Managing Your Weight Doesn't Have to be a Challenge

Your body needs nutrients to function properly. It is important to get the right amount of nutrients for a balanced nutrition. It is important to have a good balanced diet with all the essential nutrients as this provides the fuel for your daily activities. If you eat well, and understand the importance of a good nutrition, you can achieve a healthy, active lifestyle.

Here are some tips to maintain a healthy diet and good nutrition:

  • Always eat a healthy breakfast. After being asleep for hours, your body craves food. That’s why breakfast is such an important meal. It kick-starts your metabolism and provides energy to start your day.
  • Eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day to help prevent energy slumps and cravings for sugary snacks.
  • Having a healthy snack like fruits, vegetables, and small servings of protein, such as unsalted nuts, yogurt or low-fat cheese, during mid-morning and mid-afternoon, will help you avoid overeating at lunch of dinner time. This is important for a good nutrition.
  • Make an effort to shift your food choices towards a balanced, healthy diet. Aim to provide your body with a wide range of nutrients, including protein, whole grains and seven servings of fruits and vegetables, every day.
  • Another important component of good nutrition is protein. Protein is an essential nutrient and is contained in every part of the body. Protein has a number of different roles, including: building and maintaining body tissues, providing a source of energy, and controlling many of the important processes related to metabolism. Protein can be found in animal sources like meat, fish, poultry, eggs and dairy products, and plant foods such as beans, lentils and soy beans. Plant sources of protein contain less fat than animal protein. You should aim to eat two to three servings of protein from different sources every day.
  • Maintaining a good nutrition every day is important to keep your body functioning at peek performance and to be healthy and fit. Fiber is an important component of a healthy, balanced diet. It helps your digestive system process food and to absorb nutrients. Fiber is only found in foods that come from plants. Good sources of fiber include fruits, vegetables, beans, oats, whole-grain rice and pasta, whole wheat bread, nuts, seeds and brans.
  • For a healthy nutrition it is important to reduce levels of sugar, saturated fat and salt in your diet by checking the nutrition information on food labels and limiting the amount you consume.
  • And finally, another important part of a good nutrition diet is to ensure a regular intake of fluids to stay properly hydrated.
