A dieta purificadora

by Frank Laporte-Adamski

Purificar o intestino sem sacrifícios. O princípio-base da Dieta Purificadora é muito simples: quem comer bem terá uma boa digestão. E uma boa digestão é o segredo para uma vida melhor. <p> <p>«Os nutricionistas classificam os alimentos de acordo com a sua composição nutricional. Eu divido-os segundo a velocidade dos mesmos no trato intestinal. Os alimentos devem passar pelo tubo digestivo antes de serem absorvidos. Diferentes estudos demostraram que o intestino é o nosso segundo cérebro, onde se encontram as defesas imunológicas. É, por isso, muito importante não obstruir os órgãos digestivos: nos últimos trinta anos, estes são os princípios fundamentais que serviram de base ao meu método.» Tudo o que comemos deixa resíduos nas paredes do tubo digestivo, o que acaba por o irritar ou, no pior dos casos, por o entupir. O corpo sente-se pesado, menos activo e mais exposto a distúrbios como, por exemplo, dores nas costas, enxaquecas, insónias e problemas circulatórios. Durante mais de trinta anos, o naturopata e osteopata Frank Laporte-Adamski promoveu um método destinado a tratar melhor o «segundo cérebro» que temos na barriga e do qual dependem não apenas a digestão mas também 70% das funções do nosso sistema imunológico. Qual é o princípio subjacente da Dieta Purificadora? <p><p>Comer separadamente os alimentos de digestão rápida (30 minutos) e os desacelerados ou de digestão lenta (4-5 horas). É essencial evitar a combinação de alimentos rápidos e lentos: se estes se misturam, os tempos de digestão aumentam em grande escala, o sistema digestivo não pode eliminar completamente os resíduos e a acumulação de toxinas prejudica outros órgãos. Para além desta divisão dos alimentos, Adamski sugere o exercício físico, que estimula o diafragma, massaja a barriga e é essencial para reactivar a circulação sanguínea e reduzir o inchaço abdominal.

by Connie Isla

Una de las influencers veganas argentinas de mayor crecimiento cuenta su viaje profundamente personal, un recorrido que va desde su temprana pasión por distintas formas de expresión artística hasta su experiencia de autodescubrimiento y su entrega completa a la causa feminista y a la lucha por un estilo de vida sustentable. Hola. Soy Connie, y quiero agradecerte que tengas mi libro en tus manos. Vengo a proponerte que me acompañes en un viaje, un viaje personal y revelador. Un recorrido por algunas cosas que hice en mi vida, gracias a las cuales me caí, me levanté, reflexioné, aprendí, cambié y entendí que está en nuestras manos hacer de este un mundo mejor. Y que para eso primero es necesario estar dispuestos a conocer, a cuestionarnos y saber algunas cosas que a veces preferiríamos no saber: de dónde viene eso que comemos, quién hizo las prendas con las que nos vestimos, cuánto tarda en degradarse esa botella de plástico que usamos y desechamos, y por qué a veces miramos para otro lado cuando se nos presenta esa verdad incómoda. Espero que acá encuentres no sólo respuestas, sino también preguntas, así como también herramientas para ayudarte a transitar este camino largo pero poderoso. Porque la información es poder, y tenemos el poder de cambiar el mundo. Sí, vos, una sola persona, aunque te cueste creerlo. Cada pequeña acción cuenta. Necesitamos acercarnos un poco más. Tener más compasión. Más conciencia. Más empatía. Más amor. Más luz, por favor.

El método No Dieta: Cómo reconocer tus emociones para comer mejor

by Mónica Katz Valeria Sol Groisman

El manejo de las emociones y de otros obstáculos son fundamentales a la hora de emprender una dieta porque de eso depende que podamos encarar un cambio en nuestra forma de alimentarnos. A diez años de No Dieta. Puentes entre la alimentación y el placer, Mónica Katz junto con su hija Valeria Sol Groisman continúa profundizando su revolucionario trabajo sobre la alimentación, que indaga no solo en lo que comemos sino también en las razones para realizar una dieta. Esos mismos motivos pueden ser las causas para abandonar un régimen. Las estrategias para perder peso, casi todas restrictivas, fracasan porque se concentran en la comida. En este libro, las autoras ponen el foco en esos otros factores que hacen que una dieta no funcione: las emociones, los fanatismos, la información de los medios de comunicación y las redes sociales, y los mitos alimentarios. "Estoy cansada -dice Katz- de ver desfilar pacientes y conocidos que han invertido años, esfuerzo, batallas familiares y dinero en dietas de moda, y están más gordos que nunca. [...] Por más que reformulemos los alimentos, que regulemos su calidad, sus porciones, su publicidad, por más de que mejoremos el acceso a la actividad física y al juego como derecho de grandes y chicos, si no enseñamos que las emociones son necesarias (por eso mismo no deberíamos taparlas con comida), seguiremos sin hallar soluciones". El método No Dieta nos ofrece las herramientas para escuchar nuestras emociones, modificar nuestros hábitos y tener una alimentación saludable sin fracasar en el intento.

β-Casomorphins: A1 Milk, Milk Peptides and Human Health

by Mohammad Raies Ul Haq

This book compiles the latest research on the A1 and A2 forms of cow milk, and attempts to show a correlation between the type of cow milk consumption and reported incidence of certain diseases (type 1 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular diseases, sudden infant death syndrome and neurological disorders). Cow milk generally contains two types of β-casein, A1 or A2. The book describes the A1/A2 hypothesis, its foundation and the genetics behind it. It discusses the two forms of milk and why one is considered more harmful than the other. Seeking to provide a balanced view of the milk types, the book’s initial chapters highlight the structure, function and physiological activity of β-casomorphins. Subsequent sections describe the health concerns associated with A1 milk, and the various case studies and research surrounding it. In turn, the arguments against the hypothesis put forward by EFSA, American Nutritionists and Truswell are also highlighted. The book does not make any recommendations for dairy consumers; rather, it is a collection of essential data both in favour and against the hypothesis. Further mechanistic studies involving well-designed animal and human trials at the cellular, molecular, biochemical and immunological levels will be needed in order to draw sound conclusions. Overall, the hypothesis is fascinating, and possibly significant. However, verified and authenticated research with reproducible results is needed to make final consumer recommendations. This timely book offers a valuable resource for researchers and students of dairy science, as well as industry experts.
