1. WATER. Do not drink with food. It is better to drink water 30 minutes before a meal or at least 1-3 hours after a meal, otherwise the water will dilute the gastric juice and the food will not be fully absorbed.
2. Thorough chewing of food helps to improve the immune system, helps in weight loss, improves digestion. The chewing process stimulates the action of a certain type of immune cell - TH17 lymphocytes. These cells protect us from bacterial and fungal infections. If the process of chewing food takes twice as long as usual, then this allows you to control portions and naturally reduce calorie intake. It takes the brain about twenty minutes to send a signal of satiety to the stomach. People who eat food at a slow pace, feel full faster and ultimately consume ten percent fewer calories than those in a hurry to quickly deal with food. Want to be healthy - chew 40 times, want to be a long-liver - chew 100 times. It is important to chew food thoroughly!
3. Appetite. It often happens that we get up from a table with a full stomach and a feeling of self-discontent. The habit of eating unnatural food is the reason for overeating, such products do not satisfy the needs of the body and push it to search for the ingredients it needs, which leads to overeating, the second reason for overeating is the use of spices, seasonings, salt, sauces, sugar, which stimulate a sense of taste and contribute to overeating. It's hard not to overeat if food irritates the taste buds. The third reason for overeating is the memory of past hunger and the mental state of a person. At the same time, a person begins to eat, as it were, "for the future", for the future, all the while afraid to remain without food, or in a hurry to run away from problems. The fourth reason for overeating is the tradition of feasting, rooted in the family, the immediate environment of a person or society as a whole, leaving a feeling of festivity and pleasure in mind. Such traditions are dictated by the historical, economic, social, ethnic conditions of life and then passed from the older generation to the younger, becoming human habits. What happens in the body when overeating? The body experiences: overstrain in the functioning of all organs and systems; overload of the digestive organs and excretory organs; blood poisoning with unassimilated and non-isolated decay products; decrease in the physical, mental and spiritual potential of the individual. All this leads to premature wear of all organs and systems, diseases, old age and death. A person who consumes less food feels much better, more efficient, and able to live longer. Moderation in food is what is needed. But how to find her? In order not to transmit, a person needs to establish contact with his own body, to be able to listen to it. It is necessary to understand the difference between "Physiological and mental hunger." Physiological hunger is the body’s natural biological need for nutrients. Psychological hunger is the desire, through food, to cope with one's own emotions, whether positive or negative. With the satisfaction of physical hunger, we are waiting for satiation, psychological - calming. A person spends 80% of his vital energy on the digestion process. A man eats because he wants this psyche, not the body! The body has one single indicator and the signal of hunger is a slight physical weakness that cannot be triggered. The body strives to rest, so it is hungry. That's all, he has no more receptors for signaling hunger. Everything else is a purge: physical, mental or mental.

Separate food. Do not combine protein foods and carbohydrates in your diet at the same time. It is necessary to eat, sharing food in combination with a splitting medium. Acid and alkali neutralize each other. As little as possible to mix products at a time, do not turn out of your stomach and body - the "bin". Acidic products take away health, and alkaline products restore it. In short, all of our internal environments, except gastric juice, are alkaline, and it is vital for the body to maintain this balance. Alkaline is live and fresh products of plant origin, and acid ones are heat-treated and are products of animal origin. Try to include alkaline foods in your maxim diet, first of all, greens, vegetables and fruits. The more acidic your set of products, the more your body wears out and gets sick. Acid products include: meat, fish, poultry, milk, artificial sweet: jam, chocolate, cakes, sweets, flour products, alcohol, carbonated drinks, coffee, cocoa, black tea, vinegars, purchased sauces, mayonnaise. Alkaline products include: fresh herbs, fresh berries, raw vegetables, ripe fruits (and sour too!) But even initially alkaline products can become acidic when: heat treated, added sugar, honey (a strong preservative, the pH of honey usually ranges from 3, 6 to 4.2.) (Preserves, fruit drinks), adding salt and other preservatives (vinegars, sauces). Therefore, it is important to eat as many alkaline foods as possible with fresh, pristine form and as little acid as possible.
