Nutrition is all about eating the right food in the right quantity at the right time, all balanced with a sufficient amount of exercise. A well-balanced meal has the right amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, minerals, and calcium. All these give the required amount of energy for the human body. Along with energy, one needs sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals for the skin, hair, and nails also. Proteins help in cell formation and the calcium keeps the bones healthy. Nuts contain healthy unsaturated fats which lower the bad cholesterol levels in the body. We often forget to include important food items like nuts, whole grains, and green leafy vegetables in our diet. A vegetarian diet chart includes milk, nuts, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. A non-vegetarian diet is inclusive of eggs and lean meat along with the vegetarian diet.

Important Facts

A nutritious meal easily adds up to 5 years to a person’s life span. While a lot of supplements are available in the market, it is dangerous to pop in any tablets. One should do so only after consulting a food expert. One should consult a nutritionist at least once a year and get a detailed analysis of one’s diet. A full body checkup is also recommended, just to rule out any minor or major problems. A nutritionist can give you a detailed food chart which would refill all the lost or less nutrition in your body. If possible one should also go for a complete body detoxification at a fitness center. This detoxification removes all the unhealthy deposits from the intestines. A nutritionist can guide you to have a diet of fruits and vegetables for a week to detoxify at home.

And there you have it. You might call yourself a nutrition expert at this point, no?
