DIET MEANS CHOOSING WHAT IS SUITABLE FOR YOU
Stating that there is false information on social media and that it affects eating habits, Prof. Dr. Funda Elmacıoğlu, stating that the diet should not be started with the information obtained from social media, continues as follows:
REMOVE THE SCREEN, ENTER THE KITCHEN
Stating that unhealthy nutrition also causes chronic diseases, Elmacıoğlu said, “Let’s learn how to enter the kitchen. Instead of going to the screen for two hours a day and watching what Chef Ali Bey and Chef Veli Bey is cooking as a gastronom, let’s go into the kitchen and spend energy, eat healthy and appreciate the blessings we have. Let’s not try to relieve boredom with food. There is no end to nutrition, but every wrong diet we do will pave the way for the existence of chronic diseases in the future and will affect the person negatively. See, no medicine, no vitamin can replace food, nutrition. “Food does not create a feeling of satiety, the only thing that creates satiety is knowing your limits,” he says.
PAY ATTENTION TO THESE IN RAMADAN
Stating that Ramadan is an opportunity to rest the body, Elmacıoğlu mentions the things that need attention and says:
“Ramadan is the only month when the body is purified and the liver and organs rest. If you want a healthy body, you can rest your body by paying attention to what you eat at iftar and sahur. We usually recommend the pulp foods. Dietary recommendations are personal, but there are also points that everyone should pay attention to in general. I can list the following suggestions on this subject:
1. Consume whole wheat: Wheat unfortunately does not come naturally as bread from the mill or as other wheat products as it is harvested from the soil. It comes as a refined, refined carbohydrate. A refined carbohydrate model that causes cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, digestive system diseases, high blood pressure and weight, prevents consuming whole wheat bread and puts people at risk with white bread needs to be corrected.
2. Reduce the salt in the table: We will put the salt in the food of course because the body needs iodized salt. However, we have to remove the table. Let’s reduce the salt as much as possible and remove the salt shakers on our table.
3. Do not cook fatty fries often: Today, I see cardiologists and internal medicine specialists saying eat butter as a nutritional ignorance. The body also needs cholesterol. Let’s not be afraid of this. However, the best and cheapest source we can get this one is eggs. By using oils, frying potatoes, eggplant and zucchini every day at home, of course, you become a cholesterol patient. We will not do the oils often.
4. Consume the fruit in season: Vegetables and fruits will be consumed but in season. We should not say that fruit is sugar, it is poison. If we eat an apple, an orange and a tangerine 2-3 times a day, but without exaggeration, there will be no problem. We will know the amount, and maybe we will act a little more carefully so that people other than us consume these resources.
