Coronavirus: the list of low-carbohydrate foods for containment (LONG STORAGE!)

Hello everyone.

Today, I was eager to share with you my ultimate food list low-carb when shopping at the supermarketin view of the generalized containment put in place to deal with the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic that is sweeping the world.

Indeed, I went to the supermarket to stock up on foodstuffs, and found that most people rushed to the shelves reserved for products with a high glycemic index in order to stock up.

In fact, in addition to their high carbohydratesthese foods are generally industrial, processed, not very nutritiousand are likely to make you hungrier than anything else by titillating your insulin, which will lead to overeating, especially in times of stress, and overtaxing your digestive system.

I'm not even talking about the damage it can do to your waistline, or the spikes in blood sugar levels, let alone what it can do to your immune system, whose situation should prompt you to boost it as much as possible, rather than train it on an inflammatory terrain.

For all these reasons, I think it's preferable to give preference to ingredients rich in good fats, moderate in proteinswith varying degrees of low-carbohydrate content - depending on whether or not you are ketosis - in order to arm your body against the health crisis. And just as well, since these are the ingredients that other consumers tend to neglect.

It's also a great survival exercise, why not combine it with the young intermittent.

Since I've been stocking up on food myself, I thought it would be a good idea to share everything I've bought with you, just in case the lockdown lasts a long time.

Of course, I gave priority to ingredients and foods low in carbohydrates and high in good fats, but I also made sure that the products I bought could be stored for a long time:

Say goodbye to rice, pasta, bread, sweets and other industrial products, and make way for healthy, nutritious ingredients, more or less Mediterranean, that are just as compatible with a healthy diet as they are with a healthy diet. ketogenicthan a relatively balanced, carbohydrate-moderate diet.

In this list of ingredients, remember to divide up the consumption of the products as such in order to have a good rhythm of digestion and not to cause too much overweight:

  • cheese in the morning, for those who eat it, with eggs and vegetables. vegetables ;
  • meat in the middle of the day, with vegetables cooked with a lot of fat;
  • canned or frozen fish in the evening, with a little fat and few vegetables.

So here's my ultimate list of foods to buy in the supermarket for containment, and which will keep relatively well! If you think it can help your loved ones make better choices!
