Harmful advice from our mothers and grandmothers

“Eat breakfast yourself, share dinner with a friend, a dinner give the enemy”.

Studies of the 20th century showed that Breakfast should not be heavy. The “heavier” the meal should be on lunch. The optimal ratio of calorie meals: Breakfast – 30-35%, lunch — 40-45% and dinner — 25% of the daily diet.

Soups should be consumed daily. Otherwise You face a stomach ulcer.

A very controversial statement. Statistics have not yet been proven, the corresponding relationship. In other words, the usefulness of the daily consumption of soup, for the prevention of ulcers – is highly questionable.

Vegetables and fruits can be eaten as much as necessary.

Indeed, vegetables and fruits are useful. But not in any quantity. First, the excessive use of them can cause such unpleasant things as bloating, heartburn, diarrhea. And all of this is a consequence of the disruption of the digestive process.

Further, if we were to eat raw veggies and fruits, it is better to do before the main meal (on empty stomach) and not after it. Otherwise, the stomach will begin the process of fermentation. Which is a violation of the process of digestion, bloating, etc.

To exclude fats from the diet

The situation is very similar to paragraph 3. Fats are really harmful in large quantities. But in the small — they are needed. At least think about polyunsaturated fatty acids necessary for people , that contain fats.

Do not eat sweets before food, you’ll lose your appetite.

But the lack of appetite is a good thing. At least for those who are struggling with excess weight. And these people are now much more than those who suffer from dystrophy.

Tea, coffee, juice after a meal.

This is the most widespread bad habit. The fact that this fluid getting into the stomach together with food impedes digestion by reducing the concentration of gastric juice, but also increases the speed of movement of food through the “digestive tract”, which leads to the deterioration of digestibility of the latter.
