In our time, probably, there was no man or woman who did not know about the harm of fatty foods. Nevertheless, most people continue to consume fatty meat – pork, beef, lamb, fried foods. In the question of how to reduce harm from fatty foods, the main thing is to know the list of foods that are good at breaking down fats.
When consuming fatty foods, human blood triglycerides, which consist of simple fatty acids, sharply increase, and with frequent ingestion increase the risk of developing serious heart and other organs’ diseases.
Scientists have found that some spices and condiments can significantly reduce the harm caused by fatty foods. Turmeric and cinnamon, as well as paprika, black and red pepper normalize the metabolism, remove excess liquid from the body together with toxins, help break down the fats that come with food, and prevent the deposition of cholesterol plaques in the vessels. For example, turmeric contains a very powerful antioxidant – polyphenol curcumin, which provides such an effect.
Polyphenols are found in all fruits and vegetables; these vegetable antioxidants are also found in large quantities in cocoa and coffee, sprouted grain and some cereals, tea. Daily consumption of these substances with food can significantly accelerate fat metabolism, resulting in the ingestion and absorption of harmful fat derivatives into the blood.
The leader in the content of polyphenols is red grapes and dry red wine. Drinking just 1 tablespoon of wine at the same time as consuming fatty meat, you can significantly reduce the harm to the cardiovascular and other body systems.
The surest way to reduce the negative impact of fatty foods on the body is the consumption of a large number of vegetables and fruits. The most useful element contained in fruits is pectin. Eating only 300-350 grams of useful fruits a day – apples, citrus fruits, grapes, bananas, pears – you can reduce cholesterol deposits by 8 percent in 2 months. This is a very significant indicator, since such a decrease greatly reduces the likelihood of a heart attack. Also vitamins are able to reduce the negative effect of fat. Vitamins contained in fruits in sufficient quantities, especially vitamin C, which increases the level of useful cholesterol and reduces the harmful effect.
Vitamin E is recommended by specialists to all lovers of fatty foods, and nicotinic acid, or niacin, can normalize the state of the cardiovascular system even among avid pork lovers.
If after taking fatty foods, you drink only 1 glass of fresh fruit juice, the harm from such food will decrease. Vegetables act approximately the same way; not without reason, nutritionists recommend to the meat food to serve a side dish of tomatoes, cucumbers, white cabbage, broccoli, turnips, beets, as well as greens – spinach, parsley, lettuce, basil.
With frequent consumption of fatty foods, it is recommended to eat 1-2 tablespoons of bran per day, especially oatmeal. Bran is rich in vegetable fiber, which helps remove harmful substances, toxins, and also part of the cholesterol that comes with food from the body.
Doctors say that the best way to reduce the harm of fatty foods is exercising. Physical training significantly reduces the level of harmful cholesterol in the blood, besides, it contributes to the splitting of fatty deposits. Pay attention: even such tablets as Kamagra, Levitra and their analogues act worse if you ate something fatty before using them.
Scientists have proven that the human body in a state of rest and good mood can partially neutralize the harm of fatty foods by means of releasing happiness hormones in the blood, while stress hormones, on the contrary, aggravate the situation.
