Swiss Sciences Nutrition Advice

in Nutrition
The effects of processed food on our health will be covered here with some Swiss Sciences nutrition advice.

The diet of an organism can be defined as what that organism eats. Dietitians are health professionals who specialize in human nutrition. These people are trained to provide dietary advice and management. Swiss Sciences nutrition is one of the researchers of dietary advice and management.

Unprocessed Foods

Eating fresh, whole, unprocessed foods in a wide variety has been shown to be preferable to processed foods.

A study documented in National Geographic Magazine in 2005 attempts to determine why the people of certain population groups tend to live longer than others. In this article it mentions 3 distinct groups of people who live very long life spans while suffering just a fraction of the diseases that kill people throughout most of the world. In comes down to about three things these people tend to eat that are responsible for there long life spans and exceptional health. The Sardinians, the Okinawans, and the Adventists, eat low calorie diets that consist mainly of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

Whole plant foods slows your body's digestive processes. It will allow for better absorption of nutrients and will provide a balance of essential nutrients. This will result in better cell growth management, maintenance, and cell division. Lower blood sugar levels and a better regulation of your appetite will also result. Its also better to eat regularly scheduled meals instead of infrequent meals. Swiss Sciences nutrition advocates such an approach to nutrition.

Avoid Processed Foods

Human beings had been evolving as omnivorous hunter-gatherers over the past 250,000 years. For early humans, diet depended on their location and its climate. For people in more tropical regions, their diet tended to be based more heavily on plant foods. People in higher latitudes usually survived on a diet with more animal products.
The development of Agriculture occurred around 10,000 years ago. This development provided humans with grains such as wheat, rice, potatoes, corn, and staples such as bread and pasta. The development of a farming culture provided milk and dairy products, and greatly increased the availability of meats and vegetables.

This started to change around 200 years ago during the Industrial Revolution. New technologies that allow food to remain fresher for longer periods of time before spoiling were invented and the food processing industry was born. These new technologies have also changed the natural way food appears in nature.

One of the main processes used which allows food to stay fresh for longer periods of time is pasteurization. It also greatly alters the nutritional content of the food, though. The safety of many foods has been increased as a result of pasteurization and the possibility of bacterial infection has decreased, however, there are some bad consequences to this process.

Lifestyle diseases and diseases related to obesity are increasing throughout the world. The increasing application of these food processing technologies has been a great contributor to this development. Processed foods are cheaper to produce and much easier to store - they simply last longer. Nutrition related health problems have gone way up all around the world as an effect of these cheaper and longer lasting foods.

    I feel a lot of us are fat out there because of the food offered to us currently is processed. It's not necessary to diet - you'll just put the weight back on when you quit the diet plan and make it tougher for yourself next time. You can see our body is intended to keep ourselves alive. If we start diminishing the amount that we were formerly eating, your body is going to say "hey, hold on a sec - famine!" and change it's chemistry such that it may store extra fat whenever it can.

    I believe so many of us are fat out there because most of the food available to us nowadays is processed. It's not necessary to diet - you'll just put the weight back on when you quit the diet and make it harder for yourself the next time. You see our bodies are designed to keep ourselves alive.

    That is a very good approach to dieting - removing all unnatural food. A century ago relatively few people were overweight. Certainly part of the reasons for widespread obesity is the availability and low price of food lately but unnatural food with additives and sugar is a huge reason. Cutting them out all together requires some effort as just about everything in a jar, can, etc isn't really 100 % natural.

    Processed foods are mostly sugar minus the nutrients.

    Green tea herb contains high concentrations of catechin polyphenols. These compounds work with other chemicals to intensify quantities of fat oxidation and thermogenesis, where heat is created in your body by burning fuels including fat. Drinking Japanese green leaf tea regularly boosts your metabolic process and help shed extra pounds safely and naturally.

    Hi, I want to to ask if anyone knows of any reasons why I'm struggling to stay hydrated or rehydrate comfortably. there are some sides to this, firstly that i am an IBD sufferer and take various sorts of meds. secondly unless i drink with food, i feel a little bit like I'm forcing it down rather than naturally rehydrating. it feels like i am a bit liquidy inside and might reflux if i drink more. this might be my body system saying that there exists a problem and not to drink. with meals however I'm super thirsty, i feel a desire to glug a pint (which i don't). can this switch in drinking behavior mean anything to anyone. i did mention it to the gastro's nutritionist and she said it's actually not normal and that was all i managed to get. i really don't really drink fruit drinks, natural or otherwise because they are quite acidic, and i also normally avoid hot drinks due to gut sensitivity. bottled or filtered water doesn't make any difference to regular faucet water.

    I can't believe that herbal supplements can result in such successful weight loss. I was skeptical of how much weight could be lost with an all natural supplement, but I've lost 33 pounds on Vita Cleanse. I'm so thankful!!!!
