A healthy life is a combination of good nutrition and staying physically active. For someone to have a healthy lifestyle just working out is not enough. You also need to eat a nutritious meal daily.

 

  • A proper diet is essential for you to keep chronic diseases at bay. Diabetes, heart attack, high blood pressure etc. can be avoided if you are controlling your food intake and are consuming the right kind of food.

 

  • The food we eat also affects our moods. Whether it’s happy, annoyed, alert, sleepy or calm; the meals we take has a significant impact.

 

  • A balanced diet will provide all the energy you need for a day. Whether you are rooting for a fruity breakfast with a glass of milk, or some oatmeal, what you eat will keep you pumped up for couple of hours until lunch time,

 

  • Your diet, if taken care of properly, will also help you build a strong immune system.

A nutritious diet will contain the following:

  1. Carbohydrates
  2. Vitamins
  3. Fibre
  4. Fat
  5. Proteins
  6. Minerals
  7. Water

It is essential that you include all 7 if you are to have a balanced diet. Excluding one type will not get you the results you need.

A balanced diet with the right portion size along with exercising will help you maintain a healthy lifestyle with time. Take #OneSmallStep today and lead a good life tomorrow!
