Dietitian: fasting is not equivalent to starvation


Fasting is a voluntary waiver of something, but it is not the same as hunger. It is important to pay attention to your protein and iron intake, in order to avoid deficiencies, said dietitian Bernadett Muzsnai.


Beginning on Wednesday, Forty Day Lent, Christians are preparing for Passover, the resurrection of Jesus. The church has lightened the rules of fast, but it is a severe fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday: members between the ages of 18 and 60 can only stay three times a day before this day. do not consume meat during fasting discipline. What is being asked is the deeper conviction that fasting, sacrifice, helps a person to be spiritually united with the true sacrifice, Jesus Christ.
Bernadett Muzsnai said on the M1 channel that flesh abandonment can be patched with other types of animal food, cheese, cheese and eggs. Whoever eliminates these and goes for some sort of a vegetarian diet can use the legumes, beans, chickpeas, oilseeds to supply the body with much needed protein.
It is also important to pay attention to iron supplementation, which can be found, for example, in the target or in yeast - added the dietitian.
The specialist pointed out that - and this is taken seriously by religions - Children under the age of 14, the elderly, pregnant women, nursing mothers, and patients with chronic diseases were not advised to fast.
The principle of incremental importance is also important in the purges of penitence but also of religion. Immediate withdrawal is not good for the body, so it is recommended that you gradually - with the reduction of doses, and the abandonment of more and more unhealthy foods - begin with such things, begun, learned, informed, dietitian.
