Nordic Diet

Nordic Diet
 During the last year and a half nutritionists actively encouraged to adhere to the so-called Mediterranean diet. Now it is gradually replacing the "Nordic", which is based on a different, more accessible to northerners set of products.

So Nordic diet provides presence in the diet foods such as Brussels sprouts and squash, which, compared with other vegetables, is very rich in antioxidants and high in fiber. It is also necessary to use other products with antioxidants, such as: blueberries, lingonberries and rich in omega-3 fatty acids cloudberries. In addition, adhering to the Norwegian diet should increase the intake of lean meat (venison and leggings) fish and low-fat made from sheep's milk products.

Since milk, reindeer meat and fish are rich in protein and contain a minimum of harmful fats, people quickly saturated to obtain a small amount of calories, which plays an important role in the consolidation and maintenance of normal weight.

Breakfast in the Nordic diet should consist of oatmeal porridge made with low-fat milk. In porridge before meals can add berries. A few hours later, it is necessary to prepare lunch, which should include a sandwich from a small piece of lean ham or venison cutlets with whole wheat bread, or herring, or liver pate. At lunch you can eat a reindeer steak with fresh or steamed Brussels sprouts. After two hours - lunch consisting of a mousse or yogurt based on sheep's milk.

For the inhabitants of the middle latitudes is quite difficult to find even some products on the shelves of big stores. Therefore, sheep's milk cow can be replaced with low-fat venison - white chicken meat (breast), turkey meat, or boiled beef, and berries such as blueberries and cloudberries - blueberries or cranberries.

You should also pay attention to the fact that the Nordic diet, in contrast to the Mediterranean, prohibits drinking alcohol in any form.
