Dietary Recommendations and Chiropractic Care

It is recommended as a basic principle to consume a balanced diet, increase physical activity, maintain proper body weight, take salt in moderation, sugar, total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and alcohol, and increase consumption of foods like vegetables, fruits, cereals, legumes and dairy products.

Carbohydrates provide 50% of energy intake daily. Fruits and vegetables which are rich in fiber are also sufficient with vitamins and minerals.

Proteins provide 15% of the total energy. Protein helps regenerate tissue in the body. Protein-rich foods like eggs, milk, meat and fish contain more nutrients than that of plant origin like vegetables and cereals.

Practical tips

  • It is important not to skip your breakfast . Skipping breakfast or postponing food consumption over a number of long hours contributes to stimulate lipogenic enzymes, which promotes obesity (contrary to what people believe that skipping this first meal of the day means fewer calories and better weight control).
  • It is advisable to keep a schedule for each meal. The dinner is best done two hours before bedtime.
  • Drink at least two liters of water a day.
  • Limit your intake of alcoholic and soft drinks. Beverages with low alcohol, such as wine, can be consumed in moderation because they also contain cereals and fruits and these are rich in certain vitamins or chemicals that are beneficial to your health.
