You would have heard lots of people saying that healthy nutrition is important for a healthy body but you need to know that is the actual meaning of healthy nutrition and why it is so important.
Let’s define nutrition
“Nutrition is the process of giving your body all the important and necessary elements which can help it to grow in proper and balanced way.”
This is the simplest definition which tells you that you need to get proper food and proper diet which can help your body to grow in a better way.
Healthy nutrition can make your body strong and can help it to grow and repair itself while an unhealthy nutrition plan can make your body weaker and can make you ill and you will not be able to fight against certain minor diseases.
The purpose of nutrition is quiet simple to understand and there are three things which can tell you its importance and purpose.
First of all, you have a body and secondly that body needs some very precise things to nourish and to grow.
Thirdly nutrition includes all those things which can help your body to grow. Now after this understanding, you need to know that what
actual relationship of food and nutrition is.
First of all, make this fact concrete that food and nutrition are not same things and there is some difference present between both of these.
Every food has not got nutrition and degree of nutrition in every food can vary.
It may happen that some food items may contain high percentage of nutrition while some food items may not contain any nutrition at all.
For example an apple can provide your body lot more nutrition than a doughnut.
You can make it more interesting by understanding that when an apple goes in your system then it breaks down in substance which your body uses for growth and blood production but when you eat a doughnut then, your digestion system will say “hmm, I do not need much of this stuff, so, either throw it away or store it somewhere like in butt cheeks.”
Relationship between Food, Health And Nutrition Food, health and nutrition all are very closely related.
The food which you eat can be either full of nutrition or it can not contain any nutrition. The
nutrition which you provide to your body affects your health directly.
The basic goal of everyone is to improve health and to improve health, you must provide enough and adequate amount of nutrition to your body and especially for your physical health and fitness, you must make sure that you are providing enough nutrition to your body.
There are four categories in nutrition which your body always need in enough amounts. These four categories are protein, fat, carbohydrate and vitamins.
You need to make sure that the food which you are eating contains necessary amount of these elements and if you observe all the processed food then, you will know that all of these are labeled with their nutrition values and these labels are there for you to make an informed choice about your nutritional needs.
Guidelines for Proper And Healthy Nutritional Food
In order to provide your body with proper nutritional elements, you need to follow these very simple food guidelines and these will help you to make better choice of food.
You should have a general idea of healthy and
unhealthy food in first place and this idea will allow you to choose healthier food without going through lists of food items.
Every food which can be metabolized means that can be converted into substance which is needed to grow is healthy food.
You can make a measuring foot which can tell you the health value of a particular food item.
Make it in three parts and first of all think about those foods which are totally processed and baked as these foods have almost zero natural
elements in them like doughnuts, fast food and other similar items.
These foods have absolute nutritional value and in most of the cases they are
found to be harmful for your body.
Second are those food which are cooked
with natural ingredients like meat, chicken, vegetables and similar other items.
These foods are nutritional to some extent because they contain natural elements and you can add these food items in your regular diet.
Third are the food items which are totally natural and have no preservatives and other similar things added like fruits, fresh juice, milk and other similar items.
These are the items which carry most nutritional value.
