In order to determine the effectiveness of any nutrition, first of all, it is necessary to pay attention to the caloric content of products and their energy value. So, for example, in pork, butter, chocolate, contains the largest amount of fat. The energy value of pork meat is also higher than, for example, turkey meat.
It should be noted that the water content in food also affects their calorie content. For example, vegetables and fruits, characterized by their water content and not having a high carbohydrate content, are most often recommended by dieticians.
The calorific value of plant products is lower compared to animal products. In addition, the fiber contained in them, beneficially contributes to the digestion of food, slowing down the process of absorption of carbohydrates and fats.
What should be the value of kcal foods per day?
Today, this question excites many. And since all people have different indicators of growth, age, weight and vitality, then, accordingly, the selection of foods for nutrition in calories should also be different.
Calorie foods have generally accepted recommendations for their use. So, middle-aged men should receive about 3200 kilocalories together with food during the day. Fewer women - up to 2500 kilocalories. When compiling a daily diet for the elderly, it is necessary to take into account their sedentary lifestyle.
What affects human energy consumption?
We all feel tired and tired as a result of work or physical education. Eating and how it is absorbed by the body directly affects the human condition. Great attention must also be paid to metabolism.
The calorie content of products is of great importance in our life, therefore, scientists have developed special techniques that allow you to quickly calculate the specific amount of energy costs for people involved in various types of activities.
Consider the question of the use of chicken meat in our diet, whether it is useful, what is the calorie content. Most of all, women are concerned with this issue, as they always think about the health of their family.
You need to know that chicken meat is characterized by a considerable protein content - 22.5%, as
well as an almost complete set of existing amino acids necessary for the normal functioning of the body. All this mainly distinguishes it from other varieties of meat. Also, the richness of chicken consists in a considerable number of trace elements: magnesium, calcium, potassium, selenium, iron and others. And in terms of phosphorus, chicken is not inferior to seafood.
However, it must be said that chicken is also harmful. This is explained by dishonesty of manufacturers. The use of antibiotics and growth hormones when growing chickens only spoils the meat. Therefore, when preparing it, it is better to pre-boil it for five minutes, and then drain the first water, which will only improve its quality and will not affect the taste and calorie content of boiled chicken.
