Esti ceea ce mananci, citate despre mancare si ganduri/You are what you eat, quotes about food and thoughts

Suntem oameni, supravietuim datorita mancarii, suntem nevoiti sa ne bazam pe aceasta ca pe un factor determinant al vietii noastre. Este foarte important sa stim sa ne alimentam corespunzator, cu hrana potrivita pentru nevoile organismului nostru.

Inca din copilarie gustam nutreturi, ce vin in diferite forme: in primii ani de viata suntem alimentati cu laptele matern ce apoi este substituit cu piure-uri, mancaruri moi diverse ca mai apoi sa trecem la mancarea obisnuita.

Ne sunt interzise dulciurile in cantitati mari si suntem incurajati sa consumam legume si fructe, mancaruri pe baza de carne, supe si asa mai departe.

Alimentele interzise sunt cele mai tentante si de foarte multe ori, sa recunoastem am cazut in plasa dulceturilor, mancand pe furis bomboane, deserturi ce ne-au crescut nivelul de zahar din sange si care ne-au modificat comportamentul vizibil.

Dar oare dupa procesul de crestere si maturizare renuntam la acest apetit? Raspunsurile difera si sunt vizibile in fiecare dintre noi, zilnic:

  • Sunt persoane care au dus mai departe aceasta pofta si au devenit experti in domeniu, bucatari renumiti;
  • Sunt persoane supraponderale ce nu isi pot controla apetitul nici in ziua de astazi si cad prada alimentelor din ce in ce mai aditivate;
  • La cealalta extrema se afla persoanele care au dorit sa scape de pofta mancarii si a kilogramelor in plus care au slabit extrem de mult, si considera mancarea un dusman feroce;
  • Exista persoanele a caror metabolism functioneaza in favoarea lor si oricat ar manca nu depun kg, bucurandu-se in continuare de varietatea alimentelor;
  • Exista persoane ca mine :-), care isi controleaza meniurile si variaza alimentele pentru un stil de viata sanatos si pentru a nu depune kilograme in plus.

Exemple sunt nenumarate, situatii sunt infinite. Ramane la alegerea noastra ce alimente adaugam in meniul zilnic si in care situatie dorim sa ne incadram. Important este sa alegem corect pentru a putea duce o viata linistita si sanatoasa alaturi de cei dragi.

English version

We are human, we survive because of food, we have to rely on it as a determining factor of our lives. It is very important to know how to feed ourselves properly with the right food for the needs of our body.

Since childhood, we have been eating foods that come in different forms: in the first years of our lives we are fed with breast milk, which is then replaced with purees, various soft foods, and then we switch to regular food.

We are banned from sweets in large quantities and we are encouraged to eat vegetables and fruits, meat based meals, soups and so on.

The forbidden foods are the most tempting and many times, to admit we fell into the jar, eating candies, desserts that raised our blood sugar levels and changed our behavior.

But after the process of growth and maturation we give up this appetite? The answers differ and are visible in each of us daily:

There are people who have carried on this lust and become experts in the field, renowned chefs;
They are overweight people who can not control their appetite even today and feed theirselves with more and more food;
At the other extreme there were people who wanted to get rid of the appetite and extra pounds that had lost too much, and consider food a fierce enemy;
There are people whose metabolism works in their favor, and as much as they eat, they do not deposit kilograms, still enjoying the variety of foods;
There are people like me :-), who controls their drops and ranges for a healthy lifestyle and no extra pounds.

Examples are countless, situations are infinite. It remains at our discretion what foods we add to the daily menu and where we want to fit. It is important to choose the right way to lead a peaceful and healthy life with your loved ones.

Finally, I want to share with you some quotes about eating / eating:

Cum sa combati gastrita? Manifestari si alimente permise

Buna ziua dragi cititori! Articolul de astazi va fi despre gastrita.

Din liceu am reusit sa fac gastrita cronica, probabil de la stilul in care mancam, haotic si din cauza alimentelor mai putin sanatoase, a carbohidratilor si a nenumaratelor chipsuri, sucuri cu acid ce pe vremea aia, pareau cool si delicioase.

Acum, privind inapoi la momentele petrecute in spital pentru tratarea acestei afectiuni si a medicamentatiei ample, a regimurilor pe care a trebuit sa le tin cu strictete, va spun din suflet si cu toata sinceritatea ca nu as mai consuma aceleasi alimente.

Problema este ca din cauza stresului si a alimentatiei haotice am readus gastrita, cu dureri cu tot inapoi la stadiul acut in care ma aflam acum 10 ani.

Ce este gastrita?

