Positive Outcomes: Proper Nutrition

November 21, 2018 

You probably know by now that part of living healthy and maintaining a healthy weight is having a balanced diet. Having a balanced diet means your body is getting the right nutrients such as fiber and vitamins that it needs.

 

Good nutrition can reduce the risk of some diseases such as heart disease, hypertension, some cancers, and diabetes. It can also aid in fighting osteoporosis. Even if you’re at a healthy weight, your diet could still be poor and low in vital nutrients so it’s very important to understand what nutrients your body needs and what foods to get to get those nutrients.

 

Unfortunately, there are some companies who deceive consumers with tricky wording on labels and ingredients. This is way it’s better for you to stick to natural, unprocessed foods.

 

Here’s some tips for keeping up with a balanced diet:

  • Make sure you’re eating plenty of fruits
  • If you’re going to eat grains, make sure they’re whole grains
  • Lean meats such as chicken breast and fish are ideal
  • Drink plenty of water, don't allow your bodyt to get thirsty
  • Keep the sweets to a minimum
  • Try to cut down on salt
  • Practice portion control

 

Eating a balanced diet can make you feel better and fuel your body for a better workout or even just a better work day. When your body gets the vitamins and minerals it needs to function properly, you will see and feel the difference.
