Cold season, cooked food and consistent caloric diet but low in vitamins and minerals for our health is a big challenge. Primarily, in winter season, the human body is exposed to abnormal and low temperature, which requires enhancement of calorie burn to maintain normal temperature of body.
Cold season brings low temperature, short days, an increase in appetite, which are perceived mentally as a tough period, which is why the body prepares to cope with. Most of the times, the change of seasons comes with emotional changes, whether or not the person is aware of this. As a result, the person begins to “indulge” to certain foods, particularly sweets, which gives a good feeling, but simultaneously enhances the fat deposition in the body. Moreover, the metabolism becomes slower, hence, at the same time there appears urge to eat more healthy as well as copious food.
During this period, people eat a lot of meat products which are rich in fat, salt, sugar and in the winter season there is less possibility of consuming fruit and vegetables. In today’s generation, we live in a heavily industrialized society, whereas, agriculture and food industries use large amounts of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, genetically modified organisms, that may “contaminate” food followed by accumulation of toxic substances in the body. The consequence in order to be reviewed the large number of overweight and obese in the number of people diagnosed with digestive and liver diseases. The diet balance during the cold season is maintained on the one hand, through the sources of vitamins from the food we eat every day, and on the other hand, the proper hydration of the body. Thus, the main foods of summer season like vegetables, fruits and salads have the same priority in the winter season but their number is tailored depending upon the availability in depending upon the season. In addition, healthy eating is mandatory, as the level of physical activity is much lower in winter unlike summer.
To avoid accumulating extra weight and keep our body healthy during winter season, the diet specific to cold season must be adapted to the body. In this period light soups are very beneficial. Cream soups containing a high content of salt, fatty meats which are usually consumed in large quantities in this season are not recommended. Instead of that, moderate quantity of liver based preparations, which are rich in protein, vitamins A, B3, B12, folic acid and iron can be consumed. It is recommended to eat beetroots due to their high content of iron, carotene and vitamins and provide detoxifying properties as well as help regulate blood pressure. Similarly parsnips, celery, leek, cabbage (white or red), radish (black or white) are also beneficial.
To ease the digestion, it is better to opt for kefir instead of yogurt. As major importance, regardless of the season is that the breakfast can be more consistent, the idea in this respect is a bowl of oatmeal or other whole grains with kefir. The use of seasonal fruits: pomelo, oranges, grapefruit, especially rich in antioxidants is equally beneficial. Even if it is cold outside, the body still needs moisture, hence, a proper intake of fluid should not be neglected. For a strong health, a purification of the body at least at the change of each season is required. Hundreds of years ago, the natural environment was not polluted and the man was not affected by a multitude of substances hazardous to health and the body did not need to be detoxified because the body used to have very efficient mechanisms of natural detoxification. Today, modern man requires a need of stimulation of natural detoxification mechanisms, because this is the only way to clean the body of toxins that make it sick and which are the main causes of medium and long term disease.
The most important organ of detoxification is the liver, but as a proportion, the most important detoxification system is the colon. Liver destroys viruses and microbes, neutralizes their toxins, inactivates and eliminates toxic substances (chemicals, drug metabolites, synthetic vitamins, food additives, heavy metals, etc), extracts and eliminates cellular wastes from the blood. Constipation, indigestion, dry skin or skin spots are the signs indicating that the liver needs support for detoxification processes. If the digestion is not done properly, the remaining undigested food reaches the colon, affecting its microflora and health. The health of colon influences many body systems and organs, including proper functioning of the immune system.
