The idea balanced diet or the complete diet has gained great popularity during the last four – five decades. It is said that the body needs a number of constituents like Protein, Fat, Carbohydrate, Vitamins, Enzymes, Water, Fiber and Minerals.
The requirement varies according to the size of a human body. Not only that but the minimum daily requirements of each have also been worked out. They are as follows:
Protein 55 gms Fat 40 gms
Carbohydrate 450 gms Calcium 4 gms
Phosphorus 2 gms Iron 30 gms
Corotene 3000 mg. Thiamine 20 mg.
Riboflavin 1.5 mg Niacin 22 mg
Vitamin C 50 mg.
1) It should be noted that we take minerals and Vitamins out of the synthetic preparations.Unfortunately most of us do it every day and the result is mad rush for Hospitals, Doctors and Medicines.
2) The best thing is to so arrange our daily intake of food that out of that we may get the necessary complete and rejuvenating food.
3) Whatever we may eat, the attempt or the target should be to discard as few parts of it as possible e.g. if we eat apple or pear we should try to eat it with the skin and the inside core. Even if we eat the seeds there is no harm.
The Complete Food is thus that FOOD ( Seed, grain, legume ) which satisfies the conditions of balanced Diet or the Complete Food.
NO TO SUPPLEMENTS
Doctors at Cornell University and Virginia Polytechnic Institute have carried out extensive research on Sprouted Mung. They say that one teaspoonful of mung beans, when sprouted will give the following nutritional constituents:
Calories 17.5 Carbohydrates 3,3 gms Protein 1.9 mgm Fat 2 gms
Calcium 9.5 mgm Thiamine 0.06 5 mgm Sodium 2.5 mgm Iron 65 mgm
Vitamin A 10 units Riboflavin 0.065 mgm Niacin 0.4 mgm Vitamin 9.5mgm
Looking at the above table it is evident that Sprouted seeds, grains & legumes have sufficient and complete rejuvenating food. One does not need any like in the form of tablets, capsules, syrups , injections or tonics or protein foods.
