You try to follow a healthy diet and now, a little before summer, you have one more reason to take care of your figure. You limit fattening ingredients and change the way you cook.

And if you are not sure how to do the right thing, Georgia Kapoli, Clinical Dietitian – Nutritionist, MSc will reveal everything you need to know.

The most healthy cooking methods are steaming, oven and pot. And of course this depends a lot on the amount of oil and salt that will be used in the food. But the best way to cook vegetables is to steam them, in order to keep a higher percentage of vitamins.

What to pay attention to when grilling (grilled meat):

You can marinate it or simply add it foods with antioxidants (lemon, vinegar, natural spices, etc.), which neutralize carcinogens (heterocyclic amines and polyaromatic hydrocarbons) that develop during baking.

In any case, eating a rich seasonal salad at the same time will provide you with additional fiber, which binds and expels the fat you took in from the meat.

How to reduce the increased amount of salt in food and salad:

You add aromatic herbs, lemon, vinegar, light spices and natural seasonings to food and salads.

Pay attention to the type of oil you use in cooking: Many people think that in order to lose weight they have to cut out oil. However, olive oil is the best choice of cooking fat thanks to its high content of monounsaturated “good” fatty acids. “Good” fats increase satiety and absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. However, due to the high caloric content, care should be taken with the amount of consumption.
