Sugar, the carbohydrate: is it necessary to consume or avoid?

I begin by saying that carbohydrates are the natural and necessary energy that at the cellular level is required for our body to function. Without carbohydrates many functions such as the response of the immune system are not going to work properly.

When there are no carbohydrates because we decided to eliminate them completely from the diet, the body will convert fat or protein to carbohydrate and this process is not recommended especially when you have a disease such as cancer.

What you have to do is measure the amount of food that you are going to consume. You must weigh to know how many grams of food you are consuming. As an example of what we should do is serve a cereal. Most open the bag and serve the cereal on the plate and then add milk to it. Well that's not right. It is necessary to measure and follow the recommendations of measures that in the example of the cereal is a cup with a certain amount of milk. The label indicates up to the percentage of nutrients that you are going to eat and thus you will only be consuming what is recommended so as not to exceed the consumption of nutrients, including carbohydrates. You must weigh and measure everything you are going to eat during the day.

Finally, if we do not consume natural carbohydrates, many functions at the cell level will not occur and several production chains of other nutrients in our body will be interrupted. But also consuming more carbohydrates than required also causes the immune system to not react to the presence of an offending agent. I am writing about carbohydrates because they are the most harmful when consumed in excess, but the same happens with fats and proteins.

Do not forget that fruits and vegetables are harvested according to the time of the year and with this I end up recommending that you avoid consuming the same fruit 365 days, a variety of fruits and vegetables should be observed so that our body takes advantage of the nutrients of each fruit and vegetable at different times of the year. .

Being breakfast the food that for many organisms is the one that will give the energy to launch the body as with the other meals they were introduced by our mother and we just continue the habit to eat as we were taught. Not everyone should eat the same breakfast and apply to other foods. For a better orientation I recommend consulting with a Nutritionist.


This is what I usually eat for breakfast. 


Two scrambled eggs with fresh tomato spicy salsa and a spoon of pinto beans.






Glass of water, papaya with fresh lime juice and banana


















To finish my breakfast, I enjoy a cup of espresso sprinkled with a little of cinnamon.


Good day.

Do I have to take supplements or vitamins: which and how or why not?


Supplements, vitamins included, are all organic (chemical) substances that are mainly extracted from different sources of plant origin and are prepared as a liquid or a pill to take by mouth.

The preparations for administration by injection must be prescribed by a health professional.

From our diet we must obtain all the nutrients that our body needs daily to function. Consuming a supplement should be primarily to complement our diet and ensure that our body is receiving the recommended amounts of nutrients.

The absorption of nutrients by our digestive system is affected by some disease or by the type of diet we follow.

We know that we must stay hydrated to maintain the balance of our body.

Drinking a lot of water, more than what our body requires, which also varies according to the season of the year, state of health and activity, will dilute the nutrients and contribute to their elimination without being used properly.

Some diseases that affect kidney or liver function will modify the absorption and its consumption should be watched by your doctor, so that he recommends if you should take vitamins or supplements.

 

So, taking a vitamin with minerals as a supplement to your diet, Yes I am in favor of recommending it.

Taking a supplement or several in order to cure an illness should be evaluated by your doctor. Supplements are primarily for prevention. When there is a deficiency of a vitamin, it is accompanied by specific symptoms and the treatment is to correct the diet and replace the deficient vitamin.

Using supplements to treat cancer alone is not going to be enough to stop the disease.

 

There are many options and brands. If you decide to take a vitamin, you must consume one that you easily find in the city where you live.

I do not sell any product, the one I consume taking one capsule daily at the end of my breakfast, contains the following ingredients: Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Vitamin E, Niacinamide , Biotin, Folic Acid, Calcium Pantothenate, Ferrous Sulfate, Selenium, Molybdenum, Copper, Magnesium, Manganese, Zinc, Potassium, ginkgo biloba and Korean Ginseng. The local brand is BIOMETRIX ® BAYER.
