Study: restaurant food is bad for a figure not less fast food

Modern restaurants are adopting new automation technology, using design, but also pay attention to the noise reduction and the creation of a right of light.

To manipulate the visitors is not so difficult — we have already seen, gimmicks that institutions use to force guests to pay more. In addition, it is believed that in the restaurants the food is a more useful figure than in fast food outlets. But is it really?

New data

Not so long ago in the European journal of clinical nutrition, was presented the study, researchers from the Illinois Institute of.

According to the data obtained by them, fast food in some ways maybe even a little healthier food in restaurants with full service. So far as it is dangerous to eat out?

According to the results of a new study, restaurant food can cause excess weight as well as fast food. This once again confirms that people who want to lose weight, it is not necessary to frequent the places of public supply. Oddly enough, this study showed that fast food may not be as harmful as eating in restaurants with full service.

The researchers examined the medical records of more than 18,000 American adults participating in the National audit programme health and nutrition. This number includes patients seen in the period from 2003 to 2010.

Scientists came to the conclusion that eating in restaurants with full service or fast food, we get up to 200 extra calories a day. This can occur because visitors of restaurants with full service, yielding to the entreaties of the waiters, you can eat more food. At that time, as the visitors of fast food restaurants are unlikely to drive up to the window of the cafe the second or third time for an additional portion.

Restaurant food is rich in vitamins and minerals, unlike fast food or homemade food. However, it also contains more cholesterol and sodium than fast food.

"People who eat at restaurants with full service, consume much more cholesterol than those who eat at home. Those extra 58 milligrams of cholesterol a day 20 percent of the maximum recommended daily requirement of 300 calories," says Ruopeng An (Ruopeng An) from the University of Illinois.

Americans eat an average of 3,100 milligrams (mg) of sodium per day, while the recommended intake for a healthy diet is between 1500 to 2300 mg per day. It turned out that eating in fast food restaurants, we exceed the daily rate of 300 mg, and in restaurants with full service – 412 mg.

In a press release from the University stated that "Excess sodium causes even greater concern because excessive sodium consumption by Americans is a serious threat to public health, in particular, is a cause of hypertension and heart disease".

The study also showed that African-Americans eat more fat, including saturated fat, sugar and salt than other races. Among all population groups, people with middle income levels consume more total fat, including saturated fat, sodium and calories. And patients suffering from obesity, consume foods with higher fats (saturated and total), cholesterol, sodium, and calories, compared to patients with overweight or a healthy weight.

The researchers argue that the best way to adhere to proper levels of these nutrients is to eat at home, but also with the mind to approach the choice of food. published
