Fish is one of the oldest foods used by man to feed himself, apreciated for the richness of nutritional principles. In particular fundamental for health and physical appearance.That is, the primitive men who lived in the vicinity of the sea or lakes understood that those waters contained an enormous source of food.First of all because fish were an easy-to-find source of animal protein.Secondly, because fish was abundant all year round.Similarly, the capture of fish species occurred later than that of terrestrial species.In other words, hunting on land required the use of instinctive ancestral behaviors common to many other living beings.But fishing needed more advanced techniques.
That is the use of fishing rods nets. That is, the human species had to wait for the times of greater brain development to be able to develop fishing techniques. But then the fish became the staple of the diet of many peoples. In particular, because they understood its exceptional organoleptic characteristics that have made it an essential food in a healthy and balanced diet
FISH IS A GOOD FOOD WITH A HIGH BIOLOGICAL VALUE FOR ITS RICHNESS OF NUTRITIONAL PRINCIPLES
Since ancient times, those who ate fish, understood its enormous usefulness from a nutritional point of view and its exceptional organoleptic characteristics for the richness of nutritional principles. That is, the fish-eaters of the past immediately appreciated it for two reasons. First of all because, using experience, they invented many tasty recipes. Particularly in the world there are many tasty ways to cook it. In addition, the various culinary techniques are very differentiated locally. That is, in Japan or in some areas of southern Italy raw fish is appreciated. In addition, the culinary imagination has generated many recipes of baked fish, in sauce or fried elsewhere. The nutritional properties of fish are highly valued due to its high protein content. Then also to the high biological value of its proteins and its essential fat content.
RICHNESS OF NUTRITIONAL PRINCIPLES AND BIOLOGIC VALUE OF PROTEINS
HEALTHY FOOD RICH OF NUTRITIONAL PRINCIPLES
When there was an evolution in the studies on human and animal nutrition, we began to talk about the biological value of food and the richness of nutritional principles. In particular, it is an evaluation parameter of the quality of the proteins contained in a food. That is, it is a number that gives an evaluation of the quality, quantity and reciprocal relationships of the presence of the various amino acids in a food. In other words, the proteins and amino acids of which they are composed are quaternary structures. That is, the basic structure of these compounds is based on the bond between four elements: nitrogen (N), carbon (C), hydrogen (H), oxygen (O). In addition, proteins and amino acids are essential compounds for life. Then a fundamental distinction between them is that in essential and non-essential amino acids.
RICHNESS OF NUTRITIONAL PRINCIPLES : ESSENTIAL AND NON-ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS
The main distinction between essential and non-essential amino acids is that the former are not synthesized by the body. Similarly, the latter are produced autonomously by living beings. In other words this means that essential amino acids must be ingested by means of food with food. But the non-essential ones are less essential because the organism produces them, for the most part autonomously. In particular, the essential amino acids are 8. That is phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, methionine, lysine, leucine, isoleucine. Then the so-called non-essential are alanine, aspartic acid, asparagine, glutamic acid, serine, selenocisterine. In addition, branched chain amino acids are important among the essential amino acids. In particular they are L-leucine, L-isoleucine, L-valine. Then they are crucial for muscle health and development. For example, they are used as supplements by athletes who practice strength and endurance sports.
NUTRITIONAL PRINCIPLES OF FISH IMPORTANT FOR AN HEALTHY AND NICE BODY
Branched chain amino acids are a category of essential amino acids. In particular they are leucine, isoleucine and valine. Moreover, they are well known by sportsmen and, above all, by those who practice an activity aimed at hypertrophy of muscle mass. In other words, they are the basic material used by the body to build muscles. Especially foods of animal origin are a good source of these amino acids. That is, the athlete who wants to integrate their diet with them will have to integrate it with fish, meat, eggs, milk and derivatives. But it is possible to find lower doses of these amino acids also in soy, hemp seeds.
CONTRAINDICATIONS OF ABUNDANT USE OF PROTEIN FOODS
Overdoing protein foods can lead to problems. First of all, as I have already written, for the risk of an excess of proteins. Then also because protein-rich foods such as meat, eggs and dairy products are also rich in saturated fat. Saturated fats such as LDL cholesterol have a chemical structure that makes them akin to the walls of blood vessels. In other words this favors their bond with the inside of the blood vessels. Then, due to all this, problems arise in the circulation of the blood. Then arises the risk of the formation of atherosclerotic plaques which can increase the risk of thrombosis.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT FOODS
Everyone knows about the existence of substances such as cholesterol and triglycerides. Then it is also known that it is not recommended to overdo the diet with meat, cold cuts, cheeses and eggs. In particular, foods of animal origin were highly sought after in the past when the diet was poorer. In other words, most men ate mainly grains and legumes. For example, products of animal origin were known for the richness of nutritional principles but were also a luxury that not everyone could afford. Similarly today the situation has changed. That is, men have a high variety of foods known for their wealth of nutrients to choose from. In particular, awareness of which foods are the healthiest has grown. There are still foods available that contain substances that produce health benefits. Then the growing awareness of food quality made it possible to identify the best foods.
Sex is a tool invented by nature with the aim of making living beings multiply.In particular, at the basis of mating, or falling in love in the case of human beings, there is a complex series of psychophysical phenomena.In other words, everyone would instinctively prefer to mate with an individual in good health and good looks.Especially because this would guarantee a good genetic makeup transmission to the children.In addition, good nutrition is essential for good appearance, good health and proper functioning of the reproductive system.That is, nature would like to develop and conceive future children in the best possible conditions.In other words, it promotes oogenesis (production of eggs) or spermatogenesis (production of spermatozoa) in favorable environmental conditions.That is, it is known that situations of psychophysical stress or poor nutrition compromise male and female fertility.
