In the early spring time special acuteness of the problem becomes food culture. It is predetermined by several factors.
Firstly, the fact that our body is overloadedFood products of metabolism winter (when the predominant proteins of animal origin and products refined carbohydrate), and therefore require cleaning and disinfection. How to make them?
Secondly, our body is in captivity, becausecalled, spring fatigue and defenseless against colds and infections, but the irritability is nothing to say. Everybody understands the reason for this condition - lack of vitamins and other "spermatozoa".
Thirdly, many people fast, so howdo not to eat an excessive amount of bread or pasta as a variety of foods to meet the needs of the body, even longer zashlakovyvat him not to gain weight?
And some springtime plans asuseful to organize a rational and satisfying meals throughout the year. Dietitians say that in all of these cases, help our constant saviors - representatives of wildlife, which has poured juice and quickly go to the growth.
