Different approaches in nutrition
Our traditional nutrition plan is based on eating cooked or raw foods of animal and plant origin three times a day. Because of health and ethical reasons, some people are choosing plant based or raw foods or eating twice a day. Medical studies indicate that there is good relation between some chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cancer and the nutrition regimes mentioned above. It is claimed that the intake of main nutrients can be provided by well-planned meals. Vegetarian, vegan, raw nutrition and intermittant fasting increasingly are given preference and we may see this population amongst our patients too much. In this article the definitions, contents and influence of some chronical diseases of the nutrition models, which are declared above, are featured.
