What is the Chinese diet

The goal of the Chinese diet is to maintain a balance between yang and yin. In the Chinese diet Yang includes hot products such as: onions, mutton, garlic, nuts, peppers, butter, pepper, smoked fish, coffee, chocolate, curry and chili spices. Jin, on the other hand, are cold products such as ice cream, cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, tofu, duck meat, honey, dairy products, apples, bananas, pears, grapes, watermelons, mushrooms. An excess of products from one of these groups can cause an imbalance in the body. Therefore, it is worth compiling a menu of products that are exchanged with Yang and then with Yin. For example, when you eat yang food from lunch, eat yin food for dessert.

You should drink a glass of water every day before breakfast to cleanse your bowels. In addition, Chinese medicine recommends drinking two cups of green tea a day. You must not overeat to your heart’s content.

  • Fatty foods (including fried foods);
  • processed, preserved, preserved;
  • containing artificial sweeteners, colors and flavors;
  • red meat (it is better to replace it with fish);
  • prepared meals (microwave).

Every diet should be used properly. Diet is often confused with starvation and food restriction. Just because we eat doesn’t mean we’re on a diet. If we want to change the menu and go on a diet, it is best to go to a specialist who will help us create a menu that is good for our body. We must not forget that we can harm ourselves with a diet we have created for ourselves.
