The key to a successful diet depends on what we eat every day. What you eat is essential not only to build a healthy body but also to succeed in dieting and get a slim body. However, now that many diet foods are lined up, many people are wondering what kind of food is best to eat.
What Is The Diet?
Many people think of dieting as losing weight and losing weight, but the original meaning is a little different.
▼ What is the original diet?
The etymology of diet is said to be the Greek word diet, which means lifestyle and way of life, and it is said that diet has become a word that expresses how to eat every day. It came to have various meanings, and diet is translated as follows in Kenkyusha’s New English-Japanese Dictionary.
▼ The wrong diet will cause you to gain weight!
In Japan, where the image of diet = weight loss is fixed to many people, diet means dietary restrictions, and many people limit the types and amounts of food they eat. However, if such nutritional restrictions are taken one step wrong, they may cause malnutrition, poor physical condition, rebound, etc., and on the contrary, they may gain weight. Therefore, when you go on a diet, you need to do it the right way.
What Are The Effective Nutrients For Dieting?
The food contains a variety of nutrients. It is important to take in all the nutrients in a well-balanced manner, but there are nutrients that can be expected to have a dieting effect.
▼ Dietary fiber
Many people may think of dietary fiber as a measure against constipation, but dietary fiber has the function of cleaning the intestines and adjusting the intestinal environment. When the intestinal environment is in place, constipation will improve, and waste products in the body will be discharged properly, leading to weight loss.
The protein that is the body’s material tends to be deficient when dieting, but it is one of the nutrients that we want you to take in firmly. Insufficient protein can prevent new hair and skin from being created, which can lead to hair loss and rough skin. Therefore, it is necessary to take a good amount of protein, even during a diet, to build a healthy body.
Recently, “sugar-restricted diet” and “carbohydrate-free diet” have become popular, and some people may have the image that “diet = sugar is not good.” But that’s not the case. Carbohydrates are the nutrients we need to make the energy our bodies need faster than any other nutrient. Therefore, when sugar is restricted, the sugar accumulated in the liver is used, and there is a risk that the body will be upset due to the lack of sugar in the body.
However, not all sugars are acceptable. Choose good quality sugars such as brown sugar and honey while you are on a diet.
▼ Vitamins and minerals
There are various types of vitamins and minerals that support your diet. Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Calcium, and Magnesium have the function of burning fat. Vitamin B2, vitamin B6, calcium, zinc, and chromium have the function of preventing fat from accumulating in the body. Vitamin B2, Vitamin D, calcium, and magnesium have the function of building muscle. Vitamin E and iron have the function of improving blood flow. B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc work to relieve stress.
