Earning money and social interactions occupy the top slots of the day to day activity schedule. So our health is ignored and the inner self is ruined. Poor food habits and lack of physical activities are depleting our body resources and stamina scarcity and fatigue are experienced by even the healthy-looking ones. Then how can we stop this physical erosion and lead a normal healthy life? Exercise and a balanced diet are the keys to a healthier you. Everyone should do yoga and exercise on a regular basis and intake of nutrient-rich diet is advised. Balanced Diet can improve our health and can change the way we look and feel.

What is a Balanced Diet?

A Balanced Diet is consuming food in the proper proportion that is enriched with all the nutrients required by the body for proper growth and functioning. Every individual has different dietary needs according to age, gender, and physical activities. A healthy individual needs to consume about 2000 calories every day so that he can maintain his optimum body weight. Men generally need more calorie intake than women and children need even lesser calorie intake. This calorie and nutrient meter are calculated by a dietician and a proper diet chart is then advised accordingly.

Here are the 7 Essential Components of a Balanced Diet

A balanced diet consists of 7 important nutrients which are extremely important for a human body. Here is the list of them.

  • Carbohydrate
  • Water
  • Protein- Amino acids
  • Fats
  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Omega-3 fatty acids

Carbohydrates are called “energy giving food” as they provide energy to the body. They are necessary for daily activities. Proteins are “bodybuilding food” and help in growth. Vitamins and Minerals are “protective foods” and help increase immunity and disease fighting capability of the body. Water, as we all know, is essential for our existence. About 70% of our body weight is actually water. You should drink atleast 8 – 10 glasses of water every day to stay hydrated and ensure that all the body organs perform at its best condition.
