FOOD - WEIGHT GAIN - OBESITY (by Dr. Résimont)

ALIMENTATION - PRISE DE POIDS - OBÉSITÉ (par le Dr. Résimont) - Suplemint

Do you want to take care of your health and well-being on a daily basis? So, you already know how crucial it is to adopt a good diet. A balanced, healthy diet provides the essential nutrients our body needs to function optimally. But did you know that the importance of a good diet goes far beyond simply meeting nutritional needs? In this article, we will explore the multiple benefits of a balanced diet, tips, ideas... Let us guide you on the path to better health through wise food choices.

 

You absolutely have to eat protein the morning and midday both from a caloric point of view (transformation into fat of bread, morning cereals and other sugars) and from a point of view of synthesis of neurotransmitters.

The amino acid the tyrosine present in the proteins of the morning is transformed into dopamine, neurotransmitter which gives pleasure and the desire to undertake things, libido, joy of living, non-withdrawal and which accentuates motivation. A dopamine deficiency is very often found in burnout.

The synthesis of noradrenaline is done by the same amino acid, so it is very important to eat protein at breakfast and noon. A lack of noradrenaline can cause physical and psychological fatigue-asthenia, but can also be a reflection of a burnout, lack of synthesis of adrenal catecholamines.

The tryptophan present in proteins in the morning and at midday is transformed (if it is not destroyed by heat: cooking food) into serotonin at the end of the afternoon: neurotransmitter of well-being (the vast majority depressives are deficient in serotonin) low serotonin will manifest itself in sleep disorders (difficulty falling asleep, waking up early with difficulty to go back to sleep), carbohydrate or alcoholic compulsions, or other compulsions (drugs, games), irritability, anxiety-stress, and this serotonin will transform at the end of the evening into melatonin which triggers sleep, maintains good quality sleep and recuperator.                                                                                           

    Lack of protein in the morning and midday is probably the main cause of depression.

For these neurotransmitters to be sufficiently synthesized, it is necessary:

  • that the cell walls are sufficiently flexible (sufficient omega 3 and 6). 
  • that post synaptic receptors are not blocked by cytokines coming from excess intra-abdominal fat or from poor intestinal flora: dysbiosis (hypothyroidism and intestinal inflammation linked to a diet containing gluten and dairy products, excess alcohol ).
  • Need also to transform amino acids: tryptophan - tyrosine into neurovit transmitters. B6 - B9 - B12, Vitamin C, copper, zinc, iron, magnesium…
    : 100% of the non-supplemented population is deficient in several of these vitamins/trace elements (examples: 100% vitamin D deficiency - minimum 90% magnesium, etc.).

Good and bad calories:

  • Good calories are proteins, vegetables and fruits (except dates, figs, bananas, bunches of grapes, etc.) which cannot be accumulated or transformed into fat. 
  • Bad calories are bread, pasta, rice, starchy foods that are transformed into fat in a few hours if there is no physical job or activity sporty 30-45min during the day (brisk walking is sufficient) . 
  • The fat in food does not make you fat, but sugar from bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, couscous, and fast sugars like alcohol, soda, sweets, etc. if not used immediately (within a few hours) during an activity physique.
  • To burn food, you need a burner: the thyroid; the vast majority of the population is hypothyroid and is not aware of it (see thyroid) and to disperse the calories from the radiators = muscular mass ; if you have followed one or the other low-calorie diet, you have lost this possibility to disperse your calories. {No diet works long term}
    • Diet = 100% medium/long term failure (everyone knows the "yoyo"). None diet method cannot make you lose weight.

    The only way to lose weight permanently is to eat correctly, have activity physique (minimum 5 days/7) and resolve underlying hormonal problems, cure intestinal dysbiosis which affects 90% of our patients.

    - 90% hypothyroidism in our population.
    - Multiple and systematic hormonal deficiencies with advancing age: which leads to fatigue, weight gain, cancer, psychological disorders, discomfort, etc.


    Important principles in food:

     

    • To drink a lot of water.
    • Eat fresh food as much as possible" fresh fruits and vegetables are preferable to canned or dried fruits. On the other hand, prefer dried fruits to cornflakes or chocolate toast. Choose fresh meat over pre-packaged meat for preservation long term.
    • Chew food well. Food swallowed quickly is difficult to digest.
    • Eat enough protein (at every meal) : chicken, fish, meat, eggs, sprouted seeds.
    • Vary your diet : Eating the same breakfast every day, even if it consists of healthy foods, can cause food allergies and intestinal dysfunctions.
    • Avoid sweets (at least 5 days a week) such as candy, chocolate, ice cream, pastries, sugary drinks, cola, etc.

