The diet we are used to favors the appearance of chronic inflammation.
Compared to that of our grandparents, in fact, the common diet is made up of two thirds of foods which, in the long run, favor inflammatory processes and keep the body in an inflammatory state.
Sugars, refined flours, saturated and hydrogenated fats are now increasingly present in industrial foods together with large quantities of salt and chemical additives.
Among the pro-inflammatory factors, nutrition is one of the most important, but it is also the most easily controllable: all it would take is a little awareness of what we bring to the table and the desire to make some changes to our habits in the direction of healthier eating style.
Here are 5 practical tips for starting a new eating style:
- reduce industrial products
- prefer foods that are as fresh as possible
- consume more vegetables and fish
- reduce the consumption of carbohydrates, sugars and red meat
- replace refined flour products with wholemeal ones
As you can see, there are 5 simple tips that you can put into practice immediately.
Then there are also foods that act as "fire extinguishers":
- brown rice
- walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts
- extra virgin olive oil
- seeds and linseed oil
- turmeric and ginger
- Red fruits
I would like to draw your attention to brown rice.
Surely you will still be used to using refined rice but I don't know if you know that white rice rapidly raises blood sugar levels by inflaming it, unlike wholemeal rice which has the ability to inhibit the synthesis of eicosanoids, substances linked to inflammatory processes.
Even rice, like all other cereals, should be preferred whole grain because the complete grain, in addition to the health advantages, also promotes the disposal of toxins and the activity of free radicals, with inflammation-reducing benefits especially for the benefit of the gastrointestinal system.
Now all I have to do is ask you a question:
"How important is it for you to have optimal health?"
If you want to start an optimal diet I can help you with some products such as walnuts, brown rice, turmeric, etc.
