A diet that includes all the nutrients without avoiding certain types of food- can help a person prevent diseases and improve life expectancy. This is the main reason why many dietitians and nutritionists recommend eating “all colors of the rainbow,” a clear metaphor for what would be a complete and balanced food plan.
With respect to the addition of fruit in our daily diets, the benefits are enormous. It is known that if you eat cherries at night it will help you to lose weight. Apples, help to regulate digestion and balance glucose levels in the blood. Pear possesses anti-inflammatory properties and helps reducing bags under the eyes.
But there is a fruit that really beautifies and helps you lose weight. It is watermelon, in only ONE slice brings 150 ml of water (equivalent to 8 glasses nutritionists advise drinking).
The data come from the European Hydration Institute (EHI), claims that besides drinking almost two liters of water per day, incorporating watermelons in their natural state or in juices is recommended for all those people who need to add some flavor to their drinks. In this case, orange, grapefruit, and lemon are great alternatives to start the day.
“Watermelon owes its reddish lycopene color, to the carotenoid pigment, which is also responsible for the red color of tomatoes, peaches or pink grapefruit. Carotenoids are natural pigments synthesized by plants. Although its importance has focused on those with vitamin a, at present other carotenoids, such as lycopene, have attracted interest for its many properties”. said medical nutritionist Monica Katz
Watermelon contains high quantities of Lycopene, it prevents oxidation of bad cholesterol.
Also, there is evidence of an inverse association between intake of lycopene and development of certain cancers. This is especially strong for prostate cancer. The mechanisms behind inhibition of carcinogenesis are increased in the detoxification systems and interference with cell proliferation in cycles of cell inhibition.
The EHI also they stressed that it is a SERIOUS mistake to wait to be thirsty in order to ingest liquid or water. Three outstanding data was given by the European entity: 90% of headaches are caused by dehydration; insufficient water in the brain causes the attention span of a human being to fall by 15% and also short-term memory by 10%. Also, not drinking enough water it causes the skin to shine and the loss of hair.
When it comes to losing weight, according to the department of nutrition at the University of California, it’s all about equivalence -fruit, vegetables and some cereals (especially the fruits during summer season) – which are of great help in losing those extra pounds.
