Nutrition advice

Never confuse appetite with hunger. Take meals only when you are hungry.

Hunger – is a voice coming out of you asking for food to support normal condition of the organism.

Appetite – is you habit. It can depend on different factors – a definite time of day (“13:00 lunch time”), smell and appearance of food (“what a nice cake…”) etc.

Sometimes appetite is accompanied by the feeling of emptiness in stomach, oppression, general weakness. But root cause is psychological. And if you feel weak it does not mean that you are on last legs.

Thus, hunger – is a real nutritional requirement based on physiology of human body. Whereas appetite – is only aspiration to food which is the result of interaction of several factors.

Remember – the best time for digestion is from 11 to 14 and from 16 to 20.


Drink water instead of food.

In the morning, not later than half an hour before breakfast take at least one glass of warm water. Fresh lemon juice can be added. During the day try to drink a liter of water, this will provide better digestion and decrease hunger.
