Posted on

 (scoll down for english)
Η 12η Οκτωβρίου καθιερώθηκε ως «Παγκόσμια Ημέρα κατά της Αρθρίτιδας» το 1996, από τη Διεθνή Ένωση Ρευματολογίας και Αρθρίτιδας.
Αρθρίτιδα είναι η φλεγμονή των αρθρώσεων που εκδηλώνεται με πόνο, δυσκαμψία, οίδημα, ερυθρότητα, καθώς και περιορισμό της κινητικότητας σε μια ή περισσότερες αρθρώσεις».
Στατιστικά Στοιχεία:
 
103.000.000 άτομα στην Ευρώπη υποφέρουν από αρθρίτιδα και άλλες ρευματικές νόσους.
Το 14% του ελληνικού πληθυσμού (1.400.000 Έλληνες) επισκέπτονται το γιατρό τους με προβλήματα των αρθρώσεων, μια παθολογική κατάσταση που προκαλεί πόνο, απώλεια εργατοωρών, κακή ποιότητα ζωής, γρήγορη συνταξιοδότηση και εάν δεν αντιμετωπιστεί έγκαιρα σοβαρή αναπηρία στον πάσχοντα.
H αρθρίτιδα μπορεί να επηρεάσει άτομα κάθε ηλικίας. Eίναι πιο συχνή σε άτομα ηλικίας άνω των 55 ετών αν και ορισμένοι τύποι αρθρίτιδας μπορεί να επηρεάσουν και παιδιά.
Οι γυναίκες προσβάλλονται συχνότερα από αρθρίτιδα και συχνά παρουσιάζουν πιο σοβαρά συμπτώματα.

Good VS Bad nutrition (Vol.2)

Recently found that students, here in Greece, in the last year of high school are learning to feed themselves. Taught in general education in biology all the ingredients of foods and how they are metabolized in the body. Is condensed knowledge for anyone who really wants to learn how the human body works. Unfortunately, following investigations, when training begins for the human metabolism at the age of 17- 18 years (the graduates) is too late…

It is well established that the Eating Disorders start at most «tender» age between 12- 15 years. In this pre-adolescent and adolescent phase the person confused many emotions, hormones and stereotypes in body and soul. Disorders in food intake is one of the symptoms of this synchysis..Us,the adults we have to act as better standards for teenagers ..

It is quite important to know what a snack  between breakfast and lunch (eg. in school breaks) or between afternoon and dinner. How  can a teenager choose, when dad or mom buys cheese pies and croissants snacks at work? Continuing  the duel between Good VS Bad nutrition, I suggest the following:

Good nutrition :

All fruits and vegetables are welcome at every snack! To emphasize that the objective of the interim meal is to remain active and full of energy until the next main meal. If you want to sate a snack, maybe you need to forget and move on to a full meal. The combination with yogurt and fruit or with vegetables are full meal for our organization and excellent option for before or after the daily physical activity or manual work . In people with intense physical activity add honey or jam!

γιαούρτι 2

Starting from 50 calories for a moderate fruit and about 180 calories extra for a yogurt! But remember that is whole calories + nutrients + trace elements + vitamins and remains the level of insulin (hormone in the body) at constant levels for long time!

Bad nutrition

bread

I need to remind you that the homemade desserts are much better choice than any ‘sweet’ made of a factory, bakery, pastry shop. You will use fresh ingredients, but the calories and processed sugar will give you euphoria for 10 minutes, raising your serotonin  (a hormone in the body), but after going to «leave» you a craving for more sugar !!! Who stops in a cookie ;;!

Calories the yield is sufficiently greater than the fruits and vegetables, starting from approximately 150 calories 2 biscuits with nuts (40 grams) to 800 calories a piece galaktomboureko (traditional dessert) pastry !!!

It is a great challenge when you need to resist the taste, but for this reason is a duel !

Good VS Bad nutrition (Vol.1)

Wonder WomanSuppose I ask 100 people to tell me if they know what is good and what is bad in their diet. Of these approximately 80 will know in detail to answer my question. 15 of them may confuse carbohydrates with proteins present in food and the remaining five erotomenoi will laugh and you will avoid being judged by their response.

This simplistic process reflects contemporary reality. Most of us know what is good and bad in our diet !! The theory of the act, however, is polllaaaaa kilometers. Why; For starters will tell you that it is tiring to changing habits . If you start a balanced diet plan will need to change many practices in your everyday life: cooking, weighing less oil, more fish, less sugar, more vegetables, not drink with friends, away from delivery food and the list of changes goes on … Some are even more adventurous and seek to make «diet» and to quit smoking! Ep! Wait, one by one! How many changes can withstand body and your brain? !!

So, I know what is good diet and ultimately chose the poor. So simple. I and so many others and even consciously ( «leave it for later ..» will say ..).

For the next few days will begin a series of articles that will aim to «bridge» the gap between Good & Poor nutrition in the form of say dueling!  I will highlight the nutritional value of foods and not caloric efficiency thereof. My purpose is the quality of food! If this be understood then it is much easier to learn and the quantities that are enough in our diet!

BREAKFAST

Good nutrition :

ταχίνι με κακάο σε παξιμάδι ολ.άλεσης
Tahini with cacao in wholegrain nut!

It is a food of excellent nutritional value, with good biological value protein, beneficial fatty acids and essential for good health and balance of minerals and trace elements the body.

It is no coincidence, moreover, that in the Middle East is a key component of the daily diet, as used in the preparation of many dishes.

What you get with just one tablespoon tahini
Protein 2.55 g.
Total fat 8.06 g. (+ W3)
Carbohydrates 3.18 g.
Fiber 1.4 g.

  • It helps protect our body from oxidizing agents, responsible for a series of health problems such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and various cancers. Fights the formation of free radicals associated with aging of body cells.
  • Prevented by the components of the oxidation of fatty acids in the body, which is the first step and a major causative mechanism for generating atherosclerosis
  • Reduces cholesterol levels in the body
  • Because of lignans helps to regulate blood pressure
  • It is ideal for diabetics as it has a relatively low glycemic index

TD NUTS IS RICH IN:
● Vitamins complex B (vitamins that strengthen the nervous system ).
● starch (carbohydrate that breaks down slowly and steadily, fueling the body with energy).
● Fiber (valuable for bowel function).

[My breakfast, photo: 75g. wholemeal nut 24g. Tahini with Cocoa, Energy kcal 408 ]

Bad nutrition :

Τυρόπιτα από κατάστημα
Tiropita (cheese pie) from stores!

Would emphasize is that while the pies can be a healthy dish when produced as expected , unfortunately many of the prepared pies on the market and frozen pies sold in supermarkets and bakeries contain ingredients such as vegetable fats unknown origin (ie not oil ).

It contains trans fats, various cheeses irrelevant and not traditional Greek and additives, because these ingredients are cheaper, so the pie is not very healthy. Moreover the ready pastry, kourou and other types found in supermarkets contain various unknown vegetable oils (palm oil, etc.) and other additives.

Under the Greek Food Composition Tables of the University of Crete:

  • 100 g. a cheese pie with puff (a middle portion) give 423 calories and 29,3 mg cholesterol
  • 100 g. traditional cheese pie 380 calories and 31.6 mg cholesterol.

Rather, it is advisable to avoid white bread and common breakfast cereals, pies and sweets because they cause sharp rise in blood sugar levels and soon a feeling of hunger.

LECTURES defy you!
