LEMON DOESN’T MAKES YOU SLIMMER, BUT…

By: | Tags:

All of us would like to lose weight while drinking lemon juice. But no, lemon is not a miraculous medicine to get thinner. However, it helps to detox your liver. The organism frees toxins that the liver normally eliminates, but if there is a malfunction or it is tired, those toxins may enter the blood circulation and become even more toxic. Here is where lemon gets interesting: it stimulates gastric juices, allowing a better digestion, it enhances the good functioning of the gallbladder, helping to eliminate toxins, it slows down […]

WATER SUPPRESSES APPETITE

By: | Tags:

When the stomach senses that it is full, it sends signals to the brain to stop eating.

EAT AND HEAT

By: | Tags:

When heat comes we change our food habits. Fruits and vegetables at your discretion, 2 litres of water per day to avoid dehydration, and we must preserve the cold chain, meaning the whole process from conception, through storage, to food transportation, ensuring all refrigeration conditions and assuring its preservation. Appetite is less in Summer, but never skip a meal believing that will help you to get slimmer. When we skip a meal we usually compensate eating too much the next one. Furthermore, the organism remembers having been deprived, and reacts […]

SHELLFISH – SKIP THE HEAD

By: | Tags:

PARSLEY

By: | Tags:

Parsley is extremely rich in mineral salts, in vitamin C and in antioxidant carotenes. That’s the reason why, in the past, it was rather considered a medicinal plant.

A pinch of parsley (ca. 1 gram) does not give you much… So it is most convenient to use it as much as possible in salads, or to give more taste and beauty to your cookings, namely using it in cold soups that are ideal for this time of […]

SEAFOOD

By: | Tags:

Beach side holidays are the ideal place to make a feed cure. Seafood is an excellent source of proteins, much leaner than meat, they contain food fat acids that oppose to bad cholesterol, but also calcium, phosphorus, zinc, iode… so many minerals we rarely enough eat along the year! Oysters, for instance, are very rich in iron (excellent against anemia) and antioxidants that fight free radicals, thus preventing premature ageing. A nice dozen makes an extremely dietetic meal, as well as white fish such as grilled sardines, delicious and rich in Omega […]

GOOD AND BAD CHOLESTEROL

By: | Tags:

Total cholesterol levels are made up of three different types: High-density lipoprotein, or HDL, is considered “good” cholesterol. It makes up 20-30 percent of a person’s total cholesterol level; Low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, is considered “bad” cholesterol and makes up 60-70 percent of the total in the body; Finally, very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) is a precursor to LDL and makes up about 10-15 percent of a person’s total cholesterol. These percentages matter because when increases or decreases occur, they can affect the chances of a person developing heart disease. Many risks are associated with […]
