Due to a number of recent research works the World Health Organization and other scientific centers have found out some negative effects of nutrition traditions on people's health. The results of the conducted research indicate the necessity of changing nutrition habits in order to increase people's resistance to various infections and diseases. Traditional dishes in most countries turn out to be too heavy especially for liver and pancreas. Existing modern technologies in cooking can be helpful in this case.
A lot of GPs give special cooking recommendations to their patients as a means of some diseases prophylaxis and treatment. It's generally recommended that food should be cooked by boiling, steaming or stewing. It can also be baked in foil, grilled or fried without any fat. Fats in frying are harmful; especially the use of adipose may be harmful for health. Fat intake should be limited. Adipose fats should be replaced by vegetable fats, when possible. On average it's necessary to get about 0.5 gr of fats (both vegetable and adipose) per kilo every day. Choosing vegetable fats give preference to unrefined types which contain useful phospholipids.
Fats: Why do we need them?
Recent nutrition research has shown that people keeping a diet tend to suffer from depression and stress. Besides, their mental faculties usually reduce by 20%. These are fats (about 50 grams a day) that can make you feel better and think better. They are digested quite longer than proteins and carbohydrates, which helps you feel satisfied longer. Strange as it may seem, but the lack of fats in your dietary intake can slow metabolism down and lead to extra kilos piling up. Fat intake is very important for vitamins assimilation. For example both vitamin D, responsible for healthy bones, and vitamin E, vital for heart, are liposoluble and can not be assimilated to the full extant without fats.
Everything is good in moderation, of course. One should remember that much fat is no good for the body. And don't forget that fats get to the body not only with butter and oil. There is much fat in such food as sausage, cheese, cakes and chocolate.
It's better to give preference to oil as butter contains not only fat but also much cholesterol harmful to our vessels
Don't try to get your daily vitamin A demand (that's about 4 tablespoons) with butter only. It's rich in calories and digested too easily, because it consists of tiny fat bolls that are assimilated up to 98.5%. It will obviously affect your figure.
So it's more reasonable to get about 20 grams of butter a day. The remaining portion of vitamin A daily demand you can get from fruit and vegetables, mainly from carrots, cabbage, spinach, lettuce, apricots and plums.
