Essence and rules

From time immemorial, China uses the categorization system of food to taste: salty, sour, bitter, pungent, sweet. Each product belongs to one of the categories and has a corresponding type of energy. The most useful is a diet consisting of all 5 tastes.

A feature of the Chinese diet is that, with its balance, it remains fairly strict. To comply with it within 21 days requires a lot of endurance and perseverance.

When compiling a menu of Chinese diet should be guided by the following principles:

Breakfast should be small in volume and consist of healthy foods that need to be changed daily to provide the body with everything you need.
Lunch is the largest and most important meal that is meant for enjoyment, therefore it is allowed to eat any dishes, but with a minimum amount of fat.
Dinner - light, low-calorie, the smallest in volume and energy value.
According to the Chinese, the violation of these principles of nutrition is the main cause of various diseases and weight gain.
