Human body operates significantly different during the cold season. Nutrition is an important element that impacts our body’s performance. Here are some tips on what to eat during the cold season.
Tip 1. No starving!
The calorie count of your meals in winter should be higher than that of your meals in summer. It can be done by increasing the consumption of fish, poultry and meats, i.e. the products with high content of “heavy proteins”. Of course, we cannot do without carbohydrates in winter as well. Excluding them from your diet may weaken your immune system, thus making it easy for you to catch cold.
Tip 2. Vitamins, more vitamins!
It is essential to include products rich in vitamins into your diet, especially vitamins A and E. In winter, they also play a valuable role. Vitamin E, for instance, helps to protect skin from crusting and freezing.
Tip 3: Don’t forget to drink water!
Even in winter we should drink at least 1.5 liters of liquid, one liter of it being plain water. Other liquids may include compotes, infusions or warm teas.
Tip 4. Hot dishes are a must!
Hot dishes or warm beverages are mandatory. If you have to snack on the go, it is recommended that you drink warm tea afterwards.
Tip 5. Variety!
Try to make the menu as diverse as possible. Products need to be alternated every day. This variety of dishes and the fractional principle of meals will provide your body with enough energy and you will be able to stay active during the winter.
