DIETS (IV)

FOODS RICH IN CHOLESTEROL

Egg yolk

Liver

Viscera

Seafood

Whole milk

Cream

Ice cream

Butter

 All fats contain 9 calories per gram.

 It is advisable that no more than 20% of the total daily calories derive from the fats and less than 8% of these should be saturated fats, 15% of these should be polyunsaturated.

 Cholesterol should not be exceed 250 mg. daily.

 After oxygen, water is the most important element for living.

 Close to 50% to 70% of the total body weight is made up from water and ¾ are found within the cells (intracellular liquid), the leftover water is found in the blood, in the lymph and in those liquids that surround the cells (extracellular liquid).

 The daily requirement of water is around 1 ml per calorie that we consume in our daily diet. This is to say that if we consume 2,000 calories daily then our requirement should be 2,000 ml or 2 liters.

 The liquids we drink supply us with a great amount of water, but food also supplies us with water.

 There is a great controversy as to whether water should be taken before, after or during meals. This is definitively of NO importance whatsoever as long as the basic requirements are fulfilled.

 Water loss comes mostly from the kidneys (urine), then from the skin (perspiration), from the lungs (respiration) and a minimal part from the intestines (evacuation).

 An adequate diet need not be difficult or boring. The basis of healthy nutrition is that it be complete, sufficient, balanced, nutritive, varied, pleasant to the eye, the smell and the taste.

 For it to be complete the daily meals must include all of the groups:

Fruits and vegetables

Tubercles

Leguminous

Cereals

Oleaginous

Meats

Fowl

Eggs

Fish

Sea food

Milk

Cheese

Yogurt

Liquid fats

Water

FOR IT TO BE SUFFICIENT:

 We have to eat the amount that makes us feels satisfied, it is advisable to drink water with the food and if a larger quantity is required we should try to eat more fruits and vegetables.
