There is a common saying that ‘you are what you eat’ – so it makes sense that the healthier you want to be the healthier your diet should be. However, in today’s fast-paced world many people are overlooking the basics of a healthy and nutritious diet.
When we say ‘diet’ we do not mean a regime to help you lose weight, but rather the sort of food you use to fuel your body each and every day. A healthy ‘diet’ does not mean eating less food, but rather making sure you get the right balance of nutrition you need for your lifestyle.
Your exact needs will depend on what you are doing each day – someone working construction, for example, will require more calories than someone who is sat at a desk all day. However, as we already said, it is not just about quantity, but also about quality.
