More vitamin myth
 It was decided, it was decided, it was decided! I begin to deal with them, follow the diet and in every way to maintain their shape and health. Staying young, healthy, and at the same time lose weight and prettier - my goal.

Far beyond the councils did not have to go. Internet scored the recommendations on this topic. Therefore, the strategy has long rebounds from the tooth, even if awaken a dark night, and even those who visit only sites with music and games. Everywhere the same: Drink plenty of water, eat right, take care of themselves, do not forget about exercise. So I did!

100 kilograms of a healthy weight
The key word here - "healthy". Why 100 kilograms? And now you learn. I have decided that it is not in vain nutritionists, cosmetologists and gynecologists and dentists unanimously repeat about vitamins and all sorts of precious and semi-precious stones, which must be present in the body, and hence in the diet. Specialists, and not have been published, and the rewriter and kopipaster copied hundreds of times daily intake of these precious food components. So - I should like to follow, and The Suite Life of Zack & Cody?

Here, for example, Vitamin A is necessary per day to 1 mg, of vitamin B1 - 1-2 mg of vitamin E - 10 mg of C - from 75 to 100 mg, and so on. These vitamins - nearly a dozen major and a dozen of these are not major. And there are more minerals - iron, zinc, copper, cobalt ... half of the periodic table, for sure. Okay, nothing to do. Health is more important is decided! Let's take.

The Internet was not difficult to find a vitamin composition of different products, as well as how many of them contained in every 100 grams of various products. It turns out that I can calculate the right amount of food, which will contain the daily requirement of vitamins and minerals. Here.

And then - the most interesting. That should look similar to my food basket for the day, to cover the daily need for nutrients.

   To get a daily dose of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, D, E, C, I need to eat:
200 g parsley
300 g butter
500 grams of green peas
400 g walnuts
200 g sour cream
50 g of crude oil
500 g of cabbage

Other vitamins, still as PP, P, K and others. I have also decided to hit the bottle, and this is about the same food.

 Now about the minerals. To cover the daily needs of my body in iron, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, Yoda, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium do I need to consume each day:
9 tablespoons sunflower seeds
150 g pickled herring
200 g of dried apricots
1 liter of milk
8 bananas
150g blueberries
200 g veal liver
2 pinches of salt
22 pistachios (pieces)
350 grams of oatmeal

And still need the necessary body cobalt, molybdenum, chromium, fluorine, chlorine, sulfur, Boron, Vanadium and ... a decent little list is dialed. They are still about the same, too.

There is proteins, fats, carbohydrates. It seems they need a bit of a day - 100 grams of protein, 400 g carbohydrate, 100 g fat. But here, too, lies the little secret. 100 g protein product (meat, chicken, fish) contained approximately 20 g protein. 100 g carbohydrate foods (flour, cereals) contains about 60 grams of carbohydrates. So, a day more accurately typed kilogram.

That is, only a rough estimate I a day to eat almost 10 pounds of food And then it will cover my needs for vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

There are still 2 to 6 liters of water per day, the body needs. In general, even if we take into account that many products contain several substances unknown to us, though, I agree to share even received two kilos, it still turns out for me an impressive number. Five kilograms of food a day!   In my opinion, it's decent. Especially for women who want to lose weight. Now, with four meals a day, the amount of each dish I was not more than a glass. I mean, I could barely dial kilogram of food, and do not believe that it is not enough. And then I have to thresh the vegetables and fruit crates.

It should also take into account the fact that these norms according to which the amount of food I expected, correspond only to the content of vitamins in fresh food. During cooking by vitamins is only 20%, and sometimes less than 10 and, if consume foods raw, then there should not expect vitamin composition, because even days of storage already eat 10 to 20% of the vitamins, according to various sources. This means that any 10 or 5 kilograms of food that I have outlined, will not cover the daily requirement of vitamins. And food must still 2 times more. Horror, right?

 More vitamin myth
   In general, something is wrong. For some reason I immediately thought that the tables and all sorts of rules created too biased, is not it? Probably not without vitamin manufacturers. It is only used to Vitaminka were plummeting product. PR vitamins is very similar to the way we are taught that no child will not grow yogurt. And how we grew up, I want to ask? A generation of our grandmothers? And it seems logical: you do not want to consume 10 pounds of food - buy vitamin complex. This is a trap. Because the main question - is it necessary? Why does the body of the supreme being on the planet is regarded as a primitive mechanism of "loaded into the furnace of fire wood - working, not loaded - does not work."

In general, I do not believe all this modern talk about vitamins. I was especially now, after my very rough calculations, funny warning about the fact that an overdose of minerals as dangerous as lack. Almost all the dead men, if the silicon in our body popribavilos. Yes to him or any other minerals popribavilos, I need to start eating an aluminum spoon, eating and copper tungsten wire. And eat 5 pounds of oatmeal at a time to go through the zinc - it is almost impossible!

Maybe I'm a little biased, but I am very suspicious now all that talk about vitamins and minerals, and especially about vitamin complexes. Manufacturers of vitamins repeat that we are not enough, but, perhaps because not enough that they are about such rules subsistence somewhere took? After all, in their vitamins standards can not suffice, in principle, because the master-five pounds of food a day, few can. And if you can, then get those same 100 pounds of their healthy weight, even many, but - healthy!
