Nutrition

Combined with physical activity, optimum nutrition can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight and reduce your risk of developing a wide range of chronic diseases (like heart disease, diabetes and cancer).

A complete diet will provide all the nutrients required for the correct functioning of our body’s. Nutrients consist of the main food groups we are familiar with, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals. In broad terms they are required for growth and energy, whereas vitamins and minerals are used for more specific functions for example vitamin A is required for good eye sight and calcium is needed for healthy teeth and bones.

Despite the fact that nutrition in combination with physical exercise is one of the essential building blocks of a healthy body well into your old age, medical students today receive less than 24 hours of nutrition training on average. It’s no wonder that dietary and nutritional guidelines continue to miss the mark when it comes to advising the public on their nutrition.

Consider these common scenarios that many of us will encounter: Is saturated fat your enemy? Should I eat low-fat or full-fat? What about artificial sweeteners, are they an ideal weight loss aid?

These questions exemplify the great deal of confusion around understanding which food groups are detrimental to your health and which groups we need to boost our consumption of. For instance, we’re continually told by the mainstream to avoid saturated fat and yet more and more research is beginning to show that saturated fat is an essential component of a healthy and balanced diet.

The Daily Health aims to add some common sense to all the confusion, so delve into the extensive Nutrition archive to learn more about how you can start a new, healthy lifestyle to keep ill-health at bay.
