Diet Mountain

Daily ration is drawn up according to sex and age, and climate. It must contain equally all major types of food: proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals, vitamins etc. The body needs water, the amount being determined according to the effort, sweat, and ambient temperature. In relation to their nutritional properties of foods are of three types:

- Vitalize: they are found in vegetables (lettuce, parsley, carrots, beets, etc.) and juicy fruit (pears, apples, plums, cherries, oranges, peaches, lemons, etc.). They are rich in vitamins and trace elements. Their consumption produces too much nervousness, and too little leads to decreased resistance to infection.

- PLASTIC: foods in this group contain large amounts of protein (meat, milk, cheese, eggs, peanuts, peas, etc.). Excess plastic food promotes intestinal putrefaction, kidney and liver disorders, rheumatic diseases and some skin diseases. Instead of reducing their daily diet causes malnutrition.

- ENERGY: foods in this group provides the body with the highest number of calories. We mention cereals, bread, potatoes, pasta, sugar, grapes, figs, chestnuts, fats (animal and vegetable). In the literature are found numerous references to eating rules, according to which a healthy person needs daily: 60-70gr proteins, lipids and 300-500gr 50-80gr carbohydrates. An example of this is given by the formula 60/20/20, where 60 represents the percentage of fruits and vegetables, 20 percent of food, plastic and 20 percent of food energy, which must contain as many carbohydrates.

The cottage intake is 4000-5000 calories per day, resulting in a varied diet including protein, fat and carbohydrates. Vitamins fully as possible should be included in the diet. We recommend fresh food. Before effort carbohydrates are preferred, and in return, proteins and lipids. During a hiking day is not necessary to have a ration of 4,000 calories because the body has sufficient reserves, just in case, we will provide more options for you to have a choice.

DO NOT drink alcohol !!!
