Our Eating Habits
Let's have a look at a typical time table. Some of it
may sound familiar:
time table of questionable food habits|
AM: Breakfast: One cup of coffee or tea, glass of orange juice. Off to work!
Hungry! Bagel with cream cheese, (or donut or muffin). Coffee, tea or cola.
Soup, ham and cheese sandwich (or burger). Diet pop.
Snack consisiting of coffee and cookies. (Or maybe no snack - no time!)
Dinner. The works: Salad, a large steak, mashed potatoes, peas and carrots, cheese
cake for dessert.
10.00PM: Watching the game on TV. Chips,
dip, popcorn, or ice cream with fudge sauce.
night: midnight snack with whatever found in fridge.
Unhealthy eating is a sure-fire recipe for poor health
down the road. No, of course you won't feel a lack of health right now, but you
can be pretty sure that you'll pay your bill later.You have been overfed and undernourished!
You are skipping breakfast, but at 10 AM you break down and eat a nutritionally
deficient breakfast. You are ingesting an overdose of carbohydrates and fat. Protein
is not in the picture, and it is poor in vitamins. As far as the fat content goes,
it's probably too high. Did you really want the trans fats in the donut or muffin?Lunch:
More carbohydrates! Carbohydrates are not BAD, but you have been
eating high density carbs, which are doing a disservice to your insulin level.
Your hamburger will have some protein, but it is too high in fats. If you had
a sandwich, and it was stacked with a high sodium and high fat sandwich meat,
it was not so great either.
The snack was not the best choice, to put it mildly.
Eating nothing at all is not a brilliant choice either.
Dinner: Sounds like heavy duty stuff.I
hope the steak was lean, but 16 ounces are too much. Mashed potatoes, peas, and
carrots are a lot of dense carbohydrates, and the cheesecake has more plus a load
of dairy fat and increase your blood sugar.
Ice cream gives you the sugar buzz you have been wanting, and you augmented it
with the fudge sauce. Here comes more dairy fat! Chips and pop are supplying you
with lots of trans fats, dense carbs and sugar, along with an overdose of sodium.
is obviously some room for improvement. In conclusion, it has to be said, that
balance or moderation have gone by the wayside! Return to health, nutrition and