Gastrita se defineste ca inflamatia acuta sau cronica a mucoasei gastrice si este reprezentata de procese degenerative, alergice si metaplazice, ce pot conduce in multe cazuri la complicatii grave.

Pentru cei nu stiu, gastrita se manifesta prin:

  • Senzatii de arsura in partea superioara a stomacului, ce se rasfrange in sus inspre piept si poate provoca greata;
  • Dureri in capul pieptului, care apar uzual după mesele mai condimentate sau mai greu digerabile (mancaruri acre, prajeli, cafea, alcool, alimentele prea reci sau prea fierbinti) – senzatie de balonare, de satietate;
  • Varsaturi dupa mese copioase, uneori;
  • In special senzatii de arsura si presiune in epigastru (DEX: EPIGÁSTRU, epigastre, s. n. Partea superioară a abdomenului, cuprinsă între coaste și ombilic);
  • Reflux gastro-esofagian (cel putin la mine a fost prezent mereu), scaun de culoare inchisa;
  • Apetit scazut pentru anumite categorii de alimente (lactate, grasimi, carne);
  • Scadere in greutate;

In cazuri mai grave, gastrita poate fi precursoare pentru anemie, malnutritie si ulceratii.

Majoritatea gastritelor sunt produse de microbul Helycobacter Pylori ce populeaza stomacul. Daca in timp nu i se reduce activitatea acestui microorganism prin tratament corespunzator, persoanele afectate pot ajunge la ulcer duodenal si chiar la cancer gastric.

Tratament si mod de prevenire

Sfatul meu este ca inainte sa incepi sa tratezi o afectiune, indiferent de gravitate, este mai bine sa mergi la doctor. In urma unor analize si a unui consult de specialitate gastrita se poate tratata, insa daca incerci sa fii tu doctorul tau, fara prea multe cunostinte in domeniu si fara date exacte poti risca sa agravezi situatia si sa iti faci mai mult rau.

Pe langa tratamentul prescris de doctor, de obicei trebuie sa respecti o anumita dieta. Alimentele permise in dieta pentru combaterea gastritei sunt:

  1. Mamaliga. Da, poate suna ciudat, dar mamaliguta foarte bine fiarta si putin sarata face bine la stomac;
  2. Carnea slaba de pui, sau chiar de vita fara grasime este indicata;
  3. Branza dulce de vaci si urda;
  4. Pilafuri de orez cu legume (cele permise);
  5. Ouale doar fierte si moi, nu se admit prajeli;
  6. Legume. Aici nu exista o gama foarte variata de legume deoarece legumele crude nu fac bine stomacului; printre legumele permise enumar: dovlecel, cartof si morcov. Aceste legume trebuie consumate doar fierte.
  7. Fructe. Se permit fructele preparate termic, nu in stare cruda. A se evita citricele.
  8. Ceai. Ceaiurile care au efect cicatrizant si care refac straturile fine de protectie de pe peretii stomacului sunt: obligeana, coada soricelului, pelin si menta.
  9. Dulciuri. Dulciurile permise sunt: budinci, cheesecake, zahar cu moderatie si miere.

Este necesar sa se consume 3 mese pe zi, de preferat in absenta factorilor de stres; pentru a facilita digestia, alimentele trebuie mestecate foarte bine inainte de inghitire.

Alimentele interziste in dieta pentru combaterea gastritei:

  • Painea se interzice complet.
  • Carnea grasa, pielea de pui, carnea afumata, mezelurile, vinatul, conservele de carne, snitelul, micii, tocaturile si piftia, carnea de peste gras, pestele prajit sau marinat, precum si cel afumat sau conservat.
  • Brinzeturile fermentate, sarate sau conservate.
  • Ouale prajite.
  • Legumele tari si crude, cum ar fi ridichile, castravetii, varza, guliile, ceapa, conopida, usturoiul, muraturile.
  • Nucile, migdalele, alunele, fisticul, citrice.
  • Untura, slanina, margarina sarata, grasimile prajite, smintina acra, untul sarat sau seul.
  • Lichiorurile, romul, tuica, sifonul, apa minerala, siropurile, rachiul, cafeaua neagra.
  • Dulciurile nepermise sunt aluaturile dospite, inghetata, aluaturile calde, prajiturile cu fructe acre, gemul si dulceata. Este bine sa fie evitate acadelele.

Concluzii personale

In lumea aceasta suntem imbiati cu o sumedenie de alimente, un amalgam de gusturi si mirosuri, care de care mai delicioase si mai stimulante pentru apetit si organism.

