The modes of operation of the human body in the cold season are significantly different. Nutrition is also an important part of our body’s functioning. We present you some tips on nutrition during the cold season.
Tip #1. Not to starve!
The calorie content of winter food should be higher than that of summer food. This must be achieved by increasing the consumption of fish, poultry, meat dishes, i.e. with a high content of “heavy proteins”. Of course, you can’t do without carbohydrates in winter. Excluding them from the diet threatens a decrease in immunity and the possibility of easily catching cold viral diseases.
Tip #2. Vitamins and more vitamins!
It is imperative to include vitamin-rich foods in your diet. You should not lose sight of vitamins A and E. In winter, they also play an important role; in particular, vitamin E helps protect the skin from chapping and frost.
Tip #3. Don’t forget to drink water!
Even in winter, you need to drink at least 1.5 liters of liquid, and at least a liter of clean water. The remaining liquid can be in the form of compotes, infusions or warm teas.
Tip #4. Hot – a must!
Be sure to consume hot foods or warm drinks. If you have to snack on the go, it is advisable to wash down your meal with warm tea.
Tip #5. Diversity!
Try to make the menu as varied as possible. It is advisable to alternate products daily. Such a variety of dishes and the fractional principle of eating will give your body enough energy for active life in the winter season.
