People whose body has accelerated metabolism, respectively “burn” faster energy. Scientists say this is due to a higher level of adrenaline and thyroid hormones in the body.

Other factors that lower energy are: dehydration, overeating, irregular meals, caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, stress and sleepless. Our body needs foods that accelerate metabolism and maintain steady, as blood sugar and energy. By adding a full sleep and increased physical activity, you will immediately regain its vitality. At the beginning fitness will make you tired, but will gradually start to feel more energetic because of the flow of endorphins which are released from the body during exercise. Although energy is obtained also from proteins and fats, the majority coming from carbohydrates. They are more easily converted into glucose – the fuel used for energy. But no sense just to increase carbohydrates to increase your energy, as this will affect blood sugar levels. Eat at regular intervals, combining protein with carbohydrates and fats at every meal. This will maintain stable blood sugar by slowing the digestive process, will allow your body to “burn” carbohydrates as fuel and to procure the necessary substances from other foods. The pace at which carbohydrate foods release glucose in blood is measured by glycemic index (GI) and influences the level of energy. Glycemic index classification of foods high hydrate from 0 to 100. The higher is the GI, the faster your blood sugar rises. Foods with low GI (cereals – brown rice, oats, rye, whole grains, legumes, yogurt, raw fruits and vegetables) released its sugars more slowly and have to draw a large part of our diet. With high GI foods are low in fiber, processed sugar products, which consist of highly digestible sugars – candy, chocolate, biscuits, honey, sweetened cornflakes, dried fruit, white bread and white rice.

FoodFood is a major source of energy for the body. In periods of high load are needed such food products that help a person feel more cheerful and lift his mood. Moreover, chronic fatigue and stress weaken the immune system and makes the body more susceptible to disease.
When it comes to diet employed people, professionals usually emanate from the maxim as less time is devoted to feeding, more must be carefully selected food. What’s good and what is unacceptable to you? Indeed, you yourselves know very well because the body is the best advisor.

Some healthy foods

Monday, September 7th, 2009

Health FoodLast week, independently of one another, two popular media have published a list of the most useful health foods. Proposals by British newspaper the Daily Mirror and the German magazine “Focus” in a whole match – that modern man has to use more milk and garlic. Here are the contents of both publications, which we tried to combine in one:
1. Brown rice
Fearing not napalneyat, many people avoid carbohydrates. But actually they are very important for maintaining energy levels. Brown rice contains many fibers that help reduce cholesterol levels and risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer of the rectum, gall stones, diabetes and obesity.
2. Eggs
Responses to hen eggs are often not the most flattering, but they are a rich source of protein and lutein (which protects eyes from cataracts). Studies also show that eggs prevent blood clots and thus reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. According to the results of a completely new study using 6 eggs per week reduced by up to 14 percent risk of breast cancer. The use of 1-2 eggs daily does not raise cholesterol as the body itself produces cholesterol from saturated fat, but did not receive “-made” in cholesterol-rich products.
