An important part of a healthy lifestyle is good nutrition. The food you choose to eat today will affect your health in the future. Good nutrition combined with physical activities can help you reach, maintain, and promote your overall health. Idea weight goals are easily accomplished when right food choices are made. These choices will also help you maintain your ideal healthy weight and reduce your risk to chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer.

Eating healthy isn’t as hard as you might think. Following these simple steps will help you eat healthy.

  • Eat a variety of foods (fruit, vegetables, beans, and whole-grain products)
  • Eat lean meats (fish, poultry, beef cuts, pork, lamb, and low-fat dairy products)
  • Drink lots of water
  • Limit the amount of sugar, salt, saturated fat, trans fat, and alcohol in your diet

Food provides the source of energy and nutrients you need in order to be healthy. The nutrients include calcium, carbohydrates, fats, folic acid, iron, minerals, niacin, proteins, vitamins, and water. Saturated fats usually are from animals. Trans fat are labeled on foods such as processed foods, shortening, and margarines.

Why is Proper Nutrition Important?

Nothing is more important than eating healthy. Proper nutrition is an important way to keep your body functioning at its peak level. Eating the right foods, exercising regularly, a healthy lifestyle, and a positive mental attitude will help your body reach its true health potential.

Likewise, improper nutrition will keep your body from functioning at its peak level. Eating the wrong foods, not exercising regularly, living an unhealthy lifestyle, and having a negative mental attitude will eventually cause your body to have health problems.

  • Boost your immune system
  • Counteract tiredness and fatigue
  • Delay the effects of aging
  • Increase your energy and vitality
  • Maintain your goal weight
  • Improve your endurance
  • Keep active and fit into old age
  • Avert serious illnesses