De foarte multe ori, mass-media si reclamele televizate nu se refera la cele mai naturale si mai sanatoase produse alimentare, ci din contra. Mancarea de tip fast-food, chipsurile, sucurile puternic acidulate, precum si alte alimente nesanatoase nu ne sunt prieteni ci dusmani.

Ramane la alegerea noastra sa consumam alimente sanatoase, cu moderatie pentru o viata mai indelungata si sanatoasa.

Hello dear readers! Today’s article will be about gastritis.

From high school I managed to make chronic gastritis, probably from the style I ate, chaotic and because of the unhealthy foods, carbohydrates and countless chips, acid juices at that time, they all  looked cool and delicious.

Now, looking back at the moments spent in the hospital to treat this condition and the ample medication, of the regimes I had to keep strictly, I tell you from my heart and with all the sincerity that I would not eat the same food.

The problem is that because of stress and chaotic nutrition I brought back gastritis with pain all back to the acute stage in which I was 10 years ago.

What is gastritis?

Gastritis is defined as acute or chronic inflammation of the gastric mucosa and is represented by degenerative, allergic and metaplasic processes, which can in many cases lead to serious complications.

For those who do not know, gastritis is manifested by:

–  Burning sensations in the upper part of the stomach, which face up to the chest and may cause nausea;
Chest pains that usually occur after more spicy or hardly digestible meals (acres, fried foods, coffee, alcohol, too cold or too hot foods) – feeling bloated, satiety;
– 
Vomiting after copious meals, sometimes;
– 
In particular burning and pressure in the epigastrum (DEX: EPIGÁSTRU, epigastra, s. Abdomen, between the ribs and the navel);
Gastro-esophageal reflux (at least to me it has always been present), dark stool;
– 
Low appetite for certain categories of foods (dairy, fat, meat);
–  
Weight loss;

In more serious cases, gastritis can be a precursor for anemia, malnutrition and ulceration.

Most gastritis are produced by the Helycobacter Pylori microbe that inhabits the stomach. If over time the activity of this microorganism is not reduced by proper treatment, the affected person can reach duodenal ulcer and even gastric cancer.

Treatment and prevention

My advice is that before you start treating a condition, no matter how serious, it is better to go to a doctor. After some analysis and a specialist consultation, gastritis can be treated, but if you try to be your doctor without too much knowledge in the field and without accurate data, you can risk getting worse and worse.

Besides prescribing the doctor, you usually have to follow a certain diet.

The foods allowed in the diet to fight gastritis are:

Polenta. Yeah, maybe it sounds weird, but is it’s good boiled and a little salty is good for the stomach;
– fat free
chicken meat, or even fat-free beef is indicated;
Sweet cow’s cheese and urda;
Vegetable rice pilets (allowed);
Eggs are only boiled and soft, not fried;
Vegetables. There is not a wide range of vegetables here because the raw vegetables do not do well for the stomach; among the vegetables allowed: zucchini, potato and carrot. These vegetables should be consumed only cooked.
Fruit. Allowed with heat treatment, not raw. Avoid citrus fruit.
Teas that have a healing effect and restore the fine layers of protection from the stomach walls are: obligeana, quail, wormwood and mint.
Sweets. Sweets allowed are: puddings, cheesecake, moderate sugar and honey.

It is necessary to consume 3 meals a day, preferably in the absence of stressors; to facilitate digestion, foods should be chewed well before swallowing.

Prohibited foods in dieting for gastritis:

Bread is forbidden completely.
Fatty meat, chicken skin, smoked meat, sausage, wine, canned meat, snack, small, chopped and pickled, fishmeal, fried or marinated fish and smoked or canned fish.
Fermented, salted or preserved cheese.
Fresh eggs.
Hard and raw vegetables such as radishes, cucumbers, cabbage, sprouts, onions, cauliflower, garlic, pickles.
Nuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachio, citrus.
Salt, bacon, salted margarine, fried fats, sour cream, salted butter or chocolate.
Liqueur, rum, tuna, siphon, mineral water, syrups, spirits, black coffee.
Sweetened desserts are leavened doughs, ice cream, hot doughs, sour cherries, jam and jam. It is good to avoid lollipops.

Personal Conclusions

In this world we are immersed in a multitude of foods, an amalgam of tastes and smells that make it more delicious and more stimulating for appetite and body.

Often, media and television advertisements do not refer to the most natural and healthier food, but on the contrary. Fast-food, chips, strong acids, and other unhealthy foods are not our friends but our enemies.

It remains our choice to eat healthy foods in moderation for a longer, healthier life.
