The secrets of a light and balanced dinner

Being on a diet  does not mean skipping meals or impoverishing your diet. Eating 5 times a day (breakfast, mid-morning, lunch, snack, dinner) helps you keep your energy level stable, so you don't get to any of your meals "starving."

Dinner should represent 20-30% of the daily energy intake , so in a diet of about 1,500 Kcal, dinner would have to provide between 300 and 450 Kcal.

Carbohydrates at night, do you get fat? The answer is no and there are scientific studies that show it:  complex carbohydrates are essential in any healthy and balanced diet, because they provide us with the necessary energy for all our bodily functions. What is important is to avoid refined flours and ultra-processed foods to replace them with whole wheat flours and, of course, balance food consumption with our daily energy expenditure.

How should a balanced dinner be composed? Our Mediterranean diet is perfect because it is balanced: it always combines complex carbohydrates (cereals, legumes, tubers), vegetables, and some protein, both animals (meats, fish, eggs) and vegetables ( tofu , legumes, etc.). In what proportions? We are going to turn to the method called "the Harvard Healthy Eating Plate." The famous university devised this system, which is a visual guide that allows us to understand how much space each food should occupy on our plate.

Dessert. Eating something sweet at the end of dinner is a pleasure that you do not have to deprive yourself of: a piece of fruit or a skimmed yogurt are the ideal dessert to keep in shape.

It is important to use cooking methods that require little or no oil: steamed, en papillote, grilled, etc.
