A healthy diet is crucial if you wish to maintain or improve overall health. It provides the body with the necessary nutrients for proper functioning such as: liquid, carbohydrates, sufficient essential amino acids from proteins, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and sufficient calories. The needs for a healthy diet can be met by a variety of plant and animal foods.
A healthy diet supports energy needs and protects the body from exposure to toxicity or overweight by eating too much. Where the lack of calories is not a problem, a properly balanced diet (in addition to exercise) is also considered important for reducing health risks such as obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and cancer.
Several diet guides are constantly published by medical institutions to educate the public about what we should eat and promote health. More and more we all know to read the basic information – nutritional ingredients on the labels of standardized / processed food products – and so we can choose correctly and according to our own individual needs.
The idea of dietary therapy (using dietary options to maintain health and improve ill health) is important and one more option. This dietary approach is quite old and has modern scientific forms as well (medical nutrition therapy). Although based on tradition it is accepted by science (such as dietary therapy in traditional Chinese medicine or Mediterranean diet).
