“Autumn is a perfect season to start a diet that helps us lose weight or rebalance our dietary lifestyle. After the summer that brings with it some gastronomic excess linked to greater conviviality, some more pizza, some alcohol in excess, aperitifs and after dinner, together with less regulated habits, this could be the right time for good intentions, helped by the psychological push of the ‘restart’ of usual activities “. She explains it to Adnkronos Salute Silvia Barrucco, nutritionist and thermal doctor at the Terme di Chianciano. Clearly, continues the expert, “there is no standard right period: starting a diet still means putting ourselves in a condition of change in our lifestyle, therefore something very profound, even intimate. Food choices, in fact, have to do with our habits, with our family, even with our emotions. So choosing to ‘go on a diet’ is not so trivial, if you are aiming for a real change. In this perspective there is no right time , everyone finds the right moment within himself, when he finds the right motivation. But it is certainly true that, once the summer is over, returning to the routine at work, at school, it is more frequent that one says to oneself: ‘ ok now I really change something in my life ‘”. Spas can help” both emotionally and practically “, says Barrucco,” especially when you can use waters that help purify the liver which, if it works better not only favors the dig estione, but also the intestinal hollow, and intestinal problems are often widespread in the population. Helping the liver lays the foundation for better digesting food. Digesting better means optimizing the nutritional absorption of what we eat. And therefore we are also able to reduce the amount of food eaten. I optimize what I eat “. With thermal treatments therefore,” it is possible to ‘enhance’ the diet or allow an important starter, starting from a targeted nutritional approach, accompanied by the right amount of physical activity. Cleansing is definitely a way to get started on the right foot, “she concludes.
