about the diet in this season(any useful advice are welcome)

Postby yaojun1984 » Fri Apr 01, 2005 11:32 am

This season,between the transition from spring to summer,do you have any useful or interested pieces of advice about the diet.
According to my observation,boys and girls are very different on the diet.And many girls eat a little at the dinner but after the dinner they will eat much fruit such as apples,oranges,pineapple,strawberryand so on.I don't pay attention to my diet and now,unfortunately,I have a bad appetite.I want to know how to keep a healthy diet.


Everyone will be welcome to give advice.

As use, I advice fruits and vegetables, water ! (for men and women)

but when it is warm (especially in summer), I observed that I eat not as much as usually.

Eat some all, especially fruits and vegetables, water, especially what you like eating.

Don't forget sport !

Don't be so difficult with your eating. What is your aim ? your goal ? of the diet ? aren't you in good health now ?

Thank you!In fact, I know that water is very importent to the health,but I never drink tea,and when I am thirsty I always eat fruiuts or drink beverage instead of drinking water. But until now I haven't find that something wrong with my health.I hope that I will get out of this habit afterwards.
I am a college girl, and like every other girls I want to keep slender.But now I have a good appetite,and I eat more than before and additionally I eat a lot of fruit because of thirsty and I am now very worried about my health.I don't know how to arrange my diet.

Why slender ? why is there this ideal ? being slender is not necessary for being in good health.

Being slender is not bad, but being too slender can be bad.

Enjoy your appetite ! :mrgreen:

Drink water and some fruit juices and fruits. [Personnally I don't prefer natural fruits than fruit juices.] One good thing of water is that water does not make you addicted to any drink. There is no sugar, no alcohol in water. And sincerely, water is my favorite drink. It is the drink that chills me better.

Don't drink charged drinks (and meals) before sleeping, before bad sleeping. Water and vegetables pie, for example.

Yes, take an apple and a water bottle at classes or at work !

Make some breaks during studying/working ! smile ! :mrgreen:

Do you see the link between health, nutrition and time managing ? ;)

Shokin and Violent,Your advice is very precious.And I decide to take it to practice.But the problem is that I find that one person's bad habit is very difficult to overcome.Is there some other ways to instead of water.And I don't like sports because I have many other interested interested things to do.As to slender,I belong to the thin.So,I'm sometimes not care about this facet but only to worry about.Perhaps I am now not conscious of the importance of health.

Sometimes I think about that why morden people look the appearance so important.I would prefer to live as my willness and not to take others'view to consideration,as shokin's opinion.But I think the world has it's own tendency.We must pay attention to others' view and I think keeping slender has many benifits and it can avoid from some diseases.Therefore,I will also displine myself sometimes.

I know many people don't like sports, for various reasons. Nevertheless, you can achieve good results for your health in other ways: for example, everybody likes to walk in nice places like a park, or in the country... you can simply do that, just walking a litte faster than usual. Half an hour of fast walking a day (you don't need to run) can give effective results, even if this is not really a sport!
And by the way, try to avoid fruit beverages of industrial origin: they are always surcharged with sugar, that in turn have a subtle but massive effect on your weight!

I think walking is a very good way for me to keep healthy.And I like walking from a small child.But I find that now if I am along by myself,I will not go anywhere outside.I even feel ashamed.However,I am going to overcome all difficulties to keep me healthy.

Right, saying is always easier than doing. So i think we must have willness to reach to the aim. I've never cared to my health before, i've never known what sport is.... the result is i've ever spent a lots time and money for my health :(
Sport is the best solution to be good health. Water, fruit, vegetable and sport are the most necessarry materials to build the house of healthy :D :twisted:
My sport is swimming, very useful for me ;)

A friend of mine had followed a very simple diet, but I am not sure if it is healthy or not.
She never eat anything after 7p.m. she lost 11Kg in 2 months

I Think the ideal advice about diet is to eat of everything and little. If all kind the food is bad thre is no problem because you ate little and if everything is good so better because you ate of everything.

For ideal health in human or animal one must not only eat heathily but also exercise. This includes weight resistance training for humans if you don't work in heavey manual labour. Weight training is the only way keep your muscles in top shape and strengthen your bones. This is because weight training adds density to bones. Muscle was designed to be used. Also the more muscle you have the higher your matabolism. This will burn fat. Aerobic training will only raise your metabolism for a few hours. Bone density is especially important for women because they are so susceptable to osteoporosis.
A slender shape is the ideal. Fat can be a burden on the heart and shortens lifespan. It is best not to eat a lot of fruit before sleep because of the sugars. Also keep your meals small. No more that 700 calories at one time. It is OK ( or better) to eat 4 or 5 times a day as long as you keep the calories low.

There was a dietician on Oprah the other day and this was his suggestion:

Eat a healthy breakfast including a piece of fruit or fruit juice.

Have a balanced lunch (pretty much whatever you want; but in moderation).

A smaller dinner. But here is the trick you have to have your dinner early (no later than 6pm).

YOU CAN'T EAT ANYTHING AT ALL AFTER 6pm.

Have a half hour walk everyday.

I understand not eating after 6pm as your body pretty much shuts down as you relax/sleep. You dont' burn enough calories to compensate for a big meal.

8) 8) 8) :D
