Should the tradition of “fattening up in autumn” be preserved? How to stick it to be healthy?

Every year in beginning of autumn, people begin to talk about [fattening up in autumn]: Do you want to fattening up in autumn? How to stick autumn fat? Eat what stick autumn fat? … …

Judging from the dictionary, fat is the layer of subcutaneous fat between skin and muscle, and sticking fat means long meat. There are also explanations that fat is [leather meat at the back of cow’s hypochondrium and at the front of cow’s hypochondrium].

Speaking of which, I’m afraid the enthusiasm of the ladies for fattening up in autumn will plummet. In fact, the common saying of cattle and horses [being fat and strong] is a state of full muscle and vitality, not the kind of fat with paunchy bellies.

Why is there a saying of “sticking to autumn fat”?

The saying of sticking to autumn fat comes from the era of low living standards. At that time, people were short of food, and it was difficult to grow meat and had too little subcutaneous fat.

Reason 1: Summer consumes a lot and loses weight.

In the hot summer, there is no air conditioner, no electric fan, sweating like a pig and losing appetite. I cut off another layer of the only subcutaneous fat and even lost my muscles due to the summer heat. When it comes to the beginning of autumn, it is very easy for the summer heat to subside and my appetite to recover, so I must remind myself to eat more.

Reason 2: Fall is rich in food,

Autumn is the harvest season. All kinds of food are increasingly abundant and there are enough nutritional resources to enjoy.

Reason 3: To cope with the cold and material shortage winter, we should make reserves.

After the beginning of autumn, the weather will turn cooler day by day. In order to cope with the cold winter, one must begin to enrich one’s muscles, reserve fat and keep warm against the cold. According to the old saying, if one does not reserve nutrition in autumn, one will suffer from various diseases if one does not have poor resistance in winter and spring.

Traditionally, you just wait to get fat.

Traditionally, the way to fatten up in autumn is to eat animal food and various pasta.

Stewed meat, scrambled eggs, fried balls, braised fish, fried eel shreds, steamed crabs, pancakes, dumplings, steamed buns… Anyway, all kinds of delicious things are a good choice for autumn fat.

The question is, the obesity rate of modern urbanites is so high, does everyone need to stick a few more kilos of fat on themselves in autumn? There is no need to increase fat, because we have enough resources in reserve.

Health stick autumn fat, to supplement nutrition according to demand

Living conditions have changed, and our nutrition should keep pace with the times. Instead of eating more big fish and meat and all kinds of pasta with oil as in the past, it is better to consider:

Is there any lack of what nutrition in summer? Do you really need what in autumn and winter? Then make up for it as needed.

Nutritional requirements: easy to lack vitamin A and B vitamins

Food Recommendations: Green leafy vegetables and orange vegetables, such as kale, spinach, cauliflower (west blue flower), carrot, pumpkin, etc.

Vegetables and fruits eaten in summer are often mainly melons, such as cucumbers, wax gourd, watermelons, melons, zucchini, tomatoes, peaches, etc. Generally speaking, the content of carotenoids is relatively low, and the content of B vitamins is also very low.

When autumn comes, vitamin A reserves in the body will decrease. If they are not supplemented in time, vitamin A deficiency problems such as dark vision decline, dry eyes and respiratory tract infection will easily occur in winter and spring, and folic acid and vitamin B2 deficiency will also easily occur.

Nutritional requirements: easy to poor appetite, gastrointestinal dyspepsia

Food Recommendation: Various fermented foods, including fermented flour foods, fermented fermented fermented glutinous rice, fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented fermented

In summer, people lose appetite and usually eat more cold drinks and sweet drinks. The digestive function of gastrointestinal tract is relatively weak. Therefore, in autumn, people with light weight and dyspepsia should eat more nutritious and digestive foods.

Fermented food has this advantage. During fermentation, microorganisms will produce a large number of Group B microorganisms. At the same time, the action of microorganisms eliminates the anti-nutritional factors in food, so that trace elements and various active substances in food can be better absorbed and utilized.

Nutritional Requirements: Supplement Various Minerals and Dietary Fiber to Prevent Chronic Diseases

Food Recommendation: Various Potato Produced in Autumn

Potato food is rich in B vitamins, potassium, magnesium and other minerals, and dietary fiber is relatively rich.

The ancients believed that they [nourish], probably because they are conducive to improving the digestion and absorption capacity of gastrointestinal tract; However, modern research believes that eating them as staple food is conducive to preventing chronic diseases such as hypertension.

Autumn is the peak season for potato production. I often eat some yams, sweet potatoes, taro, potatoes, etc. as substitutes for refined white rice flour. If it can be combined with other foods rich in protein, it is a very good healthy staple food.

Nutritional Requirements: Need to Supplement High Quality Protein

Food Recommendation: Various Eggs

Eggs have good protein quality and high fatty acid quality, contain 12 vitamins and are rich in lecithin, which are all nutrients that should be properly supplemented in autumn.

Moreover, the digestion and absorption rate of eggs is high, and the burden of gastrointestinal digestion is small when cooking lightly, which is especially an important source of nutrition for children.

Nutrition: Vitamin E and Trace Elements

Food Recommendation: Various Nuts

1 spoonful (15 ~ 25g) of nuts per day is good for heart health and can also provide vitamin E and various trace elements.

It is better not to stir-fry too dry or too dry, because the climate will become drier and drier after autumn. Eating more stir-fry nuts will make your throat uncomfortable.

It is recommended to use original raw food, spiced boiling and light roasting, such as unroasted walnut kernel, hazelnut, pine nut, spiced boiled peanut, light roasted almond, pistachio and cashew nuts.

Finally, I would like to emphasize that different physical conditions have different nutritional needs.

People with emaciated body, anemia, hypotension and fear of cold: It is recommended to eat beef and mutton properly when autumn is cool, and supplement iron-rich ingredients such as liver, heart and kidney with sufficient staple food when necessary, which is good for improving health and cold resistance.

There are already people with hyperlipidemia and fatty liver: there is no need to deliberately increase their appetite, but they can take the opportunity to exercise more to keep fit, so that the meat is firmer and the proportion of body fat is lower. Fat is not fat, at least stronger.
