Carbohydrates are a necessary part of the diet. They provide the energy, are an essential part of the immune system, are involved in the cells construction. But, if a person uses carbohydrates more than the body requires, it may lead to unpleasant consequences.
Problem: you had a great sleep all night, but suddenly get fatigue in the middle of the day, then you feel the lethargy, and want to lie down.
Nutritionists recommend: eat “good” carbohydrates for breakfast (oatmeal with berries and nuts, eggs with whole wheat toast, etc…). This will provide your organism with energy and a feeling of satiety for a long time. Lunch should consist of protein and carbohydrates (for example, rice, chicken and salad).
Problem: after delicacies the mood gets improved, but after a while the emptiness and incomprehensible sadness come.
Nutritionists recommend: simple carbohydrates can be the reason for mood swings. Replace them with the complex ones, containing fiber (vegetables, fruits, nuts).
Yearning for sweets
Problem: You can not imagine your life without goodies. It seems you have dependence on sweets.
Nutritionists recommend: sugar stimulates the production of substances in the brain, causing a feeling of happiness and reducing anxiety. Over time, the dependence might appear indeed. And the willpower can only help. Avoid the products containing sugar, and very soon sweets and cakes will not entice you that much.
Problem: just after a couple of hours after eating you are hungry again.
Nutritionists recommend: if you ignore the feeling of hunger now, with the next meal intake you will eat more than normal. The feeling of satiety can be provided by foods that are high in fiber and rich in proteins and fats (fish, meat and so on).
Your weight doesn’t decrease
Problem: you decrease your calories intake, go to the gym several times a week, but the scales arrow remains still.
Nutritionists recommend: do not count the calories in the product, but the number of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. If the products contain a lot of sugar, it means there is a lot of refined carbohydrates in food, which the body will absorb quickly and the excess will convert into fat.
The problem: acne, dry skin.
Nutritionists recommend: reduce the amount of sweets and see how the condition of your skin will improve.
Problem: you forget to take the keys when leaving home, do not remember important dates and events.
Nutritionists recommend: a large amount of simple carbohydrates in the diet can lead to a decrease in cognitive function. Omega-3 fatty acids (contained in a vegetable oil, avocado, fish) can protect the brain from harmful effects of sugar and improve memory.