That is, a correct production of male and female gametes as well as a correct female oestrus cycle are linked to a correct diet with a good wealth of nutritional principles. In other words, an excessive calorie deficit impairs fertility in both sexes. Then the reason for all this is due to the fact that nature interprets an excessive calorie deficit as an unfavorable environmental situation. That is, in such situations, in the past it was risky to have children. In addition, now, the risks of food shortages have disappeared almost everywhere in the Western world.
FOOD FATS AND FERTILITY
But nature reasons as it did thousands of years ago when man lived in caves. Then also the excess of adipose tissue linked to excessive nutrition compromises fertility. Similarly, in addition to the quantity of calories contained in food, it is important to consider their quality and the richness of nutritional principles. That is, proper sexual activity requires a healthy circulatory system. First of all, therefore, the cholesterol and triglyceride values must be under control so as not to hinder blood circulation. In other words, it is important to limit foods of animal origin and increase the consumption of those of plant origin.
First of all to reduce the amount of saturated fat in the diet. Plus to promote good heart health which is important during sexual activity. Then, a correct intake of proteins and carbohydrates is advantageous for maintaining a good condition of the muscular system which is of great importance in sex. Finally, a valid content of vitamins and antioxidants in the diet protects the DNA from oxidative damage that can compromise the fertility and genetic quality of the unborn child.
Still it can be said that there is a close link between physical and mental well-being. That is, both are related to each other. In other words, it is not just a theory of the yoga discipline that excess flesh is bad for the body and spirit. In particular, metabolizing excessive quantities of meat and products rich in fat produces kidney and liver fatigue. Especially all this leads to a general malaise condition of both the body and the mind.
I have described the importance of a healthy diet with a good wealth of nutrients in order to have good sexual activity. That is, it is important to eat foods chosen for its richness of nutritional principles that promote a good condition of the circulatory system. In particular, blood flow is favored by good blood fluidity and by the good condition of the blood vessel walls. For example, a diet low in saturated fats and rich in unsaturated ones. That is, rich in HDL cholesterol and low in LDL cholesterol will have the advantage of not hindering blood flow. Then you have to be aware of which are the best foods to achieve this goal. That is, by making proper choices, one of the healthiest foods is fish. In other words, all fish are beneficial to health. but what is called blue fish is more so than the others. First of all for its wealth of beneficial LDL cholesterol. That is, of that cholesterol that has a high cardiovascular protective capacity, helping to clean the blood vessels. Plus, all of this helps your blood vessels stay open and clean. Then fish is appreciated for its low calorie content and the high biological value of its proteins. Its healthiness is also highly valued. For example, small and medium-sized fish caught in clean seas represent a guarantee of eating a healthy and organic product.
CHOICE OF THE BEST FISH
It is established that fish is one of the healthiest and most nutritious foods due to its exceptional organoleptic characteristics. Particularly if it is fish caught in the sea. Then nutritionists recommend eating it at least 2 or 3 times a week. Or more if it serves as a protein source for athletes. In particular I described the high amino acid content of fish. But it also contains many other substances that are very useful for health both for the ordinary individual, for the sportsman and also for those who want to nourish their muscles. To start, it is essential to know how to choose the best fish. First of all, therefore, I would recommend, if possible, to prefer fresh fish to frozen fish. Then I would like to give some indications on how to be sure of the freshness of the fish you buy. In particular, it is useful to learn to understand the signals that can give us guarantees on the quality of fish products. That is, when you enter a fish shop you have to evaluate the appearance of the fish. That is, after reading the tag that provides us with information on its origin, we examine its sensory characteristics.

That is, when you enter a fish shop you have to evaluate the appearance of the fish. That is, after reading the tag that provides us with information on its origin, we examine its sensory characteristics.
These are the characteristics that we can evaluate using the senses of touch, sight and smell.
TOUCH: First of all, touching the fish we must perceive firm meat. Then, if we take it in hand and keep it in its central part, the fish caught a few hours ago should not bend because it would still be in the rigor mortis phase. Even touching the fish with a finger can help us understand its freshness. That is, fresh fish is slightly slimy on the surface
SMELL : In addition we can use the sense of smell to perceive a fresh smell of the sea. Especially fish that is no longer fresh tends to lose this smell. Then another element to be careful of is the eye of the fish. That is, the fresh fish eye has a shiny appearance. In addition, the eye of a fish that has been frozen and then thawed appears sunken.
CHOICE OF PREFERABLE FISH
The amount of fish that you need to eat depends on the goals the athlete wants to achieve. That is, every bodybuilder must be aware of what his protein requirement is and eat the corresponding amount of fish. Then the choice of the quality of fish to prefer depends on what are the objectives to be achieved. In particular, the choice of a fish low in fat and rich in protein and omega3 would make us prefer cod. In addition, a fish with protein and particularly rich in unsaturated fats beneficial for the cardiovascular system would advise us to choose salmon. That is, it is important to know the fish in order to choose one for its exceptional organoleptic characteristics.
The healthiest cooking method for cooking fish is steaming or boiling. That is, the cod or salmon is cooked at a temperature of 95 ° C so not excessive. Then, if you are going to use boiling, I recommend using a little water and then using it anyway. In particular, the cooking water is important for the richness of nutrients contained in the fish, so it can be recovered to prepare a broth so that it is not wasted. Like the cooking broth, it can be flavored with carrots, potatoes and onions. That is, they will enrich the liquid with useful mineral salts and improve the taste of the broth. In addition, vegetables such as cabbage or celery will also release vitamin C in the broth, which is a very useful water-soluble vitamin.
