Diet and nutrition form part of the foundation of lasting optimum health. Eating a balanced and healthy diet in combination with regular exercise is essential in maintaining physical and mental health as well as overall well-being. Not only are these effective in preventing weight gain or in maintaining weight loss, but healthier lifestyles are also associated with improved sleep and mood.
Our diets are completely under our control. Therefore our health and well-being is dependent on the choices we make. The majority of chronic diseases, from diabetes to strokes, can be traced back to our diet and lifestyle and therefore can be avoided. Understanding the full picture of what a healthy diet consists of will give you every opportunity to embark on the health-kick you’ve been seeking.
It is true though that there is a lot of confusing information about what a healthy diet consists of. We all know the food groups we’ve been told to eat more of and those we’re meant to avoid, but is this really the way forward? For instance, we’ve been told 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.
Other exciting research has shown that certain probiotics may help combat autism. Studies have also identified that eating red meat could help protect your brain against Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, contradicting current guidelines saying that we should eat less red meat. It is difficult to know sometimes what we should be eating and what we shouldn’t.
This is where the Daily Health is at hand. The Diet & Nutrition archive will provide you all you need to know on how to maintain a healthy balanced diet, separating the fact from the fiction. All our latest findings will help you make sense of the confusing dietary guidelines and show you how optimal nutrition can support and protect your health.
