Have you ever wondered how true is the saying “You are what you eat”? Observe yourself and you might start believing in it. This saying is true in most of the cases if not all. If you want to know whether you are eating healthy food or not, the best way is to make a list of what you consume daily and check what percent of the food you eat comes in the category of “Healthy Food”. It is common for people to think that they are eating right but when an analysis of the diet is done, most of them are surprised to know that they are actually not!

Imagine the most important thing in your life right now, eating healthy is as important as what you just thought about. Not only is it important to lead a healthy life but it also prevents us from many diseases and health risks. When we talk about healthy eating or a balanced diet, the very first thing that pops up in everybody’s mind is the food pyramid! Of course it is not possible to follow the food pyramid in real life but you should always try to keep following it as much you can.

A healthy or a balanced diet is one which consists of carbohydrates, proteins, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. You shouldn’t forget that water is equally important too. These nutrients are required so that your body can function healthily. A perfect or near to perfect combination of whole grains, meat, vegetables, fruits and plenty of water will give you all these nutrients. It is important to note here that healthy eating along with exercise does not only make you healthy but it also makes you look and feel good. To maintain your health till you grow old, it is important that you avoid processed/canned foods, junk food and saturated fats too.

If you want to know the answer to the question why are there portions of every type of food in a pyramid? Read further. It is important that your muscles and tissues remain strong as well as your immune system. Proteins are beneficial here, as they help in rebuilding the muscles and tissues if injured, and strengthening the immune system. Healthy carbs and fats fuel up your body so that when you work you are never inactive. And the vitamins and minerals help in functioning all your body parts and regulate the processes inside your body.

When we talk about eating healthy food, it includes healthy eating for all age groups. Whether they are toddlers, young boys and girls, adults or old people, it is important for their better functioning and healthy growth. It will also prevent them from diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, diabetes, cancer and many more.
