At Food and Diet we understand the need to keep variety in your menu regardless of your weight loss plan or lifestyle.
Diet food (or dietetic food) refers to any food or drink whose recipe has been altered in some way to make it part of a body modification diet. Although the usual intention is weight loss and change in body type, sometimes the intention is to aid in gaining weight or muscle as in bodybuilding supplements.
Probiotics are live microorganisms (in most cases, bacteria) that are similar to beneficial microorganisms found in the human gut. They are also called "friendly bacteria" or "good bacteria." Probiotics are available to consumers mainly in the form of dietary supplements and foods. They can be used as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
Weight loss, in the context of medicine, health or physical fitness, is a reduction of the total body mass, due to a mean loss of fluid, body fat or adipose tissue and/or lean mass, namely bone mineral deposits, muscle, tendon and other connective tissue. It can occur unintentionally due to an underlying disease or can arise from a conscious effort to improve an actual or perceived overweight or obese state.
Supplementation is taking in a macro or micronutrient through some other means than your regular diet. Many people supplement
vitamins and minerals because their poor dietary choices leave them with shortfalls in vital nutrition. Some athletes supplement protein to help recover from intense workouts. For the average person supplementation would not be necessary if they ate a well balance diet consisting of whole food products including lean meats, whole grains and healthy fats such as olive oil and avocado. Unfortunately in our fast paced American-drive through lifestyles, supplementation has become a necessity. Finding a supplement that comes in liquid form helps to ensure the greatest absorption in your cells. As a result, you want to avoid taking pills whenever possible. Look for a product that gives you all of the necessary vitamins and minerals as well as 5000 units of antioxidants to help slow down aging and fight cancer.
We are genetically programmed to eat until the sensation of "fullness" sets in—a complex response
involving blood sugar levels,brain chemicals, and other biological factors, aided by tiny "stretch receptors" in the stomach that signal the brain when its capacity has been reached. The human stomach is a pouch about the size of a clenched fist. Most people assume it to be larger, but normally it isn't. However, the stomach will stretch in size if we continually cram it with food. When this happens, the stomach requires ever-increasing amounts of food to trigger the stretch receptors that signal fullness.
