With the improvement of living standards, we often hear the words at the dining table: “Eat less, eat more vegetables, rice has no nutrition, nutrition is in the dish.” On the surface this seems to make sense, however, From a scientific nutrition point of view, if this continues for a long time, it will be extremely detrimental to the health of the body.
Rice and pasta are the staple foods of the Chinese people. The reason why they are called staple foods and various dishes are called non-staple foods is inseparable from China’s eating habits since ancient times. Our Chinese people have always taken rice and pasta as necessary food from ancient times. The dietary habits and nutritional absorption of a nation cannot be easily changed by one or two generations. It has undergone thousands of years of life evolution. Formed.
Carbohydrates are the “basic raw materials” needed by our body, and 50% to 60% of the total thermal energy obtained by a person in a day comes from carbohydrates. The main ingredient of rice and pasta is carbohydrates, which can be directly converted into calories.
In addition, rice is much easier to digest than fish and meat. Why do we never get tired of eating rice all our lives, but we have to lose our appetite when eating big fish and meat for several days? This is because the big fish and the big meat are heavy, the color is heavy, and the oil is heavy. If you eat too much, it will cause great irritation to the stomach. The taste of rice and pasta is very light, and it is not offensive even if consumed daily. Excessive intake of rich dishes will cause a great burden on the stomach.
Some people think that eating more vegetables doesn’t matter. This makes sense, of course. However, vegetables fried with too much cooking oil should not be eaten too much, otherwise high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and obesity are likely to be caused.
Nutritionists disagree with the absolute “eat more food, eat less” view. Promote the scientific and reasonable combination of staple foods and non-staple foods. Staple food must account for the absolute proportion. In addition, it depends on the growth stage of each person. For example, adolescents are growing up and have a large amount of activity. It is necessary to increase the amount of non-staple food and take in nutrition scientifically.
The number of patients with gastrointestinal diseases has increased compared to the past, especially the prevalence of adolescents is becoming lower, which is related to the blind blind eating of many children at home. “Eat less. Eat more vegetables” This unhealthy eating concept should be corrected in time.
