One of the most common problems is metabolic syndrome, which is characterized by the disturbance of metabolism, appears most often overweight, deposition of excess fat or water accumulation in the subcutaneous tissue (pastoznost). And metabolic bone, in particular, calcium, phosphorus, leaching of calcium deposits it in the wrong place, that is, the development of osteoporosis. Often the metabolic syndrome is a precursor to the development of many diseases, in particular diabetes of 2-nd degree, diseases of heart and vessels, etc.


Since metabolic syndrome in lockstep walks with growth rates of obesity, metabolic syndrome is observed in 25-30% of the population and, in particular, half of those over 60.
Metabolic syndrome "says" about me health problems, in particular:

- weight gain and deposition of excess fat, especially in the abdomen,

- high blood pressure (more than 135/85 mm RT. Art.),

- increase of a level of fats (lipids) in the blood level of triglycerides in the blood prandial from 150 mg/DL and above)

- metabolic sugar in the body (an indicator of blood sugar on an empty stomach from 100 mg/DL),
- low "good" cholesterol (cholesterol, high-density) in the blood and improve the "bad" and other

If there is at least three of these symptoms, it is likely the presence of metabolic syndrome and, consequently, the risk of developing diabetes and diseases of the heart and blood vessels.

Other obvious symptoms of the metabolic syndrome should include increased appetite and thirst, easy fatigue, shortness of breath.


The metabolic syndrome is affected by a genetic predisposition, age, and what and how much we eat, what way of life are little or move a lot, etc. in Other words, if you've inherited a property of the body to store fat around the waist, to not become a candidate for the acquisition of the metabolic syndrome, efforts should be made to prevent it.

People who are prone to accumulation of fat in the abdominal area are genetically increased risk of developing metabolic syndrome, because the fat in this area and the metabolic syndrome is directly related to each other. The fact that the fat accumulation in this place are largely not in subcutaneous fat, and to the so-called abdominal (there are more scientific name - visceral), which is contained in the internal organs and is dangerous from the point of view of health.

He is able to generate specific hormonal activity in this area, which in turn causes biochemical reactions leading to metabolic disorders. This reduces the body's sensitivity to insulin, increased production of "bad" cholesterol (cholesterol of low density). Cholesterol plaque buildup in the arteries and lead to circulatory disorders, high blood pressure and diseases of the heart.


Do you want to change the way of life, to give preference to a healthy diet and regular physical activity.
In no case do not advise to completely switch to vegetarian food, because in that way we consume it, it does not provide the necessary minerals, vitamins, amino acids. In the diet should be introduced protein sources that do not contain a large number of harmful fats, such as chicken and Turkey breast, fish, low-fat dairy products, egg whites. Get enough protein in the diet is required for long satiety, and to restore all body tissues. Therefore, going on a vegetable diet, there is also much to gain extra pounds due to the lack of nutrients, in particular protein that enters the body with meat.

People with metabolic syndrome who gave up meat, one must have a menu, eggs, dairy products, fish, cheese, cereals. Regarding the cheese, then it is best to eat after heat treatment (bake grandmother, to make cakes and so on).
One of the tasks power is reduced levels of "bad" cholesterol in the blood, which is directly connected with the accumulation of fat. It is established that this is a consequence of improper cooking of food, in particular frying in vegetable oil; and sharp restriction of the use of cholesterol-food - for example, switching over to vegetable oil. Then your liver begins to synthesize "bad" cholesterol, because you just don't give her a "good"! And in our body cholesterol is a precursor for the synthesis of sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone) and hormones for pain is part of the myelin sheaths of nerve. Therefore, you expose your body to suffering.

Relatively sweets, variety of pastries, cakes is used in specific cases, on holiday, and not keep them at home constantly. I recommend simply don't buy them. If you really want something sweet, it is better to eat a box of chocolate, a spoonful of jam or honey.
In addition, the power should be introduced Apple cider vinegar: it is a source of potassium, iodine, many microelements, essential in metabolic processes. To dissolve 1-2 tsp. natural Apple vinegar (9% alcohol) in a glass of water, add 1 teaspoon of honey and drink in the morning, in the evening. If you have gastritis change - a glass to drink during the day. But Apple cider vinegar take courses for 14 days and then make a weekend break.

In the metabolic syndrome also use herbal remedies that are picked individually, taking into account related diseases.
Regarding the use of liquid, it is advised to drink water in small portions (100-120 ml) in the intervals between meals, then the kidneys will be faster it from the body, preventing edema. The amount of water you should drink per day, on average 1.5-2 l in winter and up to 3 l - summer. And, in my opinion, it is better not to consume water only, but in teas, fruit drinks, soups, etc. Because if we add another 2 l of water to the liquid consumed in the food, you will increase the volume of circulating blood, and in people with metabolic syndrome is a huge strain on the heart.

Tea is recommended to eat black (but not small), and coffee natural honey, sugar - who else loves, with cinnamon, cardamom, etc. right now, in the summer, will be useful stewed fruits of our dried fruits (dried apples, pears, plums), you can add raisins. They contain a lot of potassium and a good influence on the work of the heart. Regarding mineral water - it is recommended cautiously, cycles, depending on the prescription and only in places where there are sources and not from a bottle. Can water revitalize silicon or filter green clay: 1 tsp. clay diluted in 200 ml of water, in 5-10 min it will settle to the bottom. Water should be drunk during the day. But I drink this water courses.


To reduce their weight should not be used in various exhausting diets that provide only short-term results, and fail again, rapid weight gain. I do not recommend to go to the extreme, fascinated by dieting plans for quick weight loss, but only to limit dietary needs. The thing is that during the diet, the body is a kind of stress when these food restrictions over, the man comes out of the diet, stress disappears and rapidly recover the same weight. As usual diet is based on the limit, people practically deprives itself full of protein.

And I recommend that, on the contrary, in the morning, eat a healthy Breakfast that will provide human calories for a long time. This can be, for example, porridge made from wheat, perlovich, oats and other cereals (150 g), and not from the flakes that need to chew, you can boiled eggs (then porridge 100 g). Our body requires one egg a day. You can cook pasta durum or fish baked with vegetables etc. Fresh salads is better in the second half of the day or for lunch. If you really want a sandwich, then eat it not earlier than 2 hours after Breakfast or lunch.

Also, I advise you not to go to bed with hunger, and 2 hours before sleep, to eat steamed vegetables or salad, or dairy products, even pilaf, otherwise the body will be in the "hungry" state. An important condition for reducing weight and keeping it at a certain level is the consumption of dishes often and in small portions, 100-150 g, not more often than every 2 hours. Fast food (sandwiches and rolls) are also not get carried away, because then the body without decent food, as in "time of war", will delay the excess as fat.


Pay physical activity for 30 to 60 minutes a day 5-7 times a week. This does not need to run! Brisk walking, swimming, Biking also give good results. Move more during the day. If your working day you spend in the office at the table, try to arrange a 5-10-minute breaks for warm-UPS.
A balanced diet combined with regular physical activity - guarantee of success. However, to get rid of the internal fats should, after consultation, or under the supervision of an endocrinologist or nutritionist.
