Today more and more people take care of their health. One of the ways to be healthy is keeping a special diet.
Slimmers diet. People who are slimming should eat low-calorie food. They shouldn’t have too much fatty or oily foods (like meat or chips) or carbohydrates (bread, pasta, potatoes, or sweet deserts ).
People with some diseases also have to keep a diet.
Diabetic diet. if a person has diabetes, they must watch their weight. Having too many carbohydrates can cause an attack, so it’s better to cut down on sugar, chocolate, ice-cream or cakes and substitute them with fruit and vegetables.
Gastric ulcer diet. A lot of people living in big cities have gastritis. In some cases it can lead to an ulcer. People with any gastric problems have to cut down on fatty and oily products and avoid smoked, fried, pickled or spicy foods. Alcohol is also forbidden.
One more reason for keeping a diet is people’s believes.
Vegetarian and vegan diet. Vegetarians believe it’s cruel to kill animals for food so they avoid eating meat, fish or poultry. Demi-vegetarians don’t eat red meat but they may have fish or poultry. There are also people who don’t eat any products of animal origin – meat, fish, poultry, eggs or dairy products. These people are vegans or full vegetarians.
There are also some religious diets.
Muslim and Jewish diets. Most Muslims and Jews don’t eat pork, ham or bacon, shellfish or fish without fins or scales (like eel) because these foods are ‘not clean’ for these religions. Animals must be killed according to religious ritual and under religious supervision – Halal meat for Muslims and kosher food for Jews. Muslims aren’t allowed to drink alcohol. Jewish people must keep meat and dairy products separate and mustn’t eat them at the same meal. For example, in Israel in many house there are two cookers for preparing milk and meat separately, and two sections in the sink for doing a separate washing-up.
Hindu and Buddhist diets. Hinduists mustn’t eat beef or veal. The cow is sacred for them because it gives people milk and considered to bring wealth. Lost of Hindus and Buddhists don’t eat meat at all. Their religion says that killing animals is a sin. That’s why they keep a vegetarian diet of fruit, vegetables, rice, nuts, herbs and spices.
