Weight loss with kosher nutrition

Initially, the kosher nutrition program does not imply weight loss. But at the same time, with proper planning of your dishes, you can promote weight loss:

  • Variety of products: Your menu should include a variety of products from all major groups: proteins (meat, poultry, fish, eggs), carbohydrates (bread, cereals, legumes), fats (oils, nuts), as well as a sufficient amount of fruits and vegetables. This will ensure the receipt of all necessary nutrients.
  • Healthy cooking methods: Use healthy cooking methods, such as boiling, baking, grilling, or steaming, instead of deep-frying. This will help reduce the consumption of unhealthy fats.
  • Consideration of the separation of meat and milk: In kosher nutrition, meat and dairy products should not be mixed in one meal. Plan your menu so that you alternate meat and dairy dishes, thereby ensuring a balanced consumption of both types of products.
  • Sufficient protein intake: Make sure you get enough protein from various sources, such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, legumes, and soy products.
  • Limiting processed products: Try to limit the consumption of processed products and choose whole foods whenever possible. Whole foods contain fewer additives and preservatives, which is better for your health.
  • Attention to portions: Control the size of portions to avoid overeating. This will help maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases.
  • Hydration: Drinking enough water is important for health. Water has no restrictions in kosher nutrition, so make sure you drink enough throughout the day.
