A good reason to learn to substitute food is to end the food routine. In this way, to diversify the menus, nutritionists have created weight control systems that you know as points, equivalences or portions.
For example, in the considered diet of points, each food has a certain numerical value, same that you have to add up to arrive at the amount of adequate intake. It is very important that you consume each and every one of the recommended points.
On the other hand, in a diet of substitutes, you can exchange some foods for others of the same group, you only have to know well the equivalence of portions.
Cereals: 1 hot cake = half a tablespoon (cda) of honey and 1 tbsp of oats
Proteins: 90 grams of fish = 90g of beef
Vegetables: This type of food is free
Fruits: 1 cup of pineapple = 200ml of apple juice Smile Natura, 100% juice
These equivalences or substitutes are grouped according to calories, carbohydrates (carbohydrates), proteins and fats, which should have a certain similarity.
In the case of fruit, nutritionists consider it as part of a balanced diet, but like the other two groups, cereals (carbohydrates) and foods of animal origin or legumes (proteins) the surplus is converted into fat, it is for that we must know the proper portion of each fruit to consume.
Fruits are an important source of vitamins, minerals (inorganic nutrients) and fiber. So the difference between them is the amount of vitamins they contain.
