Must-follow nutritional tips for better student life

businessThe rhythm of the life of modern people is increasing every year. It is more difficult to allocate time for even the most necessary things, meals for instance. We eat on the go, buy unhealthy products or completely skip meals. And if an adult realizes what harm he does to the body, a student thinks it’s a myth. Their young body allows them to experiment with food for the time being, while adult people face negative consequences immediately.

In order to improve the quality of your life, you have to acquire healthy eating habits. Having spent some time and effort on it now, in the future, you will save money on medicines that you will be prescribed for the restoration of your gastrointestinal tract. Below is the list of top-7 nutritional tips prepared in collaboration with Brainy Bro.

Do sleep enough

Before giving advice on the nutrition topic directly, you have to dwell on such a question as a full sleep. The concept of proper nutrition includes not only eating food but also its digestion. During sleep, which should last 7-9 hours, your body does not only restore energy but also digests food. As a result of lack of sleep, metabolism in the body slows down, and this leads to being overweight. During sleep, the hormone needed to burn fat is produced. That is why even if you eat an average amount of calories per day, the body cannot cope with them if you spend not enough time in a sleep state.

Do have breakfast

Going to bed late after working on the term paper or after a cool party, there is a burning desire to sleep another 5 minutes after the alarm clock rings. We are ready to get dressed in a hurry, put on what comes to hand, forget to put some great notebook in a backpack. The most terrible thing is that we can easily refuse breakfast, to avoid getting up right now.

This is the most important meal, which «starts up» the whole body and awakens in it all the necessary processes. In order not to cook in the morning, stock up on cottage cheese quickly cooked oatmeal with sliced fruit. It will take you 5 minutes. Only 5 minutes and how much good it will bring!

Do drink water

Another obvious advice, which is still ignored by a vast number of people. In addition to all the well-known facts that water is necessary for a good condition of the skin and hair, that it removes toxins from the body, it lowers the blood pressure; it improves digestion as well.

Due to lack of water, the stomach stops producing enough gastric juice, which leads to a lot of discomfort and diseases. Carbonated soft drinks, juice, tea and coffee do not count. Drink still water, in small sips, even when you are not thirsty.

Do adhere to the diet

The diet improves the body’s resistance to toxic substances and infections. Since students are engaged in mental activity more, four meals a day are suitable for them. Hearty breakfast, lunch, a healthy snack, and dinner should be present in your schedule every day.

The intervals between meals should not exceed 4 hours. Caloric content of consumed portions should be approximately the same. Regularity in nutrition is essential for both physical health and for clarity of thinking. Otherwise, the normal rhythm of the digestive system leaves something to be desired. You can have breakfast and dinner at home, but what to do with the 2 remaining? Food in the dining room may not suit you, but it’s not an excuse to skip meals. Prepare them in advance and buy a cute lunch box. To boil chicken meat or fish, cook a side dish, take nuts, fruits or vegetables for an afternoon snack is a cup of tea.

Do refuse late dinner 

We are that busy throughout the day; we are starving without lunch and snacks, we come home in the evening and start eating everything. Do not dinner like a pauper, but the portion should not be large. Give preference to products containing animal and vegetable proteins and to limit the carbohydrates. Meat, fish, seafood, soybeans or other beans for the side dish – whatever you like. Make your menu diverse and control the amount. Eat slowly and chew thoroughly. You can eat after 6 pm; the major thing is that there should be at least 2 hours between your dinner and sleep.

Do cut down on using sugar and salt

It is extremely difficult to abandon sugar and salt completely and basically there is no need. Our brain needs sugar for energy, and salt is necessary for muscles to contract. But it is better to limit them to prevent their surplus in the body. Excluding you do not want to eat insipid, tasteless food. You can add honey, maple syrup or dried fruits to food instead of sugar. Instead of salt, you can add kelp, garlic, dried vegetables or soy sauce. Some products taste good without any additions. For instance, green tea has a pleasant taste. And sea fish does not require additional salt.

Do refuse fast food and junk food

Forget the way to fast food restaurants and food courts with shawarma and hamburgers. It’s delicious, you do not have to cook and spend a lot of time in the kitchen, but it’s terribly unhealthy. And you understand it. If you really want, you are able to make a cheeseburger at home, using fresh, healthy products, without fatty sauces and food additives. While watching your favorite TV series, you should not open another can of a soft drink and a packet of chips. Instead, you can make freshly squeezed juice and take fruit or vegetable chips. The process is the same, but your body will say “thank you”.

Start eating healthy food, and you will feel more energy. Even your mood will get better. Take care of your health and do not forget that it affects your well-being in 20 years. What do you want to spend your money on? On traveling, apartments and cars or medicines?
