We prefer fresh foods that are easily digested. Instead, we avoid foods that are too sweet and too salty.

7. Ice cream instead of a meal

Heat is a bad enemy and many times the desire to eat ice cream and skip a meal is high. It could be a great solution during the midday meal, quick and refreshing. Clearly it must be framed in my own daily calorie intake.

A smoothie or protein bar would also be ideal:


8. We avoid complete dishes

We prefer to eat instead of a complete meal: first, second and side dish a single dish with all the nutrients well balanced.

For example we could eat: legumes and / or vegetables - fish / eggs / meat and / or vegetables.

9. Less salt and prefer iodized salt

Consuming a little salt is important and preferring iodized salt.

10. No to conservation

Remember that if we wanted to eat out, for example a picnic, to bring a cooler to keep food cold. Also, do not keep food in the refrigerator for a long time as it could become contaminated.
