OREANDA-NEWS One of the main principles of healthy eating is daily consumption of at least 400 grams of fruits and vegetables, in addition to potatoes, said experts of the Federal Service for the Oversight of Consumer Protection and Welfare.

In addition, it is recommended to replace saturated fats with unsaturated ones, completely eliminate industrial fats from the diet and eliminate or significantly reduce alcohol consumption.

According to experts, people today consume an excessive amount of foods high in calories, fats, free sugars and salt, but they eat few fruits, vegetables and other types of fiber, such as whole grains.

The Rospotrebnadzor added that calorie intake must be balanced with their consumption. It is better that fats give a maximum of 30% of the total energy consumed - for example, three tablespoons of vegetable oil or two avocados. Sugar should be less than 10% of the total energy consumed, and salt is better iodized - less than five grams per day.
