Hot days demand their own rules of life. And in order not to suffer when it's hot, you must know these rules. During the scorching heat, nutritionists recommend a change in the menu.
The first rule is not to overburden your stomach. The heat provokes us to reach for the refrigerator, since it is filled with delicious icy things.
That is exactly what you must not do. A large quantity of food requires a large amount of energy for the body to absorb. Instead of using the energy for vitally important processes, the body spends it on digestion.
Overeating leads to overburdening of the digestive tract and disrupts its function, plus, excess food sticks to the hips in the form of fat.
Get up from the table before you feel the sense of satiety. The second rule is to temper your menu. It needs to be balanced during the heat waves.
In the heat, the acid-base balance of the body is disrupted in favor of the "acidic" side. That's why the body needs dairy products and plant-based food, in order to neutralize the harmful acidity.
During hot weather, drink lots of water - twice the amount you would drink during cold weather. Water is essential especially during physical exercises, when a person sweats and needs to restore the moisture lost.
