Nutritionist Tatyana Meshcheryakova: those who want to lose weight by summer do not need to give up fat.

The desire to lose weight by summer arises in many people these days. Nutritionist Meshcheryakova noted in a conversation with Gazeta.Ru that those who are losing weight by summer often resort to extreme methods of losing excess weight and refuse to eat certain food groups. She named the 3 main mistakes of losing weight for the summer, including giving up fat. The doctor emphasized that “the right fat” is just necessary for the body to function properly, and an extremely low-fat diet is harmful to health. A lack of fat in the diet slows down metabolic processes, interferes with the absorption of vitamins, and negatively affects the synthesis of hormones. The expert advised eating unrefined vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, fish, and dairy products.

“Fats are energy for the brain and building material for the synthesis of a number of hormones. Therefore, all low-fat diets and foods themselves are unhealthy. Moreover, most of the vitamins that appear to be deficient in the spring season are fat-soluble (A, D, E, K), and it is fats that allow the body to fully absorb them,” said Tatyana Meshcheryakova.
Another mistake the expert called being too strict restrictions in the diet – various types of fasting, low-carbohydrate nutrition, mono-diets, raw food diet and so on. The nutritionist explained that extreme nutrition and refusal of certain food components can be a strong stress for the body, especially in the spring, when it is weakened.

The third mistake, according to Meshcheryakova, is a passion for various kinds of detoxes. The specialist warned that following detox programs can provoke an exacerbation of chronic diseases.

Earlier, the portal wrote that oncologist Irina Borovova named poor nutrition as one of the reasons for the development of intestinal cancer.
