Is maintaining a healthy diet in Dubai difficult?
Many men and women in Dubai have difficulty in losing weight and maintaining a proper diet. One reason is the availability and affordability of unhealthy food more than healthy food.
The best thing is to start with the basic knowledge of nutrition. Getting your fundamentals right would help you to choose healthy food for yourself. Understanding the macro-nutrients which are the fats, carbs, proteins with their roles in weight management would be the initial stage. Looking at how energy is distributed by the macro-nutrients and lose calories by working out. A personal trainer in Dubai will provide basic knowledge about nutrition, health and fitness. To avoid yo-yo dieting, one must be aware of the fundamentals.
People classify their nutrition into food items, subjective labels and in isolation from the rest of their diet.
Its rare people pick something up and consider the nutrients and calories that it actually contains. Understanding Macronutrients (proteins, fats and carbohydrates) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) is a necessary start to building a nutritional regime.
Proteins are the building blocks of life and are essential parts of all living organisms.
Structural components like your muscles, skin, bones ,hair and finger nails all require significant amountsof protein via dietary intake.
Dietary fats are essential for cellular function, growth, development, hormone production, nutrient absorption and energy to name a few.
They also provide a satiating effect just like proteins do. Dietary fats will also regulate and keep a healthier body temperature. Unfortunately, dietary fat gains a bad rapport and is somewhat demonized from ignorant media sources and companies looking to exploit the market via “low fat” products.
Carbohydrates are the actual energy molecules that fuel us.
Our brain needs available glucose for its survival and our muscles use it as its preferred energy source for movement.
