Carbohydrate healthy food


Carbohydrates are hidden in almost all the popular food – whether in pasta, rice or flour, many staple food consist to a large proportion of these. However, make carbohydrates in large quantities also thick, so write many nutrition experts also a low-carbohydrate diet before. However, as we feed is actually low in carbohydrates, but when so many foods contain these everyday? And this form of diet at all healthy?

Carbohydrates supply the brain with necessary energy, so these are certainly an important part of our diet. But beware: these sugar molecules can be present in three different forms and be more or less healthy.

What types of carbohydrates are there?

Not all carbohydrates are alike, on the contrary they are in their construction often very different and can be composed of three sugar molecules.

Simple sugars: consisting of only one type of sugar, eg Fructose, glucose

Disugar: built by two sugar molecules, eg Milk and milk products

Multiple sugar: composed of several different types of simple sugars, such as Vegetable and cereal products

What carbohydrates are healthy/unhealthy?

Foods contain multiple sugar instead of single or double sugars, are to be preferred in the choice of foods. For example, the starch in potatoes ( complex sugars ) must be cleaved only to simple sugars and thus increases only moderately blood sugar levels, which is noticeably healthier and more figure- conscious.

Carbohydrate diet

Do you want to eat low carb, you’d better give up the following foods: potatoes, pasta, rice or white bread. These allow the blood sugar levels rise rapidly and thus cause an increase in weight, especially single and double sugars have these negative effects. Therefore it is recommended to reduce the supply and increase the use of protein or healthy fats which. Thus, for example, should cut back on the consumption of rice, pasta, etc. and take increasingly vegetables, meat, asparagus, etc. to him.

A low carbohydrate diet or low carb diet called, also provides for an increased intake of healthy fats, as they are responsible for important hormones and vitamins A, D, E and K. Build more as fish, nuts, olive or canola oil and avocados into your everyday life.

Helping students improve their diet

Introduction: This proposal aims to provide several recommendations for helping students improve their diet.

The need for information: There is no emphasis on health and regular eating at the college. Firstly, considering the fact that students do not know what is good for their well-being, I suggest we could organize an event entirely dedicated to presenting in formation about food and the right way of eating. Moreover, it would also be advisable to invite health professionals, dieticians and graduate students. As a consequence, every student who has any questions could feel free to ask people that have gained experience throughout the years and could be given credible advice.

On-site facilities: Secondly, students finds the healthy food in the student coffee bars both boring and low-quality. Therefore, I recommend considering the idea of a canteen, specially for students in order to provide them with fresh, tasteful and appetizing meals. For example, the old and useless sports center could easily be converted into a great and spacious place for eating. Taking in account this project would need funding that we urgently need to make a plan for, so that it could be presented to the community of the college as well as to our sponsors without whom its realization will not be possible.

Cookery skills: Thirdly, considering the fact that students show interest in becoming better cooks, I suppose we could organize a short course in cookery skills. Not only will it give them the opportunity to gain some new knowledge in preparing delicious and healthy menus, but also as a result – they will be taught to be more independent and will be able to pay more attention to what they are consuming. Furthermore, cooking is a necessity and it will always make good use in the students’ future lives.

Conclusion: There should be no delay in organizing the provision of information to students. It is also vital to decide whether a new canteen will be built or not, and finally – it is advisable to start planning on the cooking course.
