What You Eat In Private You Wear In Public
Nutrition doesn’t only mean preventing diseases, but it is about maintaining physical, mental, and emotional health as well. Foods like protein, tea, and coffee make you happy and motivated, while bad fat makes you lousy and irritated. And that’s why reading food labels and exercising go along with a balanced diet. Health is a multidisciplinary approach. At Diet Ghar, our healthcare professionals customize diet plans and exercise routines which suit you the best, to encourage your growth in all aspects of life.
Every cell right from our hair to the tip of our nails constitute proteins. We are in a constant need of protein as our body undergoes damage and general wear and tear. There are a million kinds of protein, which are made with amino acids, and are constructed as per the body needs. It might surprise you to know that even bones are made using protein. And therefore, consuming an adequate amount of protein every day is essential for proper functioning of the body. Rich sources of protein include egg, chicken, pulses, milk, fish, and meat.
- Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients that cannot be produced by the body and therefore needs to be consumed. They work along with each other and independently to process different actions in the body. Some of these vitamins and minerals are vitamin C, B complex, A, D, E, and K, iron, calcium, and magnesium.
Carbohydrate is of two types - simple sugars and fiber-rich polysaccharides. As you might have guessed, fiber-rich polysaccharides are good for health. They help reduce weight, balance blood glucose levels, and to pass stools easily. Simple sugars are converted to fats in our body and cause obesity. Rich sources of fiber-rich polysaccharides are whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. They are good sources of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Most people go on a low-fat diet thinking fat is bad, but it really isn't. There are two kinds of fat - good fat and bad fat. Good fat helps in weight loss and contains antioxidants that strengthen your immunity. These include olive oil, rice bran oil, avocado, cod liver oil, canola oil, and peanut oil. Bad fat is mostly dairy fat, which contains cholesterol and saturated fat that leads to hypertension, cardiovascular disorders, and high body cholesterol. These include butter, margarine, full-fat milk, and fried food.
