To start with, food and drink are very important, because nobody can live without eating or drinking. Needless to say, these two things may be a great pleasure. Of course we have to eat neither too much nor too little. As a general rule, geographic location and family tradition play major part in forming dietary habits, food choices vary from person to person. The fact of the matter is that fast food is major part of many people diet’s. It’s clear, fast food is frequently high in fat salt and low in minerals and vitamins. To tell the truth, my family dislikes fast food. To the best of my knowledge, there are seven Macdonald’s restaurants in Lithuania. I really can’t stand all the Macdonald’s restaurants that we have now. Personally I believe, that they all look the same, the food tastes like plastic, and although a burger and fries contains loads of calories and you are hungry again five minutes late. I feel very strongly that I am fond of traditional food. In fact I am keen on my mom’s cooking best.
In general, if you want to stay healthy and slim it’s important to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables, to cut down on salty on salty snacks, chips, nuts, sweets, chocolates and to use less salt and sugar in cooking.
As far as I know, eating too much salt and sugar can effect your risk of developing heart disease and raise the level of cholesterol in the blood. Eating too much sugar can mean that you are more likely to become obese and that means a higher risk of getting heart disease. Indeed, sugar tastes good but, of course, it contains nothing but calories.
In addition some people can keep slim without any effort, but a lot of people do put on too much weight and dislike it. Besides some of the people put their faith in exercise, but the problem here is that you can sweat off a couple of kilos , but it all back again with a big plate of macaroni.
Taking everything into account, a well-balanced diet should provide all the vitamins we normally require. Vitamins are vital for growth, good health and maintenance for normal functions of the body. Modern methods of preserving, freezing and long-term storage of food, together with overcooking destroy many of the vitamins.
