This distortion of reality also appears when you decide to change our eating habits, especially if the diet we adopt is to acquire a shape and not to give our bodies what needs to function properly.

Save yourself the query
Many of us know the famous food pyramid or a plate of good food (come on, come up in the box bread wrappers), and although surely this information was part of one of your classes, most do not take into account.
A proper diet is one that meets these points:
* That is complete, which means that you should always include foods from each of the three groups. A practical example is as follows: at breakfast you eat a serving of fruit, a glass of milk (the group of animal products and leguminous) and a slice of bread box, which corresponds to the group of cereals and tubers.
* Should be varied, so that if in the morning drank orange juice, it is preferable that you choose a banana afternoon and evening a bit of papaya.
* Should be sufficient, in other words, we must consume the total amount that your body should get. Everyone knows if you eat more or less than you need, and there is no need to go to an expert.
* Should prefer foods from cereals and fruits and vegetables, while reducing fat and refined flour.
* The diet should be free of germs.
This plan is recommended for the general population, but in the case of young people is advisable to consume more fruits and vegetables, “because they are in an age in which there is still growth and is necessary that the body receives more vitamins and inorganic nutrients. In the case of adolescent girls begin to menstruate and their need for vitamin C and iron grow. These elements are found naturally in fruits and vegetables, primarily. “
Calories and fad diets
Each population group has different needs of energy or calories. In the case of adolescents and youth, the average energy requirement is between 2.000 and 2.300 kcal per day.
“They would begin to talk about the problems which we face today, because we could divide the case into two main branches: Obesity as such, and eating disorders. The first is a disease characterized by excess body fat, which eventually facilitates the development of chronic degenerative diseases such as diabetes (excess blood sugar) and cardiovascular disease. “
The population in general and youth in particular, “believe there is magic food can be eaten in excess, and others that can be eliminated to lose weight and achieve an ideal figure. Finally, these diets are mostly very low in calories, are unbalanced and are not complete, i.e. not have the characteristics that have a regular regimen”.
People who do not eat properly, “lose water weight and muscle mass but not body fat. The weight is made up of several components: fat, water, muscle, bone and organs, and fat should have a certain percentage. “
Teens who do not eat properly, “lost a lot of water and muscle, but not fat as such, because their diet is unbalanced and do not eat fruit, vegetables or grains, that is, the body does not receive enough glucose, so it uses protein (muscle mass) to convert it into glucose. Fat, then it still retains, while lose minerals such as iron and alter the levels of hemoglobin (responsible for transporting oxygen in the blood). Obviously, problems may manifest anemia and malnutrition,”.
Disorders of anorexia and bulimia (repeated episodes of excessive food intake followed by vomiting or using laxatives) has risen, and now, contrary to what happened when they met the first cases, the problem has declined in the social scale, so young, middle-class and even medium-low, have been involved in this disorder.
Anorexia and bulimia have a psychic origin related to inattention in childhood, depression and low self-esteem, and manifests itself in destructive eating behaviors that can cause serious problems.
“Those who venture into this imbalance stop feeding, become less snacks, breakfast and not throw up. Repeat the table: lose muscle mass, but there are more problems with vomiting, and damage to the esophagus (there may be ulcers and bleeding, as with gastritis), and begin to experience problems of dehydration, vitamin deficiency , very dry skin, poor teeth and nails, in addition to hair loss. “
The impact on young people “may vary according to each person’s genetics and the time suffering from the disorder, but weight loss is very rapid. In the medium term there may be long-term anemia and other manifestations we have said, including the suspension of menstruation, which is a kind of defense of the body. “
