Stating that the newly cut meat can cause problems in terms of digestion, Lecturer. See. Elif Üner, “For this reason, it is important for the functioning of the digestive system to rest the slaughtered meat for at least 1 day. Heart diseases threaten individuals in this process, especially due to the cholesterol content of meat dishes with a high fat content. Saturated fats can cause cardiovascular blockages and heart attacks in the long term. I recommend individuals with a history of heart disease to be careful during this period and not to consume more red meat than normal.”
PREFER SALAD VARIETIES WITH THE MEAT
Stating that meat should be supported with various side foods, Üner said, “Although the richness of the holiday menus is suitable for small meals, it is important that the menus are balanced in terms of content and calories. In addition to meat dishes, salad varieties rich in greens should be preferred rather than rice pilaf and desserts with plenty of syrup.
WALK BEFORE MEAL
Uner says, “The holiday period should not be considered as a reward only in terms of nutrition,” and added, “Instead of eating only during the holidays, brisk movements such as walking and small holiday programs such as escaping from the intense work tempo are recommended. Brisk walks before meals in the morning or evening will increase the rate of endorphins and reduce the desire to consume sugar in main meals.
DON’T GO INTO THE SUN IMMEDIATELY AFTER LUNCH
Üner said, “Be careful to rest for 1-2 hours in a cool environment instead of going out in the sun right after lunch. Because when the darkening of the blood and the increase in blood pressure that will occur after a heavy meal are added to the sweltering sun rays at noon, health problems such as rhythm disturbance, high blood pressure and clotting can develop.
