During confinement, it is very likely that the time you spend sitting in front of the computer, mobile phone or television has increased, and that your usual practice of physical exercise has decreased, either because you cannot go to the gym, or because it is impossible to go out to enjoy a good walk.

Before knowing what we should eat, it is important that we insist on how necessary it is to drink enough and maintain good hydration. Remember: you can drink water, vegetable broths and infusions. And keep in mind that tap water is perfectly healthy, 100% free of viruses and bacteria.

But keep in mind also that the best nutritional plan It is the one that adjusts to your physical conditions, your lifestyle, and your needs or special regimes according to your circumstances.

Fruits and vegetables: take a day a minimum of five servings of fruits and vegetables, preferably fresh seasonal and local fruit.

Cereals and legumes: bread, pasta, rice are always better if you take them whole grains, and legumes, stewed or stewed, combine them with vegetables.

Meats and foods of animal origin: consume them in moderation, preferably choose poultry meats, such as chicken and turkey, and avoid the consumption of sausages and fatty meats of any animal. And both in meat and fish, it is better to cook on the grill or sauté.

Olive oil, nuts and seeds: they provide healthy fats (omega 3 and 6) and reduce cardiovascular risk and diabetes. Nuts (walnuts, almonds, etc.) and seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, etc.) are better natural or toasted than fried, sugary or salty.
