Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health.
What is good nutrition?
Good nutrition means your body gets all the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals it needs to work its best. It is best to plan your meals and snacks to include nutrient-dense foods that are also low in calories.
Balancing exercise with nutrition is very important and I have found the right nutrition can be real medicine for the body. We have billions of bacteria in our gut which send signals to the rest of our body and our brain. If we don’t eat properly then our body won’t function properly and our brains don’t work as well as they should. In achieving a fit and healthy body, your diet makes up 80% of the results that you want to achieve, that means that only 20% is due exercise.
