Nutritionist Meshcheryakova: fruit abuse is one of the summer nutrition mistakes

Dietician Tatyana Meshcheryakova spoke about the common mistakes people make in their daily diet in the summer.

Nutritionist Meshcheryakova reported that many people make similar mistakes in their daily diet in the summer diet – for example, sharply reduce the amount of food consumed. In the summer, indeed, due to the body’s reaction to the heat and the activation of its self-regulation mechanisms, the production of the hormone ghrelin, responsible for hunger, decreases. But if you refuse to eat, the risk of protein, amino acid, mineral and vitamin deficiencies increases. Meshcheryakova noted that food should be consumed in small portions three or four times during the day.

The nutritionist also called the abuse of fruits (and other gifts of nature) one of the typical mistakes people eat in the summer.

“The result of overdoing it with fresh juicy fruits is an allergic reaction or problems with the gastrointestinal tract. The body cannot cope with large amounts of fruit acids and fiber. The mucous membranes of the stomach and intestines become irritated, and a jump in blood sugar may occur,” the expert warned in a commentary to Vesti Podmoskovya.
Meshcheryakova added that fruits should be eaten without mixing with meat, poultry, fish and legumes. In addition, you need to be careful with early fruits; it is better not to rush into consuming them.

In addition, people make a mistake when in the summer they drink sweet carbonated drinks when they are thirsty and want to cool down

“In the heat you should stop trying to quench your thirst with sweet soda, packaged juices and sweet kvass,” the expert advised.
Meshcheryakova emphasized that all these drinks contain too much sugar, and when taken you can easily exceed its safe limit.
