Women: Healthy Eating (Part 1)


You need to eat a varied diet that includes all the different food types. They recommend that you cut down on sugar, refined foods, and animal fats, replacing them with more fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grain cereals, and unsaturated fats.

Buying and Preparing Your Food:

• Always choose ingredients that look and smell fresh
• Fruit and vegetables should not be wilted or discolored. Cracked or wilted vegetable leaves indicate a mineral deficiency in the plant: avoid them as they will not provide you with the necessary minerals.
• Cut down on red meat, eat white meat and fish instead
• Choose brown rice, whole wheat bread, whole wheat flour, and whole wheat pasta in preference to their white equivalents
• Whenever possible, eat fruit and vegetables raw
• If you boil vegetables, a lot of the vitamins will be destroyed. Some of the vitamins will pass into the cooking liquid, so keep it to use as stock.
• Try to eat at least one salad a day
• Steam fish instead of deep frying
• Cook foods without adding far wherever possible. For example: boil, bake, steam, or grill instead of frying
• Replace foods high in fat with a low-fat alternative, e.g. use plain yogurt instead of cream

Vegetarianism:

A properly planned vegetarian diet is high in fiber and low in saturated fats. In order to be sure of getting all the essential amino acids they need, vegetarians must plan their meals carefully, mixing incomplete proteins with carbohydrates to give the necessary balance. Vegetarians and vegans include a lot of seeds – sesame, sunflower, pumpkin, etc. – in their diet, as these are high in minerals, vitamins, and protein.

Additives:

Whether or not you eat a certain food depends to a large extent on its eye appeal. Many manufacturers’ use additives – emulsifiers, stabilizers, artificial colorings, flavorings, preservatives, and so on – to give processed foods eye appeal. No one as yet knows the long term effects of these additives on our health, but there is some evidence that links them to allergies, hyperactivity in children, and similar problems. Some countries have banned some additives altogether, although they are still permitted in other parts of the world. No additives are necessary in a healthy diet, so you will not come to any harm by omitting them entirely from your diet.

Caffeine:

Coffee, tea, cocoa, and certain soft drinks all contain the drug caffeine. It is stimulant, and in excess can cause restlessness, sleeplessness, and palpitations. It is also a diuretic – it increases the flow of urine from the kidneys. Some people become emotionally dependent on caffeine. Experts recommend that we limit our caffeine intake and that we drink fewer than five cups of coffee a day (or their equivalent in other caffeine drinks). Try changing to decaffeinated coffee or a cereal based coffee substitute, or choose from a wide range of herbal teas.
