Not Everyone Can Benefit from Fasting: Geneticist and Microbiologist Lyudmyla Goncharova
The Lent starts on March 2. How safe is the refusal of meat products to the body? Lyudmyla Goncharova, a geneticist with 15 years of experience and the author of a unique health improvement and weight loss method, reveals what can replace animal derived materials and whom such a diet is contraindicative to.
You should consult a physician before fasting, the expert stresses. Exclusion of meats results in the increasing consumption of carbohydrates, which can have a negative impact on the pancreas gland.
The dietarian believes that the human body needs animal protein. It can be replaced with certain plant products:
green lentils (it contains plenty of protein);
mushrooms (they should be cooked properly – within several minutes);
soy cheese and other soy goods.
“Fish is crucial to us. Try to eat fish at least twice a week,” Lyudmyla mentions.
The following categories of people should refuse severe limitations:
pregnant women – animal protein is required for correct fetation;
kids – protein food restrictions are contraindicative to the growing body;
teenagers – protein is necessary for endocrine profile formation and reproductive system health;
individuals with chronic inflammatory diseases, including diabetes mellitus, dethyroidism, vein problems. They should not limit nutrition without the doctor’s advice.
She also recommends to consume wholegrain porridges during fasting: “Grinded grains are useless for our body. Moreover, they become nutrients for bacteria, viruses and fungi in the intestines.”
On March 26, Lyudmyla Goncharova will talk about nutrition based on a genetic type as well as explain how to keep healthy and active at Biohacking Conference Kyiv.
