Nutritionist Liliya Starodubtseva: it is more correct to consume meat as a source of protein during the day rather than in the evening.

Nutritionist Starodubtseva spoke in an interview about the proper use of protein products. The specialist noted that the diet must include a variety of high-quality sources of protein of animal and plant origin.

“High-quality protein should be in every human meal,” said the RIAMO nutritionist.
Where it is found quality protein?In cereals, legumes, eggs, fish, meat, nuts. Vegetables and fruits contain some protein.

How to properly consume protein foods? Starodubtseva advised eating meat during the day, not in the evening.

Egg and fish dishes are suitable for dinner – these are protein products that are “lighter” than meat; they will not overload the liver and gall bladder in the evening hours.

“Always combine meat with vegetables and herbs. For dinner it’s better to eat eggs with vegetables or fish with vegetables.”
The nutritionist recommends eating cereal dishes in the morning or at lunch. Fruits – in the first half of the day.

The specialist added that during the day you should avoid snacking on simple carbohydrates and sweets. These snacks contribute to fluctuations in blood sugar levels, which cause increased appetite and cravings for high-calorie foods. The nutritionist emphasized that sufficient consumption of a variety of protein allows you not to feel hungry between meals.
