Slender and healthy in the spring

Get rid of winter bacon ...

Those who are a bit "out of shape" during the winter months should refrain from feasting and eat a lot of vegetables and fruits in order to face the spring full of energy, physical fitness and less pounds. Klaudia Pütz, a certified dietician at the Society for Nutritional Medicine and Dietetics in Bad Aachen, Germany, says: "Low-calorie nutrition, exercise and relaxation are now on the daily agenda for many people in order to raise their body and mind."

... and gain health

The good news from the nutritional apostles: In order to slim down, must not be waived. On the contrary, it means: "eat full with vegetables, fruits, legumes and salad!" More plant-based foods should be added to the diet and the meat should only be consumed as a side dish two to three times a week, explains Pütz.

Complex fiber-rich carbohydrates, such as whole-grain bread, wholemeal pasta, whole-grain rice and jacket potatoes, contribute to satiety, provide vitamins and minerals and phytochemicals. They help to lose weight, strengthen the strained immune system and avoid the dreaded spring fatigue.

Fruits and vegetables full

Vegetables and fruits can be eaten as much as you like, 1000 grams per day, one portion or more with each meal. The easiest way to implement it, if you make it a rule to eat five servings daily of it. These include a vegetable juice or a muesli prepared with fruit juice.

Vegetables and lettuce do not stew unless vegetables are prepared with grease-dripping sauces or the salad is drowned in mayonnaise or oily dressings. All vegetables and fruits except avocado and olives are predominantly made of water and are also almost fat-free.

Better a banana

Bananas and grapes can also be eaten as part of a reduction diet. Although a banana has as much calories as a slice of mortadella, it is much better. With five bananas everyone is already full, after five slices of mortadella is merely the "appetite for more" excited.

Phytochemicals have numerous health benefits. They help to reduce the risk of cancer, inhibit the formation of free radicals, strengthen the immune system and provide protection against infections with viruses, bacteria and fungi. In addition to copious amounts of vegetables and fruits, it is now possible to resort to vegetable and fruit concentrates as a dietary supplement to recharge more health, Pütz concludes.
