5 myths about healthy lifestyles

Running for me has always been a punishment. No, that's just Jogging. The child enjoyed playing football, then for a long time and seriously played basketball. But running!

Get up early was always a pain, something to harden and pour cold water (and a cold shower after a sauna) I regard as a mockery of a man. Ate always how it goes, good hostel and the army tempered. The workflow is tightly seated and in front of the computer, respectively the fresh air and not stuck.

That is why as a balm for the soul I read that are supposedly myths about measures and methods suggested for a healthy lifestyle:-)

You should certainly treat them warily, but apparently something here is...

Myth 1. Jogging in the morning is always useful

Two years ago scientists from the Institute for the study of the cardiovascular system of the person at the center Lehigh Valley Health Network (USA, Pennsylvania) made an official statement that even with fairly moderate loads Jogging can cause serious health damage. This was preceded by a study involving 3,800 people involved in the running of varying intensity. Of the men and women over 35 constituted group with an average age of 46 and got an unexpected result.

The life expectancy of those who run a lot and intensively, as well as those who do not exercise at all, was less than those who engaged in running moderately. The factors that could distort the clinical picture (chronic hypertension or hypotension, high levels of blood cholesterol and Smoking) were taken into account in advance — none of them could affect the study.

The worsening of the statistics of the duration of life started roughly at around 20 miles (32 km) per week, i.e. a total of about 4.5 km per day. The latter corresponds to about 30-45 minutes daily jog, extended jog lead to a reduction in the life expectancy of runners. Especially expensive Jogging treated those who ran in the city in close proximity to active traffic on normal pavement without a special spring-loaded cover.

Myth 2. Low fat food is part of a healthy diet

Heard that fatty foods supposedly contributes to the development of cardiovascular disease, and low fat reduces the risks? Six years ago, the American journal of clinical nutrition has devoted an entire special issue. Editors have combined the data of 21 studies.

It is a different clinical experiments unrelated hospitals and institutions from different parts of the United States. Participated in almost 350 thousand subjects, of which 11 thousand at the beginning of the study it was already observed in cardiologists with symptoms of cardiovascular diseases.

The average duration of study was 14 years. And the conclusion was: no direct connection between the consumption of fatty foods and the development of vascular diseases and heart no. But if you avoid the dietary fat not because of fear of problems with cardiology, but because you want to lose weight, it's a classic low-fat foods are for you and not contraindicated.

Especially yogurt, because in order to compensate for the change of taste caused by the reduction of fat content, these products add more sugar. So for the figure they are much more dangerous than fat.

Myth 3. Up early — a sign of a healthy lifestyle

The old saying, Slavic analogue of the "early bird...", linking up early with health, wealth and wisdom (Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise), is a liar! Last year a group of researchers from the University of Westminster (UK) published a report according to which early awakening leads to chronic stress.

The fact that approximately 6 to 8 am, the body produces a maximal level of cortisol — a stress hormone. But most importantly, a revival in this period keeps your cortisol levels are too high at all day.

Accordingly, if the early climbs for you — a way of life, hence, an overdose of cortisol — enduring phenomenon. Over time, it will have to pay decreased immunity, chronic headaches and depression. The usefulness of the morning exercise the morning of the damage lack of sleep does not compensate.

So if work or classes you need to get to 8-9 in the morning, physical exercises it is better to postpone for the evening. By the way, a period of the most valuable for the body sleep is considered the time from 8 PM to midnight and from 2 PM to sunset.

Myth 4. Desserts — it's evil!

A striking conclusion of a group of scientists from tel Aviv University, published this winter, contrary to all traditional notions of proper nutrition. If we want to lose weight, the first thing we recommend to reject, — confectionery products (the classic combination of animal fats and carbohydrates).

This recommendation deny Israeli nutritionist Daniela Jakubowicz and several of her associates, who recently put an interesting experiment. 193 people who wanted to lose weight, were divided into two groups. The first was constantly fed with a low calorie diet — 300 calories per serving. The second group in the morning were given a full Breakfast — 600 calories (eggs, meat, beans, vegetables), and then were treated to dessert, but the total number of calories per day was the same as the first group (1600 a day for men and 1,400 for women).

So, the rate of weight loss participants in both groups were the same. But the stability achieved in the second group was much higher: after 32 weeks, the participants of the experiment, were sitting on a strict low-calorie diet and started to re-gain has just dropped pounds, while those who ate cakes in the morning, and still lose weight.

So, if you like to indulge sometimes sweetly, to continue can do so with a light heart. But only in the morning and knowing a sense of proportion: for those who eat confectionary pounds, with payback likely to be type II diabetes and obesity.

Myth 5. Long walks in the fresh air is good for all

But in that case, if you have extra weight and if you a city dweller. Scientists at the Department of social medicine of the University of Montreal investigated differences in the respiratory organs slender and full of people. It turned out that the depth of respiration is correlated with weight.

The experiment showed that people suffering from obesity, inhale an average of 50% more air. The less excess weight the less excess breath, but even at minimum you exceed your ideal weight man breathes is 7% more air. In the city with him and he gets his share of gaseous pollutants — ammonia, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, etc.

If the rate of surplus breathing will be above 10%, a result of regular long walks in the city, likely to become poisoning, which subsequently written off to General environmental pollution. In General, most people have enough common sense to be careful, when someone smokes a cigarette, a strong smell of smoke reminds them of the contamination. But we must remember that serious contamination is often present even where smell.
