What if someone told you that a certain food is the healthiest on the planet and you decide to eat it all the time and forget about the quantities or just exclude all the other food just because you heard they were bad?
The answer is simple, the good food when eaten in excess will definitely turn into bad food and in fact cause harm. Food should not be described as “good” or “bad.” Any foods taken in a big quantity will definitely start harming your body at a certain point, so here comes the magic word: “MODERATION.” Any healthy eating plan should be varied with all food groups.
Look what will happen when the following “good food” is taken in big amounts:
Fibers are important to prevent and relieve constipation and lower your risk of diabetes but too much fiber causes bloating, abdominal cramps and flatulence. Limit your intake to 25 – 35 g per day.
High protein diets: proteins need to repair and build muscles but too much protein can stress your kidneys and heart and lead to dehydration, bone loss, nausea & gout. The amount needed is 0.8mg x wt in kg.
Green tea: it keeps our heart healthy and relives stress but be careful with excess since 1 cup of tea contains 40 mg of caffeine. Too much caffeine can inhibit the absorption of iron. Limit you intake to 3 cups per day.
Olive oil is very healthy and protects you from heart disease, but it is high in calories (1 tsp = 45 cal) .Use it in moderation!
Water is the most essential ingredient. But drinking a lot of water quickly can cause nausea, vomiting and frequent urination.
