Healthy Eating Tips
1, chew each bite at least twenty to thirty times, and put your fork down between bite. your saliva contains special enzymes call ptyalin and amylase, which digest carbohydrates. Let these enzymes do their work.
2. Use your molars to chew. Don’t use your canines to eat, as lions and tiger do. They have short digestive tracts and tremendous levels of hydrochloric acid to break down the meat. By contrast, you and i don’t produce enough hydrochloric acid to digest half-chewed meat, so it putrefies in the intestines.
3. Slow down and enjoy what you are eating. Rousing through meal causes hydrochloric acid to suppressed, making digestion difficult. It also encourages you to eat more than you should. It takes about twenty minutes for your hypothalamus, located in your brain, to tell you that you are full. Many people can shovel in thousands of calories before the hypothalamus finally registers enough
4.Don’t drink cold drinks with food. It dampens and dilutes hydrochloric acid, digestive juices, and enzymes. It’s similar to starting a campfire and then pouring water on it. However, a cup of hot organic tea may benefit digestion.
5. Eat the protein of your meal first since this stimulates glucagon, which will depress insulin secretion and cause the release of carbohydrates that have been stored in the liver and muscles, which will help prevent low blood sugar.
6. Limit your starches to only one serving per meal. Never eat bread, pasta, potatoes, corn, and different starches together at one meal. This elevates insulin levels. If you feel like having seconds, choose fruit, vegetables, and salad, not more starches.
And remember to exercise temperance. Dinner should not be the blowout meal of the day. I advise people to eat breakfast like king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper. Eat moderate portions and feast instead on conversation and laughter.
Generally your first deep breath toward the end of a meal is a sing that your body is satisfied and that you should stop eating. Continuing to eat after this deep breath regularly will eventually result in weight gain.
