have you committed to yourself or to another person? Perhaps you feel responsible for the happiness of others? If the last assumption is most likely, then in this book you will find the true definition of responsibility. If you took too much
  10. Do you think that the philosophy of life that you preach is the best way to help spouses who have problems?
    How can you confirm this? I completely trust this philosophy of life, otherwise I would just not have allowed myself to preach it. I myself apply it in practice with my second husband for nine years now and rightly can say that I see positive results every day. Compared with the first marriage, which lasted fifteen years, the difference is enormous! Happiness, which I
  11. What happens to a person if he is guilty, but does not give himself a report and does not consider himself guilty? Will he be punished? Will he reap what he sowed?
    Laws apply to everyone regardless of whether we believe in them or not. For example, if someone drives a red light and tells the policeman that he does not know the law or that he does not believe in him, this jigit will still get a fine. The same is true of spiritual laws - the law of karma or the law of cause and effect. If a person knows that he is breaking the law, and yet consciously
  12. What is man?
    A person is a brightly colored energy system full of dynamic aspirations. Like any energy system, he always tries to come to rest. He has to do it. For this, energy is also used; its mysterious function is to restore one's own balance. A person is arranged in such a way that, at any internal or external event, sooner or later,
  13. What does a man need?
    At every moment, if there is no interference, a person is inclined to behave in such a way that, if possible, remove the strongest of his stresses, satisfying the most cherished of his desires. Every satisfied desire brings him closer to the goal - to a sense of peace and security, or to freedom from anxiety. Anxiety is a sign of tension; it decreases when the energy
  14. How should one behave with a sick person who uses his illness in order to evoke love for himself? I feel helpless, because I want to help this person, but he does not believe in anything.
    The previous answer extends to this question. Why does a person often feel the need to help others without thinking that it can harm another? A person who decides to help someone without thinking about what he can do, thinks only of himself. He needs someone's positive result to feel his own worth. Therefore, he
  15. My husband has a panic fear of being without money. And this despite the fact that he and I have a permanent job. What to do and what should he say?
    Have you already tried to just talk to him about what's bothering him? You asked him if he had any questions about this, did he think about it? Was his father afraid to stay without money? If so, what did your husband, as a child, feel when he saw this fear of his father? He condemned his father? When we condemn our parents, we eventually become like them. It would be good to give
  16. How to explain to the person you needed before, that now you can do without him, but that he does not feel rejected at the same time?
    First, you need to check whether this person really feels rejected, or you are afraid that he will feel rejected. This fear of rejection, perhaps, really exists only in your imagination. Just tell him that you thank him for all the help he has given you, but that now you feel strong enough to stand on your feet to get along
