What does healthy eating mean? – Buki Kolade.

Hello Fam.

Welcome to a new month.

So to the talk for today. What is Healthy Eating?

Healthy eating means eating a variety of foods that give you the nutrients you need to maintain your health, feel good, and have energy. These nutrients include protein, carbohydrates, fat, water, vitamins, and minerals.

Healthy eating means consuming the right quantities of foods from all food groups in order to lead a healthy life.

Nutrition is important for everyone. When combined with being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight, eating well is an excellent way to help your body stay strong and healthy.

Diet is often referred to as some dietary regimen for losing weight. However, diet simply means what food we eat in the course of a 24-hour, one week, or one month, etc. period.

A good diet is a nutritional lifestyle that promotes good health. A good diet must include several food groups because one single group cannot provide everything a human needs for good health.

The crucial part of healthy eating is a balanced diet. A balanced diet – or a good diet – means consuming from all the different food groups in the right quantities.

Hence, my stand AGAINST “fad diets” or going on a funny “no-carb diet” or an “only protein-diet”…well except you have certain special dietary needs.

I eat from all food groups…I don’t overeat.
