L’estate è il momento giusto per rinfrancare le buone regole dietetiche, alleggerire la tavola e liberarsi dagli eccessi, soprattutto dai dolci e dal carboidrato a tutti i costi.

Un aiuto concreto arriva dall’indice glicemico dei cibi, un parametro su cui si fondano importanti metodi dietetici ipocalorici. Il precetto è semplice: mantenere stabile e normale il livello degli zuccheri e dei grassi nel sangue.

C’è anche una buona notizia: i carboidrati non devono essere aboliti. Molto dipende dalla cottura e dalla preparazione: ad esempio, la pasta al dente ha un indice glicemico più basso rispetto alla pasta scotta. Le buone regole di cucina ci sono di aiuto, anche dal punto di vista dietetico!

Ai carboidrati comunque è meglio preferire i cereali integrali e i legumi. La soia, i fagioli, le lenticchie, i ceci, l’orzo, il farro contengono zuccheri a lento assorbimento ossia riducono la produzione di insulina e danno un senso di sazietà prolungato permettendoci di non pasticciare nel corso della giornata. Più sazietà, meno cali di zucchero, meno ipoglicemie transitorie: è un metodo semplice per coprire i buchi di stomaco.

La regola d’oro, pertanto, è scegliere gli zuccheri a lento rilascio e limitare il consumo dei grassi, soprattutto quelli saturi contenuti nei prodotti di origine animale: meglio bandire le carni grasse, gli insaccati, lo zucchero, i dolci e il burro. Via libera invece al pesce, quanto se ne vuole, perche’ contiene acidi grassi polinsaturi poco nocivi. Completare poi con frutta e verdura: il loro contenuto di fibre frena l’assorbimento degli zuccheri nell’intestino.

Infine non dimentichiamo le proteine: è consigliabile mantenerne un supporto generoso dando però la preferenza a quelle vegetali, i legumi in primo luogo.

Controllare l’indice glicemico significa anche evitare la propensione al diabete, una patologia in forte aumento nel nostro paese: il 4,5% della popolazione ne è affetto, soprattutto le donne.

The support we can give to WIDOWS AND ORPHANS is not merely a slogan.
It is a life project, we have accustomed to helping the poor.
We need to help those who are not as fortunate.
.. It's been almost 30 years. First trip to Sri Lanka, a paradise.
Inspite of all the negative media reports, I will venture once again to this jewel of all islands.
Always remember the sunsets near the Hill Station leading to Kandy. 5 o'clock teas amidst Tea Estates, silver cutlery, porcelain cups of the finest quality. Sri Lanka has something other places do not have.
The curries, oriental flavors, cinnamon fruit stews.
Memories come back.
Eheliyagoda, the town of gems, Saphires, rubies, Catseyes, Spinnels, Turqoise.
Squaremiles upon squaremiles of Tea Estate, the origin of the "Orange Pekoe', the prime of a all Black teas.
Now, after nearly 30 years, I managed to trace my old friend Johnny who in the 70's came to Africa to work in the Horticultural business.
I am thrilled to meet him again, the 30 years that have passed went by so fast.
Look forward to the sunset in the hills around Kandy once again.
There 's nothing compared to it.



Sri Lanka, paradise of unknown proportions.
Ceylon, my dream.

I continue to write about Tibet, its breath taking beauty, its mountains and valleys; Its magnificent people. The Ascent revives the moments of climbing into mountains of over 4000 m in altitude. A strenuos excercise that takes all one's breath.
The rewards for a 12 hour climb on steep mountain slopes : The breathtaking scenery one encounters. Peaceful surroundings, fresh, clean air, friendly, hospitable people.
Magnificent nature surrounding.
Yaks, shepherds, Chambar.
Ryefields grown entirely 'Bio', unchanged since thousand years.
A place where we hear Wolves howling at night, the occasional call of the coockoo.
Wonders of Tibet.

The ascent

Wednesday, August 13, 2008 Where lies the legendary Shangrila ?
For many years we went to the bush, starting ealry morning at 3.00 a.m. Everyone asleep we experienced the wonders of an African morning. If it was only for the sunrise, a marvel in itself. But there is much more. And always there are surprises. A Cobra, a Guinea viper, a Monitor, an Antilope, or a Civet. Each time we went, surprises were never short in supply. We were the 'Okinini Obomomfuo' as we were called in the local dialect. Read about many stories from the Bush and elsewhere:
Working in Africa brings many surprises. The Africa we know from the media is different than the reality.

Our house caretaker 's sone was taken ill today, apparently with severe Malaria.
When the caretaker called to inform us, he was sobbing. He did not elaborate on the phone and we are really worried now.
Malaria is a common illness and strikes suddenly.
Especially the local population is suffering greatly.
In my own case, I suffered from Malaria several times, and I have resorted to self treatment.
3 Chloroquin injections, each day 5 ml i.m., full dose of 'Coartem' for 5 days will help to eradicate the bugs.
Still, many people don't have access to medication and doctors, as they can't afford treatment. Rather than asking, they prefer to keep quiet, suffering from the effects till it is too late.
For them, and this is the majority, 'Globalization' has done nothing. It has actually worsened the situation.
