Every resident of planet Earth should reconsider your diet. Otherwise not to avoid a food crisis. What to eat to prevent it?

In the coming decades the world will face new challenges. The most probable of them is the food crisis against the background of increasing population. By 2050, according to the report of the UN Department of economic and social Affairs, will reach 9.8 billion people. Though it will happen not soon, but hundreds of scientists are trying to solve a dilemma: how to feed so many people healthy food? As The Guardian reports, analytical centre Eat in Norway and the British journal Lancet have teamed up to conduct an in-depth global research. It is held in thirty-five different regions in the world to deal with the dilemma.

The food crisis in the world can be prevented. In the future we need to stabilize population growth; to achieve the objectives set out in the Paris agreement on climate change; preventing changes in land use. Need to reflect on how to translate the world into a new power supply system. A new diet must include foods, which are positively diet which is immune to climate change.

According to the “КазахЗерно.kz” in world unfold the real “war for food”. Millions of people are trying to improve your diet, starting from the data of modern research. It is important for them to not only eat correctly but also with less damage to the family budget. The debate continues about how dangerous red meat health; useful if vegetarianism; what milk is better – cow’s or almond; which fish is better grown on the farm or in the wild and caught in reservoirs?

Experts Eat and Lancet concerned that the global food system collapses. More than 2 billion people suffer from nutrient deficiencies; nearly 1 billion people are hungry; 2.1 billion of the adult population are overweight or obese. Diet, of which there are hundreds, akin to a disease: they increase the risk of developing serious diseases and are often the cause of death.

New diet is not only healthy, but also make a positive impact on the environment. In based Mediterranean diet, which is still dominant in the world among hundreds of others. It does not copy it completely. It has reduced the share of consumption of eggs, meat, fish and sugar. In the West, will meet her cautious due to the almost complete exclusion from the diet of dairy products. A list of foods in the diet variable. It can be tailored to the taste preferences of all people on the planet. For example, they eat cassava, and other meat; one accustomed to products based on palm oil, and other soy-based; some are omnivorous, others are vegetarians or vegans.

Below is a sample menu for 7 days for the British. They should really try to eat 7 (0-14) grams of red meat. To prepare the steak for this amount of meat is problematic. If there is no time for culinary experiments you can eat it once a month. You can’t eat more than two chicken Breasts and two eggs for two weeks and two cans of tuna or half salmon for the week. The proportion of fatty dairy products (yogurt, milk, butter and cheese) – not more than 250 grams a week. It is very small, when you consider that the average tea pour 30 g of milk.

Initially daily caloric diet 2,500 calories. This is enough to compensate for the loss energy per day in men weighing 70 kg and a woman weighing 60 kg with moderate or high levels of physical activity. British nutrition Foundation insists on the revision of the daily caloric diets for women to 2000 kcal.
