In the autumn and winter seasons, the body needs more energy, so you need to eat more fat and oil, as well as cereals. This was told by a nutritionist Alexei Kalinchev.

He explained that during a cold snap, the overall need for calories increases and the proportions within the BJU are redistributed. The expert recalled that energy is needed to maintain body temperature. After all, the more you are in the cold, the more calories you need.

“In the cold season, you need to add more animal fat to the diet. Fatty meat, lard, butter, sour cream, for example. More complex carbohydrates. Buckwheat, brown rice, barley and so on, Kalinchev said in an interview with URA.RU.

According to the expert, together they give long satiety and better health, which is important for a comfortable stay in the cold. The specialist also urged not to go on a diet in the cold. He recommended cutting calories by no more than 10% of the norm. A large deficiency of fat can only harm the body. The doctor pointed out that with a normal calorie ratio, a person will feel good, will not be hungry. In addition, the ability to tolerate physical activity will not be affected.

As we previously wrote, nutritionist Lyudmila Denisenko said, is it possible to eat and lose weight at the same time.
