- Therapeutic diets - we are what we eat
- Ulcers, gastritis, intestinal diseases
Useful properties of some foods and other harmful properties have long understood: everyone knows how useful for the health of the body as a whole fresh fruits and vegetables and how harmful, for example, a fatty roast pork. However, knowledge of the beneficial properties of foods not only helps to eat properly and maintain normal weight, but, in practice, prevent and treat many diseases. It is based on such knowledge are numerous therapeutic diets - diets that are tailored to all the "possible" and "impossible" for patients.
Food as medicine
Since ancient times, some foods served not only for cooking but also for the treatment of any disease - is it worth it to recall about the nutritional chicken soup that is as restorative and even drug was known centuries ago in many different countries. Moreover - the ancients knew about the impact on human health of different food products. The study of useful properties of different products has led to the development of a separate science - Nutrition: modern scholars dealing with medical supplies, were able to use the accumulated knowledge of several centuries to develop a whole range of different therapeutic diets.
What is the therapeutic diet
In a general sense of the word diet - it is a set of rules governing the use of human food
. The composition of the diet, its "menu" define a variety of factors - from the historical and cultural traditions (Asian and Mediterranean diet, for example, differ from each other slightly less than full it is due to completely different cultures) to the energy value of the individual products and their composition (ie the ratio of proteins, fats and carbohydrates in the diet)
. Therapeutic diets should not be confused with diets that are designed to normalize body weight - Therapeutic diets intended for a different purpose
. Therapeutic diet is not designed to lose weight and to improve the health of the patient
. Optimal therapeutic diet in each case increases the effectiveness of other treatments up to enhance the action of any drugs
. In addition, the importance of adhering to diet therapy is that a properly selected diet allows you to slow down, "slow down" the development of the disease, to prevent it becoming a chronic disease
. Finally, another very important property of each treatment diet - it is possible to use it as a kind of a preventive measure: a specific diet, developed taking into account the patient's condition, the specifics of the disease and the disturbances in the body, which it provoked, it helps to eliminate the risk of possible complications
. For example, poor diet in diabetes exacerbates the negative impact on the health of the body is constantly high blood sugar
Blood sugar - a very important indicator
, But compliance with therapeutic diet, which excludes from the diet of most sources of carbohydrates, helps prevent the severe consequences of the disease.
Special therapeutic diets designed for many different diseases. Among them:
- Obesity, diabetes
Diabetes - threatening and incurable disease
- Diseases of the cardiovascular system
- Nervous System Disorders
- Gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer
- Diseases and disorders of the gastrointestinal tract - gastritis
Gastritis - several stomach disorders
, Colitis, enteritis, chronic enterocolitis, constipation
Constipation - Watch out for food
- Liver disease, kidney disease, biliary tract
- Acute infectious diseases
It is important to remember that therapeutic diets - not a panacea
Therapeutic diets - this is a very important part of the overall therapy has a significant and sometimes decisive influence on the effectiveness of treatment. Failure to comply with the recommendations of a medical diet may not only harmful, but also really dangerous - especially in the case of diseases that are somehow linked to the food consumed by man. Ignoring the rules of medical diet can cause worsening of the disease, the acceleration of its development, reduce the effectiveness of other therapies. However, and as a panacea for medical diets regarded not: medicine and dietetics - the science is different, complement each other, and the correct diet should always be combined with traditional medicine to achieve optimal results in the treatment of disease.
New diet - fruits and vegetables as a base diet
September 6, 2009
Although rapid weight loss has invented hundreds of diets, new diet appear constantly. Some of them are exactly the popular expression "everything is new - is well forgotten old", while other new diet developed with the latest advances in medicine.
Diet ABS (original title - ABS Diet) - This diet is based on several major food categories, the first letters of the names which became the abbreviated name of the diet:
- A (Almonds) - almonds
Use almond: Fertility symbol of peace
- B (Beans) - legumes (beans, beans);
- S (Spinach) - spinach and other green vegetables;
- D (Dairy) - dairy products;
- I (Instant oatmeal) - porridge noodles;
- E (Eggs) - eggs;
- T (Turkey) - the turkey and other lean meats.
