After industrial revolution, our life style and eating habits both changed drastically. Our calories requirement reduced but our fat and sugar intake increased because of mass production of everything including food items. This gave rise to obesity, diabetes and heart problems. All due to our eating habits. If you eat sugar that is more refined, sweets and high calories diet, you will become diabetic in few years. Similarly, if you will consume more fats (Oil, butter, animal fats, and meat) your cholesterol level will increase and it will block your arteries. You will suffer with coronary heart disease.
People fail to understand that our life style has changed
drastically in last hundred years. Most of the middle class and upper class
people need not to walk anymore. We do not indulge in heavy work too. However,
our calories intake, sugar intake and fat intake has increased considerably
compared to our daily activity. Due to which we faced many problem like obesity,
diabetes and heart problems. To avoid this problem, stop eating processes and
refined product, fried items, junk or fast food and red meat with high fat.
Also, stop drinking cold drinks, beers, wine and high-energy drinks. Replace
these things with healthy alternatives.
Instead of leaving everything together, adopt eating everything in
moderation. If you like to eat meat, eat one small piece (not more than 75 gm)
a day as it gives you protein which is essential for your body. Eat a balanced
diet. A balance diet must have protein, vitamins, carbohydrates and small
quantity of fat. Drink lots of water slowly in regular interval. Many dieticians
recommend eating small portion of meals five times a day rather big meals three
times a day. Keep some space empty in your stomach for proper digestion.
Several food products contains proteins.
However, not all Proteins are alike. Proteins are made up of amino acids. There
are around 20 amino acids found in our body. Amino acids are the building
blocks of protein. They are organic compounds containing an amino group (-NH2)
and a carboxy group (-COOH). As about twenty percent of the human body is made
up of protein, amino acids make up a large proportion of our cells, muscles,
Amino acids are integral to the biological
processes that happen within our bodies, such as giving cells their structure,
transporting and storing nutrients, as well as forming our organs, glands,
arteries and muscles. They’re also essential for healing wounds and repairing
tissue, especially in the muscles, skin, bones, and hair.
There are 23 proteinogenic (protein
building) amino acids in total, and over 100 natural amino acids, which are
non-proteinogenic. Of the proteinogenic amino acids, 9 are essential, 11 which
are nonessential, and 3 of which are not found in the human body.
Essential amino acids are not produced
naturally by the body, so they have to be obtained from the foods we eat. The 9
essential amino acids are:
Histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine,
methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.
Foods containing most of the above amino acids
meat, fish, Chicken, eggs, cheese, dairy, beans,
seeds, chia seeds, brazil nuts, oats, wheat, figs, whole grain rice, Peas,
beans, legumes, onions, and cacao.
Whey protein is one of the few sources that naturally contain
all 20 amino acids, making it a complete protein. Whey protein is a mixture of proteins isolated from whey, which is the
liquid part of milk that separates during cheese production.
Milk actually contains two main types of
protein: casein (80%) and whey (20%).
Whey is found in the watery portion of milk.
When cheese is produced, the fatty parts of the milk coagulate and the whey is
separated from it as a byproduct
