We are endlessly compelled to listen to what is healthy and unhealthy, and it seems that the advice is constantly changing. The 饮食ary advice offered by doctors a few decades ago would probably be seen as (quite literally) a recipe for disaster today, and perhaps today’s advice will fare no better with the passage of time.
Let’s face it – a lot of people are making big money out of publishing books about health, promoting 饮食s, selling ‘healthy’ foods (low fat, low sugar, low sodium, added omega-3, fortified with vitamins and iron, etc. etc.) Nothing wrong with making money, of course, but it does seem to be a bit of a bandwagon and we’re all too ready to jump right on.
Eat a balanced 饮食, containing a range of foods.
你不需要‘diet’ (in the sense of keeping to a very strict eating regime). 饮食require effort and anything that involves maintaining effort is usually going to fizzle out after the first flush of enthusiasm. This, of course, is why 饮食s usually fail. Before you know it, you’ll be back on the cookies, the chocolate bars, the ice cream and the Coke. And who is to say which 饮食 is best? There are so many, all claiming to be backed up by science, that just choosing one could lead you to have a minor nervous breakdown.
So forget about it, and instead just try to eat a variety of things. Try to eat fruit and vegetables every day. A salad for lunch (or with your lunch) is a good choice. A 饮食 rich in Mediterranean foods is easy to achieve and contains a range of healthy and delicious foods.
What you might try to do is put your 饮食 on autopilot. One good idea is to have a food planner – decide in advance what you’re going to have for breakfast, lunch and dinner on each day of the week, and stick to it. This way, you know you’re getting variety. And do build in some treats – I’m sure the odd chocolate bar and ice cream isn’t going to kill you.
对我来说，早餐是最重要的 难 一日三餐。我必须早起上班，所以早起做早餐的想法根本不吸引我。即便如此，早餐还是非常重要的-起床后大约十二个小时没有进食，所以如果您不进食，您的身体将开始“思考”食物变得越来越稀缺，需要节约能源。这将降低您的新陈代谢率并减少燃烧的卡路里数量。
Finally, try to keep in mind that food isn’t that important. There are much more important things in life, so keep food and 饮食 in perspective. If you worry about food, then you are making yourself feel bad, and your quality of life has fallen. Why do this to yourself? In the end, life is complex and unpredictable. We’ve all heard about health fanatics and marathon runners who drop dead in middle age, and guys who drink, smoke and party into advanced old age.
A healthy 饮食 does stack the odds is your favor, but there is a lot more going on which simply cannot be taken into account. So try to be sensible, be moderate and stop taking life so seriously.
