Sometimes people feel like their body is a mystery to them, and they don’t really know what to do with it or what is going on with it. Here is a nutrition guide to keep you healthy.
Around 130 grams of carbohydrates should be consumed each day. Carbohydrates are the body’s main source of energy. They also work to create an energy reserve in our bodies. This stored energy is called glycogen. The best foods to eat to get your carbohydrates are grains, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. You will also find carbohydrates in milk and milk products.
Consume 600-900 mg of garlic, about 1 fresh clove, daily to help lower your cholesterol. There have been many studies where people have used garlic for health reasons. These studies have proven garlic is extremely beneficial in helping to lower total cholesterol, and in particular, LDL (the bad cholesterol), and triglycerides.
Vitamin B12 is an important part of a healthy diet. It plays a role in releasing energy from the fat, carbohydrates, and protein that you eat. Vitamin B12 also helps in the formation of blood cells, nervous system maintenance, and bone metabolism. You can find this vitamin in dairy products, eggs, fish, meat, and poultry.
Make sure to eat the proper amount of fruits and vegetables a day. If you don’t like eating them whole, try different ways to eat them. For example, spinach can be eaten as dry leaves, in an omelet, in lasagna, and in many other meals. Try eating these healthy foods in a different way and you may find you eat more of them.
