Food that takes energy

At each step, offering fast food. Many can not resist the temptation, so often eat these foods, but it is not giving enough nutrients or enough energy. Do you eat the wrong things you will eventually damage your health.

This is the food and drink that takes energy:

1 Artificial Sweeteners
After digestion creates low-calorie sugar alcohols such as mannitol, sorbitol and xylitol. They upset stomach and can lead to the formation of gas and inflating, which takes energy. Do not use or limit the gum with artificial sweeteners. In addition to sugar alcohols, and just chewing stimulates swallowing air, which further leads to the formation of gas in the digestive tract.

2 Processed Foods
Candy bar or bag of chips gives express dose of energy, but processed food passes quickly into the blood, which means that there was a sudden wave of energy, and equally sudden fall.

3 Never eat only sweet
Candy or a dessert always try to eat after a meal in which they were represented protein and fat. This will slow down the absorption of sugar and prevent sudden changes in blood sugar.

4 Insufficient water intake

Avocados, nuts, olive oil and other healthy fats facilitate digestion and bloating is less likely. But eat them in moderation.

2 Complete food
Less is more. Eat whole foods as often as possible (fruit, vegetables, nuts, beans, legumes, whole grains) and always choose the least processed version of the packaged foods that have a short ingredient list. When it comes to pasta and bread, and see if the first listed ingredient whole wheat flour. Foods that are closest to their natural state will give you a much smoother, longer-lasting supply of energy.