Diet ABS - perhaps the most gentle new diet for those who like to eat a lot: it provides for the use of food six times a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner and "snacks" two hours after each of the main meals)
. The idea of this diet is that each meal should be based on one or two products forming the basis of the ration of the above ABS and
. Most of these products contain little fat and helps build muscle mass, you naturally burn calories
. Of course, the mere use of food six times a day to get rid of fat will not help, so the diet includes ABS and twenty-minute strength training (exercises to develop muscle strength and muscle building) three or four times a week
. Initially, this diet was designed for women who dream as soon as possible to get a perfectly flat stomach, but it soon became clear that a diet ABS - a great way to lose weight quickly and even prevent a number of diseases of the heart
Diet, developed by American physician Ralph Felder, originally called very pretentious - «The Bonus Years Diet», or «Diet bonus years." The basis of this new diet - eating foods rich in antioxidants and the ability to increase the human lifespan. "Longevity Diet" requires use of the following products:
- Red wine: one hundred and fifty milliliters daily
- Dark chocolate: fifty or sixty grams daily
- Fresh raw vegetables and fruit, four servings daily
- Fish: three servings per week
- Garlic: one clove per day
- Nuts: fifty or sixty grams a day
All these foods are rich in antioxidants and bioflavonoids, reduces the risk of diseases of the cardiovascular system to seventy percent or more by lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The rest of the diet allows you to eat anything you want - and because it fits in the first place is not for those who need to lose weight quickly, but rather for those who like wine or chocolate, are concerned about heart health.
New diets are sometimes quite strict, and diet on tissue - just one of those strict diets
. The main advantage of the diet is that by following it, you can have for the first month to get rid of three or four extra kilos, then "burn" on a pound a week
. Diet tissue involves two steps: the first step is to "cut" the daily amount of calories consumed per thousand (not dropping below one thousand two hundred calories a day) for a month
. In the second phase of the diet is necessary to "rule out" five hundred calories
. Mandatory rule diet - eat at least thirty-five grams of fiber per day: fiber found in vegetables, fruits and whole grains, suppresses the appetite and makes it easier to suck longer avoid hunger
. The only big drawback of diet on tissue is that the sharp increase in the fiber content in the diet can lead to digestive disorders - diarrhea, constipation, bloating, flatulence
. To avoid these side effects, it is necessary, sitting on a diet, drink plenty of fluids, "authors" diet recommended to use the amount of liquid in liters, equal to one-thirtieth of the body weight in kilograms
. For example, if weight is sixty kilograms, then you need to drink at least two liters of fluid

Kim Protasov - this is obviously a pseudonym and who is behind it is unknown. But his diet is very well suited for summer. Calculated diet for five weeks.
The first two weeks are recommended raw vegetables in any amount in combination with fermented milk is not more than 5% - fat th
. There can be any amount
. In this diet should certainly be a limiter for raw vegetables
. Even those who tolerate them well, two months can completely disrupt the activity of the gastrointestinal tract
. The fact that the decomposition of certain types of roughage, a large amount of gases which can result in disrupting the natural intestinal microflora
. Therefore it is better to stick to the traditional recommendations related to the consumption of vegetables: steamed, stew or bake the eggplant, zucchini, cauliflower and other vegetables, which are usually processed and raw eat tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, cabbage (salads of the last two vegetables can also cause bloating, then they need to limit)
. All this can be seasoned with yogurt, yogurt, cream cheese, garlic
Garlic health: almost a panacea
Sprinkle with grated cheese. At night you can also eat one egg and three apples (preferably unsweetened green).
The next three weeks - the same amount of vegetables, but part of the fermented milk products is replaced by a piece of boiled meat or fish 200-300 g
Nothing normalizes activity of the gastrointestinal tract, as a combination of vegetables and dairy products, so on this diet not only can significantly lose weight, but also well regain their health.
Dropping the weight should not be an end in itself, the true goal - a recovery of the body.
