How Crucial Is Nutrition for Your Body's Health?

Jan 16, 2008
Since the beginning of times, human beings have known that we are what we eat. Our ancestors were fully aware of the simple fact that eating well today means being stronger tomorrow.

As we all know, science has evolved since those old days, and today we know that a good nutrition is not just what we eat, but it's also how much we eat and when we eat it. This means that a good nutrition not only consists on carefully deciding what to eat, but also know what amount of each kind of food we may eat to fulfill our body needs without accumulating an excess of nutrients.

For this reason, it is a good thing to get advice from a professional nutrition expert. As an expert, he knows the right plan to follow in order to achieve a perfect nutrition.

What we eat is so important that many specialists will require you to have some tests prior to recommending you a specific diet; as every person is different, it makes sense to design a diet plan that is unique and personal for each one.

Of course, some general dieting rules are the same for almost everybody, like for instance giving priority to the ingestion of proteins and carbohydrates over the consumption of saturated fats.

Common diets will include a lot more vegetables than meat, and even if the quantity of meat is substantial, which is common in volume diets (diets designed to help increase the volume of certain muscles), red meat is kept to a minimum and its substituted with other kinds of meat. Also, legumes are an excellent choice when it comes to look for a source of proteins, since they are powerful containers of those, and they have a better digestibility than meat.

An effective diet must also contain the amount of vitamins necessary to provide your body with at least the minimum amount recommended by nutritionists. Vitamins come from green-leaved vegetables, and also from fruit. In particular, citrics like oranges and lemons are huge sources of vitamin C, which helps antiaging by acting as an antioxidant agent.

Although the perfect diet is not difficult to design, it is unpractical for the vast majority of people, as our normal obligations (i.e. work and/or study) leave us with too little time to follow that perfect diet, thus forcing us to skip meals or just replacing a meal with a quick snack and a cup of coffee. For this reason, any good diet should include a good nutrition supplement in it. Depending on each person's every day activities, a variable amount of a complete food supplement can provide those vitamins, proteins and other elements your diet lacks.

A good diet ensures a good nutrition, and a good nutrition equals a good health.
