Humans are certainly a part of nature. With the coming of summer, we start to feel restless, to wake up excitedly every morning and to look at life in a much more optimistic manner.
However, this change is not entirely pain-free in humans as in the rest of nature. The growing of a seed, the slow blossoming of trees. In short, it takes time for living beings to get ready for summer. Just like nature and other creatures, humans must also be prepared for summer.
During this preparation phase;
- Remember that the change in air may make you ill.
- Welcome summer in fine fettle.
- Exercise and take walks in the country to overcome summer fatigue.
- Ensure that summer enters your house.
- Enjoy the sun.
Incorrect diets done while entering summer with the purpose of losing weight in a short period of time and looking thinner may cause various health problems. The most important of these problems are cardiac conditions and some of these effects are;
Fasting for a long time cause fluctuations in blood pressure and glucose levels.
Weight that is re-gained rapidly after discontinuing crash diets increases the risk of diabetes.
Sudden weight losses and gains increase the risk of heart attack.
Protein diets may disrupt the cholesterol balance.
Sudden increases in exercise increase the risk of heart attack.
In order to lose weight healthily;
Complement your healthy feeding program with exercise, avoid eating too much fat and sugar, adopt a feeding regime based on water, fruits, vegetables and whole grains with a higher vitamin and mineral content during hot weather, decrease the consumption of caffeinated and alcoholic drinks.
Always remember to increase your water consumption. On sunny days when the elderly and the children are especially at risk, lots of fruits, vegetables, cheese and yogurt must be consumed as sodium, potassium and magnesium ensure the fluid-electrolyte balance in the body.
The incidence of diarrhea increases during summer and ample water consumption is of vital importance in case of diarrhea. Unfortunately, there are many babies and toddlers dying of dehydration in Turkey. For this reason, parents should be especially vigilant. Thus, they should not be outside during the hottest hours.
Lastly, remember to apply a moisturizer or sun lotion with sun protection factor on your face and body to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun.
Much as we are overjoyed by the coming of summer, we should be more careful and take care of our health and skin. I wish everyone a joyous summer.
