Pros and Cons of Dieting

Why not just take a supplement? Food and HGH Energizer supplement manufacturers take the latest research and create pills and "functional foods" that contain high levels of isolated nutrients. However, these products are not a substitute for real food. Fortified foods contain nutrients in an amount greater than what is typically found in that food. Time and again the fad of the day will be proven not to be effective or even to be harmful in large doses. Moderation is probably the favorite word of most dietitians and is applicable in this situation as well. Eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables to get their health protective benefits instead of taking pills or consuming manufactured food products.How do you know if you are getting enough? The simplest way: look at your plate; it should be 1/2 vegetable, 1/4 lean protein and 1/4 starch/grain.Are you short of time to cook vegetables because you are always working? I have become a big fan of frozen fruits and vegetables. They get ready in less time. Another advantage is that frozen fruits and veggies actually have more nutrients than their fresh counterparts in the produce section. This is because frozen produce is frozen immediately after harvest, preserving their nutrients, whereas fresh fruits and vegetables, ironically enough, experience a delay of up to several days before they hit your plate. During that time, they begin to lose valuable vitamins as well as flavor.
