In recent years, people are increasingly thinking about a he althy lifestyle. The choice of food and drink, sports and all other activities. However, it turns out that there are a lot of myths and misconceptions in the sea of information that floods us
Also, new studies refute old ones about the benefit or harm of certain things. The popular doctor Alexander Myasnikov lifted the curtain on some of the delusions.
The doctor talks about the effect of red meat on the body and the need for exercise.
"For decades we have been saying that red meat is harmful, that the animal fats it contains provoke an increase in cholesterol, provoke atherosclerosis and increase the risks of heart attacks and strokes," the doctor points out.
He adds that, however, at the same time there have been studies that claim that the monofats contained in red meat are not so harmful.
He pointed out that the scientists reviewed all the previous studies and came to the conclusion that red meat cannot provoke the development of cardiovascular diseases. But this does not negate the fact that it can lead to the development of bowel cancer.
You should also pay attention to the fact that red meat is an invaluable source of vitamins and minerals, but you should consume it in moderation: "I have always said that three times a week a piece of meat can and should be eaten."
In addition, the doctor urges people not to blindly believe the stereotype that 10 thousand steps should be taken every day:
“Actually it's purely arbitrary, it's an approximate amount of physical activity. You don't like to walk - swim. You don't like to swim - run. Move around. The main thing is to move."
In addition, the expert advised people to move more and monitor their nutrition:
“And further. You want sausages - cook a piece of beef and eat. Because sausage has everything: sugar, fat, trans fat, soy. What's not there? Meat “.
