Eating is one of the greatest pleasures in life; however, doing it in a disorderly manner is one of the biggest culprits in hundreds of deaths worldwide throughout history.
Thousands of people, due to bad eating habits, develop diseases such as:
Cardiovascular and circulatory diseases
Osteoporosis (among others)
Fortunately, that "eat to death" thinking is changing by leaps and bounds. Eating healthy is the priority in many homes and with this, it is expected that the health of many people will improve significantly.
Study: Preventing Strokes Through a Special Diet
A study carried out by researchers from the University of East Anglia found that women who eat common foods in the Mediterranean diet are less at risk of stroke. However, despite the health benefits for women, the results are not the same for men.
But what is the Mediterranean diet?
The Mediterranean diet is the way in which the peoples of that part of the world have eaten for decades. It is not only about a specific consumption of food, but the way in which they are prepared.
Broadly speaking, this diet allows the consumption of small portions of the following foods
Whole wheat bread, couscous, rice, or pasta
Vegetables and legumes
Red, white, and fish meats
It is important to know that all these delicacies should be consumed in moderate portions and prepared with healthy fats (olive oil for example).
Other benefits of the Mediterranean diet
As if that were not enough, the Mediterranean diet helps the body of people who strictly follow it to prevent or reduce the chances of suffering from the following diseases:
In addition to that, it improves the quality of life because:
It prolongs the life of people over 65 who follow it
Reduce the consumption of chemicals in many foods
Increases the consumption of antioxidants and therefore the youth of the body is longer
Improves cognitive functions and with it your ability to learn and remember things increases
Indeed, "what kills us is what we eat"; Therefore, be careful not to take refuge in the excuse of "not having time" to turn to junk food.
I invite you to follow this diet and make your family become a fan of healthy eating.