     Sweets can:

    - Reduce levels of growth hormone, sex hormones and many other hormones.
    - Cause caries and dental erosion.
    - Promote obesity.
    - Cause fatigue 40 minutes after ingestion (even if they give immediate energy). 
    - Promote study problems, etc.
    • Moderate or Better: Cut Grain Eating (bread, pasta, pizza, etc.) for 2 reasons: presence of gluten which has become toxic for everyone and very high caloric intake (unless you are thin and sporty). The best alternative is to eat sprouted seeds. To do this: let the grains germinate for 12 hours in a bowl of water. Then pass them through a sieve and rinse them.
      with water every 12 hours until they are sufficiently germinated.

    Some ideas for a healthy lunch : many foods tend to
    to initially give short-lived energy (around 15 minutes) to then cause around forty minutes later, fatigue and excessive nervous tension which can last for hours, or even possibly continue for 24 hours.

     

    High-protein breakfast:

    • Boiled egg (soft), omelette cooked at low temperature (do not brown it = burnt) with ham (Sugar free), chicken fillet or shrimp.
    • Bacon (unsmoked) boiled over a layer of water.
    • Cured or raw ham (e.g. Parma ham), sans nitrates (saltpeter is sodium nitrate), Sugar free (no dextrose, sucrose, maltose, glucose or cane sugar).
    • And attorney mixed with fresh fruits.
    • Of yogurt natural soy (no added sugar).Of Essene bread (sprouted grain bread sold in health food stores).

    And breakfast rich in vitamins:

    Fresh fruits :

  • Fruit cannot be mixed with other foods (except sprouted grains).
  • Peel the fruit if it is not organic.
  • In the form of fruit salad (vary the composition each day).
  •  

    sprouted grains : various flavors exist depending on the type of grain and depending on the preparation:

  • Preferably raw in order to preserve the vitamins.
  • Boiled (possibly mixed with nuts previously soaked for a few hours in water) or with pieces of fresh fruit to vary the taste.
  •  

    What to drink? Water is the ideal drink. Failing that: herbal tea, caffeine-free tea, soy milk (the one without sugar, with a blander taste), nut milk (almond, etc.), rice milk (without added sugar - cocoa can be added).


    Should I take food supplements with breakfast?

    Fish oil supplements: omega 3 (fatty acids) are excellent for intellectual functions and mood as well as magnesium morning and evening and 5 to 10,000 units of vit D.

    A multivitamin complex is recommended (organic food does not always provide sufficient quantities of minerals and vitamins).


    Some snack suggestions for 10 a.m. or 4 p.m.:

  • One or more fresh fruits (Vary the type of fruit each day).
  • Of the dried fruit : organic mangoes, pineapples, apples, dates (the larger ones are often the best, the smaller ones are often affected by mold). To digest them better, soak them in water beforehand.
  • Of the nut (previously immersed for a few hours in water) or hazelnuts (previously immersed in water for several days).

  • Vitamins and foods:

    Cardiovascular functions:

    Group B vitamins:

  • Sources of vitamin B6: soy, liver, meat, fish, brown rice, avocados, pulses.
  • Sources of vitamin B9: liver, oysters, soy, spinach, watercress, green vegetables, pulses, cheese
  • Sources of vitamin B12: liver, oysters, herring, fish, meat, eggs. 
  •  

    Anti-oxidants: 

    Carotenoids: 

    • Source of Alpha and Beta-carotene: peppers, carrots, spinach, broccoli, lettuce, spirulina. 
    • Source of Lycopenes: tomato, pink grapefruit, guava, watermelon, pomegranate.
    • Source of Lutein: green leafy vegetables: spinach, broccoli, cabbage. 
    • Source of beta-crypto xanthine: oranges, tangerines. 
    • Vitamins E: Hazelnuts, almonds, whole grains, egg, dark chocolate.
    • Zinc : Fish, oysters, shellfish, meats, egg yolk, onion, broccoli, beans, peas, watercress, brewer's yeast. 
    • Copper :Shellfish, liver, wheat, plums, green vegetables, pulses.
    • Sélénium : Garlic, Brazil nuts (3 per day), onion, cabbage, wheat germ, fruit, herring, oysters, brewer's yeast. 
    • CoQ10 : Fatty fish, meat, broccoli, spinach, hazelnuts, soy. 
    • Alpha Lipoic Acid: Broccoli, spinach. 
    Neuro transmitter optimization: 
    • Tyrosine : Eggs, dairy products, white ham or turkey fillet, banana, avocado: IN THE MORNING (Dopamine and/or Adrenaline deficiency).
    • Tryptophan: Brown rice, undercooked meat, dairy products, chocolate, banana, almonds, soy, legumes): IN THE AFTERNOON (Serotonin deficiency).
