Build Your own Food Pyramid.
Introduction: Now the dinner party popular fashion is "eating less rice, eat more meat", or even "don't eat rice, just eat fried vegetables and meat." Completely away from a reasonable proportion to the dietary pyramid. Currently, urban people get up to 35 percent of their energy from fat, exceeding the 30 percent limit recommended by the world health organization. At the same time, calcium and other nutrients intake insufficient, iron deficiency anemia and other nutritional deficiencies are very serious problems.
The once-popular "high-protein, low-sugar diet" was once warned by the medical community that not eating carbohydrates at all was harmful to the body. Fat is the best source of energy, produces the least waste, but is the least accessible in the source and should not be eaten too much. Sugar is the easiest to get, and it produces intermediate waste products. Protein is moderately difficult to obtain, but it produces the most amount metabolic waste and is the worst source of energy. However, the body needs a variety of essential amino acids, so it is necessary to eat some protein-containing foods. So the traditional Chinese diet which composed of whole grains, rice, and vegetables fried by vegetable oil is the best source of energy.
✵Follow the better Pyramid:
Eat whole grains as staple food every day with quantity 400 to 500 grams, fruits and vegetables 300 to 400 grams, milk and beans 200 grams, and then choose a small amount of meat, eggs according to the individual body constitution. In general, white meat is better, such as chicken, duck, goose, rabbit, and fish, better eat less red meat, such as pork. Don't eat more than four eggs a week to avoid cholesterol overload. Also better control the use of oil and salt. However, milk is not suitable for everyone. Nowadays, milk in most cities is scarce and cold. Moreover, cow breeding is too much due to the excessive demand of milk market. In order to let us have a better living environment, we can replace milk with soy milk and congee, which are also rich in nutrition but less unpleasant reaction to people.
1.Balanced Nutrition: eat more rice, eat less meat, so the variety of vitamins and dietary fiber grain and vegetables could be our main food, to avoid "3 high 1 low" diet defects (high energy, high fat, high protein, low fiber) , so can lower the risks of cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia.
2.Cancer prevention: eating too much fat and animal protein and relatively little raw fiber is known as the "westernized diet." Colorectal cancer has become the first or second common visceral malignant tumor in Europe and the United States and other countries, the more developed the economy, the higher the incidence. The rate is higher in cities than in rural areas, and the rate in large cities is higher than in small and medium-sized cities, which is largely due to the westernized diet.
3. Avoid weight gaining: eating more rice doesn't make you fat. Instead, it gives you more energy and less waste. When you've eaten meat, high-protein food, high-fat foods, and you will realize how smelly they are, you can see how much of a burden they put on your body. Eating less rice, which represents a higher percentage of fat or protein, could put you at risk for heart disease or diabetes.
Studies have found that eating rice in large portions can help you lose weight. Rice makes less insulin secretion than other foods, so it's less likely to open the door to fat.
