Many of you are not aware how much the food you eat affects your life. Your body needs vital nutrients to survive, the most common and essential ones are proteins, carbohydrates and fats. All of these contain calories which are transformed to energy to fuel your body. Without these three nutrients your body can’t survive.
You will find most of your proteins are in meats such as chicken and other poultries, meats such as beef and pork, and fish and all types of seafood. Vegetable-based proteins are derived mostly from soy products such as tofu, and peanuts and other nuts such as almonds. Many dairy products such as cheese and eggs contain proteins.
Also, fats are important in your diet because without fats your brain will not function properly. So always make sure to eat fats, these can be derived from cheeses, butter and oils. Some fats are more beneficial than others for best brain functioning and it is also important to avoid excessive intake of fats in your diet that can cause too much weight gain.
With such a well-balanced diet your overall health will improve drastically if you have not had such balance, and the risk of you having diseases as you get older decreases. The key to optimum benefit is long-term consistency.
