Russians eating habits, which are incomprehensible to foreigners

A few years ago appeared on the expanses of the Internet story - a cry of despair of the Soviet and post-Soviet habits of eating. I must say that since then, little has changed, "Somehow we happened to write about something that infuriates. Firstly, it sincerely. All in this life is something in one degree or another are not satisfied. Someone to pain in the groin, someone - to slight itching.

I like a man who loves a relatively healthy lifestyle (I call him that because he does not always coincide with the precepts HLS) is extremely annoying, as some people prefer to eat. I'm not talking about vegans, vegetarians, fatties and other guys, I'm talking about a wholesale most citizens with bad food habits that are rooted in the traditional upbringing of the Soviet and post-Soviet period, where minus 100 g weight of the child was considered a disaster. Of course, all this stirred actively in sports, but now only a few sports indulge. And then on the couch or at the bar during the Olympics with a glass of foam. In this article, we will focus on bad eating habits, which are desperately holding on for you or your loved ones.

There are bread

"Without bread is impossible to get enough!" - what a stupid, man! "Eat with bread!", "Bread around the head!". A huge number of people may refuse from eating meat, fish, milk and dairy products, but the bread they give up very difficult. In one hand, a spoon in the other slice of bread - so eat a lot of citizens of the former USSR. In some ways, this is also dependent, without bread, people have a false sense of satiation, which depends on how close some of them scored stomachs.

Bread scores stomach is very good, plenty of carbohydrates and a light sweet taste in the mouth cause some habit to such a diet. In addition, many people feel satiety slight overeating, not a lack of hunger. Despite the fact that "the bread around the head", most of the species of bread is not helpful. During the processing of grain are removed almost all the useful, even an embryo, because the presence of fat in it is bad for storage. What remains, it is flour. There are whole wheat bread, bran have, but for a healthy diet is enough to give up bread or use it very little. I myself gave up bread, and I know it is not easy and very surprised people around, but it is effective, and I do not eat bread.

Tea, coffee and sugar are always

Sometimes I joke that got together with his wife due to the fact that sugar does not drink tea, both. It is not, of course, but these preferences are found in the spaces of our country very often. Recently sat with friends in a cafe, where there was a wide choice of tea, coffee and other beverages, have a coffee with specific kinds of toppings. Well, one man and his wife took the coffee with whipped cream and honey. Then he added in unbearably sweet three garbage bags of sugar. In my logical question: "Do not slipnetsya" - he was surprised and said: "Without the sugar! So tasty. "

Damn, and this is the bad habit from which many can not refuse. Sometimes, only one or two spoons to make something sweet, but some roll in a little more than dofiga sugar, which turns the drink into the syrup. As in the case of bread, many people are amazed at how you can not drink hot drinks with sugar. Experience shows that it is possible. Most good teas and coffees do not require sugar, they are good enough on their own. I do not drink tea and coffee with sugar for many years, perhaps, why I go to the dentist only for the prevention of dental fillings and I have not.

there late in the evening or even at night, under the pretext that you can not fall asleep

What kind of garbage, dude? You did not think your dream is disturbing, because the stomach works on digesting your last meal? Especially if it included meat, which traditionally is digested longer? It just so happens that we are slaves habits. When our stomach is full for the night, we feel more confident. This state of our body takes the norm, moreover, it is believed that this is a common self-hypnosis. Because I, too, suffered from this disease (and here almost all items have a direct relation to me), I can say with confidence that, when you do not have to relearn the night, sleep comes in the same mode at the same time becoming less disturbing. Moreover, when you throw there after six or eat fast carbs, nothing changes. Self-hypnosis, dude!

multi-piece meal

It's when you're going around the table and begin to eat. The first, second, salad, appetizer, and it all ends up the same dessert. The idea is that many lack, and the first, second with salad, they cram themselves in. But even when you're not sated the first, second and salad you exactly filled. But then, when the table will remove all traces of the banquet, you need to drink tea "with something delicious!" Disgusting habit. You consume calories in one sitting on a good "Big Tasty" from "McDuck", if not higher. I assure you, for the normal functioning enough second and lettuce, a bit of the first and second or just second.

I do not call to follow the calorie count and record them. I urge monitor the amount consumed, because overeating - it's disgusting. No matter how much you may say that you have a hard job, you can not round up all those calories without high-quality training. And they will turn into fat layers. You know, when the number of consumed, the first time is difficult and always want to eat, but then you get used to. The problem again is that such a meal laid out in our traditional education, which is also sensitive about the fact that there were some pieces of food on the plate, which frankly do not climb into the throat.

sweets after meals

Often in some catering after the order the main dishes we asked about whether we want to take something for tea. And many take. In the book "The Naked Ape" I read that the presence of the table of sweet element important for primates: this means that the meal was a success. This vestige. It can be overcome, if indulge in it. Consumption of sweet and starchy foods is always monitored. But sometimes, like, of course.

insatiable snacking

When you eat, the time goes unnoticed and pleasant. There - the fastest way to have fun. Once it so happened that most people think of eating only full meals, snacks and here we seem weightless. Needless to say, as far as it is not so? Because of snacking at work in the form of cupcakes, bagels, nuts per day is dialed just over dofiga calories. We even had a post about snacks.
