From childhood we are taught that sit at the table must necessarily directly, to avoid distorted spine, and back does not hurt. But British scientists have challenged this assertion is more useful to sit “lounging.” At least the computer.
According to their research, to sit while working at the computer more useful, relaxed and leaning back. And all because, according to British radiologists that straight posture while sitting can cause unnecessary stress and unnecessary strain on the spine. Because of this chronic pain can occur when the displacement of an intervertebral disc.
And the most comfortable position that will keep your spine healthy and – in a relaxed sit on a chair at an angle of 135 degrees. Uncomfortable, you might say. Perhaps, but such a pose, according to the researchers, the most physiological as opposed to straight or hunched back. In such a situation on the spinal discs are not under pressure, so they do not move. But, of course, the chair should be comfortable to be able to relax.
According to the head of research Wasim Bashir, “a situation in which the body is under the 135-degree angle – the most comfortable posture to sit a long time. – In office workers, schoolchildren and students an opportunity to prevent back problems by adjusting the position of the spine. Between so, according to statistics from the back pain of varying severity affects 80 percent of Britons, says MP.
“This posture – reclining, leaning on a 135 degrees – has long been known manual therapists and masseurs – commented on the doctor-kinizeterapevt, MD, Sergey Bubnovsky. – This is the so-called relaxation pose. It is often used during the massage shoulders and neck. If seat and back are still high, then you will inevitably fall asleep, if you try to work in such a position, because that’ll affect the relaxation terms in the cervical region. Although, of course, the back muscles in this position almost no strain.
But I would advise all the same work, sitting on a chair with a straight back, and every 40 minutes, at the very recline 135 degrees. Sit in this position a few minutes will be more useful than to stay the whole time. And so the muscles do not relax, take a five-minute charge for the back – stretch, cave, take a few are not sharp slopes. Then accurately and distracted, and muscle tone lead, and blood stagnant overclocking. That contribute to mental process. ”
“Knife and fork, we dig his own grave,” – said the Frenchman. But the Frenchman was not right – not as important as what is.
Why do we eat? In order to live. Share your thoughts with Neanderthal man – he will certainly share your point of view, and will respect you very much – well, genius, and only.
If we eat to live, it would not be eating it and not so much. Why do we eat, horrible, and why so many? Because it’s delicious! When we were savages, all that was delicious, then – and useful. But the progress of science has not bypassed the food industry, and we eat almost poison, and get pleasure.
But why so much? For modern man the food serves two functions: first, we take food for fun, when we go to the movies, the theater, watch television, read a detective story. We have variety of food, season with its variety of spices and seasonings, are trying to diversify the environment in which it consume: food at a party, meal in a restaurant, eating outdoors, eating by candlelight. There is a prestigious food that we are trying to eat (or drink) at someone’s eyes – so jealous.
For some people, food is becoming a cult, some of it fall into dependence. And for most of us it is more or less, and has elements of worship and dependence. The first step towards a healthy diet – is to realize that we are abusing food. Just like some of the abuse of alcohol, nicotine, drugs, sex, gambling, etc. etc. Abuse can be anything that is fun (at least in the beginning). Many, such as abusing the internet (but it’s a plot for another novel.)
Well, what about this business tie? Quit – scary, but suddenly die of hunger somewhere. But it was thrown right. As the long-term experience of psychologists who work with all kinds of addictions, abruptly quit – the most optimal form of termination, whether it be drug or unrequited love.
Well, now the fun part: how to use this very effective method – a sharp cast, in the case of abuse of food, it really is going to die if you quit. And here and there! If you throw the mind, on the contrary become healthy and beautiful, and you will be sexually active to 120 years old.
Throwing should not all but only those product categories that are not needed or even harmful. Success here depends on three factors.
First, you need not to reduce, and throw it!
Secondly, the attitude has to be completely analogous to the mood of a man throwing a drink or smoke – the determination to endure the initial discomfort and, in spite of everything, to succeed.
Thirdly, you need to know exactly what products can and should get rid of, and which not. This, I think I can help you to understand.
I studied the results of research conducted mainly English-speaking professionals: scientists, nutritionists and other doctors, in general, those who knows – what to eat, but from what should be abandoned. According to the results of this study, I broke all the products into three groups according to the following principle:
A. Products, the use of which there is no doubt (eg, fruits and vegetables).
Two. Products for which opinions differ (eg, products of animal origin: meat, milk, etc.).
Three. Foods that are considered harmful or, at least, are useless (sugar, white flour).
Today we will talk about the band number 3, as it was with this group will need to engage. It is important to note that control the amount of food consumed is not required. Overeating, of course, it is not necessary, but if you have removed or harmful waste products from your diet and you lose weight and get healthier.
Sugar. There are different interpretations of essentially the same opinion. Some call the sugar – “white death”, others – “sweet death” and the third – the “slow death”.
