We hear it said fairly regularly. Everything in moderation – and it applies important to food and diet as much as anything else.
A nutritious, well balanced diet really is the foundation of good health.
Healthy eating means including lean meats, organic carbohydrates and healthy fats in your everyday diet.
It also means minimising processed foods and saturated fats. It’s a habit that is easy to get into, and once you commit to it, you will find that the processed foods no longer taste any good anyway.
The nutrients in the food that you eat protect your body at a cellular level – keeping them safe from environmental damage, and actually repairing them from damage that has already happened.
These fuel your body, while the vitamins and minerals included in them support the way your body works. For example, Vitamin A, C and E act as antioxidants to protect your cells from toxins. Vitamin B however helps you extract energy from the food that you consume.
Quantity matters. The intake of calories should match the output of energy to keep your weight level. The best way to manage your intake is to plan your menu ahead.
A lack of balance in one’s diet can promote disease like obesity, osteoporosis, or cardiovascular disease. Consuming foods from a wide range of food groups can help prevent these sorts of conditions.
Making small changes to one’s diet to promote a balanced approach to all the food groups and eating as healthily as you can is a great way to generate a healthy lifestyle, for you and your family.
