There is no “healthy food”, equally useful for any person. To such conclusion the Israeli researchers, who found that it is necessary to pay attention to individual reactions to certain foods.
In the experiment carried out by the staff of the Weizmann Institute, participated eight persons. Subjects were divided into two groups, one of which adhered to a healthy diet, the second ate junk food. Diet of different types, as noted by the authors experience Elinav Eran and Eran Segal showed their pros and cons due to the individual characteristics of different people. For example, the same products provoke different changes in the blood sugar levels of volunteers.
“Nutritionists are encouraged to pay attention to the glycemic index, which determines the “usefulness” of a product. But our experience has shown that the same food can affect organisms of different people. For example, one of the women, who participated in the experience, increased sugar level after consumption of tomatoes. Someone had to give up because of this from bananas. That is, each person needs to determine which products suit him better than the rest. There is no healthy food, which would be equally useful for all” — say the authors, adding that the different effects of the same food products can be explained by differences in the composition of the intestinal microflora.
