Mid-morning and afternoon snack
Snacks should be light. The best options are skimmed dairy products, corn or rice cakes, fruit and/or vegetables.
The plate method should also be applied to dinner, but opting for lighter foods instead. The drink should also be water and the dessert should be fruit. It is important to drink water and avoid alcoholic and sugary drinks.
As well as following a varied, balanced and complete diet, the way we cook is very important. It is therefore necessary to use simple cooking techniques (wok frying, steaming, boiling, griddle cooking, grilling, sauteed, baking, microwaving or papillote).
Fat-soluble vitamins (vitamin A, D, E and K) should be monitored. It is therefore important to consult health professionals. Sometimes it is necessary to use MCT oil, your healthcare professional will recommend this oil if necessary.
MCT oil is an oil that contains medium-chain triglycerides which have the peculiar characteristic in that the body digests them more easily and they are metabolized differently (unlike normal oil, which contains long-chain triglycerides, MCTs do not form chylomicrons. Chylomicrons are lipoproteins, the function of which is to transport lipids obtained from your diet to the liver and other tissues). You must read the instructions carefully as often this oil cannot be heated.
The promotion of a healthy lifestyle (sleep well, exercise and have a social life) will be key to good health.