In recent statements, I do not agree: just ask any diabetic. Diabetes, which can be called disease of the century, it is most likely to occur from the misuse of sugar and other easily decomposable carbohydrates, such, for example, starch. Its decomposition begins in the mouth.
Diabetes affects approximately 7% of the population, another 15% have preddiabeticheskoe state, and most of them do not even realize.
The problem is that sugar and starch vsasyvyutsya very quickly, getting into the bloodstream and causing a storm of insulin, which then rapidly subsides. Thus, the system is incapacitated insulin response.
Sugar and starch are contraindicated for people with any neurological and psychiatric disorders. This is especially true of people with emotional disorders (manic-depressive, borderline syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, depression, Dessima). Is there something useful in sugar? Nothing, zero.
Salt, which is blamed on the fact we need. The truth is 15 times lower than the average person it consumes. Let’s say you ate at a restaurant or at a party, eat pickles and sauerkraut, and more than enough. In general, the smaller the better. And if we were talking about salt, the sea – the best, this is actually a set of salt, while sodium chloride, sodium chloride only. Conclusion: forget about the salt, and sea consume in moderation.
But let us return back to our sheep. Refined sugar (this is the correct name of what we call a “sugar”) does not contain anything: neither vitamins nor minerals. Molasses – waste of sugar processing just contains minerals and vitamins.
Sugar feeds the bacteria, and, incidentally, is not the best of them. For example, in the mouth feed on sugar Streptococcus mutans bacteria and the like, waste of life which is an acid that destroys tooth enamel. Almost all diseases of the oral cavity are bacterial in nature. And they eat the bacteria just carbohydrates: sugars and starches – their favorite foods. By the way, in addition to acids, they still emit gases that are known to be not very pleasant smell.
The second most harmful product after sugar – starch. Again, the most harmful of its shape – refined – white flour, or rather all of it done. By the way, white rice (as opposed to brown) also fall into this category. No vitamins or minerals – pure calories.
It should be noted that the abuse of carbohydrates leads to dysbacteriosis – change bowel flora, which in turn leads to quite a number of undesirable consequences, but the detail about this another time.
There are carbohydrates, which is very desirable not to get involved (potatoes, wholemeal bread, brown rice). But we are not talking about it, but about which products should generally be avoided. For example:
confectionery – candy, cakes, ice cream, etc.;
pastries – muffins, pizza, cakes, etc.;
I should note that while we were discussing various harmful products that people poison themselves, scientists have come up with new, more effective poisons, which are conveniently placed on supermarket shelves. They are located in the central part of the store, away from the refrigerator and freezer. Packing them, I must say, very pleasant, promising a quiet, intimate pleasure, and they are called – of processed foods. They contain a number of ingredients, which is something we need to know.
First, they often do not sweeten with sugar and corn syrup. The world is relative: Corn syrup is faster than refined sugar, but more slowly than strychnine.
A bottle of Pepsi-Cola dropped from the tenth floor, and fallen right on the head, will cause less damage than drunk. So, throw it in the garbage disposal.
Well, that is useful in the industrially processed foods? Little or nothing. Enzymes have left them at the very beginning of the refining process, but to its left end, and vitamins. Omega-3 there was never, as the ingredients have been produced by industrial agriculture, and contain little useful (and a lot of harm) before the industrial processing. The manufacturer can sometimes add vitamins to brag about it, there is – on the packaging. But vitamins are usually one of those who need us the least, so do not be fooled.
But the product must be tasty, look and smell good, and thus preserved for a long time. If you try this “delicacy” somewhere in the middle of its industrial processing, you will not want to eat it, and even naoborot.Chtob this from happening, add corn to it poison (sorry – syrup), artificial colorings and flavorings (sometimes natural drop , then to write about it on the package, so you do not come as a shock), and of course preservatives. The latter add a little, but enough to kill all bacteria in one bag with the product well, and in the next, just in case, too. The bacteria is because of what products are perishable, but they are living beings like us, so that’s what kills them, we are also unlikely to be useful.
Trans-fats (which are the degree of toxicity can be put to the same location as the corn syrup, if not higher) are formed naturally during the industrial processing of natural fats. However, make sure you take your dose, they also added in the form of partially hydrogenated oils (there is nothing to do strychnine).
Salt does not put a spare, because it is delicious.
Moral of the story: no matter how useful was the original product, the raspolezny vegetable, if it was an intensive industrial processing, we have not entertained them, even our political opponents, as we have a sense of compassion.
Now about the mental attitude. If it is difficult to imagine the rest of his life without any let harmful, but the hot favorite foods, wrap with a contract. Eat these foods as a normal person (non-alcoholic) consumed alcohol – 150 grams for the holidays. If you manage to limit yourself that way – well, if not (every day a holiday) – tie completely, at least for a certain period, say one year.
And finally: I do not know of any state, any illness, chronic or not, in which the above-mentioned diet would be contraindicated. But as they say in such cases: consult a doctor.
