How do you assess your appearance? Do not you notice that you began to look more tired than usual, or, perhaps, someone already told you about it? If so, then we ask the following question: are you sure that you eat right?
After all, it may very well be that you yourself spoil your beauty, including in your diet products, because of which you look tired.
You will most likely think that the fault is overwork at work or lack of sleep, but be aware that nutrition is the determining factor that you should always pay close attention to if you want to look good.
Think about it.
It is recommended if not to completely exclude them from their diet, then at least to limit their consumption as much as possible.
Your appearance will change dramatically!
1. Fried and deep-fried food
One of the most “dangerous” foods in this sense, negatively affecting our appearance, are deep-fried or fried. Unfortunately, they are also the most common.
Starting from popcorn in movies and ending with cutlets, the recipe of which your mother gave you, fried food is always at hand.
Regardless of the product that undergoes such heat treatment, it will contain a huge amount of trans fats and oils, which, in turn, will greatly slow down all the processes taking place in your body.
The body will need to expend more energy to digest such food.
In addition, fried foods are the most common cause of artery occlusion and the development of obesity. And if this is not enough to reduce its consumption, then we can note that excessive consumption of vegetable oils will negatively affect the condition of your skin, because they destroy the collagen necessary to it, overdry the skin even with sufficient water intake, contributes to the appearance of acne.
Agree, it sounds somewhat contradictory: coffee, which provides us with a charge of energy and vivacity, makes us look more tired.
But you were wondering, what does this “extra” energy mean for our body?
In fact, caffeine has both advantages and disadvantages. It is recommended, for example, to drink one cup of coffee an hour before the start of the workout, so that the body becomes active and can burn calories as intensively as possible.
On the other hand, an excessive amount of caffeine forces our body to be constantly “on the alert”, that is, supports it in an active state, even when it does not have the necessary resources for this.
As a result, it can lead to loss of sleep (if you drink coffee without any subsequent activity or load, or if you drink coffee at night).
Reflect on the appearance it can as follows:
Bags under the eyes.
In addition, caffeine removes moisture from our body. This means that if after drinking coffee you do not drink enough water, you may encounter:
Heaviness and inertia.
Lack of energy and strength.
3. Too spicy or spicy food
Spicy or too spicy food will also make you look tired, as it promotes the appearance of pigmentation (dark spots) on the skin and changes in its hue.
The thing is that spices and spices affect the circulatory system.
If this is an insufficient argument, let us cite one more: spicy food contributes to the expansion of veins and vessels. They become thicker. What’s bad about it? They become more noticeable under the skin, and this has a slightly aesthetic appearance.
In some cases, the skin itself thickens, which makes us look a bit swollen.
Alcohol should also be discarded (along with fried foods). I must say that your body will only get better from this.
However, if you are not ready to do this because you like to miss a couple of glasses during some events and meetings, then you should be ready for “side effects”.
Alcoholic beverages are in some ways similar to caffeine-containing since both of them lead to dehydration of the body.
Only with alcohol, the situation is more complicated since it is consumed more.
While during the day you will drink 2 or 3 cups of coffee, for a couple of hours of meeting with friends, you can easily drink 5 glasses of beer.
To eliminate the effects of dehydration, each glass of beer or a glass of another alcoholic beverage should be washed down with two glasses of water.
How many carbohydrates do you consume per day and, most importantly, what? Today, many people have decided to completely abandon these products, because they believe that they are too harmful to health.
If you are one of neither, then know that reality is not exactly like that. There are carbohydrates that need to be consumed because they provide our body with energy (for example, legumes).
Those that really need to be excluded from their diet are those containing sugars and refined flour. They give you a tired appearance and are charged with so-called “empty” calories.
These empty carbohydrates make you look tired because it is very hard for the body to digest them (it takes too much energy for this process). And if you ever felt an irresistible desire to sleep after eating, then the reason, most likely, was precisely this.
What can you eat instead of these products?
The best way to avoid tired appearance due to improper nutrition is to always have healthy food at hand.
Instead of carbohydrates, spices, spicy and fried foods you can always eat:
And in order to replace alcoholic beverages and coffee, you can not imagine anything better than water. If you can not drink it in large quantities, then try green tea, natural cocktails or herbal infusions.
