NASI TIMBEL KOMPLIT...Sundanese special cuisine i found in Bandung
Alhamdulilah, i've finish my final exam.The result will come out in 2 weeks time. Today i want to talk about FOOD & APPETITE
Appetite is one of the desire that human sometimes find it hard to control. That's why we sometimes craved for certain kind of food.. The result is it can cause the imbalance between food intake and the energy expenditure.
Actually, there are guidelines in eating according to our prophet Muhammad(pbuh). From one of his hadith it which i conclude that we only eat just to support the need of your body.Therefore the stomach is divided into 3 EQUAL parts: 1.for food 2.for water/drinks 3.for air
The hadith says... Tak ada wadah yg lbh buruk yg dipenuhi oleh manusia selain perutnya. Dia sebenarnya hanya memerlukan beberapa suap untuk menopang hidupnya. Kerana itu, perut perlu dibahagi kepada 3 bhg; sepertiga untuk makana, sepertiga utk minuman & sepertiga utk udara (Hadith riwayat Tirmidzi, Ibnu Majah, Hakim & Ibnu Hibban)
During my 1st year,I learned about nutrition and food intake in detail. There are a lot of diseases cause by imbalance intake of food.It is one of the most common environmental cause of disease .Rather than discussing on the effect i would like to share how to prevent it..
The answer is easy..CONTROL your APPETITE..FOLLOW the RULES:FOOD PYRAMID
